So I've had a couple of days at home and now it's back to London for another salvo.

Bumble, can you please explain to me the thinking behind picking Broad for this test match. Broad has always been a fast bowler who gets wickets by being aggressive and due to his height being able to get steep bounce off a good length. The trouble is he`s no longer a fast bowler, he`s lost at least 10mph of pace. He`s like a heavyweight boxer who has lost the ability to punch.

Aren't India cheating by using a worn pitch for the second test? With 15 spinners in their side, it's a bit like using loaded dice. Surely there are standards set for test match pitches??

Surely, Bumble, we already have our Clark/Pujara in Alastair Cook. I think the time might be approaching when a change at the top will be needed. Andy Flower has done a fantastic job in getting England to No1 in the world. But since that, it has been a slippery slope....Little things like lax fielding, dropped catches, rash shots, inconsistent bowling seem to be creeping into the England performances now where as when Flower first took the reigns these lack lustre performances were not tollarated. Have things become just a bit to cosy between the management and the senior players?? As Ian Botham says...it seems almost impossible to get dropped from the team...
