And an­other thing...

SLOG­GING IS NOT A REAL TEST

What a point­less ex­er­cise the one day in­ter­na­tional se­ries be­tween Eng­land and Pak­istan was. Those in charge would have served the pub­lic bet­ter by hav­ing a fifth and de­ci­sive Test match rather than a bunch of one-sided slog­ging con­tests. If Test flop Alex Hales (above) keeps his place on the back of break­ing Eng­land’s one-day in­di­vid­ual scor­ing record I’ll be mas­sively ir­ri­tated.

RASH­FORD SHOULD RUSH BACK

Mar­cus Rash­ford’s hat-trick for Eng­land Un­der 21s should be enough to pro­pel the young­ster back into the se­nior squad. With Harry Kane hav­ing hit a brick wall af­ter two great sea­sons and Daniel Stur­ridge in pos­ses­sion of a brit­tle body, Eng­land need a nat­u­ral goalscorer.
