So our Ashes squad is announced. I would have taken Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Jos Buttler and Alex Hales.

The four I would have left behind probably would have been Craig Overton,  Mason Crane, Gary Ballance and James Vince.

Australia have a better top order, we have a better middle order and bowling attacks are pretty even so I expect a close result either way such as 2-2 or 2-1.

Really? You aren't expecting a whitewash with that squad announcement? As soon as Cook and Root go we'll be skittled out haha.

Bairstow, Stokes, Ali and Woakes is way better than the Aussie middle order.

Australia have four good seamers who are never all fit at the same time to play together, so we should be OK with Anderson/Broad leading the way.

Stoneman has shown some bits and pieces. Pop Root to 3 where captains tend to play (Smith, Williamson etc) and Ballance to 5 like he plays for Yorkshire. Australia have their own shakey top order guys such as Middlesborough lad Renshaw and the other Englishman Peter Handscombe.
