How Do You Solve a Problem Like the English Cricket Team

Trescothick out of the Ashes after his stress-related illnesss returned. Perhaps this puts a question mark over his long-term test future, which would normally be a great loss. So that sorts out the batting dilemma. Will it be Bell at 3? Sadly though you got think is losing Trescothick such a big loss these days?

UPDATE: Ed Joyce of Middlesex has got the call to replace Trescothick. Joyce is a quality player but personally I would have gone with either Rob Key or Mark Butcher - players who are specialist openers/number 3 bat.

I think Butch is past it, but you're right about Key, and if the rather rotund Mr Key can make it, there's hope for all of us who are partial to the occasional pie!
Butch is a living legend. While I think its unlikely he'll ever play for England again, I think this is a real shame.

Never forget: Mark Butcher, Mark Butcher. Hard as nails and someone to be scared of.
