    Pietersen
    Prior
    Flintoff
    Rashid
    Broad
    Swann
    Anderson
    Onions

    yup, he said his squad would be the XI above plus Collingwood and they asked him who he'd leave out if it was spinning (to play Rashid) and he's said you couldn't leave Onions out...then went on to say you couldn't leave any of the others out but you could leave Collingwood out.

    That depressed looking guy was shocking. Allot is always shocking. The other two (?) were good though.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    The youngish guy is the depressed looking guy right? cos he was shocking, talking about England doing pretty well in the T20 WC and the only player who might have improved the team was Napier. And said Collingwood had a good tournament as captain

    Swann
    Sidebottom
    Anderson

    There is a genuine case for Flintoff to bat 8/9 as dav said, I think he'll finally play a full series (if he stays fit) as a 7 though. Prior is too good to not be in the top six.

    Same team as dav I think, just a different batting order. I think Sidebottom V Onions is the only question being asked at this point.

    Onions will probably get a game at some point though. Don't think we'll see Panesar or Vaughan all series, Bell is the first batsman in the queue I'd imagine.
    I agree with this post completely.
