I think after the discussion there is some consensus around which most of us could live:

Ali, Byrom, Bartlett, Hildreth, Abell, Banton, Davies, Gregory, Cove, vdM, Brooks

It isn't ideal, but none of the suggestions are because of the impossibility of replacing Leach and Bess on a pitch that will probably turn. I would be happy with Davies at six or seven. There are arguments either way.

Whatever the team, have a toss, and if we win it then bat. There are only rare occasions when I would insert, and this isn't one of them. If the pitch is going to deteriorate, use the best of it, and get the runs on the board early (Ask WG). Inserting would put huge pressure on our depleted bowling attack, and on our batsmen if Warwickshire got away. Runs on the board would take the pressure off vdM and Azhar and give them time to apply some pressure on batsmen facing the pressure of a decent total on a pitch that is unlikely to improve.
