Stoneman for Jennings. Crane for Dawson. Woakes for Finn

End of the line for Rash in test cricket? Particularly since Crane has hardly been outstanding in four day cricket this season. Also an admission that Dawson was the wrong call.

Sensible changes at last.

Woakes was an easy one mind you and you worry that Whitaker and his panel said to pick the left handed opener from Durham and got the wrong one first time around. Didn't the Aussies once pick a spinner Peter Taylor and everyone thought they had got the wrong bloke?

Crane is a better shout than Dawson. Longer term he may be the answer and some squad experience will help before he is needed. The team carries three players most games anyway so they may as well carry a young leggie instead of a useless top order batsman

Well it is likely to be the end of the line for Yorkshire as far as Rashid is concerned thanks to the county's poor use of his skills. They have not bowled him at the right times over several seasons, with obsession of rotating 4 seamers and have not used his batting potential. If we are relegated, I think he will then move to another Division 1 county and prosper with them and England.

It seems to me that Rashid is a 'confidence' player. Having had that confidence knocked by being overlooked will we get the best out of him for the remaining games he's available for?

Agree to some degree about Rashid . But this season he has 9 first class wickets @ 51 and an economy rate of 4.49 so it is hard to see how he warrants a test place .

Crane has 16 wickets @ 40 .

the reason he has been dropped for test cricket is no England captain has any confidence in him if he plays in Australia he will get nocked all over the place, and the same went at scarbourgh this week .

At the moment he not a viable selection for The Ashes so what's the point in picking him now? England rightly see him as a white ball specialist.

So he misses Yorkshire's last 3 matches because he is away playing white ball for England and thus does not get picked for the Ashes because he has no FC form this season.... vicious circle.

Seems to me little to choose between crane and rashid on stats alone. We may never know how good he could have been in home games or in Australia. He's only ever played against the best players of spin.
