Now THAT'S entertainment!
Collingwood doesn't look a great player, but he serves a purpose. The team needs someone who will hang in there and build a large partnership. A middle-order with Bell, Collingwood, Pietersen and a fit-again Vaughan will form a strong combination, with striker Flintoff to come in.
While this is not related, I'd like some comments on his bowling, or rather, how useful it will be. He's done reasonably well as a stock bowler, with those six wickets in a match coupled with a century earlier. With Fletcher keen on multi-skilled players like Giles, he surely can do well, or at least better than Giles, can't he?
