I'm not sure England know their best bowling attack. Broad & Anderson, for sure, although of course the latter only bowled 4 overs in the whole of the 2019 series. Stokes, yes, but he's almost an accidental bowler these days. The role of 3rd pace bowler & spinner are very much undecided. Neither Wood & Archer are reliable, fitness-wise. Can't see Overton or Curran being effective Down Under. Woakes is a victim of the ongoing squad-rotation. I guess there are high hopes for Robinson who bowled really well in English conditions this summer.

Spinner-wise, I can't see Leach & Bess taking 10 wickets between them in the whole series. Neither of them can hold an end down.

I expect we'll see England play Anderson, Broad, Robinson, Woakes & Stokes in the 1st Test with Root as 'the spinner'.

All this just emphasises just how good the England pack of Hoggard, Harmison, Flintoff, Jones & Giles were in 2005. They really worked well as a collective unit.
Unless Leach or Bess have an extraordinary epiphany, sadly Root will probably be our best spin option. Which puts a whole load of extra pressure on his shoulders. One of those two has to step up to the mark, but I won't hold my breath.

I think batting wise, it's simply a contest of Smith & Labuschagne vs Root. The others - on both sides - are, on the whole, just chaff.
Bowling wise, it's a different story.
David Warner? Nasty bit of work but not exactly chaff

You're right. A Test average of 48 is very much 'wheat'. I guess I'm hoping that he replicates his 2019 Ashes form, where he scored 95 runs in 10 completed innings & one of those was 61.

Honestly think Leach is so underrated. He's never let the side down really, and when you consider he gets taken on these long tours to basically carry the drinks it's not bad going to be averaging under 30 with the ball, he must struggle for rhythm with how little cricket he's played. He's miles, miles better than Bess.

My lineup would be:

Burns
Hameed
Malan
Root
Stokes
Bairstow
Buttler
Robinson
Wood
Leach
Anderson

Green top and grey skies await next week apparently. If Joe Root wins the toss, will he do a Nasser?

If he does, the odds of Wood doing a Simon Jones are even apparently!
