First Ashley Giles, now Graham Swann.

You don't bowl with sunnies you fucking wankers.

England should be very concerned that we only fell 115 short of chasing a 500+ target.

You do realise that had we only been chasing 406 that it would have been the equal third highest fourth innings run chase of all time.

Not to be too whiny but England were practically aided by 3 umpiring blunders.

So what? We got the job done.

Australia are the number one ranked team in the world. I expected nothing less than a determined fightback.

yeah.

bangladesh just beat the west indies, they won their third test overall, their first overseas test series, and the first time they've ever won consecutive tests. given the windies team was deplorable, but still a good achievement.

KP ruled out of the series.

he's clearly struggled with that injury and comes as a shock but not a surprise. I thought he might miss a test or two but not the series. Presumably Bell will come in although I don't know what number he'll bat at.

Australia's batting line up looks stronger than Englands now i think for sure (discounting phil hughes). Vice versa with the bowling assuming flintoff stays fit.

But we already know he's a wanker...

How about droping Ravi Shitcunt altogether and give Darren Pattinson or whatever his name was another go...

How about they lift Onions up the order. He seems to make a decent batsman, well for Englands standards anyway.

^ underestimate hughes at your peril.

No-one would argue that South Africa have the best bowling attack in the world, and he score 400 against them in 3 tests.

He's in a pretty horrid run of form. He is smashing the ball, but look at his dismissals. An inside edge caught behind off an innocuous Flintoff ball. Caught off the glove down leg side while hooking. "Caught" at first slip off Flintoff".

He has more ability and talent than the entire England side, and he will come good

Difference between Bell and Hughes - Bell scored his runs against Bangladesh.

Hughes scored his against Steyn, Ntini, Morkel, Harris and Kallis
