So, with Bopara being as shit as he is and neither Bell or Colly scoring runs, a new batsman is needed for the final test.

Options appear to be Key, Ramps, Tresco, Trott or Carberry.

Although it is Ramps home ground I think it'd be a massive step backwards to bring him back for just one match, but he is the most likely to score some runs.

Tresco is mental and has pretty much ruled himself out of a possible return so I don't think he's the answer either.

That basically leaves Key (previously flopped every time he's given a chance) and the untried pair of Trott and Carberry. Trott I guess is the most likely as he has already been included in the squad but I'm not convinced either of them get the runs.

Let's hope they all get some time in the middle for their county sides and we actually have a few batsman playing next week who won't just throw their wickets away.

What are your thoughts? Who do you reckon should be in the team?

Stick with Ravi, still technically better than any of those possible candidates.

NO to old timers like Ramps and Key.

I wonder what PKPure's thoughts are on the matter?

Trott will come in for Bopara, but that will be the only batting change I reckon.

But that is only down to the fact that there are inadequate replacements available. Key is not a favourite of the selectors / Flower, and they won't bring Ramprakash back now despite the fact he should have been back in the side about three years ago.

dont think we can win this as the selectors are not risking the good players for the game
