    Bopara is brick.

    He's had more than a fair chance.

    And your comments about Pietersen's average are strange! That's what an AVERAGE is fella!! Big scores and small ones!! When he does have a good knock it usually changes the match.

    Lol!!! In 6 innings against India last season he scored:

    1, 201, 63, 29, 63 and 175.......pretty brick average of 88.6! Hahahahahahahahahahah

    Would you rather he scored exactly 50 every innings??? Ludicrous comments!

    To be fair, he's been pretty frigging awesome lately. Averaged nearly 100 in a test series against the supposedly best (or 2nd best?) test nation in the world.

    But yeah, nah, he ain't that good.

    India's tour of Australia has been horrific. Worst I can remember for many years. Clarke's batted well, but really, India haven't exactly done much to test him. Or Punter, who I saw also got a double century in Adelaide. It's a shame because I think India rolling over gives the Aussies a bit of impetus and might start them on a proper comeback trail. ;)

    India's tour of Oz has put our victories over them into context, take them away from the turning wickets of the subcontinent and they can't win. Likewise take us away from the swinging pitches of England and we can't win.

    Home advantage should always count for plenty in tests, of course, but England did win The Ashes in Australia, and India have drawn series in both SA and Australia..... putting it all down to spin and/or swing is, I think, an over-simplification.

    Load of rubbish, nothing to do with the bowling, they've done their job. It's the batsmen that are the problem, as it was considered to be even before the Indian series. Take out Trott and Cook, and we don't have any consistent outright batsmen

    If i was our bowlers i'd been feeling massively hard done by at the mo, batsmen are ruining the solid foundations they've been laying down for us

    We're never going to make it - seems every ball in a threat.

    It's like a five-day baseball game without the roids.

    Cricket - you either love it or you hate it. I can quite easily watch 5 days of test cricket, especially the Ashes, I was off work with a bad back injury during the 2005 Ashes and it was amazing to watch.

    Don't expect you to understand something which can last 5 days and still end up in a draw. :D

    Ties are quite common in cricket too. I know American sports don't really like those.
