    If I claimed that Warner was a better bat than Cook then people would rightly claim that I had rocks in my head because a few tests don't make a career

    Haddin v Prior is the same

    I still remember Haddin averaging 23 with the bat in the 3 years leading up to this series

    I still remember him dropping (nay, not even getting to) the regulation Joe Root edge that cost us the test at Lords

    I still remember his disgraceful batting against SA which should have seen him marked NTPA

    Furthermore, the only reason Haddin is in the team is that Wade was a joke keeper and not because he did anything to deserve a recall

    I am (obviously) an Oz supporter but hope Prior goes on a tear in this series whilst his team loses 5-0 so we can put this ridiculous argument to bed

    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

    Best part for mine was the berating of Wade, forgetting that social was advocating for Wade's inclusion in the team for this series. Such a fulfilling meal.

    I haven't checked the stats, but Haddin's batting always seems to pick up in time for England.

    Yeah

    He also "observed" a couple of edges flying past him if memory serves.

    You're right, it should be in the thread about Quantum Mechanics, or embroidery.
