    Read at 8. We all know Pothas can't keep wicket.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    You said picking Pothas at 6 allows Flintoff to bat 7 and us to play 4 bowlers.

    Therefore, only 3 of 8-11 are bowlers - so I'm assuming the other will be a specialist batsman.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Flintoff will be @ 7 he will be a bowler, plus Hoggard, Panesar, Jones, Harmo to bring up the rear. So actually the same 5 bowlers will be around..

    Four specialist bowlers, not an all-rounder like Flintoff. I don't know if you were joking or seriously thought he wanted a batsman at 8.

    England has something like 50 million people, surely 12 can play cricket? Sorry, 11 - they have one South African in the team already.

    Do tell? Pietersen obviously, quite a significant South African background. The Papua New Guinean? The other South African? I clearly have some research to do.

    Meh! If there is a cricket structure in PNG apart from expat whites it is the first I've heard of it.
    From Wikipaedia : "....Geraint Owen Jones MBE (born 14 July 1976, Kundiawa, Papua New Guinea) is a member of the England cricket team. Until August 2006 he was the first-choice wicketkeeper for England in both Test and One-day cricket, but is now behind Chris Read. He plays county cricket for Kent.
    Jones moved to Australia with his parents, who were originally from Wales, soon after he was born. He grew up in Toowoomba, Queensland and lived in Australia until he was 22.
    ......".
    Another Aussie discard.

    Strauss was born there, but moved to Australia at age 6 and then left for England 18 months later. IIRC his parents, or one of, is English.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...
