    Time to press the panic button?

    Both of us here are pretty sure that Giles is too crappy to get into any decent Test side on merit. In fact, I suspect he's in the England side on some quota system. Andrew Miller wants Collingwood in the XI instead of the great all-rounder and has quite a few valid points too. Edgbaston, where the next test will be played, is incidentally Giles' home ground! Geoffrey Dean talks to Dave Houghton who is categorical that England are playing ten against Australia's 11.

    When everyone seems to be talking about strengthening the English batting line-up, the skipper has turned down on an offer for some valuable match practice which has been strongly rebuked by Boycott.

    Even the fixtures aren't in England's favour. Those who will play in the domestic games will be involved in Twenty20 and National League games rather than first-class games, not exactly the best preparation for a test match after your mustered 370 runs in both innings, 14 less than Australia managed in the second knock.

    1 sledge(s):

    It is common public/media behavior to lash out at the home team after yet another crushing defeat. But I still believe there is more to this test series than we all saw at Lords.
