    England's lopsided balance messes with the par score a fair bit, so no idea really. I don't think there's been much movement so far but that's likely because England aren't playing the attack to get it.
    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.

Surely there's someone out there?

    Good wicket for Ravi there btw. I think this is the stage where batsmen tend to fancy their chances against him. A a 6th bowler, he's an asset. Less so as the 5th one.
    Jordan's not a total mug with the willow. Has an FC average in excess of 20.

    Still think there's an element of "spiting the Windies" about his selection.

    Agree about Ravinder tho; bowling pretty well here to be fair to him, but kinda a victim of his own success; gone well as a part-timer, so gets trusted with a full compliment, which isn't really his go.

    250 would be a winning score, I'd think; I'd say 225-240 more like par.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Botham talking plop non-shocker.

    How is it a "shocker" if Hawkeye has it clipping the stumps. I'd accept "marginal", but no way a howler.

    The Aussies have fought their way right back into this. George Bailey in good touch again.

    Yup. I wouldn't be surprised to see him in their top 6 at Brisbane.

    You know Tredwell's in trouble when Root is seen as a safer option by his captain.

    Bailey in the top-6 = yay, another guy who excels at scoring 40-80 in long-form cricket.
