Looking at englands batting line up at moment it just doesnt look solid as a batting unit what so ever. Yes they are very strong lower middle order to bail them out in Bairstow, Stokes, Moeen etc.. however they seriously need to address the batting at the top and early middle order. They have tried out so many different players recently and pretty much all of them have had a little sucess but then endless failures. Currently watching players like Jennings who looks like a good stroke player but isnt technically great. Then you have ballance who just looks like a very limited player and in longterms isnt going to score to many big runs internationally even if hes scoring runs for fun in county cricket.

Nick Compton, Micheal Carberry, Sam Robson, Adam Lyth, Alex Hales, Ben Duckett, Keaton Jennings, Gary Ballance, Haseeb Hameed thats alot of players that have been tried out in last year with very little sucess. In case of Hameed he has been injured and i will reserve my thoughts on him as he may come good as a test player once he regains form.

England need to find stabilty and quality in batting order, espcially also going forward whenever cook retires as well, which not be for a few years but still the batting looks very flimsy at moment.
