    There's more chance of seeing Rob Key at some stage of the series. btw does anyone know which other batters are in the reserve squad?

    Ta. Has to be a good chance we'll see Shah too at some point then.

    What a tool.

    Well, I think Cook might impress at the top of the order, actually.

    Well at least he's had the sense to do it now, before the Tests started...at his best he'd be a loss but he's generally been poor outside England and the subcontinent (2005 in SA apart) probably 3, 4, 5 will be Bell, KP and Collingwood....hopefully they'l pick Shah as a replacement...IMO a classier batsman then Key or Joyce.
    Ian Botham, Freddie Flintoff, Kevin Pietersen, Brian Laudrup, Gazza and Daniela Hantuchova....a fan of you all FOREVER!!!
    Can't wait to see Australia field a crap leg-spinner like Hollland or Hohns again.....
    Congratulations to Daniela Hantuchova on her 3rd career title....
    Bob Woolmer 1948-2007..farewell to the best coach England never had...
    Arise Sir Beefy....

    Can't say I'm surprised and its not the biggest of blows considering Trescothick's form of late, minus the comeback ton (last summer) his not looked impressive at all. Cook is more than an adequate replacement anyhow as opener. Only problem is it means Collingwood is now guaranteed to play.

    Yes, clearly his affliction by what's clearly a very damaging mental and/or physical illness is his own fault.

    Calling him a tool is out of order imo.

    He is a tool imo. He tried to pick and choose which series he wanted to play in and it's backfired completely. He's either fit to play for England or not. He's left one tour before and suffered a recurrence, so I don't know why he should have thought it'd just completely disappear completely over the course of the Champions Trophy. Him and the England management should have known better, therefore they're all tools.

    He's not "picking and choosing". Don't you think a player like him - by that I mean someone who's never shown less than 100% commitment to the cause - would want to play as many games for his country as possible? If he was mentally and physically fit to play he would be. To blame this on him is to do him a great injustice IMO.

    "I've only felt like this since about February, so I'll just skip the Champions Trophy, it'll go away and I'll be as right as rain for the Ashes" sounds either incredibly naïve and stupid or remarkably like picking and choosing to me.

    Bit harsh Steds, old bean.

    Clinical depression, bi-polar or whatever it is he has is pretty unpredictable, not to mention quite unnerving to get late on-ish in life, so not really surprising they've made a bit of a horlicks of things.
