Some questions (Answers below) -
Do you bring back Flintoff, if he's fit, and let him bat at eight with Ambrose at seven?
How many overs a day can you expect Freddie to be able to bowl?
It's a bit tough, but do you drop Ambrose and bring Prior back in to bat at five or six so Freddie can go seven in a five man bowling attack?
Is it time to bring back Harmison to replace Anderson, Sidebottom or Broad?
When do you consider bringing back Simon Jones?
Drop one or both of Bell and Collingwood, thus giving them the same sort of 'kick up the arse' that worked for Strauss, and appears to have worked for Harmy?
Do you do the same with Cook?
Which batsmen do you bring in if you drop Bell and/or Collingwood? Carberry? Key? Denly? Ramprakash?
Can you continue with a four man bowling attack against South Africa?
Is it time to start thinking about Rashid?
