    Sensationalism is rife throughout the article. I rate it 3 stars.

    I am honest, and I'm a liar. I am vital, I am tired.

    I am most importantly never concerned with what I am not.

    The solution is clearly to disband the Cricket Web XI and just let Black run their own domestic competition. All others should play grade or handball.

    **** up ****, yeah that's exactly what I asked for.

    Sick of this bull****, "Black blah blah ****ing blah". My gripe has nothing to do with the club I play for.

    Are you suggesting that the exclusion of Smith is partly due to which club he plays for and the number of other Blacks already in the team? Interesting

    And as a slightly serious response, Smith has opened about four times in the past two seasons. This clearly shows he's ready for facing Lee and Bracken with the white ball.

    An even more serious response:

    who'd you pick, the opening batsman averaging 43 this season and 45 in his career or the opening batsman averaging 34 this season and 41 in his career?

    I would've picked Scott originally, tbh.

    Right. So we agree a fault was made the last time. Can we all move on?

    Me?

    Ive no idea. Im not making suggestions or saying Smith should be selected. TBF, I dont know who is best.

    Regarding the topic, one game and out seems harsh and suggesting his none selection is partially due to the team he plays for seems even harsher.

    Im not saying the selectors are doing a bad job. Frankly I have no idea who the best players are and I trust their knowledge and picks. It just the 2 points I raise rather than anything against the guys that make the picks.

    Nah, look, that post was (rather like half of Smith's comments) so obviously joking that no one should infer anything from it. Judging by the amount of asterisks in response, it worked.

    1 game and out may seem harsh, but the problem was, as Smith duly pointed out himself, that we'd picked an opener to bat in the middle order. Looking at it again, we sought to find the best opener in CWLand, and that appears to be Scott.

    Samuel Vimes = The new Ray Illingworth

    Dan Smith = The batting Devon Malcolm?
