    Think whoever has Flower in their draft teams should have to replace him with Giles

    2 main coaches, batting coach, bowling coach. lot of coaching ruins players.
    "If one hit the ball in an unexpected direction on the on side, intentionally or otherwise, one apologized to the bowler. The opposing captain never, by any chance, put a fieldsman there; he expected you to drive on the off side like a gentleman."

    Flower should be fired for how he handled the KP fiasco and for not picking Panesar in Dubai or Ahmedabad.

    You can make a mistake once and that's fine, but make the same mistake again, you're stupid and you're a fool

    Tbf, I don't think the pitch in Dubai turned a millimeter.

    It would have been a great injustice to Tremlett, who had been England best bowler over the period of his 7 tests he'd played in 10/11.
