Glad to know that I am not the only one who laughs at totally random, stupid jokes.

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
Agreed, but long on and/or long off had gone very straight, and our innings did implode in the first game due to picking out the man on the straight boundary on a regular basis.
There's never anyone behind the keeper, either...

Bairstow out of the one-dayers, Root called up. Would have been my choice.
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,

"Family illness" the reason. Sounds bad, hope it's nothing connected to his dad's depressive illness.

it's interesting that Root seems to have bypassed everybody again to get into the ODI squad. England must obviously really rate him given he seems to have overtaken a few names to get in the ODI squad without outstanding OD domestic batting. Thought Hales who batted well in the T20's or Stokes who did well for the performance squad might get a go. But given Roots promotion here and the fact he is captain of the lions od tour to Aus means they must be looking at him for the next World Cup in Aus.
I don't really see where there is a space available in the top order particularly for someone like Root given there is already a logjam with Cook, Trott, Bell, KP in the top 3.
One would have thought with future intentions they'd be looking at possibly Hales at the top of the order to contrast Cook and Trott. Or Stokes in the middle order where positions are a bit more up in the air and there is a need for a powerful batting allrounder.
I'll be interested to know what England intentions are with Root here because I can't quite see what they're trying to do at present.
