    Series XI

    Seems unlikely much will happen to change our minds on this tomorrow so here goes

    Root
    Rogers
    Watson ()
    Clarke
    Bell
    Pietersen
    Haddin
    Broad
    Swann
    Harris
    Anderson

    Siddle unlucky. Been more consistent than our quicks but hasn't had that defining spell.

    Smith probably deserves to be in over KP but I don't like his face. Watson arguably deserves exclusion for coming to the party too late. Root questionable as well, in fact I would argue Bell is the only nailed on batting selection

    Pretty much agree with the line up. Cook v Root and Smith v Pietersen/Clarke the only things I might consider changing.

    When KP returns he will be the banana..

    There's one day to go.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    I might actually side with Cook over Root. Would need to think it through.

    Which is why I've opened by saying that it seems unlikely anything will change tomorrow

    I hope it does as it would surely mean the series hasn't ended in such a damp squib

    Yep but still the CPS do nothing about it, apparently being cretinously tedious isn't a crime.

    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.
