    Anyone know his story? Be a bit of a turn-up for the books if young guns at that level are leaving this country aiming to play for England wouldn't it?

    I mean, on the face of it, it may be that because his parents are English therefore he just feels like he should play for England but it makes me wonder if there's more to the decision.
    All this talk about boat people...these are the types of people we should be banning from our shores.

    Time to stop being funky I reckon, and look to this for England?


    - Cowan
    - Warner
    - Khawaja
    - Doolan (or someone else youngish)
    - Clarke
    - Henriques
    - Wade (or someone else)
    - Pattinson
    - Siddle
    - Lyon/ O'Keefe
    - Starc/Bird/etc


    I just don't rate Hughes at all. Sure, once he's set he can be great, but the **** is that inconsitent it's not funny. Really need someone to anchor things at #3 at the moment.

    Please. Can we just have 6 batsmen, a keeper who can catch stuff and a couple bowlers to roll the arm over. So annoyed with these all rounders.

    I agree. But Henriques has done the job so far.

    It is nice to have a fifth bowling option, and Henriques seems ok with the bat, so....

    If Haddin was behind the stumps I'd feel marginally more comfortable with picking Henriques at 6

    Swann was out for 6 weeks in 2009 after the operation. I think he will be ready for the 1st Test v New Zealand in May.

    Should have thought about this before making a South African the coach of the national team.

    Reminds me of prior to the last Ashes when Anderson got a knock and you picked that out as bad news for Australia. That worked out well for you IIRC.

    Not sure how this is anything but good news for us especially given the number of left handers we have in the batting line-up.

  13. #823
    It's not so much the left handers but how long they'll likely be batting. If there are a few of them but they only last 10 balls each, it doesn't really matter too much. Clarke and Twatto (going on his last visit here) will likely hang around a lot longer and be the ones that need to be dislodged.

    Despite Panesar's average Australia didn't play him that well in what were pretty flat conditions.

    Wonder how many surplus Murray Mints will be donated to charity after the Oval Test.
