    Academy Squad

    No Ian Bell in there - seems a trifle bizarre.

    Anyone know why?
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    From CricInfo:

    Warwickshire's Ian Bell, widely tipped as a likely England selection at the start of the summer, misses out with a back injury.

    "Following discussions with both Warwickshire and Rod Marsh, Ian Bell has not been included in the academy squad to go to Australia," Graveney said. "He has a stress fracture of the back and it is felt that he needs a rest after a long period of continuous cricket.

    "However, we will consider including Ian on the trip to Sri Lanka in the New Year provided he makes a satisfactory recovery from injury," he added.

    Full Academy Squad
    Kabir Ali (Worcs)
    Jimmy Anderson (Lancs)
    Gareth Batty (Worcs)
    Ian Blackwell (Somerset)
    Rikki Clarke (Surrey)
    Kyle Hogg (Lancs)
    Gordon Muchall (Durham)
    Monty Panesar (Northants)
    Chris Read (Notts)
    Darren Stevens (Leics)
    Chris Tremlett (Hants)
    Jamie Troughton (Warwicks)
    Alex Tudor (Surrey)
    Graham Wagg (Warwicks)
    Mark Wallace (Glam)

    Seems OK to me!

    Also I.Bell was in the acadmey last year, so as the rest of the sqaud is changed every year it seems fair that he should as well

    I think that Tudor's inclusion is not just a 'second chance' (he was at the Academy last year). The way we have been going through seamers recently, I reckon that he's cover for the main Ashes squad.

    Re: Chris' article - Two spellings: Academy and Gordon Muchall.

    Tudor will be cover for the main squad.

    Rich - there are a few leftovers from 2001-02 - Wallace for example.
