Hales can feel hard done by. Yes, he transgressed off the field, but he and Roy are quite similar temperamentally. Hales must have made enemies of Morgan and/or the selectors. There doesn’t seem to be anything he can do to force his way back in while Roy seems undroppable even when the side has had to carry him for months
Hales had the Bristol incident, then there was a sex text incident of some sort and he was told he was on his last warning. He then just before the World Cup got banned for testing positive for cocaine and that was that.

The management deemed him a liability and I think he is effectively a pariah from the national side. I’m not sure he has any route back in regardless of form.

People seem to be arguing the case of who should open with Roy, Buttler or Bairstow. The way Roy is performing what's wrong with Buttler and Bairstow opening, a potentially explosive combination.

Good to see the women’s big bash final is the 2 teams who both have 2 England players each , funny that ......pity though Mel Jones and the other Aussie commentators do not like to give much praise to the English players especially Mel Jones whose hatred of English players is annoying

So Sam was chosen ahead of Moeen, question is how does Moeen justify his inclusion in the squad? He usually bowls only one over and rarely succeeds with the bat. Unfortunately he no longer seems to be the player he used to be.
Because he is asian Removed
Hey BBC. How about a story referring to the commentator you’ve suspended for using the word ‘handbags’ when describing a fight in a game.

Utterly disgusting and it is about time you were defunded. You lot are out of control.

If it wasn't serious the BBC and anything to do with women in football/cricket and rugby would be a a laughable joke. As it is.No matter how they try to 'big it up'.

Yes fully agree but over on sky it’s ok for commentator to spit at football supporters and given new contract

Exactly.
Our batting line up is so good can't we afford 1 extra decent specialist T20 spinner because we will need one in India - we cannot expect to win it with just Rashid

We have to call time on Ali - he's gone in the head - it's obvious

If Stokes is in as an all rounder (I'm smiling - his Intl T20 bowling record is bad and his domestic one is average at best) then surely it's worth a risk

Agreed, annoyed that Crane and Parkinson weren't brought over. Though we are playing 5 t20s against India.

Think it's hitting peak Bairstow around here...still pretty likely to get bowled through the gate for 0 though...

Obviously what I was talking about Dunc. Who cares about the corrupt, rigged IPL? You do get some people who shouldn’t be allowed an opinion on here

If you want a good laugh, read some football fan opinions on HYS! It’s unbelievable some of it...

Anyway, tomorrow. Same pitch so two spinners a must yeah? But Moeen not in great form. Malan, not reliable enough for 4 overs? Doesn’t Archer bowl left arm spin in the nets?
