True, but Richards was out for 13, and has done nothing so far to say that he deserves to stay on in the role....
In contrast, I think Phillips, Roach and maybe Best have all made a case for themselves.
I thought this thread was about the series against Bangladesh. Isn't there another thread that deals with the England series, which I, among others, felt should never have taken place?
And I know I'm not along in voicing my opposition to that ridiculous, truncated tour BEFORE it took place.....
