    Bresnan has looked village in virtually every Test since the WI toured England. Down on pace, just another county trundler. Seems like the English are retaining him for his Ashes laurels from ages ago.

    Decent day. The pressure is going to be on Ashwin & Co. to deliver.

    Looks like I was right about Monty.

    Yes, hindsight is a wonderful thing and Monty for Bresnan was probably the best pick based on today. Based on the warm ups though (which is the only really way you can pick a team) - the team looked right to me.

    It is not hindsight, if I said it should have happened before hand. But Cook and Flower after seeing the pitch close up before the match not to select him is an even worse decision. The pitch was creating foot marks straight away.

    I would have played Monty instead of Broad. Bresnan can reverse swing the ball better.

    I also would have selected Bairstow instead of Patel!

    I agree, thought the three pacers with Fatel was the way to go, but tbf to LFD it isn't hindsight if he stated it before the match even started.

    Just been told that Trott is a dirty, filthy cheat. Anyone care to shed some light on the matter?

    There was also the small matter of taking wickets at 17 against India last summer.

    Why is everyone slagging off Bresnan?

    Broad was just as bad today if not worse yet gets away free from criticism.

    Commentators accused him of claiming a clearly grassed catch. Tad unfair coz he didnt claim it at all, was just unsure.
    In hindsight he probably should have saved everyone's time by simply acknowledging that he hadnt caught it... theres simply no way he could have thought he'd caught it cleanly... too obvious

    Except he was comparing Patel and Monty.
