Can always bring in Hildreth or Lyth from the academy team to rest the bats if they want to. Pretty certain that the bowling will be the same as what played against Aus A.
Of the batsmen, Cook, KP and Trott don't need the practice, give Bell, Colly and the skipper a game.
So bring in Morgan and Davies and a bloke from the development squad (or ask Andy Flower to have a go for a laugh).
Entire bowling attack to rest again and same attack as played Australia A.
marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!
Anyone want to join the Society?
Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
The Australian state sides have bowled better to England then the test side have. Expect the media to pounce on the fact if Victoria bowl well against England.
Didn't Alec Stewart play one of our tour games in 06/07 or am I imagining it?

"I don't believe a word of Pietersen's book, but then I don't believe a word anyone else has said either."
- Simon Barnes renders further comment on KP's autobiography superfluous in a sentence
Colly and Bell have spent so much time in the pavilion it's ridiculous. Have them up the order. Strauss can still captain. One more game for KP, confidence players like him thrive on middle time.
Next week is the only respite the bowlers are getting before the end of the series, get them out. Another audition match for Tremlett & Bres.
Morgan and Davies to play, why else are they on the tour?
"Your averages, captain, coaches and players can probably survive incompetence over a relatively short series, so if youíre going to be rubbish, make sure itís against Pakistan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand or someone."
Any idea what the Vics side will be like? Would Siddle play for example? What about Hodge, Dussey, McDonald, Hastings?
I'm quite looking forward to the end of these meaningless warm-ups where our batsmen fill their boots against 3rd-string opposition. Bring on the proper cricket
