    England's ideal ODI squad

    Ok I think, if Englandchoose their ODI X1 from the following 15 players they will be competitive:

    Loye
    Trescothick
    Bell
    Pietersen
    Joyce
    Flintoff (captain)
    Collingwood
    Read
    Giles
    Anderson
    Harmison

    Broad
    Owais Shah
    ONions
    Ravinder Bopara


    C'mon you've gotta admit that's a pretty decent side.......

    Haven't seen Onions.....I picked him based on what I heard......have seen Bopara though and he looks a good player....he has also done well in this years Pro40.

    ALos, two names for the future: Mark Nelson and Varun Chopra

    Onions can't even get into the Durham one day side...

    And bopara isn't very good.

    Best way to pick 'em IMO. I've heard good things about that Camps lad.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Welll his figures may not be great....but obviously someone thinks he has some ability otherwise he wouldn't be picked.

    Put it this way, it's either him or Mahmood and I can't possibly see how he can be worse than the Saj

    Here's what I think is England's best one-day side including currently injured players.

    1. Tresco
    2. Strauss
    3. Cook?
    4. Pietersen
    5. Flintoff*
    6. Collingwood
    7. Read
    8. Giles
    9. Gough
    10. Harmison
    11. Anderson

    There are a lot of contenders for the number 3 spot, but I really don't see anyone better than Cook.

    Last two bowlers left in England? The way I see it, it's either Mahmood or anybody-but-Mahmood.

    I'd like to see this guy get a go.
