Inzy to be charged with bringing the game into disrepute.

What about Darell Hair, eh? If the ICC have any bottle they'd throw him off the elite panel.

So now Hair had offered to resign in return for secret payment of over a quarter of a million pounds?!

Monty Panadol will be ridiculed in Australia just like Phil Tufnell was. He will want to take a shitload of wickets.

And about 'Hair Hitler'. Everything was fine until he wrote to the ICC saying 'pay me $660,000 (US$500,000) to quit. Discgrace. The emails were in todays Herald Sun.

Well, Jamie Dalrymple has gone from the (pseudo) hero of the Sri Lanka series to looking absolute pants against Pakistan.

If England are going to do anything in the World Cup next year they're going to have to improve greatly.

England in the last few years have looked a solid test outfit... one of the top three in the world.. but there one-day form has been inconsistent... and miserable since the tour of india.
id say they have a good chance at the ashes....but almost no shot at the world cup....

Graham Onions now into the side. Great name (and he plays in the same Durham team as Phil Mustard, you really can't make this stuff up) but apparently his Pro40 form is vastly inferior to his Championship form.

I honestly don't see why they don't bring in Panesar. OK, they're worried about the confidence thing, but he's a fairly economical bowler which is important in ODIs. And there's really no reason why Chris Tremlett isn't being given another go.

That's Darren Gough's career gone too, I think. Goodbye Dazzler.

Hmm Ashley Giles is apparently in line for selection for the Champions Trophy, and if he gets through that it will be interesting to see if gets into an XI with Monty.

Personally I'd leave him off. England should more or less use their Pakistan line-up with Flintoff replacing Mahmood and playing the four bowlers, with Collingwood/Pietersen adding a few overs here and there.

Either that or drop Trescothick for Giles or Mahmood or even James Anderson (but he's not had much cricket) and open with Cook and Strauss, but I doubt they'll ever do that.

On the Indian pitches it wouldn't hurt to have the extra spinner, that seemed to be a problem when England got hammered over there earlier this year. Although neither can contribute much with the bat or in the field, so that would probably mean only one of em' playing, I would definetely go with Giles, he had some success in India in the ODI series in 2001/02 and is a much better bat than Monty...

England squad for Ashes tour: A Flintoff (captain, Lancashire, 62 Tests), A Strauss (Middlesex, 31 Tests), M Trescothick (Somerset, 76 Tests), A Cook (Essex, 9 Tests), K Pietersen (Hampshire, 18 Tests), I Bell (Warwickshire, 18 Tests), P Collingwood (Durham, 15 Tests), C Read (Nottinghamshire, 13 Tests), S Mahmood (Lancashire, 5 Tests), S Harmison (Durham, 45 Tests), M Hoggard (Yorkshire, 58 Tests), M Panesar (Northants, 10 Tests), G Jones (Kent, 31 Tests), A Giles (Warwickshire, 52 Tests), J Anderson (Lancashire, 13 Tests), L Plunkett (Durham, 6 Tests).

England squad for Champions Trophy: A Flintoff (captain, Lancashire), J Anderson (Lancashire), I Bell (Warwickshire), R Clarke (Surrey), P Collingwood (Durham), J Dalrymple (Middlesex), S Harmison (Durham), E Joyce (Middlesex), S Mahmood (Lancashire), J Lewis (Gloucestershire), K Pietersen (Hampshire), C Read (Nottinghamshire), A Strauss (Middlesex), M Yardy (Sussex).

Rather predictable, I guess. Anderson could play ahead of Mahmood if he's fit enough but I'll still take Monty over Giles (although a second spinner in Sydney may have been useful). Would have preferred Strauss as captain; simply because I think Flintoff's big guts performances always bring about a tendency to overbowl himself. Glad the selectors didn't listen to the Mark Ramprakash lot either.

Is Simon Jones injured? he did very well when Australia were in England last year.
I think Vaughan's absence should be nullified by Cook....

Trescothick
Cook
Strauss
Bell
Pietersen
Flintoff
Jones
Giles
Hoggard
Harmison
Anderson

Anderson is looking like the only weak link, hopefully Jones can improve the quality of his keeping as he is a more than useful bat. I guess one of the 3 left handed openers will have to adjust to a new position in the line-up.
