    Whether or not Watson bowls; he's fit to bowl. So my original retraction of all my previous comments stands.

    Woakes is pretty rubbish at OD cricket IIRC.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    His stats are currently but I think he will make a decent one for England. What I meant - apologies.

    Doesn't move the ball much but is smart and has good temperament

    Reckon this tour is too early for him but he may well turn out to be a very good test cricketer

    Bangladesh is third though so it doesn't really say much. Reckon it'll go down by a bit if you take out Abul Hasan's innings
    Scoring rate has an awful lot more variables that the batting tactics, so I'd say one year isn't really enough to get a fair picture of the sides. Every side's faced different attacks in different conditions.

    Not disputing England are relatively defensive, ftr

    The outstandingly low SRs of both these players recently aren't representative of the rest of the team I think. Whereas England have had most of their batsmen willing to dig in for long periods this series and others
    There are two colours in my head

    Yeah he's in an unfortunate spot; his player type is much more useful in one day cricket but his actual skills with both bat and bowl are more suited to Tests. What he needs is for the ICC to introduce a "maximum 18 overs per bowler per day" rule in Test cricket.

    Very much my thoughts on Woakes, I don't see either being fixtures in there respective sides but if they can carve out that option as the 3rd seamer who can bat 7 they should both be around for a while.

    Indeed, there's pretty much nothing useful you can draw from the stat.

    If I was to draw up a list of my least favourite batsmen, Trott would be right up there

    Not only is he dull as dishwater but it's an ugly technique as well and to top it all off, he makes the opposition wait an eternity between deliveries whilst he ****s around
