Dalrymple: Cricinfo gave him an 8 for the one day series against the Lankans. He's a useful off-spinner and a pretty decent bat as well. He just got trapped leg before for 1 off 5 balls for England A against Pakistan though.

Jamie Dalrymple
The one player to take his opportunity with both hands and by the end of the series was already feeling like a one-day regular. It was his stylish and composed batting that really shone, as more senior players around him lost their wickets in a variety of styles. He showed the ability to nurdle singles and clear the boundary with equal measure. His bowling won't frighten the opposition, but he isn't afraid to give the ball a tweak and vary his pace intelligently and was about the only controlling option open to Andrew Strauss. Somehow he managed to concede less than five-an-over during the Headingley carnage. The World Cup beckons.

With all of their injures, Australia are looking mighty well, mighty!

Flintoff now out for three months. This could be dodgy indeed.

Still, it means Ian Bell's got a chance to try and show what he can do. The bowling now looks very, very thin though.

I guess another England Ashes 24 test losing streak had to start at some point

this Aussie summer sounds like a good starting point for me

I am 100000% sure Australia will win... last year England's win was a miracle. Steve Harmison hasn't performed as well since then and Andrew Flintoff is injured...Australia will be smarting from the loss and raring to go!

By the way, what's the word on Glenn McGrath for the Ashes?? Injured or returning?

you should never be that sure about anything in sports.

and Harmison performed very well yesterday. (6-19) and Flintoff should be fit for the ashes.


i've been very impressed with the England batting overall this summer, the bowling is the questionable area, but assuming Flintoff returns and if Harmison can bowl like he did against Pakistan yesterday...i still harbour some hope for England this ashes.

Yeah Harmison did play well yesterday, but it was a dodgy pitch.

I'm really impressed with Bell and in particular Cook so far, but facing a Pakistan attack missing the likes of Shoaib and Rana isn't quite the same as facing Warne and Lee et al.

I think England do have a bigger chance than most suggest though. We'll see.

When did he get injured? He's been off to support his wife while she fought cancer (which is in remission now, I believe ), and will reportedly be back for this coming season.

And dont everyone bet on us walking over England. We've lost some shoe-in's in recent years. England's injuries dont really mean much with our hot and cold performances. Should be good though!

Is anyone following the Sri Lanka-South Africa match? Records are being smashed... 720/3 at tea today.

And the amazing thing is that the game will probably not end in a draw.

Draws.

I think it shouldn't be too long before we start having six day Tests.

Only a fool would back against Australia winning the Ashes. But at least the English crowd will make it feel like a home series (again).

England won by an innings today, that should make the Ashes series even more exciting to watch, if that was possible...

I'm backing Australia because it's my favorite team!

England were impressive, but don't forget that's a weakened Pakistan side there.

Trescothick better be looking over his shoulder at Ian Bell, though.
