    What the media says about the NatWest final

    Comments and reports from various journalists, players etc. about Saturday's final.

    Jonathan Agnew, Chloe Saltau, Edward Craig, Mike Atherton, Angus Fraser, Vic Marks, Jim Maxwell, Christopher Martin-Jenkins, Stephen Brenkley, Derek Pringle, Mike Selvey, Tony Lawrence and Mark Nicholas have their say on how they viewed the game.

    David Hopps, on whether Jones' innings in the final has sealed him a #7 spot. Stephen Fay, on the lipsmacking array of quick bowlers who've strutted their wares this summer so far.

    Shane Warne, whose column came out before the final got underway, reckons that the first few overs in each innings will be crucial to how the teams feel before the Ashes gets underway. Given that Australia nearing 50 without loss in the seventh over while England were 33/5 in six, hindsight doesnt seem a very nice thing.

    Mike Atherton and Stephen Brenkley, on David Shepherd's retirement, after the three NatWest Challenge games.

    Scyld Berry points out that if McGrath's performances in his career, Ashes series, and especially the last year are anything to go byEngland are in a fair bit of trouble, especially Vaughan and Strauss.

    So should Kevin Pietersen be picked for the Ashes or not? Donald McRae and Mike Selvey see if they have the answers.

    Stephen Brenkley, on the top ten things to keep in mind during the Ashes.

    John Rawling rightly wonders about why England and Australia are playing three more one-day games.

    A wonderful picture: Glenn meets Roger.

    The blogosphere's take on the game:
