An Ashes test down under is on my bucket list of semi or full retirement things to do. Not sure Iíd want to actually sit in any of the stadiums being unmercifully ridiculed by the convicts. This has 5-0 written all over it and the limited overs games donít look to promising either.

Limited overs will be fine, we're good at that.

The tests will not.

Twitter as quoted by the BBC:

ĎJack Leach averages 61 against left-handers. Makes sense you wait until there are two of them at the crease to bring him on after what happened at the Gabba.í

Assuming as I must that the veracity of the quote is accurate, you really do have to question Rootís captaincy here. Possibly our greatest ever batsman. But a good captain? I have to doubt it. I fear this pressure we have put on them is going to go to waste, would love to eat humble pieÖbut letís be honest, I probably donít have to

When it comes to cricket Iím half way between a layman and an armchair fan, so Iím perfectly happy for it to be pointed out that Iím missing something by someone more itk. But fuck me is this not obvious that Root is having a captaincy nightmare? Heís murdered all the momentum we created by putting Leach on, surely? This appears to me to be shocking captaincy. Iíd suggest it might be time for him to concentrate on batting but who would replace him as captain? Stokes would probably be the only option from this lot, or maybe Bairstow? Past that Iím lost

England captains traditionally resign when their batting drops off or when they've fallen out with everyone. Actual tactical acumen is considered optional, which is really odd when you consider how much Brearley is deified.

I think Root will probably go after this series, but you're quite right about the lack of alternatives. Burns would have been the other guy, long term county captain, but they've just dropped him.
