    In terms if an extended run, certainly.

    When I read the post though, my thoughts went to the halcyon days of Paul Jarvis, Nick Cook, Kim Barnett etc etc

    Think all them better TBH, certainly the first two Jarvis was ruined by injury could bowl really sharpish at best, Cook put in some decent performances, umm Barnett was a decent County performer, was out-of-his-league admittedly in Internationals.

    Edit: Should be added I really, really, really hate Dernbach.

    I'm disappointed we've got the proper bowlers on though. Would've thought Ravi would be handy on this pitch against the right handers.

    Just to repeat myself I think Moeen has a good chance of replacing Swann in Eng Test team.
    Yes. Always a big fan of Selvey.

    With England's batting I'm predicting a West Indies win from here. Will need something from Root or Buttler to get England over the line.

    If they start with spin then Lumb will be horrible.

    Decent recovery by Bravo and Simmons. Would be tempting to just bowl the slowies out from here. Only blokes getting tapped are coming onto the bat.

    Always a good idea to get some cheap overs out of a sixth or seventh bowler when a side is bating slowly early doors. Gives you so much flexibility at the end if a couple of blokes get smacked around. Think Broad has missed a trick here

    Yes, So I think we can rule out Joe as a death bowler, success.

    Not really news to those of us with a bit more nous than Broad, but perhaps he'll learn.
