    Bresnan has been the least threatening, hasn't been as consistent as Shaz IMO, and given that Shazad isn't in the squad it'd likely be Tremlett.

    Mostly, though, it'll depend on the bowler injured. Bresnan Shahzad stand a better chance of coming in if it's Anderson that's out.

    Not the best day for Australia. Watson and Katich out already for NSW, and our backup batsman not coping with a juicy Bellerive surface.

    Tough being at work and not watching the game, a good chance for Smith to show some form with the bat (which has deserted him of late)

    Definitely a problem you'd rather have than the one the Aussie selectors are having i.e. "So... who's fit?"

    Our performance squad is in Oz too, which he's a part of.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Touring with the performance squad. England have a whole secondary squad touring.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    You know the world's gone crazy when England have a much more settled eleven than Australia going into an Ashes series and one of the few answers to the above question is "Mark Cameron".

    75/5 at lunch. Really can't fault it, can you?

    Right, bed for me I reckon.

    heh, gone are the days of 'Aus's second XI would beat most Test sides.' Not that I thought it was terribly true anyway but this side is struggling to compete against England's second string.

    Quite. It looks like he'll probably get a bowl today so I've probably put the mocker on him.

    Rob Key doesn't quite have the face for Television, but I do enjoy his punditry a lot. Generally speaks a lot of sense, has a great cricket brain and I could defintely see him move into a regular commentary position when his career comes to an end. I'd rather listen to him ahead of Botham or Knight anyway.

    Really like Paine's batting, not a world beater but his technique is solid. Would bat all day for 10 if needed, not sure some of the other batsmen could leave their egos at the gate. Would be very brave to play Paine as a batsman, but his front foot play is miles better than White's for example.
