It's going to look a bit fragile, isn't it? Like you say, Hameed's been in wretched nick, Jennings not much better, but I still think they'll probably go Cook-Hameed-Jennings-Root at the top. Bairstow, Stokes, Ali, Broad, Anderson and Wood more or less pick themselves, so room for one more. Ballance has absolutely caned it all summer, so he might be the most obvious choice, Rashid if it'll spin, but I just have a sneaky feeling for Ben Foakes to come in and keep as a left field option, let Bairstow worry about batting only.
Foakes is in terrific form, has played loads of Lions games, fills in admirably for Woakes in rhyming with Stokes, and plays for Surrey which can never be underestimated in the selectors' minds.
There's Nick Gubbins as a possible opener too, but we can't be picking a player called Gubbins, clearly.
