    And crucially, at his home ground too.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Yeah, just read on SSN that the selectors have said they are considering him. I reckon he'll get the nod.

    FFS how are people not getting this.

    It doesn't matter whether he averages 500 in FC cricket.

    He will still be useless at Test level

    Hmm, just heard what Miller said, and I'm thinking he won't get picked actually.

    Said something similar about Bell at the start of the summer tho and we know how that ended.

    Haha, did he?

    I reckon they'll bring Trott in for Bopara, but if Flintoff doesn't play (which he bloody will) then there should be another batting spot up for grabs.

    My head says the same thing tbh, but I really do hope for a Ramprakash recall.

    Yeah this is by far the most likely result, think they will give Bell one more test. There is no doubt that England want to be conistant and stick by there players but I think they have no option but to drop Ravi now.

    Do not really understand the massive calls for Rob Key, everyone is reminding us of Ramps terrible test performance but in his 10 tests ( I know that is a lot less than Ramps got) he did very little to prove he has what it takes at the highest level. Given the options I would not consider it a terrible selection by any means but no better than other options which have been sugested.

    If Anderson's a bit of a *****, I'd love to see what Langer has to say about Ramprakash.

    Given that Ramps averaged 53.10 in Tests in which they played against each other, JL probably rates him pretty highly.

    I'd be surprised if many people would put Ramps in the "*****" category. His problem as it seemed to me was if anything an excess of intensity.

    The idea of selecting someone like Trott or Joyce at this point in the series is by far the most ludicrous idea I have heard. You don't have someone make their debut in a series deciding test match of an Ashes series if only because they have very little probability of doing any better than Bell or Bopara.

    And yes, I would have gone for the bloke whos been averaging over 100 this year long before Bell got picked for Edgbaston.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

The other likely-looking players scoring in Div 1 are Carberry, Read and Hildreth.
    Yes, we know how poor Ramprakash was in Div 1 the past 2 years having averaged 101 and 61. And lets just remember that he went through a bad run of form during one of them. Trott can do whatever he wants, the point is that it would be sheer madness to pick a debutant in the 5th test of an Ashes series with everything on the line.

    Just the amount of pressure that would be on someone like Trott would be immense and could be career threatening even. Ramprakash, if he were picked, would have nothing to lose really and his prior international experience would no doubt help him in this sort of situation anyhow.
