    have we actually talked about broad being vice captain? like, it seems matt prior was the man to pick. exp'd keeper, very very safe spot, 'good guy' etc. know broad is the t20 captain, but this ain't t20 cricket


    and he's a bowler
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    Because the vice captaincy position is code for next captain. If Prior or whoever has input on the field they will give it anyway so it doesn't really matter. Giving Broad the vice captaincy and T20 captaincy is their way of telling him he's their golden boy, though whether or not that's a good idea is another debate.

    And ftr Cook will not get injured, he is a reptilian

    Finn definitely ruled out, so limits the options somewhat.

    So true, will be captain forever.

    If Finn is out then Panesar in for Bresnan is inevitable and the rest of the bowling to stay the same.

    I think they should play Root instead of Patel and bat him at 6 but I think it is very unlikely, a lot of support for Morgan in the press the last day or two which I find a little strange.

    A lot of hte press are somewhat moronic it has to be said.

    Usually with them comes down to a lot of hindsight smugness and drop X because his figures aren't good.

    Morgan is a media friendly sort of player as well I suppose but almost no mention of Root when they were discussing teams yesterday.

    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

    Stealing that one.

    I think Kohli's twin 50's in Perth were a greater performance than his Adelaide ton. Much tougher track etc...

    Which county does he play for?

    Southern based media will always prefer one from down there.
