    Amjad Khan and Steve Harmison

    Amjad Khan, born in Denmark, has made his test debut, representing England, in the extremely soporific test at Trinidad.

    Watching him bowl, I got the feeling though that he generally makes Steve Harmison look like one of these accuracy-personified metronomes: (Sir) Alec Bedser, Brian Statham, Curtly Ambrose, Glenn McGrath, Joel Garner, Richard Hadlee, or Shaun Pollock!

    Matt Prior must be wondering why he bothered to get back after his kid was born. In fact yesterday, Pietersen (I think) stood at leg slip. Given the lack of bounce in the wicket, I really felt he was there as additional cover for Prior, rather than as a catcher. England should have taken permission from the umpires so that Prior could hand over his left glove to Pietersen in the hope that that between them, they'd have stopped lots of few byes and wides. In fact, having Matt Prior as keeper when Amjad Khan is bowling is enough justification for England getting the long-stop fielder back in vogue. A couple of weeks ago, Martin Johnson, in "The Times", described Matt Prior's keeping ability awesomely
    Matthew Prior has improved quite a bit since he came into Test cricket with a catching technique apparently honed by playing the cymbals in a brass band, so we can probably rule out the possibility that he was merely celebrating the fact that the ball had somehow managed to remain inside his gloves.
