Paul Collingwood: The Owen Hargreaves of cricket

So, England have managed to win something in Australia, and the unlikely hero is that ginger bloke from Durham. A man who, before the Ashes had the reputation of being that bloke who would come in to the team if someone was injured, but nothing much was really expected from him. A man who, as Shane Warne pointed out in one of the better reported pieces of sledging this winter, got an OBE for scoring 10 in the final Ashes test in 2005. And now he’s scored a double century in the Test England really should have won and been instrumental in the one dayers with bat, ball, and in the field, and is probably now an automatic selection for the England XI.

Sounds very simillar to a certain Canadian and events in Germany last summer.
