    ***Official*** Ireland v England at Dublin

    Can anyone use their powers of foresight to predict what the lineups will be? I am especially interested to know who will open the bowling for each team and who will be the first, second and third change bowlers.

    No point risking Trott. Also gives us chance to play Taylor. Bres will play as well imo, probably in place of Patel tho

    I'd hope that Taylor is given a chance, Trott should be allowed to play late season games for Warwickshire to help their title challenge but his international summer should be over. Not essential he plays and no need to rush him back as he may struggle for form after injury.

    This one day series against India and the T20's v them and WI are ideal times to test out a few young players for the future so Stokes, Woakes and Bairstow should be involved at some stage too. If nothing else it gives them a taste of international cricket and they can see the level they need to get to long term to become part of the set up.

    Kieswetter
    Cook
    KP
    Taylor
    Morgan
    Stokes
    Patel
    Bresnan
    Broad

    Rather unconvinced by the Patel idea, I must say.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    I figured we may as well have a match thread rather than this getting lost with all the England India stuff.

    Could be a good match, I hope they get good weather for it.

    Sincerely hope that if Woakes is in the squad then he plays in this and the India ODIs.

    Last time in Ireland
    Bopara, Denly, Trott, Prior, Collingwood, Shah, Wright, Rashid, Swann, Bresnan, Sidebottom.

    Broad, Anderson and Morgan went but were rested. Our three fast bowlers need a rest so shouldn't go. Bresnan played because he wasn't in the Test team at the time.

    Ah man, gonna be on the other side of the world for this match too. I've missed every single Ireland match this year. Hope we put up a better bowling performance than what we did in this match.

    Actually, somewhere in the middle of listing the players I thought would play, I forgot this was a thread about who's going to play against Ireland, so yes they'd probably want to rest a few players after the test series.
