Will Owais Shah finally get a run in the England side?

So THAT'S what Owais Shah's arse looks like. We've always wondered.

Owais Shah has been one of England's finest and most productive batsman for a gosh-darned long time. Last winter he got one Test against India when everyone else in the world was injured. He hit 88 and 38.

The order of the queue for England batting places has been pretty obvious for quite a while now. Officially, Alastair Cook's still filling in for Marcus Trescothick and Paul Collingwood for Michael Vaughan.

Being as Michael Vaughan's likely to miss the first Test next week, Collingwood will keep his place. However, it now looks like Kevin Pietersen might also be injured, which means that there's another batting place up for grabs.

According to The Queue, that place should go to Ed Joyce who was called up for the Ashes when Trescothick flew home. However, that was Duncan Fletcher's team. It's Peter Moores' side now and he's worked with Owais Shah over the past two winters. Also, rumour has it that Moores recognises that Shah's absolutely mint. He could potentially be in Moores' England side even without injuries.

According to The Queue, we're 1,451st in line for an England batting spot because of that time when James' dad said that we knew one end of a cricket bat from the other. We do as well. You hold the thin bit.

This means that in the unlikely event of well over a thousand injuries, we'll edge out Mark Ramprakash for the final batting spot.
