England batsmen remember what the bat is for
Admittedly it's on a batsman friendly pitch (although they said that about the last one, and Collingwood aside we know what happened there), but at least some of the England cricketers have remembered how to bat, including two who will actually get picked. Although I still hold out hopes that Read (worst Test innings in 2006 - 33) will get picked ahead of Jones (no. of test innings in 2006 higher than Read's worst this year - once in 16 innings), as he's still a better wicket keeper (Jones has improved that part of his game) and frankly doesn't appear to be batting any worse these days.
