Its going to be interesting who is named on Friday. Firstly the issue of captaincy . Which I personally would like to see go to Pietersen. And I think the whole Collingwood being favourite doesn't make sense. Moores has said nothing , and because everyone wants him to be it doesn't mean at all that it will be.
With regards to the squad , Im assuming something like 15 names are going to be on the list.
Names were definatly going to see:
-Monty Panesar (Unless Moores feels that he doesn't want Panesar as a ODI player , possible),
And I think the fact that theres only 4 names in that list , makes fridays selection so interesting. Sidebottom is very likely to be selected. But after that we're second guessing Moores. Trescothick could find himself opening with Cook (anyone thought about Tresco as captain? , although I think I remember him saying he didn't want to be England captain at all). Loye , Benning , Maddy have been talked up as openers , and I think Benning may get a call up.
As for the rest of the side , its a case of unless we can work out whats going on in Peter Moores' head , we don't know , but I wouldn't be surprised to see a few surprise names in the mix.
My Ideal Squad (I'm Guessing theres 15 players , but I might be wrong) :
-Kevin Pietersen (C)
-Jonothan Trott (Averaging 88 in FP Trophy this season)
