    I must admit i didnt see this particular call up but his figures this year are good enough to get in on merit...

    Australia captain Michael Clarke has been ruled out of the tour to India
    and requires "extensive rehabilitation" ahead of the return Ashes series.

    Boyd Rankin (Warwickshire) - shocking.

    Not a fan of his?

    I have to admit he hasn't played enough County Championship games for me, but his form in the one day series against Australia wasn't bad at all.

    Not seen much of Rankin to be honest - they usually go for pace and bounce in Australia

    I am pleased about Ballance - I rate him

    Not being English is a pathetic reason for not selecting Rankin.

    Working on your theory Trott,Prior,Pieterson,
    Stokes and Ballance should also not go.<doh><doh>

    Onions is a good "English wicket" bowler but
    Rankin has good pace and bounce.
    well suited to Aussie tracks.

    I suppose it is a crazy idea to actually pick eleven Englishmen to play for "England".

    All the others have English parents or have lived in England as a child.

    Check out Trott and Ballance before making this statement.

    Rankin was born in Derry N.I.which is in United Kingdom

    Regulations Governing the Qualification of
    Cricketers for England

    (a) he is either a British citizen or an Irish citizen; and
    (b1) he was born within England and Wales; or
    (b2) he has been resident in England and Wales for the
    immediately preceding four consecutive years

    Thought Trott's dad is English? Don't know about Ballance.

    I think you'll find Rankin was born in Londonderry.

    I disagree with the regulations, they should be changed to:
    (a) British subject and:
    (b) Born in England/Wales or
    (c) Lived in England/Wales as a child (under 18) or
    (d) Has English/Welsh parent

    Londonderry and Derry are the same city.

    If you are going to argue a point FFS get your facts right<doh>
    Still with an Avatar of the "wicked witch" I shouldn't
    expect anything else

    In 1984 the city council passed a resolution under section 51 of the 1972 Act to officially change the name of the district from "Londonderry" to "Derry", consequently changing the name of the council from "Londonderry City Council" to "Derry City Council"


    Are you a Nationalist or Unionist?

    Would still like to know your "English" squad,

    I'd describe myself as a Unionist with a small u. TBH, if the scotch go, can only see the UK splitting into small states and am not greatly bothered if that happens, at least in England we'll get telly without all the strange accents.

    I gave you my squad and my revised rules for who is eligible.
