    Incidentally, part of me thinks his performances might've improved Darren's chances of a recall from "when hell freezes" to merely "extremely unlikely". As Dernbach seems to be seventh in the pecking order he can't be that far away and the selectors might get a case of "Pattinson envy".
    Anderson, Broad, Bresnan, Tremlett, Finn, Onions, Woakes, Shahzad. Dernbach might be 9 in the order or 10 after Meaker.

    Harris, Siddle, Hilfenhaus, Johnson, Pattinson, Cummins, Starc, Bollinger, Copeland

    As much as everyone thinks that Johnson has played his last Test with a new crop of young fast bowlers Australia have found I think he will be back for the Ashes.

    Harris, Pattinson, Cummins will be injured. Even Siddle might be worn out by then.

    Cook, Trott and Bell are all gonna miss the Ashes due to Lyme disease anyway
    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

    Yeah well Forrest certainly isn't there because the selectors think he's a gun one day player, that's for sure.

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

    Not really the right thread to put it in, but ah well...

    Totally agree with Chappell there on the Watson stuff.

    Would be dancing jigs of delight if Haddin's still in the test XI come 2013, tbh. Wade's keeping must be rustic in the extreme if Haddin's is considered a virtue next to it.

    Also think Chappelli isn't seeing the wood for the trees with Watson. Yes, he & Warner could be a destructive opening pair, but with Marsh almost literally unable to score a run, to me #3 looks the obvious fit for him.

    "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

    He said he would think about putting him at 3 though, but only if there is a better opener than him available. Cowan's position is hardly in concrete, and there are definately doubts as to whether he'll be good enough in the long term. There is some uncertainty over Warner as well tbh. Honestly don't think it would make much difference if he is an opener or first drop anyhow, but the important point for me is that he has a role primarily as a batsmen.

    Yeah; where Watson bats will be determined less by the potential effectiveness of a partnership with Warner or his bowling workload and more by who the selectors think the sixth best batsman is (assuming Watson himself is one of the best five). Presently they seem to think it's Cowan which means Watson doesn't open.

    Haddin won't be there in 2013. If the WI tour was on post-next round of CA contracts he wouldn't make it there either. But because it starts like 5 days after the tri series finishes he'll probably well.
