Roar LIVE is back again today with former Australian cricketer Jason Krejza and we’re going to be picking our premature Ashes side.

The India series is done and dusted, so instead of crying over spilt milk we’re going to focus all our efforts on bringing back that sacred little urn.

There’s scarce five-day cricket to be played between now and the first Ashes Test so we’re unusually well placed to be picking our best XI.

We’re going to need your help so we’ve got a few questions for you:

1. Who was the biggest surprise packet of the Indian series?

2. Who was the most disappointing Australian player?

3. What changes do you want to see for the upcoming series?

The series in India was a rollercoaster that nobody saw coming and has left selectors with a myriad of questions to answer before the Ashes.

The emergence of Glenn Maxwell and Patrick Cummins, Nathan Lyon and Steve O’Keefe’s moments in the sun and Steve Smith’s irrepressible brilliance have all been fascinating talking points – but only eleven players can take the field.

Get your answers in the comment section and we’ll get to as many as we can this afternoon.


Roar Live will be streamed this afternoon at 5:45 on The Roar’s Facebook page. It will also be available as a podcast on Soundcloud and iTunes.
