Not only do I disagree I insist he is now made captain and given a medal of some kind.

Maybe if we retain the Ashes this winter by actually winning the series rather than drawing it they will all be knighted.

They're aren't that many MBE winners left though are there?

Strauss, KP, Bell, and Collingwood (can't believe he got one for playing 1 test)

Colly proved his worth last summer though.

Trott, Prior, Swann, Broad, Finn - unscarred by the humiliating defeat in 2006/7.

I agree, we should leave out a couple of players scarred from 2006/7, although only two in particular for your benefit. Do you want to guess who they are?

That's not the deal though, is it? Broad also contributed to getting Pakistan out cheaply twice.
