    Mark Butcher in car Crash

    England batsman no.3 , Mark Butcher has been injured in a car crash, ironically whilst on the way to a treatment session for his thigh strain . Mark Butcher suffered whiplash, as a vehicle hit the back of his car ,and now may not be fit to play. Robert Key, who was picked in the squad as possible cover may now get a shot at playing. Butcher said "I'll just have to see what the medics say because I've got no idea how it's going to affect me," in the Daily Telegraph. "The first thing will be to see how I feel in the morning."

    Well perhaps Key will get his second chance.

    Well I hope he takes it should he play.

    He would miss out for the 2nd Test barring injury, but at least he isn't out of the picture.

    Key would miss out of the second test UNLESS

    1 he scores like 200
    2 Someone in the top four gets injured

    I think key should work on his bowling. if he could bowl occasional something or other, it would be more intersting to the selectors. Or eat less pies.

    Butcher is good if he gets going, and his bowling gives England an extra bowler when it is needed, so he will be missed. Key is a capable replacement though

    Don't see why, when we already play 5 front line, plus Vaughan and Trescothick (and Butcher to an extent)

    At least we wouldn't be able to accuse hm of bowling them - he'd have already eaten them!

    marc you wondered how key would get his chance to play in for england(without playing in the ODI side)....well here it is. now its up to him to make the most of it and make himself undroppable aka strauss
    my guess is that it was rob key driving the car that hit the back of his
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    The chances of someone whose past record is not the greatest, is likely to be batting out of position, and hasn't had a serious bat in a month or so succeeding are slim IMO.

    Fortunately it seems the injury is not serious, but it does look likely to keep him out of The First Test.
    Why couldn't this have been posted in the *Official* thread?
