    Come on how can you say Martyn is not good anymore. Yea we know he didn't make runs in the ashes but one has to remember unlike Hayden & Gilchrist he wasn't worked out by the England bowlers, his dismissals was more of a mixture of rough decisions & poor shots than England getting on top of him.

    He then was stupidly dropped from the test side & then kept in the OD side & clearly between the VB series & ODI series in SA he wasn't sure what was his position in the team & thus was playing naturally. When he was recalled the SA series he started to bat more fluently & showed that he still can make runs at test level even if it may not be as good as his prolific year in 2004.

    lol, just because Cosgrove score one big double century doesn't make him suddenly better than Martyn.

    Even I wouldn't rate that highly a double hundred against my beloved Derbyshire.

    We might be better than we were, but it's still relative
