While everyone's having their say about Flintoff - and all I'll say in closing is that I think the management got it just about right and it'll hopefully knock some sense into him - I'd prefer to concentrate on what was another pretty average performance against Canada yesterday. A team of England's (theoretical) strength should really have eased to a total of more than 300 and bowled the opposition out. I doubt if many of the serious title contenders would have failed to do so.

To me, the only real plus was Ravi Bopara's performance; nice strokes, rapid running, waspish bowling and plenty of East London attitude.

He looks like he might be around for a while. At the moment it's a little harder to say that about England.
