    Expect a slightly quicker pitch but still slow and low, won't be as quick as the one v NZ anyway.

    This game may well be decided by which side is bowling when the cloud comes in, there will be very little in the deck for the bowlers but look up and they may have a chance if it is gloomy. Hard one to call but I wouldn't be at all surprised to see a high scoring bore draw here.

    Depends what you mean by hype, if it is him being much better than Jordan/Woakes/Plunkett then yes it is just you.

    early reports that Starc's injury is minor, he should be okay for Lord's i think

    Yeah, nobody has called him world class or anything just that he is a big upgrade on Jordan. Think Woakes did ok last summer but is injured and Plunkett has widdled on the chips a bit this summer by being a bit silly.

    I reckon the English press are overrating him by implying that he'll be more dangerous than Broad just because he hits the deck, but he complements the attack really well.

    Begs the question as to why you lot persisted with Jordan for so long though. Imagine him playing in the last Test, could easily have provided the release valve our bats needed to pile on a big score.

    Well I asked the question in the match thread and the answer I got was we had to check the data.

    Sums Moores up really.

    I was a bit of a Jordan apologist. He bowled really well in his first few one-day matches and he's a great allround athlete. You say he was persisted with 'for so long' but really he only got 3 series and deserved the first two.

    Mark Wood has been a smidge overrated because he's so likeable. I don't mind that.

    Haha, I was on record almost from the moment he appeared on the scene expressing bewilderment at what England could possibly see in him, so.

    Yeah thank **** if he is. Starc seems to bowl well when he is angry at something first at Shane Warne then at that ankle injury. Bruce Banner of cricket

    I prefer the Bill Bixby version to the Lou Ferrigno one.

    Anyway wasn't it David?
