Well, finally England has the number one spot on the test rankings. I think England will be there for a while. The team looks good and has a good balance.
A good opening pair in Strauss and Cook. A solid number 3 incase you loose the openers early. Very good stroke makers in Pieterson, Bell and Morgan.
A wicket keeper in prior that can genuinely bat with an average in the 40s (and 6 test hundreds). Also, a very good bowling attack to choose between Bresnan, Anderson, Finn, Broad, Tremlett and Swann.
I also think there is a good mix of ages and experience to continue the success going. So, I see England on top for a while. My only concern is the lack of a quality second spinner for when Swann is injured or when they need to play a second spinner.
Are you talking about cricket, which has got to be the most boring game in the world?
I mean, who cares.
Ohhh IzzyM - I used to have so much respect for you and then you go and say something like that!
OK so I admit that Test cricket can be boring, as can some of the one day games - but T20 is one of the most exciting games I've watched - I'm a Football, Soccer, Rugby, Hockey fan - and feel I am objective - I feel that if the US really took an interest it would be the most popular sport in the world - heck they even have cheer leaders!!!
SimeyC - Cannot agree more. T20 is the best way to promote the game. Would be nice to see other countries join in.
IzzyM - Have a look at some T20 stuff. You will like it. The 5 day game could be boring, unless you fully understand the technical stuff. There is a lot to learn googly, Doosra, Carrom ball, In swing, Reverse swing, etc. To you it is a one guy throwing the ball at another guy. If you understand the techniques of bowling, every delivery is different.
Anyway, I won't bore you with it. I use to play the game when I was younger and then you really get into it because you have to learn all the technical stuff. Just a shame, I do not have time to watch 5 full days of cricket. So, have to rely on highlights.
