Sub, it's very harsh to say that England have gone back to the revolving door and ineptitude of the 1990s.  A marked feature of the last few years has been their consistency in selection, which has paid dividends, and lest we forget, got them to the top of the world rankings (although imho this is only a statistics and doesn't mean a great deal).  Taylor and Bairstow are two very promising young players who the ECB clearly like the look of, and want to bring into the test set up.  They are young, and will take time to find their feet, but they deserve that chance.  Incidentally, Prior is easily good enough to bat at 6.

Well yes, I'm not against young players getting a chance,  but going with two untested batters to go with the patchy form of some of the others  is kind of risky IMO.       

Anyway Bairstow proving me wrong at the minute on 95 not out.
