The Ashes Squad : an official response

Fred may be indisposed for a few days, however on hearing that Giles had been included and both Dalrymple and Clarke omitted, he said (and I quote directly) :

"lkiehvsqrgki;j3v qw;kjqv1sw.kj3 ev.kj3bvk;/3vqjnvqerbnverqkj/;neqvr".

"vr3eljknvrqe.jk ne3vrkj nv3rqkj nfvrq," he added, before signing off with a defiant "veqk.j nqejk vrqemn. vcqk,mj ckmj c/;l c".


  • The batting all rounder at 8 is an abysmally negative ploy at the best of times. Dalrymple would be a maybe when compared to Giles but I wouldn't trust Clarke with the ball against Australia Women, let alone the men.
    I say hang it all and bat Mahmood at 8 (or Harmison if Anderson plays) with Panesar in the side every time.
    Whilst I generally concur with a lot on this blog, Clarke is truly abject.

  • I agree that it is essentially a negative ploy, but it's a consequence of none of the bowlers (and probably the keeper too) being in any way reliable batsmen. Plus, they would bat at seven, with the keeper at eight.

    As for the 'Rymp, I defy anyone to try and convince me that he is not a better option than Giles as either a batsman, bowler or in the field.

  • Have to agree about Dalrymple.

    Plus he's posh, which goes a long way.

  • Clarke is a useless bowler, batter and fielder why would he even be considered? As bad as Collingwoods bowling is, at least he has some command of where the ball pitches.
