    Most of the second string would've been uncapped wouldn't they? Outside of those in the squad or rested, who has been capped? Onions, Tremlett and Shahzad?

    The issue with the ****ness of our bowling attack is there's no obvious alternative. There's nobody banging the door down begging to be picked ala Buttler with the bat.

    But even Briggs, Borthwick, Meaker, Woakes etc...have played ODI's.

    I can't think of who the spinner would be. Kerrigan?

    I thought Briggs, Meaker and Woakes were in the squad?

    I think people have a different definition of "second string" to you; the first string doesn't consist of 10 bowlers just because a heap are being rested/injured at the moment.

    Yeah, they've all be capped. You'd be looking at a seriously badly attack if you were to just look at the uncaps.

    Would probably look something like this

    7. James Harris
    8. Chris Wood
    9. Toby Roland Jones
    10. Simon Kerrigan
    11, Matt Coles

    I'm not sure someone like Mark Davies would go great against Dhoni and co in India....

    Indeed. My idea of second string would be the best available bowling attack, not consisting of the usual 5 bowlers. I.e. Finn, Anderson, Bresnan, Broad and Swann

    I agree with this definition. But then GF doesn't need to 'come up' with anything. It's the one playing in this game, basically.

    And Dhoni kept bowling him for some reason when even Raina and then Dinda in the death were doing far better.

    Seriously, not enough has been said in this thread and the analysis i am seeing on TV about what was one of the worst captaincy performances in a while from Dhoni.

    I reckon Topley would get in even though he has hardly played so far.

    Napier would be an old pick.

    Chris Rushworth is pretty much always the standout in 40-50 over stuff for Durham.

    And at the end of the day South Africa's total is the same as England.

    Well no, because I'd have Finn and probably Bresnan in my first string.

    But even a 3rd string attack will probably feature players who have been capped as well.

    Broad and Swann are by far our best ODI bowlers, and the only reason Anderson and Panesar aren't playing is because this series wasn't deemed important by the powers that be. The fact that the squads for the NZ tour were selected before even the tour games started means that everyone playing knows their performance here has no impact on selection whatsoever.

    You can't use who hasn't been capped in ODIs as a measure of depth because you end up scraping the barrel, because for the above reasons everyone worth talking about gets a limited overs game thrown at them sooner or later.

    And besides you're all forgetting the mighty Rafiq.
    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.
