    It's like the reverse me.

    Seriously though, they're not better bowlers than him in test cricket. Bresnan doesn't get picked in the test side because he's a handy number 8 batsman, he gets picked because the England management consider him to be one of the three best seam bowlers in the country. Tremlett has been averaging around the 40 mark for most of this season, Finn has bowled pies all season and has never been a great test match bowler, Rankin is pretty untested and only ever really establishes himself in the Warwickshire line up when others are unavailable. Onions, maybe, but they'd both do very different roles with the ball for England, so it's hard to compare.

    Different discussion for a different day when there is nothing else to talk about

    Point is, England have a habit of picking a bowler who can bat a bit. And it rubs me up the wrong way when we look a bowler short.

    England fans fighting amongst themselves. How typical!

    It rubs me up the wrong way when people think the same bowlers who can bat get picked for their batting despite being the best bowlers.

    Tredwell is such a guy. Been a perfect display of OD bowling so far.

    Not that surprising but I find it a shame that it's been made totally obvious who our two full strength first team squad bowlers are.

    Indeed, then tops it off by saying we should pick Jordan instead...

    "As bad as Australia are"... You mean the team that's ranked #2 in the world?
