I think Bopara could do a decent job. He's a good player of spin (certainly better than Lumb), and Kieswetter played very nicely in Bangladesh. If the openers have decent tournaments, and most importantly in Bopara's case, doesn't take up too many deliveries scoring slowly before getting out. I think we've got the makings of a good side. I don't realistically think we're going to win, but we've definitely got a better chance this year than in the last 2.
I'm liking England's batting line-up a lot. Suddenly, with the addition of the newcomers, the blossoming of Morgan and the development of Wright, it's starting to look a really excellent T20 line-up.
However having Michael Yardy (excellent gutsy FC batsman, astonishingly bad and unwatchable bowler) playing as a specialist spinner is a damning indictment of T20 cricket.
Yeah think it is highly likely, would rather just go in with one spinner and play Anderson.
Not got a bad side for once but think the bowling is a bit short to actually win it.
