As many Indians as they like though.
Don't let the fact that he moved to England at age 11 and has played all of his cricket there stop you either.
But back to the topic of the thread. England may not have yet resolved the troublesome No 6 position but IMO the options are looking are lot more healthy than they were 2 or 3 years ago.
Since Collingwood they have messed around with; Morgan, Patel, Bairstow, Bopara and Taylor with little success from any of them. I know it is still very early to make this call but the most comfortable player I've seen in the position and the one that just "feels" right so far is Joe Root. And I do know I say that despite 1 good test match in India followed by 3 poor ones in NZ........but I do see a lot of potential in this lad.
But the main advantage we have now that we really didn't have after the retirement of Colly is that Matty Prior is currently more than good enough to move up the order and make the No6 his own.......finding a No7 is now a much easier prospect with several viable candidates and gives us the real option of fielding 5 bowlers again.......an option I love but doesn't seem to fit with Flowers plans.
Finn is more than capable. For all of the premature hailing of Australia's fast bowling talent we'd be happy to have him on our side.
Phlegm is like the diet to my coca cola. The ready salted to my salt and vinegar.
