Shane Warne Wins Prize For Intellect

Shane Warne has admitted that without Andrew Flintoff, England can't/won't/will be incapable of winning the Ashes this summer.

Wow.

England fans are well aware of the importance of Freddy to the team and to the prospects of England winning. This is not new. In fact, NWG would go as far to say that it was blooming obvious.

But let's not forget some other players who occasionally step up to the plate and deliver:

Kevin Pietersen - when he's not having a tantrum/forgetting how to hold the bat/being captain.
Ian Bell - when he remembers how to score runs.
Paul Collingwood - when he takes amazing catches/makes run outs.
Steve Harmison - when he aims for the wicketkeeper.
James Anderson - when the moon is in the right phase and mercury is behind Jupiter he can really bowl.
Andrew Strauss - when being captain isn't overwhelming him.
A wicketkeeper - whoever that may be.

Just had a thought on the till now random way in which England choose 'keepers.

Keeping and batting skills have nothing to do with it, they pick whoever Harmy can best aim at

So what you're saying Moses, is that England need a red bus standing behind the stumps. Sensible.

Moses @ Beer and Sport said...

You could get one of those quintessentially English red buses with Jimmy Page and that xfactor chick...

However, a better solution would be for Rob Key to take up keeping. He's roughly the size of a bus and can bat a bit.

The Nightwatchgirl said...

That's a great idea. Would Key be able to bend down though and adopt the wicketkeeping position?

Moses @ Beer and Sport said...

perhaps the wicketkeeping positino can bend around him

The Nightwatchgirl said...

It's England's only hope. Maybe they could build some kind of contraption that he could sit down on whilst keeping wicket.

Moses @ Beer and Sport said...

may I suggest a light rail to save him the indignation of walking between overs...

And maybe one of those hats that has straws in the side so he can keep himself hydrated with water (beer).
