Maybe I have an old school approach but I really think that you should play your best keeper in every test, but that's not Bazzball is it?

Jack Russell says the same in today's I paper.

I donít even think itís just about being the best keeper. Itís also about chipping away at what made Bairstow brilliant last year - he was focussed on his batting. It might work out, but I worry it loses Foakes and diminishes Bairstow.

Think it is incredibly harsh on Ben Foakes.  It's not like he hasnt scored runs, on the contrary he's actually played some pretty vital innings over the past year.

Really hope Robinsonís ankle scan doesnít indicate anything serious. Heís arguably our most important bowler this summer.

The injuries in the bowling attack are mounting up; Jimmy, Archer, Robinson, Stone and who knows if Stokes will bowl a ball in anger again? Itís concerning with the Ashes just a month away. I hope that they have Mark Wood on light duties at Durham!

Nor an England shirt is my concern. Hope he doesn't become a permanent 12th man as that's a waste of his season.

Honestly if they are not going to include him in the XI he should be released. At this stage in his career he needs to play cricket rather than be 12th man. 12th man should be up and coming youngster who's just missed out on selection.

I imagine that theyíre resting Woakes to preserve his fitness for the Ashes in case Jimmy or Robinson arenít fit. They also get to see how Tongue gets on in test cricket. He has the ability to be a surprise package against the Aussies, heís pretty quick.
