    Collingwood below average in fielding.

    Nought but a typo, and most people would probably realise that instead of trying to concoct stupidity.

    Trevor Penney was a good batsman, just like one Jonathan Neil Rhodes. For fielders that good, their batting often gets overlooked.

    But you'd hardly say he was anywhere near one of the top 15 in the country for batting....
    he averaged about low to mid 30s...hit the one OD century in over 200 attempts...so basically a county level batsman who would never expect to play for England

    He was the fielding coach.

    Well... he didn't play for England and never looked like doing.
    What's your point?

    In the post before you said he was good batsman, said he didn't get the recognition he deserved and compared him to a test level cricketer....
    He did play for England....although only as a fielder

    But that's totally different, because they don't monopolize a spot in the XI with a sub fielder.
    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."

    It was, but most people would realise I'd not accuse Collingwood of being a poor fielder.

    He didn't play for England, playing is being picked in the starting XI.
    Ben Spendlove was a sub-fielder, too, and he took a very good catch.
    If a sub-fielder "played" for England half the professional cricketers in the country would've played for England.
    Penney was a good batsman, but he wasn't a Test or ODI-class batsman and didn't play them.

    Not if, in a couple of years, the only cricket he's playing is for his club.

    I'd think of playing as having a part in the game...as in he put on an England shirt and played cricket for awhile....
    he's not got a number or anything, he's not got a test cap....but he's still played for England
