    England named their squads for ODI and T20's today.

    England T20 squad

    Stuart Broad (Nottinghamshire, captain)
    Jonny Bairstow(Yorkshire)
    Tim Bresnan (Yorkshire)
    Danny Briggs (Hampshire)
    Jos Buttler (Somerset)
    Jade Dernbach (Surrey)
    Steven Finn (Middlesex)
    Alex Hales (Nottinghamshire)
    Michael Lumb (Nottinghamshire)
    Stuart Meaker (Surrey)
    Eoin Morgan (Middlesex)
    Samit Patel (Nottinghamshire)
    James Tredwell (Kent)
    Luke Wright (Sussex)

    England ODI squad

    Alastair Cook (Essex, captain)
    James Anderson (Lancashire)
    Jonny Bairstow (Yorkshire)
    Ian Bell (Warwickshire)
    Tim Bresnan (Yorkshire)
    Stuart Broad (Nottinghamshire)
    Jos Buttler (Somerset)
    Steven Finn (Middlesex)
    Craig Kieswetter (Somerset)
    Eoin Morgan (Middlesex)
    Samit Patel (Nottinghamshire)
    Graeme Swann (Nottinghamshire)
    James Tredwell (Kent)
    Jonathan Trott (Warwickshire)

    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    England Lions squad to Australia

    Joe Root (Yorkshire, captain)
    Gary Ballance (Yorkshire)
    Scott Borthwick (Durham)
    Danny Briggs (Hampshire)
    Varun Chopra (Warwickshire)
    Matthew Coles (Kent)
    Ben Foakes (Essex)
    Alex Hales (Nottinghamshire)
    James Harris (Middlesex)
    Simon Kerrigan (Lancashire)
    Toby Roland-Jones (Middlesex)
    Ben Stokes (Durham)
    James Taylor (Nottinghamshire)
    Reece Topley (Essex)
    Chris Wright (Warwickshire)

    Interestingly the Lions tour to Australia goes on at the same time as the New Zealand T20 and ODI series and their last ODI is 4 days before the start of the first test which is interesting given Root's inclusion.

    No Woakes in any of the squads. Hmm.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Will be watching the carnage at the Dunedin and Wellington tests. Hoping for a NZ win, but will take Hesson being sacked as an acceptable alternative.

    Looks like they've definitely decided Jos is the 'keeper for t20.

    Woakes dismissal seems odd, what if he did brilliantly in the ODIs in New Zealand? Or are they just not going to play him? Dirtbag left out of the ODI squad too, but he'sw probably just being rested

    You may not be able to contain your excitement, but as a New Zealand fan, I can.

    Not that there's much to contain considering recent events...

    I'm personally hoping that Woakes is in the test squad, hence him not being in the Lions squad. But I'm still surprised he isn't in the ODI's and T20I's. If you're not going to play him in New Zealand where are you going to play him?

    At least this will be a much better contest with Taylor, Ryder, and Vettori back.

    Yeah but Root is in the Lions squad.

    The only thing I can think of is that they're happy for him to play for Wellington in preparation for the Tests.

    Another hideous T20 squad.

    Root getting experience on Aussie pitches ahead of next winter I presume. Wouldn't be a shock if he misses last game to join up with the test squad in New Zealand.

    Taylor will be back, hopefully Ryder and Southee too.

    might be competitive.

    tbf, Onions is a far better bowler than the Surrey boys. And Stokes really should be blooded as an ODI player - he has the potential to be a quality player for England.

    Unless New Zealand want to only make England bat thrice, Ryder, Taylor, Vettori and Southee have to play.

    No Swann in the T20 or Pietersen in either.

    ECB managing their workloads, they just CBF or selectors looking at other options, do we think?

    Or any combo thereof?

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change
