Samit Patel > Graeme Swann
Patel is a part-time bowler in first-class cricket
I don't like Graeme Swann
although whether Swann is anywhere near test class as a bowler or a batsman is extremely debatable. I'm glad they havn't rushed Rashid into the squad; a debut series in India isn't the best idea for a young spinner even if it didn't seem to do Panesar any harm. I also think bringing Proir back is a sensible move.
looks like a future Test cricketer, Graeme Swann looks nothing like one, I understand the selection, but disagree with it, is that ok?
He spin bowling is pretty innocuous at first class level though and would be even more so at Test level especially against India.
has the one day squad been announced yet?
it has, hasn't it.
but it'll be the same squad as for the South African series
I'm now switching officially to Nottinghamshire from Leicestershire, is that ok with everyone?
Had trouble learning Afikaans, have you?
to be fair, we're gradually blooding the local younglings, but yeah, Kolpaks R Us are bereft of any cricketers I care about, bar Nixo obvs.
I fucking hate Notts.
