To be fair to Jade, he may not be brilliant, but he's not that terrible in T20. Rather he plays and get smacks than a test prospect plays and damages his future.

Dernbach actually makes the T20 side on merit, as scary as that is.
I really do actually dislike having an irrational hatred of an England player, but
It just smacks of selectors being to stubborn to admit they've totally wasted time and money, and supporters going "meh it's t-20 let him play", if a Test prospect plays and ****s it up, and that ruins him, he probably wasn't up too much anyway.
Give other guys a go, who knows they maybe worse, but they may give us something better.
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,

You incorrectly used the plural of variation.
Seriously though, I actually think he's serviceable in T20, when people are trying to smash him nearly every ball, because he does actually have some tools that make it hard to do so. Bowls decent pace, can get some reverse and has a decent slower ball. He gets found out in ODI's because he lacks accuracy and is erratic, which, in a format which is still very much play the ball on merit most of the time, is terrible for a bowler. When people are trying to hit everything he bowls for six, the fact that he occasionally gets the line of his deliveries wrong isn't that bad if he can get it somewhat under the bat at good pace.
