Sports letter: No kidding

Sir: What is the point of bringing younger players into the England cricket team (Aftab Habib, for example) and then dropping them after two Tests? The available evidence suggests that the old guard are not up to it and the only logical way for English cricket to make progress is to call up the young lions and persevere with them no matter what. Discarding them in favour of players whose greatest days are well behind them does their confidence no good and is no way for England to regain some respect as a cricketing nation.
