It all went wrong with having a dodgy keeper! I think england should bring back Jones a good keeper and a good batsman!
England should definatly bring back Owais Shah - A top talent in my opinion!

I'm not sure about Jones. I thnk Prior was good, he was our third best batsman, average wise, and his keeping was solid. I do like Owais Shah though, I would have him instea of Bopara.

Bopra has had his chance and to be honest he failed miserably...maybe try him again in a few years.
The England attack has looked weak ever since we lost Simon Jones. We really a genuine fast bowler who can swing it aswell...Harmison just isnt consistant enough.

Yes I agree Bopara isn't ready for test cricket, maybe a few more years of county cricket will prepare him better. We definitely miss Simon Jones a lot and could do with a proper fast bowler. Harmison, is good, but not consistantly.

I don't think Broad is ready for international cricket at the moment either. He looked shaken and fragile when he got those two warnings for running on the track. Englands problem is that the can't keep all the best players fit at one time!

i think prior was partly to blame but he should get one more chance against NZ, we never looked like we could take 20 wickets, monty had a bit of a shocker but that was his first poor series and so did KP. Lets hope we turn it around for NZ!

I think the problem with out wicketkeepers since Alec Stewart has been we have not been willing to put our faith into any of them, at the first sight of a bad match the press were on their backs. I think we need to pick a young keeper maybe Mustard, and stick with him.

yeah it was.

Prior has been dropped for the New Zealand Series, either Tim Ambrose or Phil Mustard get a chance. I'd like to see Tim Ambrose, he looks an amazing talent.

I reckon u guys just need a good keeper. Your selectors seem to pick batsman-keepers but not keepr batsman in that order. Give a talented youngster ago, keep him there for an amount of time and then make a decision. What happened to simon jones anyway?

Keepers should be selected for their keeping not their batting. If they can bat its an added bonus.

my point exactly. You selelct a keeper who can keep and any runs they score is an extra. You don't pick a batsman who can keep.
