How to pick an England team

We wrote about how to set about the task of picking an England team for Cricinfo. We were meant to do the Twitter thing, but thanks to our unrivalled ability to not really know what’s happening from one week to the next, we got it wrong.

Cricinfo were very nice about it. We suspect they pity us.

  1. Excellent article, top job.

    More importantly, well done everyone for not mentioning “it”. If we continue to not mention “it”, “it” might go away. I know that the temptation to mention “it” is there, but believe me, in the long run it will be better for everyone if we carry on as if “it” never happened.

      Funnily enough, we’ve just mentioned not mentioning “it” in another article which will appear somewhere sometime – possibly here if no-one else wants it.

  2. Leadenfoot McClean-Bowled sounds like a top guy. I plan to write a short story with him playing a pivotal role in some capacity. He also happens to be the son of a divorce attorney. This may or may not be relevant to the chain of events that led him to Thailand.

    • Didn’t Leadenfoot McLean-Bowled open the batting with Laurence Elderbrook back in the day, when Laurence was given the opening bat gig by virtue of his pristine whites.

      Laurence might be the only opener in history to have ended up with a lower average than Leadenfoot.

  3. On the important subject of surnames, this seems like pretty major news;

    • Looks a lot like Jim. Only hairier.

    • He and his uncle would make a formidable team.

      I don’t think he’s the answer to England’s problems though. As we saw over the winter, it only takes a minute for chaos to befall the England set-up. They need divine intervention if Kevin must be missing, an angel or some higher being. More than a woman or a man at least.
