Think you are right foz, interesting to see who they go to. Maybe back to Finn, although I've only seen him on tv he looks to have got his pace back. Completely left field would be Footitt of Derbyshire. He has some raw pace when he gets it right and is a left armer which gives a bit of variety.

No ploplem.

Baz, I put the win down to your Rourkes Drift post above inspiring the English team on to victory. Keep up the good work especially when we are next in battle with our colonial convict cousins.

Finn recalled for the Manchester test. Robson given another (last?) chance.

Will be interesting to see how Finn bowls. Hopefully he has worked on and improved his game. No more hand clipping the stumps.

As Robson played in a winning team he has probably kept his place on that basis. Would rather see Taylor in the team, on an extended run, and try him opening or Root. Might not work but both are more talented than Robson.

Hopefully the team has now turned a corner, confidence has returned and we wont have to rely on the late middle order and tail to post a competitive score.

I think Root would have to go back and open, with Taylor at 5. I don't think Taylor has opened since his Leicestershire seconds days. If he has a weakness it would be judging length against quick bowling and the new ball may find him out early on.

Great days play at the Test today. Had everything. Just as well it was wrapped up today as unlikely there would have been any play tomorrow and possibly Monday.

No idea what the Indians or Dhoni were thinking about. What's Dhoni's/Indian selectors problem with Ashwin? Gets left out and when picked hardly gets a bowl. Didnt bowl until the 105th over in Englands innings. He even weighed in with the bat but does not seem to be rated by Dhoni/Indian selectors. Very strange.

India steamrollered again. Think England have now turned the corner and can start to prepare for next years Ashes.

Watched it in Metro last night. Every time we looked up while chatting another wicket had fallen. Lovely to see India getting flogged. Let's hope that the Aussies can do the same thing in the upcoming summer. Only 4 Tests though and they dodged a bullet due to no Perth Test this year.


If the real Mitch Johnson turns up in England, you will be in trouble . Notice how much better he plays since he has become a West Australian and no longer a mongrel Queenslander.








Watch out if young quickie Gurinder Singh Sandhu (good Aussie name that one ) gets a berth. He cant be too far away from Test selection
