    Honestly wouldn't want to make the call. A new selection panel has barely begun to take effect at the current time, and how they shall see fit to act is anyone's guess.

    Obviously, if Ramprakash should average 20 in his first 4 games I think we could fairly safely rule it out.

    I would doubt it personally. Strauss has probably bought himself the NZ series at least & may actually hit form again at some point. Anyway, even if he fails or there's an injury I imagine Shah will (& definitely should) get the next go, so Ramps would be reliant on at least two batters breaking down.

    Will he? I highly doubt it.
    Should he? Yes, IMO.

    Probably won't and shouldn't.

    Definite no, if he was to have made a return to the side it would've happened already. Especially with the likes of Shah and Wright, who have been around the team for England's last few tours pushing for a batting spot.

    They already seem to have their middle order full and when Flintoff comes back and Shah still around, I don't see where Ramprakash can fit in, tbh.


    But a very stylish player, would love it if he does make the side and does a McKenzie, obviously in the middle order though, than opening.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Why? His 52 tests have proven he has a huge mental block in test cricket.

    I believe that he really should. But he won't.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    If Luke Wright ever plays a Test-match I shall probably kill the person responsible.

    There might be a school of thought amongst the selectors that that would be reason enough for him to be selected.

    ..Agree, no doubt that he should, but the selectors wont give him a second glance...
