    Yep, Keedy for me.

    As an overall player Blackwell probably, as simply a spin bowler Keedy.

    Probably Gary Keedy of Lancs (SLA), but he's a bit of a bunny so is unlikely to ever find favour with Big Dunc. Same deal with Jason Brown at Northants (off spin), although Brown hasn't had a great year so far. Both must be into their 30s too, so hardly the future.

    I guess Graeme Swann is probably the next in line. For me he's a better spinner than Batty (the official no 2) & at least as good a batter.

    Chris Schofield.

    From one of the first twelve England central contracts as their new Shane Warne, to being dumped by his second division county and going back to try and get a game for Littleborough.

    Keedy has an FC fifty which makes him no worse than any of the three seamers presently picked.

    If we were go with a 2-2-Fred split in India & Pakistan this winter, we would omit Jones or Hoggard (Hoggard I'd guess, reversing etc) and then would could afford another non-batsman.

    When you read that list, it's easy to understand how Giles is no. 1 choice.

    What a bunch of pie-throwers!

    yea fletcher seems to like doing that when we go to the sub-continent but its more likelt he will go for that 2-2 split in India rather than Pakistan.


    Going back to topic, Keedy is definately the 2nd best spinner here but Swann will probably take up the mantle when Gilo goes off the scene....

    In all honesty, they're probably not much worse than what we have to choose from here, outside of MacGill and Warne.

    gah, so tempting to go for chris.........

    I'd have voted keedy, if my finger hadnt slipped and clicked on swann..... grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr


    though keedy is helped by the spin friendly pitches at old trafford.... personally i feel if england are going to play 2 spinners i'd have an off spinner with giles (actually, personally i wouldnt have giles, but thats not gonna happen).... just prefer to have the spinners going two different ways, more troublesome for the batsmen to get into a rythm....

    Hmm, we can't be having this sort of talk going on.

    Don't you know it's impossible for an Aussie to criticise any Australian cricketer, and especially to rank them as equals of English cricketers!!!

    Strangely enough, I agree with you - the last world-class spinner we had was probably Deadly Underwood. Then again, you have a thing in Australia called 'summer' which lasts for much of the year - and we have a thing called 'April', after which it all goes downhill.

    It probably explains why we have a thing called a 'back-up seam bowler' too.
