    But who do you drop? You can't just rest players from Ashes tests because you want to give someone a run. Jaques and Johnson will get their chance eventually. In fact, Jaques has already had a couple.

    The MCG wicket has been consistently slow, low and difficult to bat on so far this year, in domestic games. It'll be interesting if we get a similar kind of wicket for this test. It probably won't be a great public spectacle in terms of the batting, but it'll make for a nice change to see the bowlers on top.

    Will Flintoff stick with Saj? If it is as slow as its being made out to be, could we see the introduction of another spinner?

    That would have to be Dalrymple. Not a chance, imo.

    Don't think so after Saj has come out in his blog pretty harshly against Flintoff.

    He'll get screwed for writing that and although the honesty was refreshing, it's really not the best career move tbh.

    Wow, not the best career move, I'd have to agree.

    Nah i don't think Saj was being harsh to Flintoff at all in that piece, just the media making it look bigger than it is. After all they are both from the North can't be in any bad blood..

    Considering that morale will be low, Mahmood might just get a further kick in the pants by not being selected. Even though he was probably only expressing his disappointment, I don't think team management will be bothered with cry babies right now.

    What's that really got to do with it though?

    Jones test Career is over. Read will take over for the forseable future then i expect someone like Steven Davies to take over the gloves in a few years.

    We thought (and hoped) that at Headingley against Pakistan this summer, don't get your hopes up too much.

    I dunno, even his best mate Fletcher surely cant excuse picking him after his 2 ducks. It wasnt just the fact he got 0 both innings, anyone can be out first up when they arent set, it was how he got out that will be the belated final nail in the Jones Coffin.
