    England - rated out of 10 so far

    Strauss - 3 - Would have been lower but he's had three bad decisions.
    Cook - 6 - Just getting going and will probably be higher after the 5th Test
    Bell - 7- Almost proving his class but playing too many half innings and getting out.
    Collingwood - 8 - Two good Tests but doubtful whether he'll reproduce that form.
    Pietersen - 9 - Top man.
    Flintoff - 6 - Looked our best bowler but poor batting and iffy selection and captaincy.
    Jones - 5 - Keeping has been bordering on adequate but hasn't scored the runs to justify his selection.
    Giles - 1 - Hardly played any cricket in the past year and shouldn't have been on this tour.
    Hoggard - 7 - Bowled well at times.
    Harmeson - 5 - Started off crap and has improved to erratic.
    Anderson - 4 - Another one who's hardly played in the past year, but bowled quite well at times.
    Panesar - 8 - Stating the blindingly obvious to say he should have played from the start.
    Mahmood - 1 - Was he playing..............someone should have pointed this out to the captain.

    Anderson a 4 and Giles a 1? Thought they were more or less equal in the first two tests.

    Yeah can't see how Anderson got past 1, and Harmison is a 3.5 at most for me.

    Very generous.

    Has he really been *that* bad then?

    I thought Jones has been sound enough with the gloves this tour, he's just been utterly dire with the bat.

    Strauss - 4, played well when he didn't get a crap desicion
    Cook - 6, has played really well for a 21 year old, and scored a good hundred
    Bell - 5, not had the best of tours, but had a good innings at the WACA
    Collingwood - 8, one of our best batsmen, just didn't get in at the WACA
    Pietersen - 9, best batter by a distance, played as well as I have ever seen him
    Flintoff - 5, feel for the man, but not had the best performances
    Jones - 4, batted like crap, kept fantastically
    Giles - 2, fairly awful tour, bowled crap and batted very average
    Mahmood - 3, did he play?
    Hoggard - 8, our best bowler, tried the hardest out of any of them
    Harmison - 4, found his feet and bowled great at the WACA after a shocking start
    Panesar - 8, made the most of his limited opurtunities, and batted great
