I'm sure the above comment is tongue in cheek, both are "rested".

Dead rubber. Chance for the Yorkshire boys to improve their drinks making skills ahead of the winter tour

I wonder why they didn't give poor Joe a rest.
God he must be knackered.......
I wonder if he even knows where he's waking up half the time - does he ever get to go home.....?

They will give him the rest to coincide with our last three CC matches. Although he can have a rest for the next 40 overs now

That was a lazy and mentally tired looking shot, with no footwork leaving big gap. He should have been rested and Ali tried at number 3.

Joe has played far less cricket than 100`s of county players this season, do they all need a rest?? Nearly all the county cricketers play 4 times more days cricket than Joe does each season.

I wonder if that's true?
If you looked at the year as a whole - since January 1st - how many days of cricket has Joe played...?
I appreciate your point and I know what youre saying - but with the volume of international cricket these days and given that Joe plays in all three formats I bet hes played a lot of cricket this year.
You also have to factor in the travelling and the overnight stays - in the current one day series he's played five games in five different cities while our lads have spent a week in Southampton watching the rain.

You also have to factor in the higher levels of intensity, pressure and scrutiny associated with international cricket. I suspect it takes a greater toll than county cricket.

Both Sri Lanka series were a joke, this one day series vs Pakistan has been. Had the ECB chose to play on pitches like they did against Australia last year then the same would have applied to the tests.

That'll teach 'em for dropping Rashid, Ali & Plunkett.

Yes it does seem a little odd to leave out the two main spinners and only go in with Dawson's part-timers (and that is all they are at international level) at a ground like Cardiff, but when you're 4-0 up I guess you can afford to experiment. I think today will remind England of the importance of having wicket-takers like Rashid and Plunkett to bowl the middle overs; the likes of Dawson and Jordan just didn't offer the same threat today. As much as the batting, I think we suffered from the same thing in the SF v Surrey, they had Meaker's extra pace through the middle overs but we didn't have an attacking option to trouble Davies and Foakes.
