    Oh and Nasser Hussain, the greatest of them all, nailed the Stokes situation as only he can.

    The ECB should pay him whatever and give him the keys to English cricket.

    The Nasser thing touches on it but generally I hope this whole affair really pushes Stokes on to properly realise his talent because he arguably hasnít yet. A player of moments rather than series.

    He's growing on me this series, in the same way Shane Warne did in 2005.

    Genius selectors done us no favours here but it means the brown hats get a fired up Curran for the pink ball day/nighter, so

    I do like players who react well under adversity, and who learn from previous failures. I like Kohli a lot, and he's learned from his last tour in England.

    What qualifiers one to be a specialist 6/7 that makes them worth selecting internationally, but not worth playing any higher than that?

    No idea. Especially when they arenít getting runs and dropping chances in the slips.

    Openers is a more pressing and longstanding issue. Iím sure Cook will chisel out a score at some point in the series but Jennings hasnít done anything and looks to be getting worse.
