Bresnan now being unavailable is a huge blow to the ODI team...but equally he'll be missing the last Test, so I'd be pretty certain Tremlett will come in for him. God knows if KP will be fit, so equally we may see Taylor get a go. Only minor changes for the last Test then. Should be a good Test.
Five star thread.

I've already made all the points I wanted to make for the next month of two though.
Umm where do we put the T-20 side, anyway Carberry called up along with the usual suspects.
England T20 squad v Australia: Broad, Bopara, Briggs, Buttler, Carberry, Willey's bitch, Finn, Hales, Lumb, Morgan, Rankin, Tredwell, Wright
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.
Would be my side.
Agree with that totally, Briggs/Rankin pitch dependent.
Can only assume Broad will get most/all of the ODI series off.
Apparently Root has now been added to the squad. Can only assume they forgot him when naming the initial squad.
Bopara still isn't bowling which is annoying. Wright also bowled a grand total of 1 over in the 6 games he played for Sussex in the T20. So possibly the reason Root comes in. You can tell that Samit Patel is a complete persona non grata with the england guys these days - not selected all summer for the full team or the lions iirc.
Maybe if Samit gave up his love affair with the pies he'd be in the set up.
