Oh it’s cruel, it’s painfully cruel
Courtesy of The Ashes Blog who provide the following reasons Ashley Giles should continue playing for England:
1. He makes James Anderson look threatening.
2. His bowling average is almost as good as Matthew Haydenâ€™s batting average.
3. As the Personal Life Coach for Ricky Ponting, Ashley Giles felt that the Australian captain was in desperate need of a bit of encouragement, so he sacrificially dropped that catch on the boundary. But thatâ€™s just the sort of kind, generous guy that he is.
4. His Royal Highness brings a certain amount of class and dignity into the England team. Well, they need to make up for Kevin Pietersenâ€™s presence somehow.
So please, keep Ashley playing, and make benefit glorious King of Spain.
