    Picking Patel is a wasted space in my book.

    I would go with Bairstow at 6, a bowling attack of Monty Swann Jimmy Broad/ Bresnan, but I wouldn't be unhappy if they went with 5 front line bowlers and played Prior at 6.

    I agree with the sentiment of the third quick. But I reckon that if it does happen, they'll select Patel, let Pietersen remain as a change bowler, and be happy with Patel bowling 10-15 overs per new ball, and the English hierarchy don't think that they'll be losing that much with the bat for what they get with the ball.

    I'm always for picking your best six bats plus a keeper, I don't really agree with it, but I think it's what will happen.

    If he has shown better form than the other #6 contenders and is also more of an asset with the ball than those other contenders, what's wrong with playing him?

    Because he is a **** batsman!

    He is a poor batsman and poor spinner - not a great combination for an England player.

    Yeah, quite. Patel's a fifth bowler and Monty's a fourth.

    Assuming Swann's one of the other three it's an absolute no-brainer.

    Btw, I see the Mumbai A fixture isn't listed as FC on cricinfo. Has it been subsequently downgraded or was it never one?

    Cricinfo definitely seemed to think it was one at the time. Whether it's been downgraded or they were just wrong is the question I suppose.

    Normally i'd say the quick if we presume it is Broad and that Anderson and Bresnan are playing. With the fitness doubt I am leaning towards Panesar.

    Yeah Panesar v Onions is a trickier question if that's what it comes down to.

    England should play to their strengths; all this balltalk about square turners is just that. Anderson, Onions, Finn/Broad and one spinner. What chance are two spinners, one fairly mediocre if Patel is picked, going to have against ppl like Sehwag & co.? Chances are, with the sort of form the openers are in, we'll be one or two down more often than not if the English quickies get their act together. Make do with KP to rest the seamers; India is fairly cool at this time of the year anyway.
