    *Official* 5th ODI at The Rose Bowl

    5 Hrs out from the off and no thread?? Is this a reflection of how interested we all are in this series even though this is a decider??

    Looks like some heavy rain around mid to late afternoon......DL to play his part.

    I actually quite like ODIs and I've in fact gained a greater appreciation for them as the rest of the world has grown bored of them; obviously no patch on Tests but an interesting enough change of scenery. I really struggle to take the result of any game particularly seriously when the selectors refuse to though.

    I'm gonna be so pissed if Hughes opens and Watson stays at 3
    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

    they still play one day cricket?
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    I guess Clarke is out then?

    Things that might be worth watching:

    Carberry fighting to go on tour.
    Trott's bad trot
    The english love of Buttler
    Bothra doing something
    Rankin getting wickets

    Loving to hate Watson
    Hughes under pressure (assuming he's playing
    Bailey bailing Oz out
    the Wade curse
    Which Mitch will be ditched?

    Marsh is out. Clarke is in doubt.

    The CT proved to me that one day cricket is still a viable and excellent format, but as you say, it's completely devalued by the attitudes of selectors and even players at times
    There are two colours in my head

    Not sure what the selectors are supposed to do though, there is simply too much cricket in the calendar year to expect those that play in all formats to play every game. They have to prioritise.

    I still rate ODI's highly and enjoy the format, but when alls said and done it is far more important to me to have the likes of Jimmy, Swann, Bell and Co fit and firing for the the GABBA.

    I don't mind seeing the up and comers having a crack in a series like this but I do get that it detracts from the contest somewhat.

    So not sure you can blame the selectors, Ashley Giles for instance will be judged on his results.......I'm quite sure he'd love to have a full strength squad at his disposal.

    Solution: play less cricket, make a cricket match worth watching, even if there are less of them, surely quality over quantity.

    Cabinet to comment...

    Gets my vote.

    I was dead against these back to back Ashes but once they decided on it, did we really need this ODI series in between them?? I reckon it could have been scrapped and everyone would have been happy with just one ODI series after the tests in Australia. I love my cricket and I live for the contests between Eng and Aus........reckon that by the end of the Aus summer even I'll be sick to death of watching the same faces going at it, how are the more casual watchers going to handle it??

    I think 3 ODIs would be enough, but before tests. There doesn't seem to be any point after, eveyone is too exhausted—players and viewers.


    BTW if anyone cares I have to work tonight. I am going to check scores on cricinfo, and here of course. Please write visually.

    I'd be shocked if they played these games pre-Tests and England didn't rest the exact same players.

    Please see picture, when describing an event just put the letter next to it so I know what you are talking about. Unfortunately there is no graphic of a wicket keeper fumbling the ball, so just mark that as a "Z".
