Stokes breaks silence to target Hayden

Hayden:"I look down half of the list and I honestly don't even know who half of these guys are."

Stokes replies with: "Hayden says he doesn't know who half our squad is … only 2 from the quad haven't played at International level," Stokes wrote, questioning Hayden's standing as a cricket commentator.

Guys like Khawaja, S Marsh, and Ballance should be shown as examples to our selectors not to write off a player permanently because he had been dropped from the national team few times in past. A player keep going in and out of the national team does not mean he is not progressing.

^^ Keeper batsman. I heard his name first before England toured us last year. Out there as an understudy of Bairstow I guess?

Can't blame Hayden for not knowing many of those names.

I'm sorry, but there's just too many Ashes series that I've literally lost count now.

England looking impressive so far.

Stoneman and Vince handling the great Starc with utmost respect and charm so far.

Aussie bowling looks hapless; they should pray that Starc doesn't get injured midway through this series.

Only 1 wicket will be enough for the stack of cards(English top-order) to implode.

Smith was like, this bowling attack reminds him of the 2013-2014 ashes attack.

No, Australia are impenetrable at home. We have not lost a match at the GABBA in the last 28 years.
