    We're not the best in the world and nowhere near it, but I think that's a bit harsh!

    You then said that ODIs are important, and I said yes, but compared to Tests they're not, and all these huge ODI series are pointless (VB, NatWest, the current 7 match one etc) and I hope Flintoff is rested from one of these long series before long, to prevent burn-out.
    And you forgot to dig up the part where you said that you thought England didn't take ODI's seriously because of the team that they field, which excludes players such as Hoggard and Panesar ( )

    It's a case of taking Tests as the priority, and the ODIs as the ones which are "nice to win", but victories in ODIs are usually forgotten about in a week's time.
    That's it exactly. ODI cricket is like a rough one night stand you soon forget about, Test cricket is like your first love (IMO of course).

    I mentioned Panesar as a very outside possibility.

    Hoggard I feel should be in the side.

    It's only rough for England. Class acts like Australia and India have a hot one night stand.
    England have only recently learnt how to fall in love. Then you've got the Bangladesh and Zimbabwe boys who are utterly rejected: no love and no one night stands.

    You know, I haven't seen it since it was first screened in what, '84 or so when I was 13.

    Why don't they ever show it?
