Why? You pick your bowlers to bowl first and foremost. And at the moment, he's probably England's best bowler. I don't see why a good bowler needs to contribute 20 runs per innings if he's a good enough bowler. Courtney Walsh certainly didn't.
Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."
