    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

    As I kept saying too, that's Monty's natural pace. He can bowl at that pace while still putting a lot of revs on the ball and getting the ball to dip to some extent. You can't just copy him by bowling quicker through the air if it's unnatural to your action and the shape you usually put on the ball or we might as well just play Doherty or Voges. Lyon has to bowl at his own optimum pace for getting the ball to dip, and that's a little slower than what he's been bowling out for the last few Tests he's played.

    Yeah I don't know if I can handle the hundred purely because of the commentary.

    Flintoff would've made an extra paceman a bit redundant though.

    With Fred we already had four front line seamers, plus Colly's little wobblers later on too. A fifth with no spin looks like overkill to me.

    Henriques looks pretty much straight up and down; no work on the ball at all.

    Reckon the only reason he's playing is because Cricinfo ran an article on him itbt.

    How would you like it if I found an Englishman who thought Bopara was a better bowler than Onions and then kept straw manning the entire English population based upon it?

    It's one bloke, and it's ****ing annoying.
