    Not sure about taste but certainly less complicated, after all I'm only a bogan so hey shoot me

    PS- Nice to see you've been following me closely

    I really feel that Onions has been hard done by. I mean, he averaged about 15 with the ball last season and he can't get a game ahead of an obviously out-of-form Bresnan? Not like they would miss his batting either.

    I'm starting to worrying it might be time to stick a fork in Bres as a serious test bowler. Since he came back from the protracted elbow issue(s) he's really, really lost pace.

    Winter of 10/11 he was up around and above 85mph but now he appears to be struggling to get to 80mph even. Prior up to the sticks was the final proof how much he's regressed.

    As nice as the extra batting is, not when it's at the expense of more penetrative bowling, ta. I imagine Broad and Swann compare pretty favourably with any 8s & 9s we've ever had anyway.

    Yeah, Bresnan was really down on pace today, even MrPrez is probably quicker than him.

    To be fair to Bresnan he did completely outbowl Onions in the warmup matches and he's only playing because of Finn's injury anyway.

    Did you watch them then?

    I love how people judge a small difference in stats as being 'completely outbowling' someone, after Onions has utterly dominated in County Championship for a while now.

    Also what's the point in all our staff if Bresnan is bowling at no sort of pace and they still pick him?

    Did you watch it??

    Don't think I'd quite call the difference between 9 wickets @ 19 and 2 wickets @ 53 "small" either.

    We also know at least one straight-forward catch was dropped off Onions, then you have things like bad calls, bad luck. That sort of difference is not remotely significant statistically - let alone with all the other things like bowling against better batsmen etc.

    A whole season - that means something. Some warm-up games in different conditions and situations mean next to nothing unless you're watching them.
