As long as he doesn't get picked as an allrounder (or heaven forbid, a bowler) I'm fine with him being in the team.
    Haha, biggest jinx.

    Clarke should be sent back to List A cricket.
    Inappropriate signature.

    Can't believe Swann still hasn't had a bowl. Even if he came on in the very next over and bowled unchanged until he finished his ten, he wouldn't bowl out until the 45th, and I doubt Strauss'll want a spinner bowling that late. Safe to assume he won't be bowling ten which is absurd.

    Like every other ODI we've played over the past year. Not the first time we've got off to a good start either and effed it up.

    Yeah, so much of it has been down to our inability to do anything against the spinners other gift them wickets. Rashid's bowling has been inconsistent at best today and he's managed 0/15 off 6 which is ridiculous. Which again makes the decision to not be bowling Swann right now even more daft on Strauss's part.

    Witnessing the worst of Michael Clarke as a ODI batsman. Australia are in a perfect position to press the advantage, 3/115 after 25, and yet we have a set batsman scoring at 2-3 runs per over against a leg spinner playing his second game and a batsman who pretends to bowl.

    It has been frustrating watching Australia self destruct over the past two years. Hopefully we only have to endure 2 more years of this before Tim Nielsen gets a heart attack and Hilditch et al are drafted into the army to fight terrorism overseas and then we can replace them with real people.

    I enjoy reading vitriol about Clarke more than I enjoy watching him bat.

    Yep, its a bit of a joke really, they seem to want to use Swann only after they've made sure using the others won't work.

    I'm feeling optomistic about our ODI team at the moment. I reckon we could get to be dangerous, like NZ, which would be cool.

    Let's not complain too much, when the 6th bowler (Colly) is bowling well and the RR is down it makes sense to get a few overs out of the way. We've got seven overs to play with now that Sidey and Anderson don't have to bowl at the death. So what if a couple of those are taken off Swann's account?

    Dangerous but always brushed aside whenever it matters? Err not what I'm looking for. Obviously KP coming back will make the side look better, as will Flintoff *if* he gets back to being fit.

    Think England's bowling isn't too bad, it's reasonably disciplined. If you could pick a batting line-up mooted a few times in this thread (chuck in KP, Trott, etc.) then it could be a top 4 side. Don't have the match winners to be at the top of the tree.
