    I honestly dont think he'll be a very successful in ODIs but i think we're desperate enough to try anything so his selection is acceptable
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    If we're considering short term options then why not pick Mark Ramprakash, Graeme Hick and Mark Ealham? I think id much rather see Ealham and Jon Lewis take the new ball than Plunkett and Mahmood and similarly id prefer to have Hick and Ramprakash in the middle than Strauss and Collingwood.

I think this is really over looking Ian Bell. Unless he opens , which is a bad move for me. I don't think Cook really needs this. England should have sent another opener out there. A Darren Maddy perhaps (Any better ideas encouraged). If Nixon plays then the batting looks better , but that would be another knife in the coffin for Chris Read. As for the bowling I would be surprised if Tremlett lines up along with Lewis as the two main seamers along with Flintoff , and two spinners in the form of Panesar and Dalrymple.

    Probable line-up:

    1. Andrew Strauss
    2. Ian Bell / Alastair Cook ( More likely Bell)
    3. Michael Vaughan
    4. Kevin Pietersen
    5. Paul Collingwood
    6. Andrew Flintoff
    7/8. Nixon/Read + Dalrymple. If Nixon plays Dalrymple will be at Number 8. If Read then Dalrymple At 7.
    9. Chris Tremlett
    10. Jon Lewis
    11. Monty Panesar / Saj Mahmood (Depends on how the selectors are feeling).
    Aside from Cook being out of the ODI squad, as mentioned above, Dalrymple is a better batsman than both Nixon and Read, so why would it matter which one of them plays? He should be batting above them.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Don't know where I got Cook from. Vaughan will most likely open in that case.

    I wasn't sure either way , having seen little of both Read and Nixon.

    Given that Bell has only faild to pass 30 twice in 9 innings opening the batting in ODIs, I'm fairly certain he will be opening the batting. He's practically the number one opener IMO.

    Innings in ODIs, opening:

    75, 5, 53, 30, 46, 32, 4, 43, 50

Liam Plunkett hasnt played a game since his injury, yet the selectors seem to believe that he'll be ready to maintain his already dismal current ODI record.
    What on earth is the point of having Flintoff in the side when he himself claims that he cant put his ankle down without feeling any pain? One can only assume hes in the side for his batting.
    and Michael Vaughan who is currently setting the world alight in the Academy is set to resume his brilliant ODI career.
    Unfortunately except Plunkett being out for Broad, England don't have much better options around to pick..
