    God help us all.

    Can only assume that it's because we've suddenly decided to play exciting/entertaining cricket rather than winning

    Dernbach does tick a lot of boxes: the Surrey paceman provides further ammunition to the 'England pick South Africans' brigade, and in the wake of Kevin Pietersen's departure he adds a fresh batch of tattoos and Dimitri Mascarenhas-esque bling for the cameras to pick up on.
    Heh.

    Also keeps up the fact that no one has any idea what the hell we're going to do next.

    His List A economy of 6.33 is obviously on the high side, am presuming plenty of that is bowling during the powerplays and at the death. He does have some excellent variations on the slower delivery, and wonder if they have gone with someone hopefully capable of bowling during these difficult powerplay overs, as we currently look pretty short on answers.

    I know Dernbach comes in for plenty of criticism, much of it strikes me as being overly harsh, but then again I may not have seen as much of him as some people on here have. He always does a decent job when I've seen him.

    Such an underwhelming selection.

    Surely we wanted someone to come straight into the team ? even more so after Tremletts last game.

    Another South African to , when are we going to ease up on this ? it takes the piss.

    Called it in the Windies domestic thread but didn't think it would be this quick. Really is a joke.

    Apparently had a good stint with the Lions squad where he was able to showcase his ability to reverse the ball. The reasoning behind his selection seems obvious to me, Flower has pin pointed the fact that reverse swing is the key to bowling in the later overs of the games this world cup and we've seen bowlers like Rampaul use it to good effect. I dont suppose that he will play against SL, but considering that the England pacers other than Bresnan have been going at a rate well above 6 anyways, I can see some logic behind his selection.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!
