    Someone all in adidas would be a scally but not if they are wearing it for sports. As a sportsman, KP can wear whatever he wants and get away with it, unless he starts hanging round by the shops across the street from me, asking me for a light and to go and get him a bottle of white lightning, and lambrini for his pregnant missus.
    Haha, all I know about Chavs is from CW. Never heard of it anywhere else and I have quite a few pom mates as well.

    Would be an interesting idea for a thread, tbh.

    These days all you have to do to be labelled a chav is swear and have an ASBO. In my day, chavs were football hooligans who were to be feared.

    I think it could work once he doesn't put too much pressure on himself. As Ponting was asked during the Ashes if he feels the pressure of being captain when he goes out to bat, he said no he just goes out thinking he is #3 batsman that has to score runs, but he did also have a superb team to lead. Blokes like Lara & Tendulkar had very inconsistent sides & given how fanatical their nations are about cricket the results really did affect their batting.

    England ODI team has been poor but they do have the players that can make a good ODI team & maybe KP could be the perfect leader, he does have that aggressive nature about him & thats the kind of leader the ODI side needs IMO, since a conservative leader like Collingwood won't help the psyche of the ODI side since a conservative approach is what has got the ODI side struggling for so long.

    I'm interested, why do you think Collingwood is a conservative leader?

    At least I'm not the only one who misread it - quite unfortunate really...

    England's ODI team need a skipper similar to Ponting IMO, a man who can lead from the bat with his aggressive batting approach thus ispiring the rest of the team to follow a similarly. Collingwood is an established ODI player but i don't think he would be the right man to lead the side, its would be KP or a rejuvenated Trescothick.

    Well I'll list what I reckon, of those who've played ODIs recently and are likely to again in the near future...

    Pietersen

    That's it.
