More likely.Just been trying to envisage England's team meeting to pick a team for the 4th Test.
Openers - what do we think?
Maybe Jimmy Anderson and Stuart Broad? They couldn't be worse than Hameed and Crawley.
OK don't mind it. What about number 3?
Well given the fact that Joe will probably be in the middle by the 4th over anyway, perhaps we could try Woakes at first drop. Or perhaps we could promote Sundries to 3, given the fact that he was our 3rd best batsman last year.
Obviously Joe comes in at 4. Maybe we could clone him, so he can also come in at 5.
Great. So Stokes drops to 6. Can we get Alan Knott to come out of retirement for 2 games? He might be nearly 76, but I'm sure he still moves his feet behind the stumps better than Jos Buttler.
Good, so Malan drops to 8. Hopefully by the time he comes to the crease, the ball will be 20 overs old, and he can stay in the middle for a bit longer.
Nice thinking. Burns at 9 - the ball should be 23 overs old by now, giving him more of a chance to reach double figures.
Then we can decide between Robinson and Leach for 10 and 11, depending on who can get the pads on first.
Finally the drinks waiter. Give the job to anyone except Buttler - he'll probably drop those as well.
is getting covid worse than embarrassing ourselves again? Maybe we should all go to some superspreader events and we can end the whole series.
