    it is indeed his last game. highly possible cameron white replaces Murphy at no 11
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    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

    Warwickshire really have missed Barker both bowling and batting wise. Guildford meant to be a road. Ponting might get 300 in a day.

    cricinfo being a bit buggy.

    Indeed. The summary page is updating fine for all the games but if you then click the "Full Scorecard" button it goes way back in time for some reason.

    I got this as the main picture on my Cricinfo homepage

    151317.5.jpg

    With the caption: Manoj Tiwary's 93 dug India A out of a hole on day one of the game against England XI in Mumbai

    It also keeps telling me Compton is on 30.

    Glad it not just me then.

    Welcome to your relegation battle Mr Ponting. 585-6 Warwickshire, Barker has a ton

    Dernbach's figures today - 17-3-44-3, not bad in the context of what Warks have done. Looks like they're intent on 600.

    Quite a few 400+ totals around today, must be the weather.

    Has Borthwick been bowling much? Not really seen any Durham scorecards this season.

    Nah he hasn't really, although that was the case with a lot of the spinners playing early in the season. He's picked up wickets whenever he's been given a decent bowl though, including a six wicket haul IIRC, and he's been batting three.

    Ball back in the selectors court now then as to the ashes. Compton has done what he needed to do but is his inept display in the NZ series going to cost him?

    I think they'll be really keen to keep Compton in. Firstly dropping people after a couple of poor performances is not generally the way they like to do things these days. Whatever the Yorkshire mafia in the media do to pile the pressure on.

    The other factor is the disruption it would cause, especially since the ultimate state of Pietersen's fitness still isn't settled. Having Root jump up and down the order dependent on Pietersen isn't very satisfactory, and if they make the decision to install Root as opener regardless then it leaves the problem of identifying another middle order player to cover.

    So i imagine a preferred option, from a stability perspective, if dropping Compton would be to find another opener - but that undermines one of the main drivers behind getting rid of him ie. getting Bairstow into the team.

    I think a lot of his trouble against New Zealand was effectively self-inflicted - ie. letting the pressure of Root's runs get to him. He needs some confidence, some runs under his belt, and some reassurance about his place in the team.
