    Hey if you are going to punch something and want to get away without too much trouble, pick Root's face. Warner figured it out better ffs.

    Reckon by the time he'd have reached the UK the anger wouldn't have quite been there anymore.

    Trego not happy on Twitter, obviously he's right he should have been there.

    Him or someone else a bit left-field, we know what we're getting with Bell and Woakes, and in this form of the game it isn't great.

    Yep would have been a much better replacement, IMHO.

    He just has that excitement factor that goes well in a T20 side. 90mph yorkers, and the ability to spank it into the next town.

    Yeah, both Napier and Trego would have been better replacements than Bell and Woakes.

    The last thing you want to do at this stage is bring in someone with no international experience into a big tournament. As boring as Woakes coming in for Stokes is I'd still back him to easily outperform Trego. Least Woakes has been playing recently and England know exactly what he's capable of- which at this point a week before their first game is important.

    Nah disagree, as you probably would think with my lover for Trego, t20 is an odd animal, you just need a short impact to win matches, so experience can mean little, after all bringing in Lumb & Sidey when we won the world cup was a master-stroke. The form can easily make someone who was a nobody into a somebody because the other side may not be set up against them.

    Also Napier and Trego have proved to be better at the form, which might be a point.

    haha I tried to not let my view on Trego get in the way of what I was saying as I was trying to keeping it general about untested players playing out of season and without match practice . Still think asking Napier and Trego (who haven't played any cricket since the start of January and presumably in preseason at the moment) to go into a world cup in 7 days is fairly ludicrous. Napier if all things were equal would probably be a better bet for a one off tournament than Woakes. Trego I'd suggest not. Bowling is poor and likely wouldn't be used and he's an inferior batsmen to Luke Wright imo which about says it all.

    I think they're all in training, Trego has hit at the top of the order. I guess I'd find your lack of love for the like of Napes and Trigger less perturbing if you didn't still think dirtbag was okay, because he may turn out to be not that horrible in t-20. Why just keep on going for established England players when they've been proven to be crap, rather than might be crap. Which I think was Trego's point on twitter. So you don't think anyone can do better than Luke Wright, great.

    Neither him or Napier's fault they've been ignored before, maybe they'd have been terrible, but to go back to ones they know will be awful is just dogmatic and stubborn, clearly frightened they'll be proved wrong. which is no way of picking any thing.

    Regardless of any alternatives you care to mention I would not have Woakes anywhere near an England ODI or Twenty20 side, it does neither him or England any good at all.
