England could actually draw a positive out of it though - the management were reluctant to play Lewis for whatever stupid reasons, and they might - just might - be more inclined to play Broad. Lewis is better than Broad, yes, but they're both better than Mahmood, so Broad being there could actually help matters.
Yea. I wouldn't be at all surprised if Broad plays at some point without there being any further injuries. The tall bowlers I can think of seem to be doing well (McGrath, Oram, Rankin) - obviously you'd expect there to be some success with those three anyway.
