England's achievement was the greater, however, because, unlike Notts and Warwicks, they managed it without a wicketkeeper.

I did hear recently that WG Grace was never given out LBW, as the umpires were too scared of what he might do to them. Didn't realise he also kidnapped other players until I read this. There is more to cricket than batting first

I agree entirely.

Reads the man but Fletcher/Vaughan must have something against him?

Yes. And Graveney too for some reason. It's the one thing I dislike about this current set up : it's got a bit cliquey as it did towards then end of Gooch's tenure when he dropped Gower from the Indian tour when he was not only probably England's best batsman for that tour, but also massively popular there and would have added considerably to the gates.

If you look at the batting averages at Test (and County) level of Jones and Read and subtract one from the other, Read would only have to take about 1 in 4 of the stumpings, run outs (one of the most embarassing incidents I have ever seen by a Test player) and catches which Jones has missed, to earn his corn. Jones is a nice guy and a decent county player but, certainly at the moment, woefully inadequate as a Test match wicket keeper.

Imagine what it would be like if he had to keep to Warne !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Sep 21, 2005, 11:22am #38 Joined Dec 2001 The current England setup would drop Warne instead of Jones! I also have no idea why some of the other players are touring. Who on earth is Loudon? Sidebottom would have given a Left Arm quickie option as a variation to the pace attack. A better player than Anderson IMHO JonnyT __________________ Trading Mentor

That's evidence that gann kept the secret to himself. ' It isn't visible, so it must secretly exist.... wow, there's logic for you. My heartfelt thanks for this thread, I just love reading illogical dot joining by the terminally optimistic, after all - who is it that puts the money into the market for others to remove? Gann, whilst evidently a charismatic chap (from a TA standpoint) would appear to have made far more money in the legend than he ever did in real life. A top trader from 1930 trying to use the same tools and tactics today would be slaughtered in short order - your best bet, if using a tried and true method from decades ago, is to hope it's so out of fashion that you can benefit from being slightly out of step with the horde. Picking winners is almost immaterial, flip a coin to do it - it's how you decide when to exit that counts. Dave
