    He's been good in the last few seasons, List A wise, though. I remember bringing him up as a possibility to get picked in ODIs before he showed up in T20.

    Code:
    Season	Runs	Avg	S.R
    
    2007	654	38.47	97.03
    2008	498	38.30	89.09
    2009	676	42.25	90.98
    How many English batsmen actually have three good List A seasons in a row like that? Particularly at that strike rate. I think he's worth a go. Not ahead of Trott but if they can fit them both in they should go for it IMO.

    Not sure if you know this but S Africa didnt 'choke' in the semis last year, they played out of their skin and you couldnt fault their approach, Pakistan were just in unbeatable form.

    Yeah, the new 'look' of the Australian team has me a little non-plussed. Whatever happened to the 'ugly Aussie'?

    I can imagine English people picking up a newspaper and seeing the headline "England into cricket world cup final" and being excited. And then of course they find out a little bit more information that this "world cup" is held every couple of months and is soon forgotten pretty much by everyone. Now that India is out the BCCI has already forgotten this "world cup" and is probably dreaming up new "world cup" style tournaments they cram in the next few weeks.

    Shame. Could have been a real shot in the arm for English cricket.

    Of course. He should be well ahead of Lumb for a ODI spot. Started like a train this year as well

    Most definitely, should be in ahead of Kieswetter as well IMO but that's a different issue.

    Keep Kes in the England side, Jos Buttlers better for Zummerset.

    Pathetic. What has BCCI got to do with World T20s every year ffs?

    The three pace amigos. I like that. You'd feel pretty cut as a Harris or Bollinger being picked in the same side as those guys, though. Did ZZ Top have a rhythm guitarist?
