    Indeed, he has shown in a few innings that he can improvise and accelerate at the end of innings. I think we should just forget his shell-shocked stuff against the Ozzies, and hope that he can regain the form that made him look such a prospect less than a year ago.
    Do I contradict myself?

    Yeah he looked such a different player in the ashes to what he did against New Zealand at the start of our summer last year, saw him at Lords and he was seriously impressive, it is not like he lacks the shots or anything. I would probably leaving him out the side for Sri Lanka but as we have all said a million times it all depends on county form at the start of the year.

    Hopefully Moeen does well but for a while now his 4 day cricket has overtaken his shorter form cricket.

    Cricinfo trolling the masses by having Dernbach listed in the team.

    Lumb making his debut somewhat less exciting, a player I have never had any great love for it has to be said. Still wish him all the best.

    He's 34, just wondering how many England players have made an ODI debut at that age or older. Cowdrey and Dolly in the early games, and Gifford played once or twice didn't he - can't be too many others.


    Those two old Yorkshire chums Close and Illingworth as well of course. Most on that list are going to be pre-1975.

    Is there any reason in bowling Root? Theoretically there are 8 better bowlers than him in this team.
