    Yeah When I started a new job at this bottleshop a couple weeks ago I openly declared that I'd rather do night shifts because I had cricket to watch during the day. Will be able to watch the first session at home though and then the rest on the radio.

    Didn't know where else to put this. Expecting Hilfy to do really well, he bowled far better than his numbers suggested in India.

    Was told today by someone that Watson's not going to bowl in the first Test. Anyone else heard this? It'd completely change my team make-up if so.

    I completely understand why he shouldn't be part of the squad, but why don't they just leave him there anyway? Is there some formal obligation to have a 13 man squad?

    Is this 'someone' reputable? Because as far as I know Watson said he is fully fit, so I don't see any reason why he wouldn't bowl, even if it's just as a partnership-breaker role.

    Makes you wonder why they bothered including him in the first place
