If the French noblesse had been capable of playing cricket with their peasants, their chateaux would never have been burnt. - G M Trevelyan
But if we don't tinker, fidget, and fart around with the side, how will they ever develop the characteristic inconsistency of an England squad? Eh? EH!?!?My word of the day is "zbiekmxk", which is Polish for "chop and fucking change, you hear me?"
In fairness to the selectors, they've made it pretty clear this is a selection for one match only.If, as I expect, the Sarf Efrikans give us a good hiding (England 150 and 250; SA 400 & 1-0 or thereabouts)I would expect changes for the next one. My prediction for the number of runs Mark Ramprakash will score in the series: four (a streaky edge past the stumps following a first-ball duck in the first innings). And of course Freddie will do his ankle bowling his third over from the Kirkstall Lane end...And why oh why is no one telling the groundsmen to produce spinners' wickets? Monty and Swanny are our only hope (our batsmen won't score enough to let us pick Rashid, alas).
