For example, the fast bowler Stuart Clarke gets not considered for any position and gets an 8 for 56 after tearing the English apart all summer.
I do find that strange. Clarke was the best bowler in the Ashes series. I suppose it's similar to the way England don't pick Hoggard (the theory being his length is too predictable and hittable in one-day matches), but it's not as if the bowlers in place are playing particularly well.
I'm quite happy to see him not in the squad, but I don't understand it.
