    Who'll be our opener?
    Vaughan most prob.

    Im guessing Lahore team will be:

    Trescothick
    Vaughan
    Bell
    Pietersen
    Collingwood
    Flintoff
    Jones
    Giles
    Udal
    Harmison
    Hoggard

    well england survive thanks to those white umpires.
    Wow, what did the umpires do today to deny Pakistan victory? It's so funny, no matter what happens you scream racism and cheating, maybe you're just paranoid and looking for excuses to make up for your team's sub-standard performances.

    well it looks like england have no chance of winning the next game as its in the home of pakistan, LAHORE, and if you go by statistics you will know pakistan never lose there.
    Hahah - funny guy - in the last 10 games Pakistan has played at Lahore, they've won 3, lost 3 and drawn 4. The last team to beat Pakistan in Lahore was none other than... England. So I'd hardly say they never lose in Lahore.

    i would like to see strauss out from the next match, thanks to him england get early collapses.
    He's leaving anyway to attend to the birth of his first child, and is one of England's best batsmen, just having a poor tour.


    also it should be the end of udal and his career, i would put anderson in his place.
    Vaughan has hinted he may be dropped for the next test.

    pakistan would have to bring back hasan raza for afridi and maybe drop malik for kammal.
    Raza had a pretty shocking first test...

    top knocks by inzi, and he is making those white fools at ICC eat there words for not picking him in super series and giving him an award,
    Hahahah - again, really funny. Inzamam made a total of ONE RUN against Australia in the Super Series after acting like the most pretenious baby the cricketing world has ever seen. Crying that he doesn't get a place in the team and then makes one run. He made himself look really smart there, didn't he?

    I hope collingwood actually does a good job this time - he's such a good player but just hasn't brought it to the tests so far - it would be great to see him cement a place in the team - he's a brilliant all-rounder.

    Hoggard
    Wouldn't Pietersen keep his place of 5th behind Collingwood?

    Also Hoggard should stay 10, he does a different role to Harmie, he's probably a better bat overall, though his slogging for quick boundaries isn't as good. It depends on the situation really, but when we have a proper batsman in still Hoggard would be best...

    the last few is always hard to decide - if theres another good bat in there send in hoggard to hold up the end - he should really be taught to take singles better tho...
    if its another tail ender, send in harmy to hit some big runs then hoggard can come and support whoevers last.

    Yup, pretty much agree with that.

    Remember Hoggies 4 though, legend.

    I haven't been able to see the tests, but does Vaughan look fully fit? It seems his batting may be suffering from his injury.

    I think I saw something on teletext about England almost definately changing their bowling attack and swapping a spinner for a seamer. Either Anderson or Liam Plunkett. Would be interesting to see Plunkett getting a go.

    Nah I think Collingwood's having to weather the storm a bit regarding his test career, he should be at 5 or 6 behind proven batsmen. Excellent player though as said before, hopefully he'll come good in the test arena.

    I agree about Hoggard, does his bit and lets Harmison welly the ball around!

    It was the usual: easy chase and top order fluff it up.

    Down to Giles and Hoggard, looks over. They're both LEGENDS and win us the game, Hoggard relieves immense pressure by hitting a great 4.
