    Checking back, the news sources (e.g. 4BR last week) say that they "had played an unregistered player". There have certainly been a few bands at the areas in the last couple of years that have had...

    David, a band with a famously big youth scheme (you'll know who I mean) a few miles down the road made identical approaches to their local schools about 15 years ago, meeting with exactly the same...

    Horn is definitely a more natural change of mouthpiece for a cornet player. There's something of a break point in the mouthpiece spectrum between horn and baritone; I tend to think of horn...

    He's also done well against India and Sri Lanka. This is the first noticeable blip in his test career.

    I set you up for that one...

    Not a good candidate for other reasons, as discussed at length here above and generally all over the place. But kudos for getting back to the topic. We'd all love a...

    Ballance shouldn't be concerned about his place - he's done poorly in this series, but it was only a few weeks ago that he put together successive innings in the Caribbean of 122, 77 and 81*. Given...

    So that test all turned out fine. Cook all of a sudden looking happier at the crease, and who needs Pietersen to bish-bash-bosh when you have an excitingly new young talent in Ben Stokes already...

    Happens every year. Sometimes more join than leave; sometimes it's the other way round. Some stick around for long periods, others dip their toes then go elsewhere.

    I'll be out with the Tartan Massif. Two bass trombones this year, oh dear...

    The problem England are having with Cook reminds me of the problem Australia had with Mark Taylor in the late 90s - with the definite differences that the Australian team of that period were...

    Trying not to be tripped up by my defective irony filter again here... So I'll go for the safe reply option...

    Well, he can't displace any of the three in front of him on either short-term or long-term batting averages... Neither form nor class are on his side here. And as I keep banging on, at nearly 35,...

    Gary Ballance isn't included in that list - it has a minimum cut-off of 20 innings, and he's played 19 so far. But he would top it as things currently stand.

    So 2 of the 3 players (as DS2014...

    Complete the project while biting my tongue. Then do what I could to make sure that I wasn't asked to work with them again. That's interpreting "didn't like" as "have a personality clash with"...
