England Team Announced

No real surprises in the England team announced for the first Test against the West Indies. In some ways I’m disappointed that Motor Mouth Nixon didn’t get a Test debut but since he’s nearly as old as me, I’m not overly surprised either :oops:

Michael Vaughans broken finger nail ruled him out of selection so they gave the captaincy to Strauss. I guess Freddie was expecting it after the whole Pedalogate business at the World Cup.

England team for first Test vs West Indies
Andrew Strauss (captain), Alastair Cook, Ian Bell, Kevin Pietersen, Paul Collingwood, Andrew Flintoff, Matt Prior, Liam Plunkett, Steve Harmison, Matthew Hoggard, Monty Panesar, Owais Shah.

After my wee break from all things cricket, I’m actually quite looking forward to the first Test. If nothing else, it’ll be good to be back watching proper cricket rather than that pyjama business…
