    England look a really good unit going into the world cup after a long time, they have settled batting line up, Quality pace bowlers and a world class spinner.

    Squad Andrew Strauss (Middlesex, capt), James Adams (Hampshire), James Anderson (Lancashire), Ian Bell (Warwickshire), Ravi Bopara (Essex), Tim Bresnan (Yorkshire), Stuart Broad (Nottinghamshire), Paul Collingwood (Durham), Alastair Cook (Essex), Steven Davies (Surrey), Jade Dernbach (Surrey), Steven Finn (Middlesex), James Hildreth (Somerset), Craig Kieswetter (Somerset), Michael Lumb (Hampshire), Eoin Morgan (Middlesex), Samit Patel (Nottinghamshire), Kevin Pietersen (Surrey), Liam Plunkett (Durham), Matt Prior (Sussex), Adil Rashid (Yorkshire), Ajmal Shahzad (Yorkshire), Darren Stevens (Kent), Graeme Swann (Nottinghamshire), James Tredwell (Kent), Chris Tremlett (Surrey), Jonathan Trott (Warwickshire), Chris Woakes (Warwickshire), Luke Wright (Sussex), Michael Yardy (Sussex)

    Probable 15 should be:

    Andrew Strauss*
    Steven Davies†
    Jonathan Trott
    Kevin Pieterson
    Ian Bell
    Paul Collingwood
    Eoin Morgan
    Tim Bresnan
    Greame Swann
    Stuart Broad
    James Anderson

    Chris Woakes,Ajmal Shahzad,Michael Yardy,Kieswetter(Reserve keeper)

    I seriously hope Luke Wright isn't selected as he is quite over rated and has never really contributed enough with bat or ball.

    Any reason for not including Tim Bresnan? he is pretty useful with bat and also he really bowled well in the Ashes which shows he's in good form.

    Oops. Just forgot him. i guess I'll have him in place of Shehazad. But Bresnan is quite unpredictable. At time he can be ████ and get hammered all the way. Also Broad and Swann can contribute with the batt

    This will be my 15 for the WC :

    Andrew Strauss *
    Steve Davies +
    Alastair Cook (mind you , he is tremendous in SC tracks)
    Ian Bell
    Kevin Pietersen
    Jonathan Trott
    Paul Collingwood
    Eoin Morgan
    Luke Wright
    Michael Yardy
    Tim Bresnan
    Stuart Broad
    Graeme Swann
    Chris Woakes
    James Anderson

    If Cook doesn't make the cut , i have no choice but to opt for an extra bowler in Shahzad .

    Yardy
    Bresnan
    Swann
    Broad
    Anderson

    Trott
    Kieswetter
    Tremlett
    Woakes - It will be interesting to see how Waokes batting contiues to go as the tour of AUS progesses. Since he already looks more technically sound that Wright, so if he keeps improving - he has to go to the WC.

    Yardy and Bresnan both in one lineup is a disaster IMO. Yardy will get smashed a Bresnan will surely give over an over. Also if England are somewhat 100/5 then atleast some specialist batsmen would have done more good than yardy

    Collingwood
    Bresnan
    Yardy
    Swann
    Broad
    Anderson

    with Shahzad, Prior, Trott and Patel/Rashid as reserves.

    My only reason for including Patel/Rashid is because the sub-continent tend to turn a bit, so another All-Round Spinner might be useful.

    Although Yardy's batting @ 7 certainly isn't yet very assuring. His bowling has proven to be very capable 5th bowling option, so for now that is not a worry for England. So until/if it becomes a worry, then we should worry about that.

    Bresnan also if fine ATM, although i can understand why some may still be pessimistic about his position in the team.

    i really think at the moment wright will be selected before woakes.

    no one think tredwell might be in the mix?

    Hope hat doesn't happen. IMO Luke Wright is useless in ODI. Rather go for Woakes or Jono Trott

    well, I really think they should be looking at taking 2 front line spinners. Spin is likely to be very effective, and Swann and Yardy is not enough, you can really tie a team down in the middle overs with good spin. Yardy's alright, but he's not great and 20 overs of spin could feel inadequate.

    Pietersen can provide a couple of overs I guess, but he's not quite as an effective back-up option as some of the sub-continental guys (who all seem to have 2 or 3 batsmen capable of turning their arm over to some effect) or duminy or hussey. KP is very, very part-time. 2 or 3 overs max, I think you want the potential to bowl 30 overs of spin in some matches.

    I'd go with this squad for the upcoming WC. You know, they're playing good cricket and they may want to keep going with that form in this World Cup. They've got a fantastic team and I don't see why they can't. The batting didn't really fire in this T20 all the way down but still they tried to get a win in the first odi which is just 1 wicket victory and imo, it's not enough.

    Strauss *
    Kieswetter †
    Pietersen
    Bell
    Collingwood
    Morgan
    Bresnan
    Swanny
    Broad
    Anderson
    Woakes

    Tremlett ; Prior ; Yardy ; Shahzad.
