    Jones isnt going to be ready for the first test, no matter how well he bowled in his first outing in over a year.
    Hoggard, Harmison and Flintoff for me.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    At this point I'm optimistically assuming there are no more injuries. I think it would be pretty pointless to not select Simon Jones when there's like 3-4 weeks til the first Test.

    So it would be Flintoff, Harmison, Hoggard and Simon Jones.

    Should be Flintoff, Jones, Hoggard, Anderson/Broad.

    Harmison is an embarassment who does not deserve to walk back in.

    Don't think we need a separate thread for this.

    Normally I'd agree, but considering he wanted to poll it, it's not like he could have just posted it in the tour thread.

    Yeah I was thinking the same after I posted. It is fair enough.

    Harmison who contributes as much as Hoggard, but gets a ridiculous amount of stick. Suggesting Anderson in particular to play ahead of him is somewhat moronic.

    Look at their Test records, despite Harmison being used as a workhorse and Hoggard just bowling when the new ball or conditions suit him.

    No doubt that Harmison is a very good bowler when he's on song, but that only happens spazmodically. He has been completely dire for a while now, although he did have a good first Championship match. If he can keep up that sort of form in county cricket, I'd have no problem with him being picked for the first test, but at this stage I wouldn't have him there ahead of Jones, Hoggard or Panesar. Suggesting that Broad should be selected in front of him is indeed a bit much, but it's far from moronic to suggest that Anderson should be selected in front of him. A lot IMO will depend on early season to county form - lots of bowlers are in with some chance of getting that last place (or places, depending on the balance that ends up being opted for).

    Your enthusiasm for all Cricket is refreshing Prince. You must be up there with SS, Perm & Richard as one of the keenest watchers of all Cricket, regardless of the team.
