Cor Blimey

So the day has finally come. NWG was avidly waiting for the big news on the T20 team, and wasn't it an interesting pick?

Paul Collingwood as captain (NWG likes).

James Foster in for Matt Prior (woo).

Graham Napier (very sensible choice).

Eoin Morgan (ok, so he's Irish, but he's good).

But Rob Key? (boo)

And, the most surprising of all? None other than Ryan 'I'm the moodiest man in history' Sidebottom.

NWG is officially starting a petition today for those wishing to express concern for Sidebottom's inclusion.

Sign up today. NWG needs you.

Test Squad Announced. Gulp.

Well, who'd have thought it?

Matthew Hoggard left out. Again.

Steve Harmison. Out.

Michael Vaughan. Out.

Ian Bell. Out.

Owais Shah. Out.

This massacre of the England team could either be a stroke of brilliance, or will sign Flower's resignation papers before his first cheque has even had a chance to dry.

Graham Onions. In.

Tim Bresnan. In.

Ravi Bopara. In.

NWG feels especially sorry for Shah. NWG sees how hard he tries, yet Bopara, although reliable, seems to only get a good score when he's run someone out (normally a captain).

NWG has a bad feeling about this.
