    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

    5 tests (9 innings)
    3 50's
    0 100's
    9 wickets

    Will probably average less than Ed Cowan.

    He'll still slate Cowan and ignore Watson, as he does when presented with evidence that Cowan's average of 32 is much superior to Watson's average in the same timeframe.

    If Watson can average a handy 25-30 with the ball and 50 with the bat (either opening or having massive partnerships with Clarke) it will go a long way towards us winning The Ashes.

    Unfortunately I cannot see this happening.

    Given recent form averaging 50 seems well beyond him. Even if he scores a few 50s he's unlikely to convert them anyway.

    **** him. He can count his dirty gazillions from the IPL in between Lee Furlong shaggings for all I care, as long as it's at the team hotel from 10am till 6pm.

    Would really, truly, honestly rather see Hughes open over Watson, although he's still well behind Cowan and Rogers in my estimation.

    I'd love to see Watson dropped at some point during the Ashes and never see him return, I'm sick of 2 years of mediocrity.

    Please make it the 5th test in Australia so we get to laugh at him in 9 more tests beforehand.

    I don't think he should play, based on recent form, unless he's bowling. He's a more than decent fifth bowling option. His batting has been terribad for a long time now though.

    I would, but I stopped laughing at Watto long ago, looking at him makes me sick nowadays.

    Shane Watson has only ever fulfilled his role in the Australian cricket team when he has opened the batting. I think as it stands right now, he shouldn't even be in the touring squad. There's no way he deserves a spot based on his batting form, and he hasn't bowled for ages. He's dead wood.
