Sibley could do with a score here.

Since the first Test in India (where he played well and scored 80-odd), he's managed 16, 16, 3, 0, 7, 2, 3 and 0.

Had a run of 4, 2 and 0 in Sri Lanka too although he did finish with an unbeaten 50.

No surprise, credit to him from a character perspective though - he played well through a shitstorm

We've recalled Bess to the squad, which seems weird. If we need cover for Leach then there are plenty of spinners who've performed better this season, he's averaging 41 with the ball. Parkinson just took a 10-fer for Lancs.

I can only think the logic is that Bess probably won't play T20 for Yorkshire (he rarely did for Somerset) whereas Parkinson will for Lancs, so if it's just cover and they're not going to play, Dom isn't missing out anything. But then I don't think Virdi plays T20 either.

Overton will probably play on Thursday too, he got done for racist on-field behaviour a few years back.

Maybe we're building a Farage XI. Norman Tebbit to coach, Boycott to commentate.

Vaughan as batting coach.

John "blackface" Emburey (two apartheid tours) as spin coach.

Edit: My apologies to John Emburey, he did not dress up in blackface on looking it up. He dressed as a member of the KKK, much better.

Twitter is a covid like virus for which the only cure is not to participate. Loathsome application which all sportsmen and women should avoid if at all possible.

You could, perhaps, just not be a racist or make racist comments.
Fair point. As I posted before, I made many a faux pas through ignorance when I was a child as is the case in the latest development the alleged comments are made from an under 16. I quickly learned as I grew older and a little wiser and more respectful, I am sure you agree that we all do. However any comment I made was not recorded for posterity by Twitter. I would be very surprised if any of us on here have not made an inappropriate comment in their lives that would be deemed offensive by 2021's standards. Learn from your mistakes, don't repeat them. We all make them.

England win the Toss and will bat
Ollie Stone in for Robinson the only change.

NZ make several changes

Jimmy Anderson breaks the England Test appearance record.
Amazing for a bowler, 162 appearances.
