    I know it's a big call to leave Bracewell out, but he really hasn't produced much since Hobart and Gillespie if fit is a genuine wicket-taker. It does lengthen our tail somewhat, but then again when was the last time Bracewell scored test runs?

    McClenaghan has shown enough in the short-form to suggest he's worth trying. A solid lad who hits the wicket hard and gets swing and seam.

    I genuinely believe that bowling attack is our best chance of taking 20 wickets. Vettori to restrict at one end and all out attack from attacking seamers at the other.

    Milne is the other consideration, but happy to settle for the above for now.
    Is Gillespie in form?

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Here's his opinion on Devcich's role in the ND limited overs team:

    So yeah, fair to say he doesn't think too highly of him as an international prospect.

    However, just a couple of weeks ago in the SA/NZ thread..

    Not too bad, seem bowling is a bit weak. Henry is bairly back for Canterbury yet, shows they like his talent which is good. But shouldnt play really. No Woodcock... Yusss
    Two games, all 14 could play if they wanted to take it that way. (No idea on the TV situ, heard Smithy say he was "looking forward to getting up there").

    I would imagine all 14 would play in the 2 games. I think they will want to see Neesham play both games with more bowling responsibility. I would imagine Broom and Devcich will split opening, while Butler and Wagner will also split, same with Bates and Henry.

    I think Rutherford, Taylor, Munro, Ronchi, Neesham, Ellis and Beard are locks to play 2 games each. Latham could possible sit out for an extra bowler

    Rutherford
    Broom - Devcich
    Latham
    Taylor
    Munro
    Ronchi
    Neesham
    Ellis
    Wagner - Butler
    Beard
    Bates - Henry

    England name their test squad tomorrow.

    Only 15 this time. Seems pretty simple. Looks like Bresnan is staying in.

    Really sucks. Bowled awful for ages. Assuming they take the 5 seamers (Anderson, Broad, Finn, Onions, Bresnan) he is likely to be the second reserve and not play, surely he is better served going to have a full preseason with Yorkshire rather than trawling through the rest of the winter with England carrying the drinks. Woakes, Harris, Meaker or Toby Roland Jones would surely gain more on a first senior test tour than Bresnan wasting his time. This seems an opportune time to rest someone mentally who isn't going to play but who has toured a lot in the last few years.

    I think England will add to the ODI squad too. It's meant to be just the one seamer but I;m guessing they're might be a couple of changes. Dernbach's form looks terminal but yet Woakes and Meaker still can't get past him - doesn't say much for their ODI bowling.

    Personally I'd like to see one of the lions guys promoted from their tour of Australia. I'd probably plump for Chris Wright or James Harris and bring Chris Wood into the lions squad.

    Kieswetter was in the initial squad but it seems pretty pointless sending him especially with Buttler and Bairstow already in the squad.

    Root wasn't in the initial squad and is lions captain for the australia team which is going on at the same time but he showed more than most of the English batsmen and has already shown more than Ian Bell has shown in his whole ODI career.

    Saying all this England are bound to continue their policy of continuity and not change anything.

    Cannot seriously believe you're continuing to peddle this after all of Dernbach's failures. He's pretty much the worst ODI bowler ever.

    Dernbach's not in the squad. I'm suggesting none of DB, Woakes or Meaker.

    Rikki Clarke has been added to the lions squad. Probably means Root added to the ODI squad.

    England almost exactly followed my guidance.

    Test
    Woakes in for Bresnan. All else as expected

    ODI
    Harris in for Meaker and Dernbach
    No Kieswetter
    Root in

    Lions
    Clarke and Jamie Overton in.

    Happy with those squads.
