    What a great choice that is (!)

    Only 1 of them should be in the England squad IMO.

    I sincerely hope these games are treated as the fundraisers that they are and not as anything of any cricketing importance.

    disappointing that sarwan wasn't picked - much better ODI player than hayden, strange that gillespie isn't there but that's probaly to even out the balance a bit more, otherwise i don't think you can complain

    Yeah, it'd be good to see the players with microphones on etc to add a bit of fun - like they've done in some of the testimonial matches.

    The Team as selected is a pretty good one. In fact it is not dissimilar to my selection. (only Martyn and Symmonds/Oram from my selection have been replaced by Hayden and Goughy).

    As I had previously suggested, Darren Gough does come in as he was not playing in the Eng V SA test series, and is worthy of any top ODI teams in the world.

    I am not sure that Dwayne Bravo was a better selection than Oram or symmonds, but I have no issue with that, as the purpose of this game is fund raising and showing unity of the Cricket World in aiding the victims of the Tsunami. (and as such it is important that it shows inclusiveness more than any thing!! Good on Sir Richard and Stevie Waugh !!)

    well, you can guarantee that an australian won't be, simply because of bias and wanting as many aussies as possible to get a crowd along. and with gayle and warne, will a third spinner be needed? but hadlee will fight for vettori, im sure.

    i wouldnt be suprised if the 12th man were an west indian player, just heard anthony howard (feel free to correct me) who is the manager of the west indies conveyed concern about allowing their players to take part so close to the VB series, for fear of injury. thankfully lara made it fairly clear that he and his compatriots were keen to play.

    i'm devastated that i have to play cricket that week. cant get along and support what is a wonderful concept.

    *puts tongue firmly in cheek* maybe someone should get together with a bookie and accept money for riggin the game, and donate the proceeds to the victims. *pulls tongue away* ah well, they'll make it close anyways, just like the one where bevan made runs.

    but seriously, i hope that a good game is put on, that is a great spectacle for the fans because im sure that htis game would attract some attnetion from those countries where cricket is still only developing, and that the mcg wicket is a bit better than the one that they produced for the test. it would be dreadful if it werent a sellout, especially considering the reduced capacity of the G.
