Gilchrist's batt(er)ing

Unless there is another dramatic turnaround of events, Gilchrist has sealed the fate of the Ashes Urn. He has mauled the English bowlers into submission WWF style. He has the second fastest test cricket century against his name and the Barmy Army will soon have one-way flight tickets back to home. So much for England’s much hyped Ashes defense.

The absence of Vaughan, Trescothick and Simon Jones has been a factor in England’s poor showing but all said and done Australia has proved to be the better team. Very sadly, England’s exciting victory in the previous Ashes seems to have only been an aberration. Even more unfortunate is the fact that had the team selection not been so illogical England might still have been in with at least a glimmer of hope of winning one of cricket’s foremost contests. Looks like the selectors wanted it this way.

Illogical/stupid/amateurish - many labels could be applied to Fletcher's selection policies. Forget Vaughan and especially Trescothick.

The non-selection of Panesar in the first two tests was probably the single biggest reason for the impending whitewash.
