Wonderful knock by Carberry once again. As I keep saying he deserves to play for England and not some random selection. Keep displaying your ability Carbs!

It was a good knock but not a great one. Distinctly average bowling and dropped twice in two balls early on. I'd be very surprised if Carbs himself rates it very highly.

I would say distinctly better than Bairstows effort against Windies! Perhaps it he needs average knocks to get into the national side!

Do you seriously not appreciate there is a difference between the bowling attacks of the West Indies and Scotland?

And the fact that there is a difference between test and one-day cricket?

As for "average knocks" Bairstow has a first-class average of 49.50 this season whereas Carbs averages 36.61 so it seems that Bairstow's selection ahead of Carberry in the England test team is entirely justified.

Have you ever considered putting logic ahead of your prejudices?

You are telling me that I don't know the difference between West Indies attack and Scotland...don't pass judgement without knowing some facts mister. As to averages over few innings in a single season does not justify selection. If that was the case few of the selected players would get dropped. Carberry has done well over a number of years and in my opinion justifies selection ahead of Jonnny B. Jonny B should probably be given a chance in the limited format. I would say even Patel and Bopara are better option than Bairstow.

Just let me know when you champion the cause of a white cricketer "Mister".

All we have from you is a string of nonsensical examples as to why non-white players should be selected, implied suggestions that non-white players are not being selected because of their colour (in your previous threads) and criticism of white players.

Cricket is a game for players of all colours and selection should be based on performances and nothing else.

You do yourself and cricket no favours with your continual nonsense.
