Haha was -1 degrees there in the night yesterday. KP tweeted about his feet falling off or something.
Seems to have cleared off in the day though -
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

Twenty20 used to be boring.
Briggs probably told the management to gfy after he heard he wasn't playing on Sunday. Hasn't really got a fair crack given the rest of the bowling resources at england's disposal this tour. Probably feeling pretty bitter right now. Him missing the final game makes the selection process easier. I was assuming 2 of Woakes, Meaker and Briggs were going to play instead of Dernbach and Bresnan. Can't make any changes to the batting so that's that.
Not sure you can justify Briggs playing given the general arseness with the bat of the majority of our bowlers to be honest.
marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
You can play him instead of Dernbach tbf.

Would back Root to outbowl him tbh
I just think he hasn't had a fair chance and he would have been a better option that the group of seamers in the squad.
Can't really go in with 2 seamers when all your batsmen who bowl are spinners can you so with 7 batsmen/all rounder (Samit) it's him or Tredwell and don't think Tredwell can be criticised really,
India proved they're no longer the great players of spin they once were during the test series.
It's a moot point now anyway so i don't know why i brought it up.
And I agree Briggs chances are always going to be limited by his poor batting and average fielding. I just feel a bit sad for the guy that he got one game in 7 ODI's and T20's and didn't even play a warmup to the ODI series. If your not going to play in India with the fast bowling resources as we've got, when are you going to play? England obviously don't rate him at present.
