Compared to other countries who barely ever have anyone good enough to make the Test team at 21, let alone when they're still teenagers.

    Obviously it's just a theory, descent of swimmers and runners and a whole load of other things makes a difference.

    Asian players making it to the Test team at an earlier age (and maturing in general a bit earlier) is everything to do with the structure of cricket in the country and nothing to do with genetics. Rashid has grown up through the English system and not an Asian based one.

    Bresnan's been taking wickets as well - maybe he and Kabir could open the bowling against the West Indies and Hoggard and Harmison could be allowed a bit more time to find their feet in the county championship?

    Mahmood on as 3rd change against Worcestershire, with Cork and Chapple being thrown the ball before him, as well as Murali getting a go

    Probably one of the last bowlers you want in your side when you've been bowled out cheaply and don't have many runs to play with...

    Systems have an influence but not over this. Look at how much better Bangladesh's U19 side is compared to England's - didn't they beat us 11-0?

    You can't tell me their systems are so much better than England's that their players magically overtake our players and then some, then still because of the systems their players stagnate while our boys get massively better and overtake them again. I'm generalising somewhat with what I've read, so don't take it as meaning *everyone* matures at the same time for one descent - it obviously varies, I'm just saying there's a general tendancy to mature at different ages for different descents.

    Yeah... sods law that isn't it?! He obviously rates himself as better than 3rd change and got a bit riled - maybe Chilton planned it all along?

    I just wish I had it on tv to see weather it was a good ball or a bad stroke..

    What's so funny?. It ain't as if he is a bad bowler at domestic level.

    He's not a good one either, those are also his career best figures.

    IMO he is one of the best English county bowlers around which doesn't say much. A first class average of 28 and list A average of 25 suggests that he is indeed a good domestic bowler.

    good news that Murali won't be playing in the Twenty20 wc or the OD games against Bangladesh because he wants to play more games for Lancs.

    Looks like we'll need him at the moment tbh

    Club vs country. Even if he had made himself available, the Sri Lankan selectors would've done the right thing and "rested" him for those two series.

    Wish Ramps would stop scoring centuries, most depressing thing ever to see him and Hick score centuries.

    91st century today for him.
