That’s the way Dominic Cork reckons England should have gone for their two-Test series with New Zealand, which begins at Lord’s on Thursday, May 21.Sky Sports pundit Cork - speaking before Hales penned a deal with IPL franchise Mumbai Indians and Adam Lyth was confirmed as Alastair Cooks opening partner for next weeks game at HQ - explained how Hales could have been the man to bully opposition bowlers after an excellent start to the county campaign with Nottinghamshire.The former England all-rounder also hopes Durham seamer Mark Wood, who took his maiden international wicket on last Friday’s rain-affected ODI with Ireland, gets the nod over Chris Jordan due to his extra zip.Watch the video above to see which XI Cork would have picked to tackle the Black Caps and then read his thoughts below… Alex Hales has flourished for Nottinghamshire this term, albeit at No 3 “I would have gone for Hales at the top of the order as I like the style and acceleration he brings to a team.“He won’t be perfect at Test level but he can bully the bowling and if you go with an Alastair Cook, Lyth and Gary Ballance combination in the top three we are not going to see that.“Lyth deserves his selection in some ways after scoring 1,400 runs last year but Hales could have helped England and brought something different.“You then have the solidity of Ballance and the excitement of Root after that, while I would bring in Mark Wood for Chris Jordan as he has definitely got that little bit of pace. Brendon McCullum has a strong New Zealand squad at his disposal “I think it will be a tough series against New Zealand, though.“I believe they will capitalise on where England are at the moment with lots of things going on behind the scenes in terms of Kevin Pietersen and who will open the batting.“Brendon McCullum is an aggressive captain and with the opening bowlers of Trent Boult and (Tim) Southee this won’t be an easy series for England.“If England play well they will push New Zealand all the way but it’s too close to call.”Watch England’s two-Test series against New Zealand, starting on Thursday 21st May, followed by the Ashes.
