My team for the first test would be as follows…

Burns
Hameed
Malan
Root
Pope
Stokes
Butler
Woakes
Wood
Robinson
Jimmy


Going without a spinner as we need to shore up the batting with two genuine all rounders.
Root can turn his arm over to good effect as shown in India last winter.
Butler has moved way ahead of Jonny B in terms of wkt/batsmen.

I don’t see anything in Leach or Bess sadly.

Adil Rashid would be my choice but he doesn’t do Test Cricket anymore z

I've not really thought too deeply on the ashes just yet.
I will side with captain in that you do need a spinner.
We don't have a decent spinner I agree but would go with Leech.

I’m just talking about the first test obviously.


The Gabba isn’t known for turn which is my reasoning.
