    My worry with Buttler is does he need to play four or five red ball games after a one day series to turn one day mode off
    Because if he does it’s a serious issue

    Hes very good in situations like this

    Cant play both him and bairstow though

    Drop one of them and pick pope for the winter to bat 6

    Problem with foakes is he hasnt scored any runs this season so they wont pick him

    In that scenario if they only drop one it has to be Bairstow. Buttler doesn't have a definitive technical issue, he's just been out of form for a while. Bairstow has the technical problem we've repeatedly discussed where he keeps getting bowled through the gate and has shown no signs of trying to fix the problem like Burns did with the short ball.

    Buttlers problem for me is uncertainty of how to bat

    When he has to block he can do it, showed that twice this series making 30 off 100+ balls

    When he has to play with the tail he can do it

    But when he has to just bat normally he just seems unsure of how to play and gets out to a half hearted shot

    He needs to find a tempo to bat at and stick with it like matt prior

    Our biggest problem is we don’t have some one who can score 150 each innings.

    Think I’d drop Bairstow if it’s one of Butler and him. Butlers has some decent innings this series and shows signs that he’s more than capable, also those no one you’d rather have in situations like this.

    On a dead pitch 170-3 to 205-7 is another embarrassing collapse but delighted buttler got runs honestly im a fan of both him and bairstow but know bairstow should be out now and barring a miraculous season for him playing red ball cricket should be nowhere near for a long time his odi improvement has devolved him as a test cricketer so much i remember when his weakness in test cricket was the short ball. Jos i think will struggle long term as his natural game is attack and he will have to defend a lot more if he learns to balance it better every team would want him and if hes the wicket keeper and batting i think that would inspire him more hes also not had a set role/batting position in the team this summer. Recently when the talk has been dropping buttler he has stepped up wonder if always having him under pressure (captaincy) will bring out the best in him.

    Yeah I've been disappointed with Woakes today, hasn't been at his best.

    Never been a fan of Woakes tbh. I could quite easily switch off and do something else when he’s bowling. I’d have Curran in ahead of him all day. Left armers give you that something special and every team needs one in their locker

    In a summer full of negatives (for the Test side anyway) this has to be the high point
    Finding successors for Jimmy and Broady was a major thing for us and we have Australia 166-7 with Archer and Curran taking all the wickets
    Fantastic by the young lads

    Well done lads, fought well today
    Got to get to 250 here, then you’ve got Aus chasing a very decent total in the fourth innings

    Didn't see the catch initially, that's an absolute screamer from Burns

    What a shocking decision that was, clearly pitched a mile outside leg
