    Twice as good is a stretch, tbh. Better, yes, but not to that extent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Such BS. Weird thing is... we can still win without him whereas Aus would struggle hugely without Ponting (captaincy notwithstanding)
    That is because Ricky is excellent .Most series Kp blasts one century to keep average of fifty up then he gone for a series No big loss.I am more afraid Collingwood then Kp.

    Back to reality, ****. Bell. ****.
    Like Lee and Clark being affected by injury as well. That are almost always some injury issues for both teams.

    Huge, especially if the replacement is Bell. Think England should go alright if they adopt an ABB principle though.

    I believe it's good for England. Atleast, we can learn batting without him. Hope, Strauss takes the responsibility and Bell bats as well as he has done at No.6.

    First injury that has forced him to miss a test, he has played through injuries before (and missed ODIs because of injury too).

    I don't think it'd impact as heavily as you'd expect on either team tbh. England have coped just fine with KP hitting Bellesque scores, I'm sure they'll be fine with the real thing. Likewise, Ponting's replacement would presumably be someone like Brad Hodge, who would score maybe 10 or 12 runs less per match on average.

    Except Australia didn't bother bringing spare batsman on the tour, so if that's what you meant then you're absolutely right.

    Don't see why everyone's so stressed about the Aussies not having a back-up opener on tour. Surely it's better to have Rogers playing for Derbyshire than sat twiddling his thumbs in the dressing room? Anyway, Watson's the back-up batsman technically, he covers the middle order slots, and MacDonald isn't exactly the worst batsman in the world either.

    Yeah, think its made out to be too much of an issue. Rogers is playing cricket for Derbyshire and Dussey is churning out runs for Notts. Its not like they would be in crisis if Hughes continues to fail.

    In all of 1 game, yes.
