Re: England v Australia 4th Test

Same squad, but we are a bowler short with Stoke’s shoulder problem. So he will occupy Roy’s batting place and Woakes or Curran (on his home ground) will come in.

Maybe time to consider signing some younger lads who are hungry to play, rather than the likes of Drinkwater whose careers are on a downward spiral and happy to sit on their backside picking up their 100 grand a week?
