    Guessing Aussie Tragic deleted it himself. Wasn't massively out of order, just something about Pietersen and Trott being the only "English" batsmen to average 50 or therabouts since Barrington and Compton.

    It had a South african reference, in relation to our batsmen. To be fair I think there's a point to it though, as outlined in Scyld Berry's recent column.

    Cheap digs about it is boring, but in the end it is apposite here.

    Yep.

    It was a crap post from a good member; I'm guessing he realised that and took the appropriate action. Good man.
