Bumble I feel better now! I am captain of a local cricket club and last year we lost a game because our best batsman was on the toilet just like Sarwan! In a reduced overs game of 33 overs we were 100 for no wicket off 23 when a wicket falls. Our best player is busy else where so our number 4 took his place and proceeded to faff around for 5 overs before getting out leaving our best player and big hitter with 5 overs batting. We only made 160 and lost by 4 wickets! I have no doubts that a relaxing trip to kasi cost us a win! Who would have thought Hadleigh CC and the West Indies have toilet troubles in common! And before my team mates add the obvious comment....yes my captaincy is normally toilet!

I think having wright opening might not be a bad idea, he likes to hit the ball hard and often gets out batting later on in the innings being caught out in the deep, pop him at the top then if he plays a daft shot (which, even though he played a good knock in this game, he often does) he'll get away with it, he could provide a good kickstart to the innings. For me prior is just too limited with the array of attacking shots he has to open the batting. England won this one yes but I still think changes are needed, I hope they are made because that batting line up still just isn't right.

My partner and I are confused as to why other spin bowlers have been included in England's Squad. When we have a perfectly able Spin Bowler in Monty Panasar.He was all the rage some time back but seems to have been dropped like a Hot Potato.These selectors have no idea.We Think it is shameful the way he's been treated.Get him back we say,what do you think?

Hello Bumble, It is a hard life is it not for commentators..... You want to go round some of the scoring Boxes in this country even in leafy Hampshire and see how hard it is. Luke Wright and Ravi Bopara are Musts for the English team. Collingwood great stalwart but time to give up. Yardy with his darts no thanks. Proven on these wickets dibbly dobbly bowling is the way to go nothing with pace, Yardy is not the man didn;t think treadwell was either but he has had a go. Wright as an opener I agree or Morgan (shame he;s Irish really). England cannot be written off and nothing would give me greater pleasure than 20/20 champions One day Champions ,Ashes holders.Would make Ned Kelly and his mob in the southern hemisphere sit up and beg (Lovely to watch the Aussies Squirm).
