I am guessing Lawrence thinks a Surrey badge will help England selection (bit like a NSW one in Australia) though it appears his time may have come and gone with Brook shooting past him.

Ah , Alec Stewart of Surrey.
33 Ashes Tests , 22 defeats
7 Ashes series ... lost the lot
Chelsea CUNT

Lawrence hasn't kicked on and Essex have a few other younger batsmen who look the business so no huge loss. He'll have to up his game to pay regularly for Surrey but the extra money will come in handy for him I'm sure. There must be a problem with Foakes, as he has been ditched pretty quickly after every chance he's been given. Perhaps he not very popular with team mates.

Soon the entire top 7 will be Surrey produced talent!

Not while the numpty selectors, pick Bairstow over Foakes.

You can't blame Dan Lawrence for wanting to level up in life?

Had a great afternoon with my missus Aussies relatives that are over... her Unc (Arsenal) and cousin (WHU) are massive sport fans ... including their cricket .... they are adamant they will lose this summer... the Stokes effect ... same way a crocked Botham would turn up and still do the psychoigical effect over them... actually for convicts were decent HUMBLE people... unlike the resident unhumble cunt on here...

Surrey have signed Dan Lawrence for next season.

I don’t know why the rest of the county sides bother with new talent 🤷🏻‍♂️

SURREY have just chased down 501 to beat Kent.

hahahaha!

Foakes showing why England have made a huge mistake in dropping him.

Re: England v Ireland Only Test @ Lords June 1-4
Astounding catch by the 6ft 6 all-rounder
Umpires - Englishman & Kiwi 3rd umpire - Englishman (hardly 'neutral')
Gill should be looking at a 6 Test ban for his reaction.

Whatever happens tomorrow its been an excellent warm up
Australia have looked sloppy (dropped catches, wickets off no-balls, some wayward bowling) and definitely SHORT OF A GALLOP
Hopefully this sharpens them up for next week
A better team than 2019 (Carey for Paine, an actual all-rounder in Green) so with England confident we will see all the doomsayers about Test cricket put in their place. No one cares who wins t20 REALLY so it can fuck off into its place as hit and giggle 'entertainment' & make way for proper cricket.

Moeen it is.

Along with the dropping Foakes for Bairstow it's back to the JOBS FOR THE BOYS all over again for England.

Re: England v Ireland Only Test @ Lords June 1-4
Given that Leach is the only calm in a team that goes hell for leather, the replacement has to be Dawson.

The reason Leach is the only ever present bowler in every Test under Stokes so far is he offers control whilst the fast bowlers attack. Dawson is the safest bet to do that job. And he can bat as well, one positive over Leach.

Moeen can fuck off.

Re: England v Ireland Only Test @ Lords June 1-4
Papers are saying Stokes has called MOEEN & offered him the job.
Personally if he didnt say YES on the spot I'd move on.
The BAAAAZBALL choice would obviously be the youngster Rehan Ahmed

Re: England v Ireland Only Test @ Lords June 1-4
Will Jacks is no where near a test quality bowler, if he plays the Aussies will target him and take him apart.

Alex G 7:51 Sun Jun 4
Re: England v Ireland Only Test @ Lords June 1-4
Interesting where England turn (pun intended) for spinner for the series.

Moeen doesn't seem at all interested in playing tests any more, similar for Rashid.

Ahmed seems to be ear marked as one for the future, is throwing him in as lead spinner too much at this point in his development.

Which then leaves a few unconvincing back ups... Dom Bess, Liam Dawson, Mason Crane, Will Jacks. None will have the Aussies quaking in their boots.

Re: England v Ireland Only Test @ Lords June 1-4
Well, it wasn't too pointless as a "Test".

Leach picked up an injury and is now completely ruled out of the Ashes.

Re: England v Ireland Only Test @ Lords June 1-4
You can only beat what is in front of you but reckon England would have wanted Brook, Stokes & Bairstow to have some red ball crease time.
Good work Ireland to keep them in the HUTCH

Re: England v Ireland Only Test @ Lords June 1-4
Tongue, 5 wickets for 60 odd, on test debut. Good bit of county trundling.
