Who's the England spinner most likely to rip through the Australia tail-end and comdemn our colonial cousins to crushing defeat?

The Ashes

Does anyone else think it odd that Panesar didn't play in the first test? And should the selectors keep faith with Harmison, or go for Mahmood in Adelaide?

IMHO, if they swapped the players with the commentators (Gower, Botham & co) they'd have more chance :(

Is it coincidence that Warn has spent, so it seemed, most of the previous month saying how great Panesar is and how he's the biggest threat to Austrailia...... then he doesn't play....

Or are we going for a similar appraoch to last year, start horribly, blag some dodgy weather and pretty crappy decisions from Mr Pontin and we win.

Start horribly, check..... crappy weather, not likely, Ricky gonna make same mistakes, again, unlikely...... we're screwed!
I think, therefore I compile

I think Panesar is probably the best spinner but isn't picked because Giles will hit 10 more runs in a game.
