    Jonathan Trott

    Jonathan Trott has been called up to the England squad for the 4th test.

    Lets hope he can score loads of runs.

    Aye, wish him all the best if selected. He's certainly had a long apprenticeship.

    He has a foreign accent so he should fit well into the England team.

    They say his chances are dependant on Flintoff... but surely Harmison will play in Freds place.

    Trott in for Bopara?

    Think Flower has confirmed Bopara is playing.

    If Harmison plays it weakens the batting so Trott will play instead of a bowler. They might even leave out Swan depending on conditions.

    Can't see it as it would leave us with literally no spinning options if the pitch does turn, unless one counts Colly's cutters and I don't.

    Broad + Flintoff out > Trott + Harmison in.

    In all seriousness, he was our best bowler in Cardiff, with those cutters.

    Haha yeah well, he bowled quite nicely TBF, seemed to get a bit of grip and turn. Reckon he should work on them, could be hand, especially in ODIs.

    Strauss the idiot needs to actually bowl him in the first place.

    He should have bowled in the last Test, what with 3/5ths of the bowling attack looking completely toothless and the other two going in and out.

    With Strauss it feels like someone else draws up a plan at the start of the day as to when the bowlers bowl, with the overs nicely shared out and he rigidly sticks to it.

    Hmm, worth having an individual thread I'd think. The Test Match threads have an all-consuming quality that tends to submerge all discussion re a particular subject, particularly when the match gets underway.

    And what if he plays in the fifth Test too?
