Left-arm spinner Jack Leach shone with the bat for England against Ireland at Lord's.

"To me it is absolutely bogus".

"I'd like to keep that pace up (it only took 21 Tests) I don't think I will".

"Whoever misses out it's going to be tough".

Australia are weighing up whether to rejig the in-form incumbent attack by recalling Josh Hazlewood or Mitchell Starc as they pursue a 2-0 series lead.

The second Ashes Test kicks off this Wednesday night from Lord's at 8pm.

"We did not come here to win the Edgbaston Test, we've not come here to get a hundred at Lord's", Langer told reporters on Monday.

Cummins, James Pattinson and Siddle all enjoyed a decent break between the first and second Tests, having skipped the tour game in Worcester after helping bowl Australia to victory in Birmingham.

Jofra Archer says "not to expect miracles" if he makes his Ashes debut at Lord's - but insists red-ball cricket is his favourite format and that Justin Langer will have "another thing coming" if he thinks he will tire.

"The wicket is really interesting, it looks like it's going to be a really flat wicket to me", said Langer. Subsequently, he was ruled out of the second Test as well and is hoping to contribute in the last three Tests.

Moeen Ali has been dropped after a disappointing first test display. "Those back-to-back Test matches depends a lot on how much he bowls".

"But I am not sure it's humanly possible".

"Depends on how the games goes - how much batting there is in between". "Just concentrate on doing it then...this tweet is going to look a little silly if you if you go for 1/175!" the fan's tweet read.

Cummins delivered 44.3 overs in the series opener, his highest workload in an overseas Test since bowling 53 overs in Cape Town and 46.5 overs in Johannesburg on last year's ill-fated tour of South Africa. He's the No 1 bowler in the world.

Fellow paceman Olly Stone's back injury precludes his involvement though left- arm seamer Sam Curran retains his place in the squad, as does Joe Denly, whose spot came under scrutiny after scores of 18 and 11 last week.

"I kind of had it in the back of my mind but forgot about it until (Nathan) Lyon ran up to me and patted me on the back, ' Cummins said of his record".

"I guess we're lucky we've got six guys here who are a real chance of playing every game".
