    Paul Nixon hasn't confirmed it, but he might as well.

    Don't count out Ganguly and Tendulkar if India win the cup. Kumble should definitely go.

    Even though it's a bit unorthodox, England may well keep him on for a year or so in the ODI team after the WC. Obviously he's not going to play another one, but if the management believe the keeper they have penciled in for the next WC will be done more harm than good playing right now, then they might keep Nixon as a stop-gap measure.

    I honestly believe that if they've got anyone pencilled-in for 4 years' time they've lost their minds.

    Right now, the truth of the matter is that, if you're not going to pick Chris Read (as IMO they should) Nixon genuinely is the best wicketkeeper-batsman in one-day cricket in the country.

    Kumble said he's retiring from ODI cricket after the World Cup. So he definitely will go.

    Lara will almost certainly bow out of ODIs after the World Cup, regardless of the stage of the West Indies exit (or potential success).
    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."

    Can see Nixon being used for a season or so to give Davies time.

    Which they certainly should do - if they bring Davies in before he's ready he'll be a bit like McCullum used to be for us...dreadful. We're getting repaid for our patience with him now, but it would have been better to wait a couple of years before bringing him in IMO so I hope they do that with Davies.

    I assume you played against him Jack?

    Does have a fair FC record but pretty poor OD record.

    Could always ask Nixon to play another four years before O'Brien qualifies.

    Are you sure?
    I assume you have studied every one currently playing in any form of the game.......
    Now if you said he was the worst among the top 8 nations then I might be more inclined to agree with you....
    And do you reall think he is that bad...?

    Well he didn't seem to do too badly with the bat against NZ last week...

    obviously i was over exagerating when i said he was the worst keeper batsmen in the world. but he is certainly the worst among the top 8 nations by a long way and probly worse then most of the minnow teams keepers also. sure he had one alright innings against nz last week and maybe one half decent innings in the commonwealth bank but thats not good enough when the rest of his 10 or so international knocks have been pretty appalling. and he never looks comfortable out there batting. its just so amazing hes the best england has at the moment.

    Looking uncomfortable doesnt make you a bad batsmen...
    And give him a bit of leeway, I mean he has only had 12 matches and he seems to be settling into it.
