Broad is heading towards Ashington with a shovel as we speak.

Bad day at the office today. Guess this is going to happen to a youngster thrown into one day international cricket.

Hope there's no knee-jerk reaction. Quite like the look of Anderson, Plunkett, Broad and Monty for the ODI team - especially if we can add Flintoff on top. That leaves room for 5 specialist batsmen and no bits and pieces players.

Let's back these guys through the difficult times like today. I'm convinced the talent is there if they can be nurtured and given experience.

I agree LUHG. I don't think anyone will be critical of Broad. He can't be brilliant every match at this stage in his career.

I'm not unhappy with sticking with Broad, Anderson, Plunkett & Monty, with Flintoff to return to the side and Sidebottom in reserve.

It's the batting that's causing problems at the moment.

Have you not watched the last to ODI bowling performances? The bowling is a huge concern.

It's always one or the other and usually both. Fielding's not too great either.

This is getting like "what have the Romans ever done for us" isn't it? What a shower of turd. Still, there is some potential in the young bowlers and the attack's balance looks hugely better with Flintoff in, even if he comes in for a bowler. I'm not sure about sticking with Monty given that his game is one dimensional and that he hasn't even looked that good in that dimension. Still, he's probably just about better than the alternatives.

You're spot on LUHG - Anderson, Plunkett, Broady and Monty seem to be the right balance in this team. But they need something to ball it - i.e. the batsman need something to ball at. Right now the batsman have been all over the shop - especially up the top. Once the bats do well the bowlers will follow - lets hope.

Well if Broad decides to leave Leics he won't be short of offers. Notts, Warwickshire, Surrey, Lancs and Hampshire all want to speak to him. Not sure why Lancs want to since we already have more pace bowlers than we need. Even when Cork and Chapple retire we still have quite a lot of strength in depth.

He's being interviewed on Sky Sports at the moment. After the game the ECB are whisking back to London so that he can make training tomorrow at 9 am. Sadly for Stuart he's not as important as KP and he's been driven not flown!

He could do with a few more scoring shots if he is to make it as a batsman at ODI level IMHO.

Warwickshire have made a formal approach for Sussex's former Pakistan leg-spinner Mushtaq Ahmed.

Warwickshire have also opened contract talks with England fast bowler Stuart Broad who has yet to decide whether to accept Leicestershire's offer of a new contract or move counties.

I thought someone said he was already signed by Notts?

Warwickshire's letter of approach to Sussex for Mushy has gone missing in the post.

Notts havent signed Broad and cant yet under the regulations. But the very, very strong word is that he has agreed to go there already.

In the dim and distant past I seem to remember there being transfer restrictions between the counties. IIRC a county could only sign a certain amount of category A players over a certain period (2 every 3 years?). This basically stopped the test hosting counties hoovering up the talent.

I presume these regulations disappeared with either advancements in European employment law or the two tier system and its now a free for all for counties like Warwickshire to flex their finanical might?
