That didn't concern me as much as his serious struggling against Boje. That
was distinctly worrying.

Define "tidy".
If it's by traditional standards then it's not going to happen. This is Bad
Hands Brad.
If it's by contempory standards then it's still pretty doubtful.

Clang's averages for his last 6, 10 & 16 innings are; 16.5, 25.4 & 24.9

His average is now 50.8, down from 55.3 six*** innings ago.

Yes his batting is a problem at the moment but it's his keeping that seems
to have picked up this year and I believe is enough to keep his spot for
now, I can't believe his batting will stay like it is and without Roy he
wouldn't be in the spot light runs wise and if he continues to avg above
that 25-30 mark for now he's still as good as any keeper.

Funny you say that as I wasn't going to say anything about his keeping after
so many people think he should take Gilly's spot in tests once gone, but my
god is keeping all about runs now? Cause as you know he's not up to it for
Test keeping.

Probably not. Has anyone?

I know he's been seen behind the stumps, but it's drawing quite a long
bow to call what he does there "keeping".

Cheers,

Mike

So Giles will become useful after all during the next Ashes?

Quite possibly. But that's assuming Ingerlund don't change their selection
policy and start picking spinners.

Chance would be a fine thing. We haven't got any.

Speaking of Trashley, I'm mining my way through Gideon Haigh's 2005 Ashes
book and doesn't he have some nuggets of sledges against his Grauniard
collegue? Commentating on Warne's bamboozling of the pommy batters with his
slider; "England have treated it here like a Martian Death Ray. They should
know something about slow bowlers who making it go straight. They do have
Ashley Giles." [s***]
