So which pace bowler gets dropped??

 

Nice to see Jones back to full fitness.

Can't drop Flintoff because of his batting.

Can't drop Hoggard and Jones because of their swing

Can't drop Harmison because of his pace.

Gonna be a hard decision

 

 

Brought back the cricket threads to please gol :D

Hmm, we surely can't play 4 pace men and 2 spinners though?

 

Not exactly much experience with the spinners either.

How many spinners do India use?

93132[/snapback]

Isn't it still both Harbarjhan and Kumble?

 

I can just imagine Udal bowling to Sehwag on day one of a test match.

And me getting up and 4 in the morning or whenever to watch this "cricketing treat"

He kept very well in Pakistan.

 

If Giles is unfit I'd play that Panesar bloke, providing he does well in the warm-ups. Udal was nothing special in Pakistan. I think we should play one good spinner, not a good one and a substandard one for the sake of it.

 

I also wish that KP and Vaughan would work on their spin a bit more. I was at Trent Bridge when Vaughan bowled Tendulkar through the gate with a perfect off break, I'd love to see him do it again!

It will be inetersting to see who misses out and who plays. It'll be a risk because whilst the pitches will massively favour spinners, if the spinners we pick don't do the business we will have lost a top class pace bowler from our attack who may have done bette.

 

We really have to hope whichever spinners play do the business when called upon.

 

I suppose they could always use Vaughan as a second spinner allowing an extra bowler to play, but i don't know that he bowls enough or is rated enough for them to risk that?

I'll be interested to see how Panesar does. How many warm-up games are there?

 

Also hope some of the batsmen show a bit more patience in trying to build a score out there rather than going in (and quickly coming back) with the guns-blazing approach.

I was going to suggest using Vaughan as a second spinner. I like our pace bowlers too much to drop one. I presume it would be either Jones or Hoggard that doesn't play if we went with only three quickies.

Vaughan hardly bowls these days - something to do with his back I think. KP used to be a promising spinner.
