Disagree up to a point.Positives - finally, a bit of pace from an England bowler!
We might not actually need him for the Ashes.....the mid-80s swing and seam merchants will likely be as effective.....but we're sure as hell going to need that pace if we want to be competitive in South Africa next winter. So let's get Mark Wood into cotton wool asap.
Oh, and we might win this game.
Negatives - still can't find an opener. Jennings and Burns both averaging 25 now (after 16 and 6 Tests respectively, which is a fair sample size to be judged on). And needless to say, that's not enough. Desperately need to uncover some new talent at the top of the order......
