    I think your method is the only way anyone will see Clarke holding the little urn next year, or the year after.

    Good to see the tourists start at Taunton on the road to dishearten the bowlers then off to Floodville. Can see them turning up well undercooked for Trent Bridge.

    Two games doesn't seem enough preparation, but I guess most of the team will be over there already with the Champions Trophy.

    If they were serious, they'd have the non-ODI playing guys over in England for a good two to three weeks before the tour started.

    His weaknesses have become very high-profile though. In '09 Australia stayed over the wicket to him the entire time and he punished them. Can't see them making that mistake again this time next year.
    We don't have a guy who naturally moves the ball away from the left hander though. It's what you need to be doing to be effective from around the wicket.

    Our left armer, the best candidate, was Johnson who slides it into the left hander.

    I think he was speaking in past tense about 2009

    that said, if he wasn't, Michael Hussey could probably give bowling left handed a shot and be better than MJ at it
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    I was thinking of him with future series in mind, but not sure that he'll get picked unless there are some injuries.

    Made a decent impression up here for France, by all accounts.

    Won't help him if he stinks out his domestic season tho, obvz.

    Meanwhile Mike Selvey in The Guardian thinks Strauss is still the best man for the job, but how things go in India will determine whether he'll be in charge come the Ashes double.

    - 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

    I hate it when England and Australia obsess over the Ashes, but seriously I don't think England could plan it all any worse than sacking their captain (or having him resign) right before back to bash Ashes series. If they're still 50/50 about whether he'll be leading the team for the Ashes in England they should give him the arse right now.

    Starc is absolutely smashing the door down. I expect him to overtake a couple of the incumbents within the next 6-12 months. Discussion for a different thread though.
