    I still think the greatest thingabout Broad is how many people rush into wanting him dropped, almost utterly forgetting he was winning matches about 3 games ago. I'm not sure there's ever been a player who people have lower thresholds of averageness before they scream for him to be dropped. He actually bowled well in this series before today without getting the wickets and scored vital runs.

    Thankfully as Cabinet said, most on here realised that his big performance was coming up, but elsewhere the whinging was all over the place.

    This is a gloating thread, right? It's a safe zone?

    This post a highlight for me, it's got just the right tone of mocking condescension, which I normally use so horribly.

    Oh and if anyone thinks I'm being unfair gloating after the event, good ol' Cevno was there before me

    just this side of cool
    Both talented players who made worthy contributions in the recently completed Ashes series, particularly Ian Bell.

    Do I have any love for Broad? No.

    Love them equally - i.e. not at all.

    I could watch Bell bat all day. No love from Broad. I don't even really care that he's a bit of a dick; I just very rarely actually enjoy watching him play cricket.

    Struggling to grasp the point of this thread tbh, it's kind of apples vs oranges. Or brocoli vs spinach more like. And having to admit to liking at least one or both of them. Hence the low number of votes.

    OP could have asked, who do you hate more, Broad or KP, now that would be somewhat more meaningful imho
