Really apart from a the odd WC game and the in the VB Series game at Adelaide, the 2nd Natwest Challenge match against Pakistan were he picked up 4-27 including that hat-trick (not that they prove anything), his Test debut where he bowled (again a five wicket haul is special but that important) he really hasnt done much.
He has bowled countless bad balls and has looked unthreatening. I dont believe in this rubbish that he is tired, well I believe that is just an excuse and probably five, ten years ago he could have and probably would of bowled more overs then he did.
I think the mistake to not let him play any cricket for 12 days between the Natwest Series final and the first Test at Birmingham was wrong. I understand he is young, but for him to go 12 days with any match bowling is ludercious. And I doubt he would of bowled in the nets at all.
So far we have seen how useless he is, and maybe I just think it would be too kind to take him to the sub contentient or to the Carribbean when he should be working on his bowling and getting his head position into position.
