    2nd Test: England v South Africa at Nottingham, Jul 14-18, 2017


    0 Not allowed!
    England 1-0 up in the four match series, after an unusual Test Match at Lords, with so many wickets falling to spin, and England winning by a huge 211 run margin.

    South Africa have captain Faf du Plessis back after a paternity break, and need to find a replacement for Kasigo Rabada who is suspended.

    England will be unchanged.

      Ball will most likely swing about at TB. Can't really see the logic in retaining Dawson over another seamer, beyond continuity, for continuity's sake.
      The above post is simply my opinion. I am not bullying you, should it differ from your own.

      Some speculation that batting first will be tricky, with a reasonable grass covering, a bit of breeze and clouds overhead*... an interesting choice for the captains.

      (* on the other hand that is coming from Nasser Hussain!)

      Pitch has plenty of juice by the looks of it

      If our four best seamers can't do the job - what's the point of having another?

      Joe Root proves he is a useless tosser, South Africa will bat - brave decision by Faf?

      SA have stiffened the middle order, with de Kock in at four.

      Its a fair point, but somehow I always feel Stokes should be considered a bonus, rather than one of four to rely on. He has a great knack of taking wickets but lacks control and can be very expensive.

      Either way, I'm sure this attack will comfortably win the game, but entirely unconvinced by Dawson. If we were to play two spinners, then Rashid surely deserves to be ahead of him?
