Rikki Clarke

I rate Rikki Clarke as a poor county player. I think the stats bear me out. Why oh why is he being picked for England? I despair of our ODI selections. Strauss and before him, Vaughan and Hussain can not score quickly enough for International limited overs. Why can't we use players like Darren Maddy, (top scorer in 20/20) who I saw take Australia apart on their first match of the last Ashes tour? Bowlers who can neither strike nor contain should not be picked. What is the matter with the selectors?

Hasn't Tottenham been drawn to play a team in Prague? My husband and son support them. I guess the Czechs are equally mad on football, it is the international language.
