    Interesting, I was watching a segment on the England's young squad preparations, and I heard Vaughan say 'The Media is your chance to show the world who you want to be shown as' or something along the lines, is that a bias or ...?

    I wasn't criticising the innings, I was criticising their headline worthiness. In the context of what was going on (lots of other matches) they weren't particularly newsworthy innings.

    England pick Eoin Morgan ahead of Ravi Bopara for first Sri Lanka Test | Sport | guardian.co.uk

    The Guardian wrote the same :-

    "Eoin Morgan was unexpectedly preferred to Ravi Bopara as England's likely No6 batsman in a 12-man squad for the first Test against Sri Lanka."

    And explain to me how that article and similar articles are having an influence on cricket? Its certainly not reducing the amount of T20 matches played.

    Either rename this thread "opinions in the media that I disagree with" or actually make points that stick with the contention of your first point.

    It fits the Cricinfo theme of bashing T20 with misguided bollocks.

    It seems to be in fashion at the moment and Cricinfo is perpetuating it. Of course it will hardly make a dent in terms of impact on T20 cricket, but that's because it's a popular format.

    Lol, that's terrible journalism.

    Morgan played all 6 home Tests in 2010, went to Australia as the back up batsman and scored 190-odd in a warm up game. Anyone who expected Bopara to be picked ahead of Morgan last year is an idiot frankly.

    Cricinfo has the same sources as The Guardian?
