    I've seen a bit of Will Young and Jacob Duffy now. They look quite talented but haven't seen the rest.

    We're in with Pakistan, Afghanistan and Scotland. Could be a pool of death with Afghanistan's quick rise through the senior ranks.

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Interesting they decided two guys played their way out of the squad I guess. Could be 'Sodhi's clearly our #1 spinner, if you don't offer NcCullum-type batting you don't play' as much as anything with Walker. 20 overs, 1/82 in three games, got killed by Sodhi is all. Nick Kelly had a 62* off 68 then four failures, dropped.

    Robbie O'Donnell is a very solid young player, possibly cracked it on the basis of club form and previous efforts at U-19 tournament. Seems composed beyond his years.

    I honestly can't think of one off the top of my head. I can't really think of one in the past either...first one that popped into my head was Bryce McGain(!).

    Only reason I say that is McGain is/was tall, kinda burst into the crease, didn't rip it prodigiously but in saying that, had the ability to on his day. Consistent groupings as well (at first-class level, clearly not at Test level)

    Sodhi is all those things. His greatest attributes are height, therefore bounce, and has a very well disguised wrong-un. Those are the sort of things that nick guys out and get a lot of catches in close, which he does. And they're also the sort of things that become weapon on more pitches - ie not just bunsen burners which we seldom play on anyway.

    He's a real prospect, and even better I think he's suited to the longer forms. And is an 8-9 batsmen, not a 10-11.

    I played against Connor Neynens last season in England, looks a very elegant batsman, played him three times last year, can only remember him really hurting us in a cup game with an 80-odd, but you could see his quality in his other knocks too.

    He bowled over here aswell, got big outswing at their place, but his bowling certainly seemed his weaker suit. Looked a very decent fielder too.

    Those are some really impressive wicket-taking deliveries. Love his wrong-un - it actually stands up as well so even if a left-hander tries and smother it, chances are it may bounce past the splice in any case.

    Too good for the right handed batsman whoever that was.

    I prefer Bracewell's action to Cummins'

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.
