No danger of England peaking too soon
1) England considering playing Giles over Panesar
2) Engalnd considering playing Jones over Read
3) If points 1 and 2 happen, it would mean that Geoffrey Boycott was right - Time's up Fletch...
In terms of the spinner/keeper debate, the value of having a quality keeper keeping to a quality spinner is incalculable, and certainly worth more than the few extra runs Jones (who can't keep) will get over Read, and Giles (who can't bowl) will get over Monty.
Ur like Saruman looking into a palantir the way you have foreseen this. If anything Jones keeping has improved a lot, but this has coincided with the arsehole fulling out of his batting.
Giles can bowl. That beauty he ripped to Martyn. And he also bagged Langer and Ponting so he aint no mug, but Monty is much better.
