    What are your Super Series sqauds?

    Since the final 14 man test and ODI squads are going to be named on August 22, I thought that this will be a good time to start a discussion on likely final squads. Here is the full list of 20 probables for each, although players outside these lists (eg Shane Bond, Simon Jones) can be added if selectors decide.

    Test Probables
    Andrew Flintoff
    Steve Harmison
    Rahul Dravid
    Virender Sehwag
    Sachin Tendulkar
    Brendon McCullum
    Daniel Vettori
    Shoaib Akhtar
    Inzamam ul Haq
    Jacques Kallis
    Makhaya Ntini
    Shaun Pollock
    Muttiah Muralitharan
    Brian Lara
    Michael Vaughan
    Anil Kumble
    Younis Khan
    Mark Boucher
    Graeme Smith
    Shivnarine Chanderpaul

    ODI
    Andrew Flintoff
    Steve Harmison
    Rahul Dravid
    Virender Sehwag
    Sachin Tendulkar
    Brendon McCullum
    Daniel Vettori
    Shoaib Akhtar
    Inzamam ul Haq
    Jacques Kallis
    Makhaya Ntini
    Shaun Pollock
    Muttiah Muralitharan
    Brian Lara
    Kevin Pietersen
    Shahid Afridi
    Abdul Razzaq
    Herschelle Gibbs
    Kumar Sangakkara
    Chris Gayle

    Smith/Strauss/Vaughan/Kallis
    Dravid
    Lara
    Sachin
    Flintoff
    Boucher
    Murali
    Shoaib
    Harmison
    Pollock/Kumble/Vettori
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    I'd agree with that, except have Sangakarra (who the selectors in all their wisdom have overlooked) replace Boucher, and Kumble as the definite last bowlers - considering the Test will be at the SCG.

    I want Sangakkara too. I said that in the other thread. I would be glad if they picked him over Boucher, but it doesn't seem that way, not after what Atherton has seemed to have suggested to aussie. He posted it in the other thread "Doesn't the super series idea look a little pointless now?".

    Does anyone really think the English, especially Harmison, are going to want to play in this?

    Yes - especially if we win the Ashes. Another chance to beat the Aussies will be exactly what Freddie wants, anyway, and Harmison will be too chuffed at being selected to worry about homesickness. It's only one Test anyway, not a Tour. Vaughan would love the opportunity to captain the side I'd assume - if he played, he'd certainly skipper the team. Seeing as it's pretty much a straight choice between him and Smith for the second opener's berth, whichever one of them plays will captain the side.

    It may sound trite but I don't think that simply "beating the Aussies" is what motivates most of our guys. It's about winning FOR England. I would certainly be very surprised to see Harmison and Flintoff bowling with anything like the intensity and emotion that they had at the end of the last two tests (although in Harmison's case it may make him bowl better )

    Since they're playing in Sydney and its a 6 day test match, I think they've gotta have two spinners

    Test
    Sehwag
    Vaughan (capt)
    Kallis
    Lara
    Tendulkar
    Flintoff
    Sangakkara (wk)
    Kumble
    Akhtar
    Harmison
    Murali

    Subs: Bond, Dravid, Vettori

    Dravid aint a certainty in my book cos with the exception of that one Kolkata innings, everytime he's faced Australia with Mcgrath and Warne he's totally chickened out and looks **** scared. Pollock is just too slow to cause the Aussies any problems in a Test match - he's the typical trundler that they would feast on. Akhtar has always said he'd do much better if he had a better bowling attack backing him up, so here's his chance to prove it,

    ODI side
    Sehwag
    Tendulkar
    Lara
    Kallis
    Pietersen
    Flintoff
    Sangakkara
    Razzaq
    Murali
    Bond
    Harmison

    Subs: Afridi, Gayle, Pollock

    ODI:

    Gibbs
    Sehwag
    Lara
    Tendulkar
    Inzamam
    Flintoff
    Sangakara
    Pollock
    Bond
    Muralitharan
    Akhtar

    (the bowling attack is really, really lame compared to what It could have been 5-6 years ago)

    1. I must say i kinda agree with your point on Pollock that maybe he may be a bit too slow the really trouble Australia & if Australia have to face Harmison/Pollock & Freddie they could cause some problems, but since its SCG which isn't a quick pitch i reckon Pollock will play in front of Harmy also you must note Harmy could be unwilling to play because of Homesickeness.

    2. I dont think Vaughan will open at all let alone skipper, Smith will surely open with Sehwag & i reckon Lara will skippers both sides.

    3. Even though Dravid may not have made a lot of runs againts Pigeon & Warne Kallis hasn't either plus Dravid is better batsman in most areas than Kallis & i cant see Dravid not playing, but Kallis could well & play if Tendulkar isn't back

    4. With regards to the ODI side Pietersen wont play come Dravid has to be in their plus Inzi is a better ODI batsman than Kallis IMO so i would play him in front of Kallis & Akhtar definately will play ahead of Harmy in the ODI's.

    5. I wont have Gayle has a back-up for Tendulakr i would pick smith.

    I don't think Kallis has covered himself with glory against them either.

    And I believe a certain Dravid innings in Adelaide has been forgotten, too?
