England v Sarwan and Chanderpaul this aft
Anyone any thoughts? I was pleased to hear Strauss outspoken on Bell yesterday, seems the nanny state is behind us. Hope Bopara does the business, I'm not a fan of his promotion by Gooch to early in his career, but he's clearly a talented chap. I'd still rather have seen Bertie Cherry Cheeks Key on the plane from NZ though.
Otherwise, the human foetus behind the timbers is a huge worry, the poor chap is clueless against anything nippy. Hopefully he'll be in to feast on the Ryan Hinds/Brendan Nash buffet. Swann half fit and Harmison half arsed are the other posers. Though I on't think either Khan or Rashid are there yet...
As a warm up for the match, here's Rudi Koertzen and Aleem Dar's Test Match Umpiring Training Vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aBAMDCv5c9A
