    ECB today announced the appointment of former England international and Warwickshire Director of Cricket Ashley Giles as England ODI and T20 Head Coach.

    Andy Flower will remain as England Team Director and will continue to be responsible for the preparation and playing strategies for the England men's cricket teams supported by Ashley Giles. The change in structure will provide a more efficient and sustainable use of coaching resources, ensuring that both coaches have an opportunity to prepare thoroughly for each series as well as interacting more regularly with other important areas of England cricket.

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    I shall reserve judgement until I find out if Dirtbag is still in the team.

    Actually some interesting decisions to be made with the top order, Bell and KP have been useless in the middle order in the format, but both did well as opener.
    Do I contradict myself?

    Has KP actually officially come out of retirement? If so, does he make the team?

    You'd think so and I'd reckon his relationship with Giles is probably better than his one with you Flower.

    Don't really think it'll make that much difference, except it being very good news for Chris Woakes. Gilo's a big fan.

    Actually, with Giles' being Warwickshire head coach and all, he might not pick KP over Bell.

    He'll pick both and leave out Bopara IMO.

    Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised. The thing Bopara has in his favour is his bowling, which has actually been mightily effective in ODI's recently. England have a problem in that the two people who KP would likely replace where, along with Finn, England's best performers in ODI's this summer. And I don't think KP has done enough to kick out Trott or Morgan.

    So Giles making his next step to being long term replacement for Flower. Guess this is a decent compromise as Flower has bumped his gums for ages about the schedules being too much for one man, at least we don't lose him totally. If we are to go this route then Giles has done a decent enough job I suppose, could argue that Somerset and Hampshire have excelled more in shorter games so their coaches might be better suited to the job but we will wait and see.

    Yeah but even so he's only been the sixth bowler. Could always leave Patel/Bresnan out and actually use Bopara as an allrounder if you were that keen on his bowling, then you'd end up with

    1 Cook
    2 Pietersen/Bell
    3 Trott
    4 Bell/Pietersen
    5 Morgan
    6 Bopara
    7 Kieswetter/some other keeper
    8 Broad
    9 Swann
    10 Anderson
    11 Finn

    I'd rather play Woakes than Bopara personally but I too have always felt Bopara's bowling a little under-utilised so I wouldn't be opposed to that lineup.
