Overton in for Woakes, Denly to open with Burns, Roy dropping to four. Starc in for Khawaja for the Aussies.

very strange decision about Overton! has he been ripping it up in CC?
Denley/Roy swap very good idea.

Personally I would have gone with Curran instead of Overton. Woakes has been underbowled somewhat tbf

I agree wolvo, would have liked to see left arm seamer in as well.

KRO
A good friend of mine, reasons that Curran isn't being looked at because he's left arm over....thus creating extra roughage for their star bowler Lyon....Picking Starc now gives them that extra rough, would you want to create even more with Curran playing?? It's a tough one.

Overton's on 32 wickets @ 21 so not bad. Would have preferred Curran though.

TMS suggested he was in the last match.

He bowled abysmally in the first innings and don’t remember much about the second innings, except it was Stokes that stood up when it was needed. Plus Woakes looks shot batting just now.

Aussies win the toss and bat. Starc in for Siddle.
Apparently Australia haven't lost in Manchester since 1981 (3 wins, 3 draws).
Lunch predictions then

72/3

One for Archer, two for Broad
