I think it’s going to be a very strange start to the Ashes. Both teams will have had virtually no cricket thanks to the weather. That’ll be tough for the batsmen, but it’ll be unbelievably hard for the bowlers. They’re going to be physically wrecked after day 1.

How do we expect England to line up for the First Test, I'd go;

Burns
Hameed
Malan
Root
Stokes
Pope
Buttler
Woakes
Robinson
Leach
Anderson

I’d be surprised if they don’t play Wood in Brisbane.

A lot will depend on how much they think Stokes can bowl.

If he can take on a full fourth seamer roll, then one of the others could be omitted to allow the selection of Leach and give a bit more variety to the attack.

Bairstow v Pope is a bit of a toss-up

Pope wins hands down for me. His game is perfect for the Aussie pitches and Bairstow’s record over the last 3 years in Tests is terrible.

Ajaz Patel of New Zealand becomes only the third bowler to take all 10 wickets in an innings

Pity the New Zealand batsmen couldn’t help him - 62 All Out

Historic achievement and quite remarkable he'll be on the losing side

Can only see a drubbing in the ashes. 5-0, 4-0 or 4-1 Australian victory.

They have a very high quality bowling attack especially in their conditions and we have a horrific batting line up.

I think the key against Australia is hanging in. If we let them get up a head of steam we’ll get blown away, but if we can make it difficult for them to bowl us out and keep them in the field their bowling attack, as strong as it is, will wear itself out.
Their batting unit hangs on two players, they can be got at. If you put pressure on them they’ll crumble.

4-1 to Aus. I think we can win the day-nighter in Adelaide.

With India 69-9 at the close, Ajax still has a chance to better Jim Laker and take all 20
