Burns and Denly potentially to tour Sri Lanka according to the Telegraph . Happy with that if so. Denners bowls useful leggies and bats at #3.

Ben Stokes Test batting average of 34.13 now above his bowling average of 33.10. Both heading in the direction of a very fine Test match all-rounder

Well played Cook. You ARE a legend.

Shouldn’t be selected for the Oval.

It’s international sport not a ******* benefit match.

Yes indeed, should his averages become 40 vs 25-30. Also an amazing fielder.

Until then heís a decent player who is very occasionally touched by genius.

I think itís a great opportunity to blood a new opener.

I canít see the point of playing a bloke who doesnít want to play anymore.

Itís a team game, itís an international game against the best team in the world, itís not a benefit match.

It would be hilarious if they dropped him going forward. Love Cook for what heís done but have never understood premature retirement announcements. Smacks of me me me. Iím sure it wasnít Cookís idea though. He seems a genuinely nice bloke

One of my good friends is a former manager of the England team. I happened to see him today, and he told me he is sure that "the powers" would have suggested to Cook that he might like to announce his retirement, rather than to lose his place by being omitted - in other words, to jump in a dignified way rather than be pushed in a less dignified way.

Push before shove indeedy. Thing is, weíre pushing him off without anyone good enough to take over. Weíre not really in a position to shove our numerically best batsman off.

Bit plop when he could have done the Aussie thing and moved down the order as well. That clear vision that never addressed the opener situation and had us persisting with Malan at four instead of a refreshed Cook.

BTW - Jenningsy retained for the Oval. Must just be for comedy value now.
