    Why is Jason Brown there then?
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    What's the point of it, and including Giles and Tufnell is a major insult to them IMO.

    Why is England fassinated by spinners when their fast bowlers are better off than the spinners?

    Giles is not crap, or did I imagine his 16 wickets in 2 Test's in SL or his series in Pakistan?!

    Because we need spinners on the sub-continent
    Or something.

    Allright, he is handy in helpful conditions. But apart from that, he is largely blunt.

    Why? I dont think serving spinners who arent good to subcontinent batsmen in subcontinent does much.

    Interestingly Giles has a better SR and a similar average to Tufnell.

    In India...

    Giles has 6 wickets in 2 Tests @ 33.00 (1.82 econ).

    Tufnell has 4 in 2 Tests @ 68.5 (3.4 econ).

    In Sri Lanka...

    Giles has 25 wickets in 6 Tests @ 33.92 (2.66 econ).

    Tufnell has 3 wickets in 1 Test @ 47.33 (3.49 econ).

    But Giles has been fairly decent on the subcontinent.

    True. But for natural ability I'd go for Tuffers any day. Contrary to his public image, with feet splayed at ten to two, his main problem was self belief.

    But for natural ability, Tuffers.

    Usually stay away from 'Worst' thread because they are negative but couldn't resist.

    I'm not sure why England need a spinner in England or other non-spinning pitches. Granted he does the job on sub-continent but he has been lacking (or the pitches have been lacking) in England so why play him? If you talk about variation, why not use Michael Vaughan or Marcus Trescothick as temporary spin options.

    I don't think it's Gile-o's fault because I like him but IMO he doesn't deserve a place in England.
