Re: England vs Australia 5th test

England's best batting performance of the series,shame it took too long for them to finally show their talents. Denly and Buttler will be on the plane this Autumn,the jury's still out on Bairstow and Woakes in my opinion,Sam Curran's got to go for his all round ability,fair enough his batting's not ...

Curran caught down the legside for 17,leads over 350 though,so a flourish from the tail along with Jos should get that to around 400.

Bairstow gone again. Nowhere near our best keeper, and surely can't claim to be a better wk batsman than Foakes or Buttler now. Could do with another 100 runs, otherwise it's all down to Smith. If he makes 150+ then the the other 10 might well scramble enough to take them beyond a 360 / 400 target....

Just stop him scoring by bowling wide down leg. Takes him out of the game completely. Very inspecting and against the spirit of the game but NOT cheating.
