    Udal looking forwards

    All day, on Sky Sports News, which I have on in the living room and can't be bothered to get up and turn off, Shaun Udal is interviwed stating his next aim is to go to the Ashes next winter. He didn't really mention his chances of playing for England this summer, basically said his plan is to perform as well as he can for Hampshire and get himself on a plane to Australia in November. Think he betetr buy a ticket just in case

    I was about to start a Udal thread asking the question: How will Udal do in Australia?

    Less turn, bouncier pitches etc. England will have to do it with the pace attack if you ask Francis.

    Clearly there's no way Udal should play a Test in Australia except (and even that's only maybe) at The SCG.
    Nonetheless, if anyone would prefer Panesar on the plane I'd like to know why, and if anyone would prefer Blackwell, well... I'm sure their psychiatrist would like to know why.

    he had a great day in Mumbai but once Gilo returns that should be his last test. Gilo & Panesar should definately be the 2 spinners England take to Australia this winter..

    I'd prefer Monty to Udal because if nothing else he's economical.

    Udal is better than Panesar how, exactly?
    IF Panesar ever is Test-class, it certainly ain't gonna be soon.

    Not invariably.
    Panesar tends to mix economical spells with expensive ones.

    well is obviosuly very unlikely that he will ever play a test again. if Panesar does develop this season then he should go as reserve for Giles, if doesnt then maybe Udal should be on the tour. Even if he doesnt play a test again he can finnsih his career by winning the county championship with Hampshire.

    I never said Udal was better than Panesar. While yes it will be a while before Panesar become a really test class bowler but he has the ability to do so..

    really?, i watched him bowl in India & i hardly remeber any expensive spells at all, for the most he was economical but at times seems unpenatrative.

    Panesar's economy rate in the first match against India was 2.26, second match was 3.77 and third was 2.27. Of course, he never made it back into the attack in the final innings of the tour after a very poor over to Tendulkar, if he had continued bowling his ER would have been higher

    Panesar sounds a lot like Utseya and we all know how much Motson likes him...

    Anyone with half a brain can tell that Panesar and Utseya have virtually nothing in common.
