Oh, this again. Bit tedious. Keep the dust, all we want is the trophy. The dust held at Lords is a good reminder on why its there in the first place, so best you keep that.

PS - 3-0 :D

Question is keep the same team and go for 5-0, or rest a few up and blood a few newbies? Hope we don't lose the toss again. :wink:

Oh and Woakes for Stokes I suppose.

I would also add Rashid to the squad for Ali.

I thought Overton wasn't that bad in last two tests.

Broad & Cook haven't done much

Both had bad games but they're quality so you let them go.

Some fishing spots don't need any bait whatsoever.

All I said was 3-0

We even let you win the toss each time. :)

Shall we play with just nine or ten next time to even things up a bit?

We picked the Marshes to do that.

And then they got good.
