    Which is, indeed, a shame.

    Would've thought they could have patched him up ....... wouldn't matter if we had a class replacement available - I wonder if an announcement from the Taunton area (currently 115* at Worcester) might be on the cards?

    Bad news for England, has yet to shine this series but no doubt England will miss him.

    Cerrtainly a blow. Peopleskills is one of those players who never seems far away from a big score, and he scores so fast as well, even if Johnson isn't bowling.

    He's actually had plenty - it's just been very rare for them to a) be bad enough and b) be long-lasting enough to keep him out of much\any international cricket.

    Anyway, I'm not surprised - some injuries cannot be overcome by any amount of spirit\painkillers, and this always looked like one. Obviously it's disappointing to have the best batsman on either side play for only 2\5ths of the series, but these things do happen from time to time. Let's see what happens from here on in.

    It is disappointing not a huge shock after the way he has carried himself in the first two Tests. He has not batted well, how much of this is due to the injury we can't be sure, but something was clearly wrong at Cardiff and Lords. So in that respect, it's not a bad thing to replace someone so obviously struggling, on the other hand if KP was fully fit, his absence would be huge.

    I am an Ian Bell fan, so I fail to have as many concerns as are being portrayed on here.

    No doubt that England are gonna miss KP, but I think given the seriousness of his injury he was never gonna last the whole series, Bell is no doubt a far inferior batsman than KP, but I won't just write him off as a joke batsman.

    Yes, he had an awful time before being dropped from the English side last time around, but he is still a pretty decent batsman with a pretty solid technique, he would be really keen to revive his test career, and that determination might bring the best out of him, and he might contribute decently.

    Though the other way to look at it is, he might get too nervous and uptight (like he has been before) and might just end up proving to be a walking wicket for us, or atleast that's what I'm hoping for.

    Yeah, easily - Ponting's been nothing more than a good Test batsman the last 2-and-a-half years. Makes sense, after all - most batsmen pass their peak at 33 or so. He's still good, obviously, but Pietersen is clearly better at the current time.

    Nah, even on current form, if asked, I'd take Ponting on a winner takes all match. He's simply a class above.
