    It gets a bit tiresome when you're my age (and I tend to think I look pretty young for my age too) to have that said over and over TBH.

    Broad should be in the test team. I reckon he's gun.

    Plus he has dreamy baby blues and blonde locks...

    Probably just jealous of his sublime talent and god-like good looks.

    Would have Broad in the Test team ahead of Anderson and Sidebottom. But I hope from a Sri Lankan POV he's not in the side.

    Could we have one reason why Broad's a better proposition than Sidebottom?

    Sidebottom can swing it both ways on demand and has fantastic control. Broad can, er, swing it occasionally sometimes and you have no idea whether the next ball is a long hop or not.

    I haven't come across that expression, but I would guess it means 'asked for ID.' (to prove age)

    Ah, yeah, duh.

    Yeah, only about 5 times in my life have I bought alcohol (when not making the sale myself obviously) and not been ID'd. And all of them were when I've been stupidly unshaven.

    And I've been pretty pleased about it for the last year or so. Have felt pretty old since my 21st birthday. I can still pass for 17 when totally clean-shaven.

    Gut feeling is when Sidebottom plays on true Sri Lankan pitches (not the ones that we had for ODIs) he will get found out due to lack of support from pitches. He smacks me as good bowler on seam friendly English pitches, but will struggle international away from home.

    I just think Broad has a bit more ability to do something on unresponsive Sri Lanka pitches. Also long term having Sidebottom and Hoggard in the side has a lot of sameness about the attack and lack variety.

    Just a gut feeling really, nothing with either players performance to date to back it up really.

    I don't see either Sidebottom or Broad\Tremlett getting anything whatsoever out of a typical Sri Lankan surface TBH. Sidebottom can get the ball to do plenty in the air, though, and that's the key when there's nothing you can get out of the pitch.

    Yup. He should start with Hoggard and the two spinners, afaics.
