    There's going to be uproar at the lack of Macca....

    No England players though is slightly disappointing though I can't argue as I haven't been able to watch any games. No contenders?

    I would put Graeme White forward. Todd Astle is also a candidate.

    Mmmmm...i think minnow countries are allways going to be more competetive at U19 level because it's more about talent than what coaching and guidance they've received back home.

    But hopefully we'll see these players improve and become real stars in the furture,but ihave to say i'm a bit worried baout England.

    It's hard to nominate, when you haven't really seen many of them play.

    Todd Astle was pretty damn consistent for NZ though. I suppose thats about it from NZ. Although Hamish Bennett bowled pretty well too.

    Cooper seemed pretty good, but then, I only remember one good score.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Nah, Macca looks too young. He's the new Ian Bell.

    i think the problem England had was that they weren't really looking to the world cup until after the end of the 2005 season. This meant that they were basically almost completely changing their side, its no surprise they were awful in Bangladesh, and they did better than i thought they would in the world cup.

    Last summer they had the likes of Smith, Broad, Footit, Harrison, Davies, Latouf, Ben Harmison. The only players left were Ali, Chopra and James.

    I guess other teams might have followed this path aswell, although certainly the majority of the SL side that toured were involved in the WC.

    Actually im not sure why Broad, Davies and Denly didn't take part, they are still only 19. Does anyone know what the cut off date was?

    Cut off date is August 31st, I think. So you had to be 18 or younger on that day, and anyone who turned 19 1/8 and onwards is eligible.
