    Sometimes I wonder if cricinfo writes these articles about Bopara only to troll this guy. I imagine George Dobell coming eagerly to this thread with THAT grin.

    Either that or they're parodying themselves.

    There can be no other legitimate reason for putting that lump of excrement as the main headline.

    Howe would rather Pietersen and Bell bowl 10 than Dernbach; he wins.

    Indeed. And Bopara at least beats Dernbach's high score of 5.

    Yeah, I'm sure he'd contribute more to the side than Dernbach, particularly if you get 10 overs out of him before the 35th or so. He's certainly not going to do any worse with the ball, and obviously Can Bat.

    Realistically speaking, I'm not sure when you'd bowl him if Woakes is in the side, who it seems is a bit too slow to bowl at the death, his line and length to a set Dhoni in the 47th on Tuesday was just asking for trouble.

    He could well come in for Samit, whose bowling has never really inspired and seems barely worth bowling over Root, but that leaves us without the fast-scoring cameos that Patel has made a niche as lately. Bopara is not a quick scorer, and if he came in for anyone at this stage it'd be Root, which I'm not keen on at all.

    At home, I'd quite like to see him in the side as a 4th seamer, but given free reign over the squad there are a million or so changes I'd make, so I'd have to work it out place by place.

    In all fairness, there's a case Ravi's a better ODI seamer than pretty much all the current squad, save Finn. Bres and Woakes bowl hittable pies and Dernbach sends down runaball liquorice allsorts.

    Trouble is he'd replace Sammy or Root and that's just silly talk.
