    If Jonathan Trott ever plays for England we could well lose every series very badly.

    seriously sometimes you are hard to understand Richard you place so much emphasis on List A average, but trott averages over 40 in List A, a figure which only one player in the England side can match, and you say we would lose every series very badly if he played?

    I place emphasis on the fact that a bad List-A-OD average means someone almost certainly won't make the grade in ODIs, but I certainly don't think that a good domestic record will automatically translate into a good international one and having seen Trott bat quite a few times it's a mystery to me why he averages so high and I can't conceive he'd do anything of note in ODIs.

    How many under-70-year-olds are called Jim?
    Didn't James Anderson make it quite clear he hated being called Jimmy? And heartless souls still call him it.
    IIRR Jamie Troughton infinately prefers Jamie to Jim, though he's Jamie and not James.

    A ruddy important one

    Tried his best but got saved by the rain

    Didn't get a chance to lose it cos Vaughan didn't trust him

    No-balls galore

    8.1-0-67-1

    And though he was England's best bowler in South Africa in terms of economy rate, that was highly inflated by bowling to someone who shouldn't have been in the team in the last ODI and a spell in clouds where Hoggard took 2-35 in the first, and he was for the most part doing just as poorly as everyone else.

    It's harder to look for the winning contributions he's made since the start of 2004...
