There is no doubt that Ramps is greatly talented but why are England resorting to using him as an opener. When Ramps was batting at no. 6 people were complaining he was left sheparding the tail, well isn't this the role he plays best?
I think Ramps should be in the team but not as an opener. England have plenty of talent in that area (Steve James etc.) so why play a good player out of position. Why not put Hussain in? He's there after the first over when Ramps fails anyway.
Dropping Ramps isn't the answer, he's one of the best players we have, I would even make him captain. He hasn't done himself true on the international scene but we who in the currant England team has consistantly, only a few of them, this is his last chance, but at least give him that.
Mark Ramprakash is arguably the greatest English batsman of his generation, but he is also ... more
an enigma. This title covers the various aspects of his cricket career - from the hot-headed cricketing prodigy who made his Test debut for England at the age of 21 to finally being cast aside by his country in 2002.
