Only saw exerpts from yesterday , pretty average bowling from England .

Always thought that the England bowling was the product of quirky weather conditions / pitches . Years on and very little evidence to contrary , so if the ball is swinging or the pitch is fizzing they perform well . Occasionally up pops a really good bowler , but none about at present with Freddie side lined ( and Freddie had to be used sparingly given the huge physical effort his bowling involved ) .

the bowling yesterday was a shambles, no idea how to bowl a yorker, they simply had no control, therefore impossible to set a field to, hense the ball flying to all parts

Anderson apart, that wasn't even what i would class a good county attack.

Bresnan takes average to a new extreme, what they see in the boy i will never know, a trier, a grafter, someone who bats - i just dont know, but clearly he doesn't have the pace or control to be an international bowler on international wickets.

Wright, again a trier and a useful addition to the side, as a bit part bowler in any form of the game not one of your 5 at this level.

Rashid, he may well mature into something reasonable, but i have seen nothing in the guys bowling to think he can make it. Really hope i'm wrong as he can clearly bat and we all know that a good leg spinner in a side gives a dimension England haven't had in a generation or more. However, he just doesn't appear (as a bowler) to be good enough.

Mahmood - where do you start, it seriously irks me i got injured 6-7 years ago if England are trying players of this ability. Despite nigh on 7 years of Young England, lions, A tours, he still cannot swing or seam a cricket ball, someone needs to explain that a slower ball is meant to be a surprise, not used 3 balls an over. I keep hearing David Lloyd describe him as a thinking cricketer - i think Bumble is magic, but i'm afraid that opinion puts him above "Both" in the blinkered blindly stakes.

Add to that a guy in charge who shouldn't be near the 20/20 side, let alone in charge it can only ever go one way.

Dont get me wrong i've not got a list of names who are international class. But if this is the best we have the doldrums awaits.
