"Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."

So much can happen in between but as things stand I see a draw here, and as I put in another thread the final series result as 2-1 but I can't decide who to yet.
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
I think Australia pick:
8. Pattinson (or Starc if Pattinson isn't back yet)

Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.
The number 6 batsman should be picked entirely on form IMO, with preference going to those with a decent FC or A tour record, the A game will be pivotal you'd think. Therefore I'm not calling the number 6 batsman yet. If they shift the order and throw Hughes/Khawaja/a debutant into no3 again I'll kill someone, new batsman establish themselves at 5/6, that's the new rule, unless they are specialist openers. Faulkner doesn't keep his place either, lets make that clear
Proudly supporting the world's no 1 spin bowler Rangana Herath and the mighty Sri Lankans!
I even made a domestic thread
On streaks - Pakistan were unbeaten at Karachi for 34 Tests over 45 years until England beat them in the dark in 2000.

Then again, I think S Marsh, Uzi and Hughes should be banished from the side for a little while until their **** is sorted, an experienced guy like Bailey/Voges or a form debutant (Doolan/Maddinson/Burns) should probably play number 6 in the meantime
Was pretty annoyed last night when my mate told me we've got a ****ing seven match ODI series in India after the five in England. Means there'll only be 19 days turn around from Bangalore to the Gabba, probably with precious little first class practice in between for the Test players. Seriously, who schedules these ****ing things? I don't even want to watch five ODIs, let alone bloody seven.
