    Thanks PEWS. I'd go with that team as well. Broad, Anderson and Steyn with Philander 12th man for either Steyn or Anderson.

    I wouldn't bother tbh; I think it'd just result in Kallis scoring a lot quicker than he's managing currently by slamming Bopara to cover every ball at the moment.

    It's really quite amusing just how much effort he's putting into every shot for such little result.

    Swann's bowling average currently just under 30 is a true reflection of him. I think his average will settle somwhere near 31 around the end of his career
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Fail to see the comparison. How does subbing Broad for Philander lose anything other than a little tail end batting?

    Reckon Strauss should be careful with over bowling Bopara. Although he is batting at six so I might be being over cautious.

    The bowlers got them into this so they need to take their medicine. Unless you can find a batsman who can just bowl little spinners.

    You pick the eleven players that gives you the best team, not the best eleven cricketers you have. Philander having a marginally better bowling record than Broad in the comparable time does not count the fact that in roughly the same time Broad's batting has been far more significant - and it's not a little thing either - and has won England two Test matches and kept them competitive in another.

    The media really are so much keener on Bopara than the fans, aren't they?

    I can understand the argument that he deserves a go after being the Test reserve for so long and (finally) performing in the last ODI series; that's all well and good. But better than Rudolph? Really? And unanimously so in the com box? Eh.

    There is KP. Then again, he's KP.
