    Do England have quotas? Just having a look at Sajjid Mahmoods continued selection, and the fact he goes for over six an over in ODI cricket..

    KP using his feet almost every second ball is a very intellegent move. The Indian bowling is not fast enough to trouble him for pace. The variable bounce is negated a large bit by approaching the ball sooner rather than later after it bounces.

    Only a quota of at least half the side being clinically hopeless at this form of the game.

    KP goes. Brainless shot, but good thinking from Dravid to give Munaf the slip.

    Best players left at home, structure of the team flawed and people still think its sensible. Honestly, Im getting fed up of always being right.

    Ive repeated myself many times about the make-up of the Eng OD side and Ive no need to repeat it again. Sufice it to say too many inexperienced and limited rookies are getting picked ahead of experienced and domestically proven veterens.

    At internationl level you pick your best team not random guys with no track record. A proven recipe for failure.

    Sorry mate, but your first para reads like you've no more idea than the rest of us. Pardon me if I haven't read your previous threads, but it was only a civil question.

    I didnt mean to sound short and curt with you. Im just ****ed off and annoyed with the way this OD team is being built and designed. It was easy to predict and noone can say these are the best OD players in England.

    Sorry if you felt the snappyness was directed at you, it wasnt.
