    KP told he's never gonna play for England again, is this some kind of sick joke

    Not even hired a new coach yet, and it's already been decided. Not to mention how much the ECB strung him on, saying they'd consider him if dropped IPL and played counties and made runs, then saying he won't play after he made 326 not out

    As if I didn't like England and the ECB enough as it was....

    Lost all respect for the ECB now and the only English player I enjoy watching bat and want to make a decent innings when he's playing

    Appalled by the decision from Strauss. Seems like personal issues got in the way of professional decision making. Can't wait for Piers Morgan to get wind of this....

    Absolutely ridiculous this, reflects horribly on the ECB that the decision won't even be made by the new coach

    I thought the BCCI and Indian cricket was the biggest joke but apparently not :joy:

    It's unlikely that Dizzy will want any part of the set up given that they have already told KP he is out, said that Cook will continue as captain and Root was appointed VC.

    Not any of these decisions are necessary bad ones but a coach should have a say in all of them.

    It'll be really hilarious if England somehow manage to win the Ashes, especially after a lot of people have written off their chances. :lol:

    There should be some interest in a fantasy league, there was a forum fantasy cricket league for the world cup on the old forum.

    Quite a number of the supposed experts criticizing England right now did also suggest a comprehensive victory over Australia in the 13/14 Ashes, with a fair few considering Australia to be in their worst state for quite a long time. Not that much has changed in their side since then but a number of them have been excellent form, at least in the shorter formats. Not expecting England to turn things around quite like that, but making a few changes and backing the right people can make a huge difference; unfortunately there isn't much faith in England being able to do that.

    What an awful start for England against New Zealand - 30/4 so far. :/

    We are an absolute shambles

    also - "So apparently that batting change wasn't a deliberate move by England - Moeen Ali was batting in the nets and couldn't get his kit on in time to make it out there" :joy:

    Stokes and Root have played well so far.

    Root gets his 50, really good innings so far.

    @Handy Andy Did you see the cameraman's fall before play restarted? :D
