    Anderson to miss Bangladesh tour?

    Apparently Kirtley is in line to be called up instead.

    Personally I think it is good for him to have a break?
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    It is excellent for him to have a brek. But as long as they bring him back in. The selectors can't miss out on this opportunity for such great potential.

    I don't think there's any danger that they won't bring him back!

    I don't think he was attempting to argue with you. I think that he was reassuring by contradiction.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Yeah it will be good for Jimmy to have a break, and maybe Kirtley will get another chance - force his way into WI?

    With the amount of cricket England are playing in the next 12 months, he could do with a break.

    I reckon this is good news for both Anderson and England - they can have a fresh Anderson back for the tour of Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh they will surely beat anyway. Good luck to Kirtley if he comes in - he should be able to remove some wickets there.

    I could yak on all day about how there is too much cricket being played... I just think its awful that a (21 year old?) has to stop playing because of Burn Out... I doubt he will last much past 30

    Personally I would like to see Anderson playing a few games in Bangladesh, if only the ODIs, he needs the confidence boost.

    You can look at the ECB for that and the amount of cricket they will be programs they select. And the other countries cricketing boards.

    For once Rik and the selectors are in complete agreement!

    Remember this day as it may never happen again!

    If he hadn't had the injury I would have wanted him rested for the Sri Lanka tour so he would be ready for the tour of the WIndies. Having a winter schedual like this is madness...just too much going on! When will they realise there is too much cricket and give them a rest?

    So, who will the replacement be?

    Kirtley?
    Johnson?
    Bicknell?
    Kabir?

    Croft?

    Kirtley is the one being touted and I think that's fair enough. I would like to see Richard Johnson go though myself. Robert Croft if they want another spinner, but that leaves us with about 3 seamers doesn't it??
