On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Good news especially for Englands one day prospects, and the way Strauss batted against West Indies can see a test spot opening for him without too much difficulty aswell.

    Spose now he just has to convince himself and the selectors he wont go loopy again if things go pear shaped.

    A heroic return for the twenty20 world cup?

    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    He's crucial for their one day set up. Providing the likes of Trott and Masc's perform even remotely close to how they've done in List A cricket thus far and Flintoff plays more regularly, Trescothick's return could actually spark England into being a decent one day team.

    I don't think he's particularly required in the test arena really - he's undoubtedly a good test batsman, but I don't see any need to bring him back at the moment really.. he's not significantly better than Strauss (despite what his recent form will tell you) and I certainly wouldn't drop Cook for him. Given his other problems, I'd leave him out of the test side for now.

    Either way, great to see he's overcoming whatever was troubling him and is close to a return.

    Here's a question:

    How often have Trescothick, Pietersen and Flintoff played together in ODIs?

    I'm guessing never. Certainly very few times.

    If Tres keep's up good form and can make it through next winter with the Lion's, and probably the one day side, he may push for a Test recall. Doubt he'll play against India though.

    Virtually never. Very briefly in the summer of 2005 against Australia and in the next series afterwards against Pakistan. After that, one or more has always been absent.

    And I've never been able to shake the feeling that having all three in the same line-up could easily disguise the inefficiencies of Strauss, Vaughan, Collingwood, Bell, Geraint Jones, or any other ineffective batsman they happened to pick.

    Not very much maybe that's a reason why England have been so dire in one dayers. Because many of there players are out.

    Really... good news this i hope Tresco makes a rocking comeback.

    Speaking of Tresco he just 4 sixes and a two in 5 balls against a slow left armer in the Twenty20.

    And two more sixes this next over before hitting a full toss to a fielder - 6 sixes in 8 balls in all.

    Exactly - too bad they you blokes haven't had a fully fit team for around 15 years.
