    As of the end of March 2010, I'd not disagree. But in 4 weeks' time I might well do. That's how fickle cricket can be.

    Pietersen for England? I'm not yet totally convinced that Strauss's recent resurgence will be a long-term thing.

    There is no way that Michael Clarke is Australia's best cricketer.

    Ponting, Katich, Hussey, Watson, Johnson, Bollinger are all better.

    He may not be likeed but as far as I am concerned Clarke is comfortably Australia's best batsman these days.

    Strauss' resurgence is already more long-term than Pietersen's slump (was?).

    Also, it started nearly 2 years ago now and has been based on something which is clearly sustainable (a modification in his game) rather than something which is clearly unsustainable (ie, a purple patch of form).

    As I say above, you never know what's around the corner in cricket and any player - I mean any player - can slump terminally starting with the next game he plays. But reasonable assumption must be that Strauss has a good few years ahead of him as a quality Test batsman yet.

    No chance.

    If I had to choose between Ponting and Clarke, with only one of them being allowed to play in the Ashes later this year, I'd choose Ponting without hesitation.

    Really? Over the whole career then obviously but don't think there is much doubt who was the better player last summer.

    EDIT: just realised how stupid I was being then, agree with you obviously.
