To further this arguement, why the hell is Tuffnell not on the tour?!
Four off spinners in the squad,(Croft, Such, Ramprakash and Hick), is way
over the top. Not one person in the squad can turn the ball away from the
right-hander, which diminishes the potency of a double spin attack.
With Salisbury still woefully short of having an  effective action, or
indeed temperament, Tuffnell is the only contender.

On the same note, why did Australia make Gillespie 12th man...Adelaide
is his damn home ground...only an optimist would think Colin Miller is
Test material...excellent Shield cricketer, but...big deal.

sounds like a peace treaty has been signed whereupon both sides
are obligated to keep their most potent weapons away from the field
of battle.

why didn`t the poms pick TUDOR for the adelaide test?he really looked a good
prospect in the last test match,i suppose you can expect that from a
very,very, boring management who is following the old traditional way of
english cricket,a lack of any inspired selections in their teams,they will
allways be too conservative with their teams selections and management.

Gooch doesn't like his approach to the game.

Well Ramprakash & Hick are hardly test level spinners. I mean Ponting, Taylor
and Healy can bowl leggies, does that mean we shouldn't have McGill or Warne in
the team?

Yeah, but who is there in England who turns the ball the other way and is
considered likely to do well at test level ?

Yep, but Tuffers is considered to be a rebel and is said to cause trouble, it
doesn't matter how good he is if he doesn't fit in .....
