There are SO many bowlers who are there or thereabouts without being quite good enough:

Lewis
Mahmood
Anderson
Plunkett
Tremlett (had a bad season)

Then there's S.Jones who may be fit for the last 2 Tests.
Can't see any bowler breaking into the squad from nowhere.

Saw Jones in a local round the corner from my house, had a driver and a few mates, drinking seriously large quantities of Magners...Doubt he'll be fit.

Correct.

I guess him playing for Northants helps though .

I'm going to the 4th day of the 4th test.

I went to the 4th day of the 5th test last year too!

EDIT: Anyone got a video of his "super" wicket today? I don't have Sky unfortunately.

Cannot believe the ECB were so stupid. This summer was absolutely crucial for cricket IMO, they could have built on last year and it would have taken away some interest from the WC, as it is, the WC got ALL of the coverage and the cricket came up very very much 2nd best.

I guess I could watch it on Five but I forgot today and it would also "justify" the ECBs decision which I can't do.

You Tube of the Pakistan 2nd Innings

Monty`s Wonder Wicket is about 2:45 in, stunning bowling to Khan..one of the best players of spin.

I doubt we will see Giles play as the lone spinner again. I reckon Dalrymple is the future as all rounder.

I think it is not just the ECB who are to blame, the terrestrial broadcasters all put in low bids as they find it hard to schedule and can't guarentee viewers. It is a shame that some sort of shared agreement couldn't be reached. I think at least the Ashes series should be protected like the WC finals and other major sporting activities.

I actually think that the BBC should use their digital channels to play more cricket (and other sports). They have nothing on during the day and I suspect it could be done relatively cheaply.

Also the ECB they have encouraged a lot of people to come to the grounds. Meaning that almost every day has had a good crowd.

The reason they have nothing on is there's no space on freeview!

In what sense, I'm intrigued. They have stuff on in the evening but not during the day - so presumably the capacity is there to do it and the free air time is there.

Nah, there'll be some channels that only broadcast up to 7pm and the BBC ones take this space when they start broadcasting at that time.

But the BBC owns a whole multiplex as far as I understand. So it can only be other BBC channels that are replacing them. Not that I have any idea but CBBC etc. are not on during the day, so I think it must be possible. I'm going to hazard a guess and say that as people have got used to the BBC having no sport they thought it would be less hassle to deal with the criticism about not having cricket than it would be to put up with people saying that they were spending money on things they can't watch (i.e. need a Freeview box to watch the digital channels).

Actually CBBC and Cbeebies are on till 7, forgot about them, so presumably BBC 3 and 4 take over from this.

EDIT: Cricket is wokring for me now!
