From a cricketing viewpoint I would have picked Plunkett instead of Finn in the first place.
However, I think having his knuckles wrapped for being a dirty stop out might have cost him the place.

Mark Wood is a possibility if he's considered fit enough, with Porter injured I can't see past Plunkett otherwise.

Hard to see beyond Liam.

Wood wouldn't play 5 tests, Footitt quick but very erratic, what about one of the Currans?

Tom Curran selected.

It's amazing how so many players can get injured playing so little cricket. Finn, Ali, Wood (not fit enough to be called up). Perhaps they should just play cricket to keep fit

Some very promising young players in the squad.

However, very concerning and very poor management that so many have no understanding of England test cricket.

The Ashes away is not the time for Foakes, Curran, C Overton to learn.

They should have been played over the course of the summer series.

I just worry that Bayliss knows so little about the first class game in England that his first thought is "that bloke from Surrey who bowled well in that ODI" even if he had an indifferent domestic season. This Ashes series could well end up being make or break for Bayliss. The progress made by the ODI/T20 squad is clear, but you even wonder how much of that is down to him, and how much is the influence of Farbrace.

I agree with your fears about Bayliss, but you could hardly pick Plunkett on the evidence of English first-class cricket in 2017.

Hopefully Curran will benefit from being around the Test squad and won't be called into action anywhere other than in the nets.
