    i might stick Solank ahead of Smith for the opener slot & Keedy/Swann ahead of Batty but other than that i agree with this side....

    Solanki opening in a test match would be a disaster!

    And as much as I would prefer Keedy, Batty is next in line.

Butcher should be playing for England rite now instead of bell and vaughny should be batting at 4 trescothick is a fluke how he average 45 at test level still amazes me my england second 11 wouldnt have owais shah cmon how many ears can u wait for one guy to develop.

    By the way rob key is a joke there is now way he should be playing test cricket. He unfit out of shape and he scored teh worst doyuble hundred i have ever seen in my life wait justin langers 223 against india in 1998 at the scg was easily the worst well teh seond worst double hundred ever on a featherbed of a wicket against a bwloe par windies attack bowling two lengths all mach full or short. Not much of a CV rob key. Find a new job.

    Thorpe's still one of the top 12 batsman in England.

    I didn't hear about Hicky retiring.
