    Should broad

    Do you think Stuart broad has
    done enough to get a place in the test squad for england?
    i admit he is pretty uneconomical
    but to be honest you need
    to take wickets
    and he is often getting at least 2 wickets per a game for england

    They have been grooming him, he came out for the Ashes last year, and looks a fine prospect, hope he has his dad's passion
    You know it makes sense.

    He's not looked all that impressive so far in his career - but he has been thrust into the international stage at a young age. He had obviously got talent, though.

    Mind you - how sad for Broady that he got his first England cap before he got his first pube. The poor guy looks like he's ten years old.

    be serious who is he going to replace
    hoggard anderson sidebottom ....no and with the probability that two spinners will be used there is posibly 1 more pace man spot and thats between harmison and broad and broad isnt better than harmison.

    also even broads dad said he wasnt ready for test tour yet

    At first glance I thought this was a poem.

    Can't hurt to have him in the squad, but hard to see him getting preferred to Hoggard, Sidebottom and Anderson. He's a way down the pecking order still.

    Well personalitly i dont even think harmison should even play
    he is getting old now and you never know if he is going to do well
    or not
    he would be too risky to be put in the side

    Harmison should not be in the team, but he probably will be. Even ignoring him though, you'd have to say that Hoggard, Sidebottom, Anderson and Tremlett would be in front of Broad. They've done nothing to deserve the axe.

    Yeah you are probably right there i guess
    i think it will be annoying if harmison does play though
    waste of time if he doesnt do well

    Tremlett's bowled poorly in the ODIs.

    Broad needs to look long term rather than the present.

    A winter off doing strength work would really help him.

    He needs to add 5 kgs and a yard of pace before being considered for Tests

    How does that change the fact he looks like he's just hit double digits?
