Thoughts? Length of the tail worries me somewhat; Anderson at #9 far from optimal, especially with Trott and Bell not in prime nick and Denis jr and Sammy, at best, unproven.
Lot of responsibility on Messrs Cook, Pietersen & Prior.
Swann at 8 and Anderson at 9 is fine IMO. It's just a typical lower order rather than your usual ridiculous one. Prior's the best #7 in world cricket too which obviously helps.
