    Oh well. A depressed Tresco wouldn't have been much use at the top of the order anyway. I'm guessing he copped a fair bit from McGrath in the tour match, too.
    Dunno about that, he wasn't there long enough to cop anything.

    This is really sad. I'm no great fan of his or of England in general, but I trust that he is able to recover.

    It really puts all the hype about cricket and its so called importance into perspective. I thought his speaking about his problems at the press conference when they landed was one of the more courageous things I've seen from a sportsman in quite some time.

    All the best to him and his faily.

    That's a fair point, maybe he did cop a spray from someone. If he was that on edge though, you'd have to wonder if he was good for the series anyway.

    Guess it is all conjecture and all can do is hope he gets better soon.

    Bloody hell.

    I hope he recovers soon. Gotta be clinical depression. Unless it's a fatigue disorder, but you figure he'd be more open about that.

    On a more trivial level, this will screw up a few of our Ashes predictions.

    Tbh I think you're putting McGrath on a pedestal he can't climb up to, Tres is the coolest and best at handling sledging in our ranks and I seriously doubt anything McGrath could say will have had any effect on this decision.

    Yeah I've already had to go and review it.

    Cheers Tres!

    Wow, shattering stuff that. Wish Tres all the best, its obviously not "India related" now.

    Better now than in a week's time, but it still leaves us with one very inexperienced batting lineup. It wasn't so long ago that our 1st choice top 5 were Tres, Vaughan, Butcher, Hussain & Thorpe - now all unavailable or gone. In fact none of our top 7 at Brisbane will have played a test in Aus previously. You almost get the feeling that we're building for the 2009 Ashes rather than seriously competing for this one.

    As for Tres, I can't see him coming back now. I know some people are making comparisons with Thorpe when his marriage broke up, but that was one specific situation, not what now seems to be some sort of mental illness. All the best Marcus, you've been a rock, but it looks like it's all over now.

    Having a lot of experienced batters didn't particularly help in the past, and Mick had a purple patch there last time really anyway, I doubt many would have been expecting hundred after hundred again.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Vaughan pads up for Brisbane.

    No, given his form over the last few years I wouldn't expect Vaughan to score more than Cook in this series. And I take your point about our experiences in the 1990's and 2002/03. However, there's no successful Ashes sides that I can think of as inexperienced as this one is rapidly becoming. Maybe someone will do a Chris Broad and hit 3 tons in the series, but we look horribly overdependent on Strauss & KP.

    It might throw them together like we saw at the end of the India tour, but I still reckon we're probably preparing for next time now. If this doesn't finish them, it will make our young batters stronger. All we'll need is to find a keeper and a couple of opening bowlers.

    I still seriously doubt we'll see Vaughan in this series at all and definately not at Brisbane.

    I feel sorry for Tres and hope he can make a full recovery, at his best he's such a destructive opener.
