Sickness And Fitness Attack Strikes England Team
As if the beating yesterday wasn't enough for the England fan to take, it now has come to light that England may be a couple of bowlers light for the first ODI against India.
Ryan Sidebottom has an Achilles problem and Stuart Broad has a bad knee. Ryan is definitely out (such a shame, NWG is truly upset - sob), but Broad faces a fitness test tomorrow.
If he fails, England are in serious trouble.
This brings Nightwatchgirl to her most important sentence of her entire blogging career: The return of Matthew Hoggard. OK, so he's not technically in the England team at the moment, never mind the ODI squad, but (and it's a big but) he could be their saviour.
So, to Peter Moores, to Kevin Pietersen: pick Hoggard and save the series.
It's a risk, but he won't let you down.
