    Are you combining the back to back series when saying 20-25?

    Over 0.2: Putland to Nevill, OUT, no run, full ball swings in late to crash into his pads. Nevill is almost falling over trying to get bat on it but can't. Huge shout for LBW and Umpire Martell eventually raises the finger! P.Nevill - lbw b:Putland 0 (1 ball, 1 minute).

    Other than his chin he had floating bone fragments removed from his elbow. Says it feels better than ever now. Time will tell though.

    I thought that was the consensus on here.

    Either that or I just read far too many Burgey posts.

    Avatar bet that Bell will be among the top three run scorers in the series?

    As for Burgey's point on Bell - bloke has played some bloody crucial innings for England in recent times but rather than be the mentally piss-weak player he used to be, he's developed into the high-school flirt. Looks good, leads you on enough but never takes you home.

    I agree with this 100%. No doubt he hasn't made the most of his immense talent, bar his brilliant 18 months or so between 2010-11.

    But to say he his **** is just a nonsense.

    I also think elegance can be a misconception of talent. Sure, him driving a ball through cover is greater eye candy than Cook doing the same. But does that really make him more talented?

    Of course, maybe I'm just judging why people think he's talented the wrong way. If so, I'd love to hear what it is exactly that makes him more talented than most.

    I don't like the term anyway, actually. Flem was right.
