I think Lyon will have a part to play in the Ashes.
I wonder how England will line up, the top order is no where near settled. Cook seems to be all or nothing, who he opens with is a mystery. Granted Stoneman got a half century in the last test but it its a much bigger challenge facing the Aussie pace bowlers in their conditions. Westly is no where near good enough. Root is the only one settled in there, scores runs for fun. Stokes at 5 is too high for me. I like Bairstow but I think his place in the team is safe as the focus is on the top of the order. I cant think of a better number 7 in the world over Moeen. Then in to the tail. Broad is a walking wicket just now, not been the same since he got hurt down under, will be interesting to see how he copes this time round.
Should be an interesting series as both sides have problems!
