24 and a half (shouldn't be allowed I say:eek: )
Just over 30
Nearly 34 (goodbye Gilly )
Almost 36 and still spinning us mad
Nearly 29 and the symbol of masculinity
Just over 35 and a half
22 and a half (disgusting:bwadr: )

"Anyway, the policy of playing five front-line bowlers is designed to decrease the scoring potential of the opposition, so there are less runs to chase."

Having Hayden in there is good for England's morale. But maybe he really will get a big one in the last match, so drop him and put pressure on Katich as opener. Pietersen loves clobbering Shane Watson too, so that looks a good "all round" move.

I am an unabashed Flintoff fan. Any Englishman who can take off his shirt and twirl it around his head must be an Indian at heart.
I am also an unabashed Gilly fan.
May we have a great contest.

"...working-class figures such as Flintoff and Simon Jones..."
ANDREW FLINTOFF and the England cricket team are widely regarded as much better role models than David Beckham and the England football side.
Roll over Beckam. Dig these sixes and yorkers.
