    Bell to 4000 ODI runs then. Harsh to drop Root after such a promising start but the new guy is always the easiest one to drop even if the decision is wrong.

    Didn't really notice him, which suggests he did OK. Is he a long-term bet as England's ODI keeper though? He doesn't do it for Somerset very often. If Kieswetter is out of the frame, and they're not going back to Prior, perhaps the England management should ask Somerset to give Buttler a few games behind the sticks, even if Kieswetter is also playing.

    Simple.
    Well it's not that simple, as KPs record at 4 recently is shocking, and I would still like his aggression in the top 2. Bell is hideous down the order too. No-one really bowls in that line-up either.

    I'd still keep Root in and ditch Bell for Kp as opener.

    Having said that well done Ian, much rather have these problems, rather than WhoTF do we pick, they're all ****e.

    Who would you advocate dropping instead of Root? Look, I was far from happy when Bell was recalled to the side, but there's noway you can drop him now. He's been our best ODI batsman since his recall.

    When KP returns he will be the banana..

    Well played Bell boy
    And we still haven't walked in the glow of each other's majestic presence.

    Happy for Root to concentrate on Tests for the time being, tbh. He has plenty of time, could come back in for Trott in a year or two.

    Christ, Morgan made that six look easier than playdoh. Reminds me of how I loved him a few years ago.

    I'd be loath to play Cook, Bell and Trott in the same top 4 so seeing as Bell has tonned up here and Cook is skipper i'd continue to leave Trott out for now and let Root continue his development. Just my opinion, doubt anyone else will agree.

    Ashwin looking ordinary. Not sure what Dhoni is trying to do here with his overs anyway.

    And so he should after getting so set. That was the thing though; 40* off 76 is a perfectly fine start for an opener chasing a low total as long as he makes use of that platform to accelerate and make a big score. The problem with Bell doing that of course is his propensity to throw it around between 40 and 70, so I could see the merit in the criticism, but the start was always going to be fine if he didn't then get out.

    On ya Morgs. Still our best ODI player by a long way IMO. Dropping him for Root would be beyond mad.

    Runs coming at a torrent now. 2-3, you'd take that for a side missing so many key players. Going to be quite tough on guys like Tredwell to have to step aside.
