    This might not be viewable outside the UK, if so I apologise. Sky Sports are doing an ongoing series this summer, of the England Lions program from the winter just passed. It shows their winter tours to South Africa, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka as well as the things they worked on at the England performance centre in Loughborough, which included fitness work, specific cricket drills and improvements, media training (yes they actually do do that ) and there life away form cricket.

    Steyn and Philander are.

    Morkel is rubbish and suffers from Ishant Sharma syndrome (ie bowlers short/wide crap too often).
    Tahir is a joke.

    What gall you have to claim any bowler is as worse as Ishant Sharma? That privelege belongs solely to India. Morkel is several light years better.

    Morkel's favourite deliveries are the long hop 3 feet outside off and the leg stump half volley. He practices bowling them day-in, day-out so that he can bowl them with unerring perfection in match situations.

    ^yeah I know, what a pitiful thing to get all worked up about.

    Although at least you didn't get worked up about Murray Mints.
