Review of The Lords Test by thedevilinme

Advantages: Good Indian side
Disadvantages: England getting old

Ordinarily, Cook would have gone by now but there is no logical successor. What he needs is to go back and get his confidence in County cricket but since the ECB brought in central contracts the only cricket the so called elite players play is at International level. Cook and Bell for that should go back to playing county cricket in between the tests to recover their confidence. by supercityfan

Are England over the Hill?
Review of Sydney Cricket Ground by thedevilinme

Advantages: Australia have improved
Disadvantages: England are crap

Whatever England had, itís gone, and so should Cook and Flower. Both are currently engineering each others downfall so the other can survive. Itís not going to be the same again and as good as England are in English conditions (well we should be) they are ... Read review

I think it is blatantly obvious that the best England players aren't selected. Aussies did not win the Ashes we handed them to em. They're still an ordinary team, who've had extra-ordinary luck. Yes - Flowers has got to go by attitude alone. His interview didn't persuade me he has the fight. If anything he reminded me of a corporate man thinking of his retirement. Top reviewing. by 1st2thebar
Spineless showing by England, agreed, though I also think the current Aussie side are more than useful and came into the series under-rated. I think Flower, as man in overall charge, should carry the can. Cook is talented enough, and still young enough, to make a comeback as a batsman. Whether he's a good enough captain is a different question. by torr

I'm afraid you may well be right, though I don't like some of the Aussies' non-playing tactics. As a matter of interest, are any of them non-Aussie-born? by Viborg

He's got an English mother - end of argument. He should play for England if he wants to. You can play for Ireland at most sports if you've got a great great grandparent (or at a pinch if you've got an Irish wolfhound). We let people with far less 'Englishness' represent us at other sports - I can't see any reason to exclude KP on the basis of growing up in SA. by koshkha
