    Will Trescothick open for England in the India tour?

    I've seen tresco play once or twice, in the Friends Provident Trophy, he scored a two 50s when I saw him. I think those mental illnesses have gone away and he should be opening in no time. He is a qaulity open and a brilliant slip fielder.

    He'll definately open for England again, whether it is against the Indians remains to be seen.

    This is quite simply brilliant

    And I think he will be recalled for Strauss

    I think he'll be in the ODI side - simply because he's so vital to it. I don't think he'll be in the test team for the India series though - at least not the start of it.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Hmmm, I reckon that once he's picked, he'll stay picked (unless he gets injured or plays atrociously) ie if he plays in the ODIs against the windies I reckon we can expect to see him in for Strauss against India.

    I wouldn't mind if he just eased back in with ODIs for the time being though, that's where we've missed him most. Then again, his record V Aus may not be great, but I do feel we missed him in the Ashes as well.

    We'll see.

    Strauss has to go soon, whether it'll be next Test remains to be seen.

    And Trescothick is the only obvious candidate.

    Some reports I've read indicate that it will be Flintoff who takes his place when he is fit, which would give Strauss a fair few innings to get it right, Not excited by the idea of Vaughan opening though, though he might as well be opening at the moment. Also, love Bell at 6 and don't want him to bat anywhere else

    Agree on both counts - always hated Vaughan opening (and Bell, for that matter, though thankfully he's only done it in one Test) and Bell surely has to stay at six now.

    The other option to Tres that I've seen mooted (by Mike Selvey in the Guardian IIRC) is Bopara coming in with Vaughan opening. Presumably Bell would push up to 3 for the captain.

    Strauss looks in rank bad touch just now tho, so must be living on borrowed time.

    As said, though, Vaughan opening and Bell at three are both terrible ideas. Not sure why Bopara deserves to come in ahead of Shah, either.

    The idea has merit because Bopara is in good touch, I'm not sure how well Owais Shah is going but Bopara has been churning out the runs for Essex. Of course I would have Shah in my side at #3 before I brought Bopara in at #6.

    Shah's been churning-out the runs for years, Bopara for a couple of months.

    And Shah has an excellent Test debut to his credit. If Bopara usurped him right now it'd be almost as bad as Katich losing-out to Symonds in 2003\04.

    shah has only made 1 hundred and 1 fifty in 9 first class innings this season, hasn't done much of note in the longer form since the first test at lords. billy godleman has been middlesex most impressive batsman this season, outshining both shah and joyce.

    I realise that Shah has been the better player over the course of his career, I'm just mentioning that he isn't in particularly good form at the moment, while Bopara has been in the runs recently, thus lending some merit to the idea that Bopara could get a Test cap.
