Banger wins The Daily Telegraph terminator award

Simon Briggs writes in The Daily Telegraph:



At the beginning of this series Michael Vaughan told Jones that the role was a long-term investment "not a Christmas present". But with only 50-odd games to go before the 2007 World Cup, there is a danger that England could be wasting valuable time on a wrong-headed strategy.

No one denies that Jones has plenty of shots. But on the evidence of this series he also has plenty of ways of getting out. When one of England's openers is Trescothick, who rivals Chris Gayle and Virender Sehwag for the title of the most destructive top-order batsman in world cricket, it seems bizarre to give him an unproven pinch-hitter as a partner. It is not as if England are stuck for alternatives. Any one of Vaughan, Andrew Strauss, Vikram Solanki and Ian Bell would be perfectly capable of taking on the new ball.

What, What, What? Banger rivals Gayle and Sehwag for the title of the most destructive top-order batsman in world cricket????



Has Adam Gilchrist retired from world cricket? There are a lot of top-order batsmen who are more destructive than Banger.
