    If that was the thinking there's no way Broad jnr should've not been in the 14. With his height (7' 6" & growing.... ) you'd fancy him to get some serious bounce in the Windies.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    It's "this sort of attitude" that won the Ashes last summer after 16 years, that's all I give a toss about, that and other Test series'. Are you honestly going to tell me you remember, or give a toss about last years, and the year before that's ODI results?

    I'll enjoy our little group outing for what it is, preparation for the Ashes and a run out for Fred.
    Except that the world cup is something that we've never won before, while the Ashes is something we've won some 1 billion times. The Ashes is a very important series, but its also worth noting that in terms of the history of ODI cricket we are probably the worst side out of the top 8.

    and theres clear evidence of that where? Theres always some sort of movement with the new ball, and Lewis is good enough to be able to use it. Provided he isnt thrown to the lions at the death, like he was forced to do against Razzaq during the summer because no on else was competent enough im confident he'll do a decent job. Infact the best thing might be to have him bowl 10 overs on the trot at the start of the innings.

    Seriously, shocking call to drop Lewis, especially with the movement Munaf & Pathan got.
    I still think this England side has some decent players to make them competitive once Flintoff bowls, Tresco returns and Mahmood is dropped for Lewis. The only problem is that players like Dalrymple, Bell, Harmison, Yardy and Lewis dont have enough ODIs under their belt and some of them should have been picked ages ago to be honest and should have had the experience of playing together. Tinkering with the ODI side a few months before the WC is quite desperate.

    hehehehe..
    love the british mentality... because our team sucks in ODI's we don't give a toss about ODI's.
    I mean if we start taking is seriously we'd be unbeatable of course.

    We lost a test series in sub-cont... its onyl the sub-cont.
    I'm not a big fan of Aus but i'd so love to see Aus beat Eng 5-0 this summer . I think it'll make my year.
