Competing for places..

We are all quite realistic about who is competing for places.

With the wicket-keepers it is Chris Read against Geraint Jones. With the batsmen, Ian Bell and Alastair Cook and I are fighting for two spaces.

There are no niggles between us. If anything, we drive each other on. It's not something we tend to talk about, though.

Colly, you seem to have conveniently forgotten to mention the real competition - the competition for the spinner's slot - Monty Vs Giles. Ian Bell shouldn't have too many doubts about walking into the final XI. It should be a toss-up between you and Cook. I would pick you. But honestly, there shouldn't be too much change in the team's fortunes if they don't pick you. Same with the keeping slot - it shouldn't really matter much who gets picked between Jones and Read. The real question of debate is with the slow-bowling slot.
