Shades of this game for mine
Am I alone in thinking Broad's not actually such a crucial loss for England with a couple of other tall bowlers on the sidelines?
He's not such a crucial loss now that Anderson & Swann are bowling well. But Broad will be missed because he can suddenly have a massive impact (The Oval, Durban, etc) and change the game. This, plus his batting, can't really be matched by any of the reserves.
Aside: Love that scorecard. Hadlee basically won games on his own.
