Moo's comment put me on 'adjective watch.' Lots of 'in disarrays' (BBC, ABC), one 'unholy mess' (Graham Gooch), a 'turmoil,'and now one genuine 'chaos' (BBC/TV)
Best comment I've read yet is from journalist Tom Fordyce:-
"There's something terribly English about the whole sorry shaboodle. Just as the Australian team looks to be at its weakest in a quarter of a century, with a home Ashes series just around the corner and barely a ticket left for any of the five Tests, English cricket has taken careful aim and shot itself in both feet."
Andrew Strauss has been appointed captain. Personally I welcome that, he was my candidate before Pietersen was appointed. Strauss probably has the best record as England captain so far, having won two matches and drawn two (v. Pakistan, 2006), scoring centuries in each of the two winning ones, and averaging about 55 in tests as captain.
It looks as if Andy Flower, the assistant coach, will take over as coach for now.
