    Not sure really what to think. The names , probably confirm what we already know: None of us have any idea what Peter Moores is thinking. Can't believe that Hoggard and Solanki are in that list. And the others im not to sure about either. Only 14 men in that squad so it isnt the 15 I originally thought. The other intersting thing about the list is that its in batting order (and yes Matt Prior is at the top). Not a move I'd back , (hes been found out before at the top of the order).

    Lets hope the Cricinfo squad looks nothing like the actual squad.

    My Kirtley shout thinking about it , isn't as daft as it sounds. With Moores' Sussex connection who knows. I certainly don't want to see Jimmy Anderson in there yet.
    Cripes, that's obscene. Sadly, these people usually have some sort of information to make suggestions like that. Hoggard fits, of course, with the above names of Kirtley, Shah and Harmison in the "we've seen plenty and no thanks" camp. Solanki, well, I've never rated him but he undoubtedly got a poor deal in his most recent (third and fourth, combined) comings. His record as an opener against ODI-standard sides is surprisingly semi-decent (average of 30, even if his first-chance average in said position reveals a truer picture). Could it seriously be being thought to pick him to open again?

    Gidman... as TT says... just no, please. Next Rikki Clarke here we come.

    I've also put this in the WI thread, but here's the England squad.

    1 Paul Collingwood (Durham, capt), 2 James Anderson (Lancashire), 3 Ian Bell (Warwickshire), 4 Stuart Broad (Leicestershire), 5 Alastair Cook (Essex), Dimitri Mascarenhas (Hampshire), 7 Monty Panesar (Northamptonshire), 8 Kevin Pietersen (Hampshire), 9 Liam Plunkett (Durham), 10 Matt Prior (Sussex), 11 Owais Shah (Middlesex), 12 Ryan Sidebottom (Nottinghamshire), 13 Jonathan Trott (Warwickshire), 14 Michael Yardy (Sussex)

    No place for Benning, no Strauss either - seems a surfeit of top order batsmen (shouldn't see cook and bell opening together which means we get Prior up top - then at three we get either Trott, shah and the other of Bell/Cook. I reckon they'll probably play one of them out of position at 6 though or open with Bell & Cook. Could drop Pietersen down one i guess, maybe

    Prior
    Cook
    Bell
    Trott
    Pietersen
    Collingwood(c)
    Mascarenhas
    Plunkett
    Broad/Sidebottom
    Anderson
    Panesar

    I think it's a good squad, probably the best available without Trescothick. Mascarenhas is a good selection, as is Trott. Interesting to see Strauss dropped, probably the right decision considering his poor form in the tests.

    My starting XI would be

    Prior
    Cook
    Bell
    Pietersen
    Trott
    Collingwood
    Yardy/extra bowler
    Mascarenhas
    Sidebottom/Plunkett
    Anderson
    Panesar

    Can't really decide who to play at 7, I think Mascarenhas would be too high at 7, so I would consider Yardy to play as a batsman who can offer some spin. I think it's too early for Broad, so I would play Sidebottom.

    In that case, move Bell down to 6 and Collingwood up to 5

    Prior and Cook at the top , thats sorted.

    At 3. Well it could be Bell , Trott , or Pietersen. Although in saying that I do expect all three to play. But I wouldn't be surprised if the top 6 looked like this.

    1. Cook
    2. Prior
    3. Trott
    4. Pietersen
    5. Collingwood
    6. Bell

    I know guys like Boycott have suggested Pietersen at three , but I get the feeling he'll retain his space at four.

    Interestingly , no Dalrymple (Is he injured?). I would have had him ahead of Yardy. But I reckon that Mascarenhas will play. Probably at number 7.

    I think Moores' will play four bowlers. Which means that Plunkett will play. Which Im not to happy with , but the four bowlers thing makes sense.

    Bottom 5:

    7. Mascarenhas
    8. Plunkett
    9. Broad
    10. Sidebottom
    11. Panesar

    Im surprised that they didn't pick someone like Benning/Maddy , for the 20/20's alone. Especially without Flintoff , the batting order lacks impotes (sp). But thats how things are sometimes.

    Overall a good squad. I would have had it a bit differently (wouldn't we all) , and I'm sure if Flintoff and Bopara were fit , it would have a slightly different feel.

    At least Yardy's only been hopeless once, though - Clarke's done it 3 times!

    Ditto. I was of the opinion that the selectors just didn't fancy him. Thankfully, they showed some sense in picking a very good and economical OD bowler.

    TBH, it's been a combination of that and one other thing - this is the first season since 2004 that he's been bowling well. His form in 2005 and 2006 was poor and I didn't really want him picked then.

    Now that he appears to be going well again, though, I'm ecstatic. Just a shame Mark Ealham's chances are now gone.

    Wow, they actually picked Mascarenhas - top stuff. Nice to see Trott there too. Fairly similar to my squad - Broad in for Tremlett, Yardy in for Benning and Shah in for Allenby (I certainly excepted the first and last of those though). 14 players and not 15, too, so no place for Dalrymple.

    as good as it will probably get for now, great to see trott and mascarenhas get a go. hugely let down benning isn't in the squad though, just doesn't look like enough firepower in the batting to me.
