    WC 2007 Squad Selection

    Right, in a continuation of my obsession with predicting things, with 18 months to go it's about the kind of time that we get a rough idea of who's under consideration for the World Cup squads for each country. Give potential 15-man squads for any country, and we'll dig this thread up when the squads are actually picked and see how wrong we were. Should provide some interesting debate as well, might help keep this thread going beyond my usual three pages' worth.

    England:
    MP Vaughan*
    ME Trescothick
    AJ Strauss
    KP Pietersen
    A Flintoff
    PD Collingwood
    GO Jones+
    AF Giles
    SJ Harmison
    SP Jones
    LE Plunkett
    IR Bell
    MJ Prior (+)
    ID Blackwell
    JM Anderson
    AN Cook

    Australia:
    RT Ponting*
    AC Gilchrist+
    MJ Clarke
    MEK Hussey
    AJ Symonds
    SM Katich
    DR Martyn
    SR Watson
    CL White
    GD McGrath
    B Lee
    NW Bracken
    SK Warne ( )
    BL Hodge
    SW Tait
    PN Jaques

    India:
    R Dravid*
    MS Dhoni+
    SR Tendulkar
    V Sehwag
    IK Pathan
    G Gambhir
    Y Singh
    M Kaif
    H Singh
    RP Singh
    AB Agarkar
    JP Yadav
    M Kartik
    VRV Singh
    A Rayudu
    S Raina

    That's all I can really be bothered to do at the moment. Thoughts?

    For the Australian squad, Phil Jacques is more likely to be there than Martyn...and for India, perhaps Suresh Raina ahead of Rayudu. Other than that, they look fairly accurate to me..but who knows what'll happen between now and then.

    Blackwell won't be in the England side. Won't it be squads of 16 to incorporate the supersub role?

    Yes, actually, it probably will. I'll change it.

    One of the more impressive tails that England will have put out. And no slow bowlers. It really is a team for all conditions.
