How'd Jos' keeping go?
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.
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.

Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.
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.

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

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.
