    Don't get me wrong, I think Tredwell is the right pick for MotM.

    Yet, what really made the difference is Patel's 44 of 20. Obviously, it was a good batting track, but I didn't see this one coming (just like I didn't see Tredwell's bowling today ftr). IIRC he only got one lucky boundary.

    You can't use who hasn't been capped in ODIs as a measure of depth because you end up scraping the barrel, because for the above reasons everyone worth talking about gets a limited overs game thrown at them sooner or later.

    And besides you're all forgetting the mighty Rafiq.
    I'm not using it as a measure of depth. I'm using it as a talking point, if I want to know who has been capped I can go check on cricinfo. What I want to know, is who are the best one day bowlers we've got floating around the county circuit who haven't already tried.
    People slag off Dernbach constantly. But for a series like this, where our front liners are being rested, who do people want to see ahead of him?
    If Dernbach and Meaker aren't the ones to be calling up from domestic cricket because their records don't warrant it, then whose records do?

    But even a 3rd string attack will probably feature players who have been capped as well.
    Would rather get 10 from Samit and Root in these conditions than pick Bres.
    Finn, Jimmeh, Broad, Swann + those two.

    Seriously, not enough has been said in this thread and the analysis i am seeing on TV about what was one of the worst captaincy performances in a while from Dhoni.
    wow.....itstl....couldn't have guessed
    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

    It's not really a talking point though. Our ODI bowling depth is non-existant, and has been for years.

    cbf checking through two or more mammoth threads to check if someone else has pointed this out, but I enjoyed the fact that both England and South Africa scored 325-4 today.

    (Also enjoyed the fact that India didn't).

    Meaker's been picked because he's quick and they want him around the England coaches to see if he can be a Test player.

    Dernbach's been picked because of a myth, and I'd rather play literally anyone, Meaker included, of the bowlers to have played for England in the last couple of years. If he's in the side, I'd rather part timers bowl his 10 overs. He's that bad.
    And we still haven't walked in the glow of each other's majestic presence.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    It's getting to the stage where I'd recall Bopara and bat him at 8 tbh.

    The post started off so level-headed and serious and then turned to me having to imagine Howe captaining a side that contained Dernbach and not giving him one solitary over, instead turning to the likes of Bell and Pietersen to combine for his ten overs. It was just such an unexpected second paragraph.

    Though Bell does have a lower ODI bowling average than Dernbach...
