There’s more pressing issues to be addressed than the County scene.
Why are the ECB after largely ignoring pyjama cricket for the near 50 years of its existence suddenly prioritizing it over the test team? England don’t even have a bowling coach at the moment and Bayliss is a one day coach, he’s not up to the job of coaching a test team. Liam Plunkett is in the One Day Squad. How can Plunkett not be selected ahead of the hopeless Tom Curran or Jake Ball.
You can’t dispute the fact that Anderson apart the bowling has been awful but England have been decimated by injuries and absences. Roland-Jones and Steve Finn injured just before the tour, Jamie Overton, Mark Wood and Plunkett who would offer genuine pace either injured/coming back from injury/held back for one days, the promising Craig Overton and Chris Woakes getting injured and ruled out of the tour and Ben Stokes not even getting to the starting blocks.
General trend for a long time now in test cricket is increasingly few wins overseas. Reverting to longer tours and proper matches against Sheffield Shield teams on each of the test pitches before the test matches would help in that regard but not going to happen.
It’s a similar issue for Australia in England now, not playing the likes of Notts, Yorkshire and Lancashire before test matches at Trent Bridge, Headingley and Old Trafford, like they used to.
