    Good win for England this.

    Need to sort out that top order form and soon. Conditions were not great batting first but many loose shots.

    I'm not sure he's a better one-day batsman than Cook right now but he's really our only middle-order bat with much of a record there. When we talk about how Bell or KP need to open after much testing lower down, it puts his achievements there in perspective.
    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.

    England's side looks far more settled than India.

    Except for 3/4 slots almost all the other positions are up for grab.

    For India or England?
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Surely he means India. Everyone knows that Broad, Swann and probably Anderson will be straight back in by the time the world cup is around and that will make us much stronger than the popgun attack we had in this series.

    My CT side

    Cook
    KP
    Trott
    Root/Bell
    Morgan
    Buttler
    Bresnan
    Swann
    Broad
    Anderson
    Finn

    Bresnan selection depends on his fitness, obviously, though I wouldn't just replace him with Woakes as then there'd be 2 fast bowlers in the side we'd have to protect from the death along with Anderson, who ought to be a weapon we shouldn't ignore at home. Four seamers seems the way to go - chasing a low total after taking new-ball wickets has been the way we've won all these home series over the last few years.

    I can't think of another front line bowler who could reasonably bat at #7, other than perhaps Woakes who isn't suitable as a poor man's Anderson. If Bresnan isn't bowling well enough to demand a proper spot it'll be someone who contributes with the bat first and formost. I'd rather not turn to Patel, instead playing Bopara or maybe Stokes if he's having a good season. Harsh on Tredwell but two offies in the side doesn't seem reasonable.

    I think Woakes could do a serviceable job in England as the 5th bowler and number 7 bat. Sure it would leave us short of death options, but if Bresnan isn't performing then he's hardly going to be much better, and I'd rather Woakes than Dernbach or Meaker.

    When KP returns he will be the banana..

    England will still remain pop gun in ODIs.

    They don't really care about that format

    Yeah, that's why we've appointed a separate boss, a separate batting coach, and have been number 1 at the format recently.
    Do I contradict myself?

    Well he's hardly going to say he can't give a toss about that series is he. More an expression of hope surely?
