Just hang fire on that ticker-tape parade and put the open-top bus back in the garage. Suddenly, thoughts of witnessing an Ashes and World Cup double in the space of a few months this coming winter look a touch optimistic, unless of course you happen to be Australian.

On the day that it was announced Kevin Pietersen will pull on a Hampshire jersey in anger this season, the Rose Bowl club could not muster a second miracle.

Spot the difference. "The selectors have had to make some tough decisions, young academy graduates all seized their chances, a couple of senior players have missed out." And then: "We've picked a balanced squad that can meet the needs of the Twenty20 format: aggressive batting with variation and strength in depth, and various bowling options that accommodate the conditions and surfaces in the West Indies." The first are paraphrased comments from Clare Connor about the England Women's squad which will defend their World Twenty20 title in the West Indies. They went on a tour of India where some young players had the chance of full international competition, took it and have kept out more senior players seeking a return. The second is from the National Selector of the England men's team, Geoff Miller, in putting his stamp of approval on the England men's team. It contains three players never before capped in the T20 format, an admission if ever there was one that up until the tournament itself, selection had simply been wrong. Why they should have got it right now is difficult to judge considering the appalling track record. Michael Lumb is the latest to be called up as a catch-all opener, in the footsteps of such discards as Vikram Solanki, Darren Maddy, Joe Denly, Matt Prior and Luke Wright to name but a handful. It's possible they have landed on a correct combination, but impossible that this has come about through careful planning rather than blind panic.
