Hey, Essex. I enjoy your views on here more than most, but i sometimes think you are a bit Mary Contrary
Flower is a pragmatic and forward thinking coach who ensures that he gets the best out of players and evidently is building for the future with young talent who have the mental aptitude to take on the challenge. I am not too sure how you can challenge his judgement, Scott Borthwick included.
I think back whilst cringing to a multitude of previous England fuckwit picks such as Iglesden, Such, Adams, James.......the list is endless. Flower compares favourably.
Anyway, Salisbury is a poor example to use considering unlike most spinners he depreciated with age
Rashid may come again, for the same reasons i have outlined in this thread. Only time will tell.
