Alan Igglesden was once picked as "England's 15th choice seamer", but presumably we can find a 16th choice opening batsman, and a 17th to go in with them.

Kent maybe about to provide England's 4th choice wicketkeeper

I've just finished sitting through the entire TMS broadcast on BBC Sounds for the last day of the last test (I couldn't face listening to it overnight), and it cuts off four overs from the end !!

It crossed my mind this afternoon, whilst deep in conversation with my good pal Penelope, that when I shuffle off this mortal coil I might raffle the burnt offering amongst members of the England cricket team.
Bach without a doubt.

Dear god. I listened to this overnight and went out for a ride when we were looking pretty good for a nail-biting finish at 68-1. Came back, turned on the news and we've lost by 146 runs. Rather glad I went out. That's pathetic after such an encouraging start.

Me too!
Result not a total shock, but still an unexpected slump.

Still, whitewash avoided! :P

Cricinfo tells me that England U19 are about to play Canada U19.  More trouble ahead?
