Testing Times

I commented yesterday on Barry Beef's suggested England XI for the Ashes...
"Axe Trescothick for Christ sake and open with Cook and Strauss and use Collingwood as the occasional bowler... although any 'occasional' bowler, even against the Aussie tail, is one bloody big risk. But Trescothick is shot, anyway, (that could come back and bite me on the arse) and will give way in any even. Michael Vaughan, My Lord, is on the way back."
Well, it looks like my arse is safe from a biting for the time being, because Trescothick has made the decision himself. I wish him well for the future, but I suspect this must finally be the end of his Test career.
