    James Anderson not going to play?

    From reports I've heard, he's flown back to England to attend one of his grandparents' funeral.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Here Here. I think James Anderson's a breath of fresh air and has been the find of the tour so far for England. He reminds me a lot of Jason Gillespie and I think he could develop into a great bowler. When Jones's back and Gough, I think Anderson should be in in front of Caddick. Here's my toast to a great young bowler.

    With all the travelling and emotional upheaval I think it would be wrong to play him this week, maybe tell him he's very much in consideration for the 5th Test?

    As for find of the tour, there's also Harmison, who has impressed me greatly.

    He was never going to play in the 4th Test anyway, his already on his way home from what i've heard... Also I heard he will stay in England for a little while and return to Australia after the 5th Test, and play in the final VB matches only.

    He's certainly done no worse than Bond did...

    I mean he has been one of the best in the VB Series, is he a chance of test selection???

    Yeah, we will see. We will see who bowler of the series is.
    According to cricinfo harmison hasnt bowled against Australia. I didnt realise this. He has done well against Sri Lanka- but Aussie will be the true test.
    By the way, in the VB series last season Bond took 21 wickets at an average of 16.38.
    Harmison will have to do very well to not do any worse than Bond!
    life's a gift thats why they call it the present

    :O :O He only played against SRL. Everybody knows SRL are poor away. Even Indian bowlers bowled well against them in ENG. Also Harmison hasn't done anything great to be compared to Bond. 2-39 (10) and 3-45 of around 9 overs which is good but not great.

    Why are we taking any notice of Rik anyway?
    This battle is already won.

    Considering he's very inexperienced in One Day Cricket, those 2 efforts are very good, and I think he's growing in confidence now from getting used to International Cricket.

    I'm not sure why everyone is writing off Matthew Hoggard. He has one bad series and everyone thinks he's crap.

    When he was out in New Zealand earlier this year he was England's best bowler and bowled superbly. Commentary team and supporters were really talking him up.

    He’ll come back better than ever I reckon.

    Knight has been pigeon-holed as an ODI player only, probably unfairly. He had his test chances when England were failing so only averages 24.

    No matter how many 200s he hits in the CC, I'd be very surprised to see him play Tests again. Besides, where would he bat?
