    well finn did replace a dropped broad in india. and finn has been rested from this warmup game which would suggest he is either the second seamer come the first test or not going to be selected at all.

    Broad could actually do with scoring some proper runs for once rather than just sloggin when england are well ahead/behind in the game.

    A fit Broad >>>>>>>>>>>>> Finn.

    Also, I'm quite happy for Root to learn his trade in the middle order, he can partner Cook later.

    Just reposting this so it's easy to find for people who want to listen tonight.
    "Your averages, captain, coaches and players can probably survive incompetence over a relatively short series, so if youíre going to be rubbish, make sure itís against Pakistan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand or someone."

    Well Broad was meant to be fit in India but Finn was clearly the better bowler in that series. Fast bowlers are never fully fit. They've gotta deal with the here and now rather than some half baked theory that Broad at his best is better than Finn at his best.

    Broad is sooooo crap when he's bowling badly though...Such a spectrum with him.

    Broad supposedly picked up an injury while he wasn't playing the 3rd test, which just happened to be an injury he had a cloud over before going into the series. I think it's pretty clear that he wasn't fit for the first two tests

    Shame I can't find a picture of my old clubs ground, it's beautiful for a ground that's in a city.

    Yeah and he needs to show he is fit again before he can be trusted for a test. There is no doubt when fit he is good enough but will his foot last multiple spells?

    I'd love to go to a game there some time. It's a shame they haven't played an ODI there for a while.
