Just a thought

England, in tests and particularly one day cricket, have a huge problem with slip catching.

They also have a problem with at least one of the batting positions where they would ideally like some one who could bowl.

Do we know anyone who can catch flies at slip, as well as bat and bowl to high standards, who could thus potentially solve all these problems at once?

No idea, but maybe Pete and Publunch could shed some light

Much as I always love players from my teams - Bears and the Tigers - to be capped I am almost reluctant to put forward Mr Chopras name! (OK he's not a bowler, but an opener is also going to be needed!).

Don't think Chopra has done enough yet, he needs a higher domestic average for me to be elevated to that status, he is definitely improving though and in a year or two maybe.

I think Chopra is a good call. Root is very young - maybe too young. Carberry is a bit too old, so the time is right for Chopra who's average is improving year by yea.

It's Peter Trego isn't it?

Re: Chopra

Its not always about the average with England selection.

Its often about conversion of 30s to 50s to 100s to big 100s!

That's what Trott does so well!
