    He'll probably be extradited to the US and they'll tag his case at the end of Abu Hamza's show trial, so he'll be about 50 by the time its done and dusted

    Even Her Maj thinks Hamza's a wrong 'un, so he must be beastly.

    Although quite why there was such a furore when the journo let it slip that she thinks he's not a very nice chap is a bit baffling. I know she's a constitutional monarch and must be disinterested and all, but it's not like the country's going to march on Buck House in support of him, is it?

    Thinking a religious loony with a hook's a rum fella is a pretty uncontentious opinion. In my opinion.

    Couldn't agree more - the bloke, like KP, is as guilty as the proverbial puppy sitting next to a pile of poo, but even a wishy-washy bleeding heart liberal like me has been appalled by the wriggle room the ****er has been allowed

    I'm not a mod, shockingly, so this is a polite request, but could we please keep the KP bollox, to the officially designated KP Bollox thread. Every England cricket chat is infested with it.

    Will rage if Rohit Sharma is picked for the ODIs. In his last 5 one dayers he was outscored by wides..He's had a thoroughly mediocre career so far and deserves no more chances afaic.

    So if the Barmy Army go on tour I am presuming they will need to change the name of their ringleader given the last weeks revelations.

    I for one hope they pick both Raina and Sharma.

    The questioning their batting line up at the moment is pretty sizeable given the lack of form of Tendulkar but I can see him going big. Oh and the minor thing that Gambhir's done sweet FA for about 3 years.

    going out to watch the mumbai and kolkata tests (2 and 3rd of the series). We're going to get thrashed but should be fun all the same.

    There are a few slight reasons to be positive. The indian batting isn't looking as polished as it has been for a long time. Sehwag and Gambhir are both struggling. Tendulkar also and must be near the end. No Dravid or Laxman. Of course Kohli is the coming man but hopefully england get one bad series out of him before he pulverises us for the rest of his career.

    Even with all there batting problems it should be a coast for india especially if Dhoni gets his wish that the wickets are real raging turners. Could be a load of 3 day games.

    Joe Root really worries me. I didn't think he should have been selected and seeing him bat again in the last week albeit in 20 over cricket has hardly filled me with confidence that he's good enough yet.

    Hopefully Cook and Trott manage to bat 3 or 4 days whilst i'm out there even if no-one else agrees. Nothing more calming than these two batting.

    Would be nice to see Sachin make some runs in Mumbai and wouldn't be too begrudging of Kohli (or Pujara) if he scored some runs just to see a couple of future legends.

    Fully expecting that selectors will pick Yuvraj for this series

    Has he had much first class cricket since he returned?

    Ok to let him go out and slog in shorter versions but will he have enough match practice to play a proper innings?

    When KP returns he will be the banana..

    #cricket what a great relief for England that Pietersen's back to restore the saffa quota. Missed him at the WT20. #nofinals #pomafrica

    Bloke needs to do his research; we'd already included Compton to maintain our Saffer quorum.

    I find it amusing for such a mainstream journo to be a massive troll
