    I'm not commenting on Rodgie any more, TBH. I'm waiting for the next time he comments on me and I have justification to rip into him again. Won't be long, I'd say.

    Well, it's not so much a good move as a required one as Lewis has family matters to attend to. Lewis is infinitely better than Broad at one day cricket at this stage though, so it's an unfortunate occurance if anything.

    England could actually draw a positive out of it though - the management were reluctant to play Lewis for whatever stupid reasons, and they might - just might - be more inclined to play Broad. Lewis is better than Broad, yes, but they're both better than Mahmood, so Broad being there could actually help matters.

    Yea. I wouldn't be at all surprised if Broad plays at some point without there being any further injuries. The tall bowlers I can think of seem to be doing well (McGrath, Oram, Rankin) - obviously you'd expect there to be some success with those three anyway.

    Rankin has been rather impressive this world cup. Even to be named in the same category as McGrath and Oram is a testament to his sucess.

    I'm disapointed Lewis didn't get a game tbh, Saj has done ok i know but Lewis didn't do anything apart from picking up an injury that deserved to get him dropped.

    Keep thinking that, chum(p), does you good to believe everything's set-up in favour of certain things, patently.
