Harmy....hmmm..he seems to have a consistency issue for England that disappears when playing for Durham, but then again do we ever select the team based on County cricket? If we did it would actually look different.


Richradson is the "best kept secret in county cricket" according to some. He was a state secret at Warwickshire. Do you know Roger Newman by the way?

Oh well, He discovered people like Troiughton. Wagg and Mark Wagh - also helped Andy Flower get his first job in coaching,Great bloke He shares your view on Kabir.

If you have time, what do you think of Flowers appointment by the way. To ordinary fans its hard to see why a bloke with no coaching experience gets th top job after losing to the 8th ranked team in the world?.

Wow he is fit and strong. I like the training he does. I don't think our bowlers could do half the stuff he does. Great to see his style of bowling.

I can see why our bowlers get injured when you see some of his training. Harmison, Sidebottom and Khan carry fat around the stomach area. Without strong stomach muscles to support their backs and strong quadriceps to support their knees the problems will continue. From what I have seen England's fitness training seems very basic and they don't seem very supple either.

It is bloody silly that they don't have the conditioning coming into international cricket. The amount of bowling they do at domestic level requires a huge amount of fitness, so the conditioning to keep a professional quick bowler toned should already be in place.

That said quite how the England fitness and conditioning staff/sports scientists can't figure that out is a disgrace.

Happy to discuss cricket!

I am very pleased for Napes. He and I worked really hard on his bowling over 3 years at a time when others were suggesting he had lost it or was never going to fulfil his promise. So I am proud personally he's come through.

Addtionally, Maurice Chambers has evolved beautifully (as we saw recently against WI at Chelmsford taking 4 wickets) into a serious contender for an international opportunity within the next 12-18 months.

It takes time for bowlers to come through and the work you do in Year one only starts to bear fruit a year or so later. With Napier, Chambers, Jahid Ahmed and Meryvn Westfield the 3 years I hope are not wasted.

We'll see over the next year or so if those guys can make the grade.

What's the chances of Atul getting a game in the IPL mate?

Has he recovered from his injury?

From The Times
on Liam Plunkett

Jon Lewis, the Durham batting coach, paid tribute to the technical work that Plunkett has been putting in to improve his action. “Liam's getting his left arm in a little tighter so that he's less open-chested now,” Lewis said. “That's helped improve his control. He's bowled well in the last couple of weeks, having had a good game for England Lions against West Indies.”

So it looks as if he is going back to his original action. Has taken 16 wickets at 21.43.

Surely Tremlett would be ahead of Richardson and Finn in the pecking order?

I think it is time for Broad to take the new ball in all forms of the game. There was an experiment in the West Indies for Flintoff to take the new ball but he is better first change.

Flintoff
649.3 overs 54 wickets at 35.22 econ 2.92 s/r 72.1 - new ball
927.0 overs 94 wickets at 29.11 econ 2.95 s/r 59.1 - first change

It looks as if Anderson and Broad are now the first choice opening pair. In this interview Broad talks about how he's enjoying having the new ball and the understanding that is developing between him and Anderson.

I think his average will go down much quicker with it.
I like the way he says that he always gets the new ball with Leics and Notts

http://www.cricketarchive.com/Archiv...32/132285.html - no
http://www.cricketarchive.com/Archiv...32/132289.html - no
http://www.cricketarchive.com/Archiv...32/132352.html - no
http://www.cricketarchive.com/Archiv...04/204258.html - yes, probably because Sidebottom and Shreck were not playing.
