Might be an idea to give David Willey a debut. No pressure, likely to swing, gives England a left armer

@RafiDover Willey's injured
by strangepsbcric5/22/2016 10:31:57 AM
Oh dear Surrey. Oh dear oh dear.

@nickcricket Stokes yet to be passed unfit anyway, but if he is I imagine they'll send for Woakes - they'll want to keep the batting line-up as long as they can and Woakes the nearest like-for-like. Tom Curran a possibility, or perhaps Barker or Coles if they want bowling all rounders, but doubt they'll send for a newbie with back to back Tests leaving little preparation time.

oh yeah, silly me
by Rafi Dover5/22/2016 10:32:22 AM
Also oh dear Middlesex because they didn't beat Surrey or Hampshire.
by StaggerBreaths5/22/2016 10:32:22 AM
Willey would be a left field pick wouldn't he? Okay he plays for Yorks which guarantees selection, but he has hardly set the 4 day game alight.
by Dave Brown5/22/2016 10:32:49 AM
@DaveBrown ... and he's injured.
by SDHoneymonster5/22/2016 10:33:06 AM
Which renders the question of "Willey or won't he" rather redundant.
by StaggerBreaths5/22/2016 10:33:57 AM
SDHoneymonster - They try to avoid making new caps if they can't give a player a run, Personally I would call-up Woakes, like you say he is like for like. Also think he is a lot better than his record shows. Lots of doubters of his own around and a few looking for someone new to moan about now Bairstow looks International quality
by nickcricket5/22/2016 10:35:36 AM
I am still not sure Willey is in Yorkshires best bowling attack
by nickcricket5/22/2016 10:36:22 AM
So Nick, you're saying - put Woakes in the team so that people have someone to complain about?
by StaggerBreaths5/22/2016 10:37:05 AM
Compton's still there, I give Vince one more Test before people start complaining about him as well.
by StaggerBreaths5/22/2016 10:37:44 AM
StaggerBreaths - Yeah give the people what they want! and it nice to have someone to moan about while England are bowling
by nickcricket5/22/2016 10:38:25 AM
thinking about the virtues of resting players, or not, are there any bowlers playing who could get to the magic 1000 wicket mark. I know Caddick did it a few year back (quite a few) and possibly Chapple for Lancs, but is that something of the past?
by Dave Brown5/22/2016 10:38:34 AM
Willey's not good enough at the red ball stuff yet and he's injured. Woakes is the obvious choice if we replace with an all rounder.
