    To be fair, for those saying Panesar would have dropped it as well, I agree he would have, but he wouldn't have been fielding in that position if he'd been on the field. He usually fields mid on/mid off.

    The hysteria over Panesar being a very, very poor fielder, is pretty much toothless as far as I'm concerned. He has dropped 3 catches (methinks anyway), and made a few t oo many fielding errors, but to leave him out simply because of that is ludicrous.

    He shouldn't do it because people want him to, he should do it because it gives them a better chance to win.

    Dunc likes his multi-dimesnional players, so he's a possible if Fletcher survives.

    Let the bowlers bowl and the batsmen bat I say, apart from Fred obviously, Duncan obviously doesn't trust the top order to make runs.

    Why oh Why is Ashley Giles still doing in the England team, he is a Decent batsman a Poor Spinner and an Average Fielder why Monty is no good at these but Excels at Bowling

    Any other test nation would love Monty Panesar

    We will draw this test becasue we have fought a good battle and the Aussies now know it will not be plain sailing but the Aussies will still win back the Ashes

    He's not even a decent batsman, per say.

    He's only decent when judged against a tail end batsman really.

    Giles has looked poor in bowling, and it was a NEGATIVE selection to pick him over Panesar

    Actually I wouldn't mind Dalrymple - better bat than Giles, not too much worse at bowling either.

    Would prefer Supermont, though.

    Dalrymple would just be another Gareth Batty at test level.

    Even Giles is better.
