England have a seriously good young spinner and he can bat a bit too. He's called Danny Briggs and is currently playing for England Lions but IMO deserves a place in the Test squad.atb Tim
We`re not as good as we think we are..............

IMO Pakistan have taken a leaf from the Australian selection book In as much as there Is no such thing as automatic selection, you do not become a cricketing legend until you have retired and your record speaks for Itself, a hungry fighter fights hardest...lots of little nuggets of wisdom which the english hierarchy seem to Ignore...in light of recent events ...Bob Woolmer dying under strange circumstances, match fixing being Investigated and proved...PCB have shaken up the system for the good of the game...I am not suggesting that we follow a similar route, though would suggest a shake up and remove some dead wood....And not just on the field
Just a very bad day at the office. Maybe getting complacent. Maybe they just bottled it. Whatever it was I am sure they will bounce back.

Should he look back far enough i`m sure he could come up with a tenuous connection to a far distant relative....Or maybe hampshire have some trade agreement with Pakistan...He could Kolpak!
