    Only other option would to be 3. Bell 4. Pietersen 5. Clarke, IMO.

    Wasn't Watson doing a similar thing in the live tests?

    Personally would go with Bell/KP/Clarke/Smith as my batting lineup.

    EDIT: Not quite, but Trott only started to even get starts in the dead rubbers.

    There was only 1 dead rubber. You guys could have still drawn the series if you won the 4th test, despite not regaining the ashes.

    Just looked up the stats and Trott's were far worse than I seemed to think they were. I think I might have caught his two decent innings and missed the really bad ones.

    Bell - Pietersen - Clarke - Smith it is.

    Things you never thought you'd read; Watson not making the team because he had one good innings compared to the other guy who had loads of good starts.

    When KP returns he will be the banana..

    Trott's bowling was more incisive too
