ECB press conference tomorrow.
Had never really thought of Prior as captaincy material initially, probably because of his wicketkeeping ability. You can't really have skippers who are unable to do the basics, but I think it would be a sound choice now. He comes across as a pretty confident cricketer and would be more positive than Strauss I imagine - in his field settings and risk-taking.

Well you never know, it depends on what's said on that press conference tomorrow, although the absence of Strauss at the conference or at least the presumed absence probably means its a statement on KP rather than Strauss.

Records of what? Could probably break Boon's beers on a plane record I guess.
Wow. I trust cricinfo over most newspapers - they are definitely very good when it comes to reporting facts. I've almost never found them to be wrong.
EDIT: well, they're citing other newspapers, so who knows....

Guardian suggesting Strauss may be pulling the plug.
Right call, IMHO. Deserves at least the Indian series back in the ranks to see if the removal of the burden of captaincy has a positive effect on his batting. IIRC he had a very good tour on our last visit. Twin tons in the first test or have I imagined that?

"as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

Symonds was nowhere near the class of KP but was rightly cast out for being a complete ****.
KP is being rightfully treated like the **** he's behaved like.
Not at all bad man or team management, just people being treated the way they deserve for acting like complete dicks.

I could go on and name 100 more examples if you like of sportsmen who werent liked by team mates but were picked because they got the the job done
For whatever reason, England are trying to rewrite the criteria by which sportsmen are selected and it has already cost them the world no. 1 test and odi rankings
