    Cobb cannot bowl, if he wasn't captaining I highly doubt that he'd be bowling.

    As many wickets as Shakib too, crazy.

    Yeah crowds have been excellent in T20 this year from what I gather, plenty of sell outs and 10k plus crowds. Josh Cobb had some game, but don't rate him as anymore than a decent county player.

    What would everyones England T20 side be as of now?
    I'd go:
    Michael Lumb
    Alex Hales
    Kevin Pietersen
    Luke Wright
    Eoin Morgan
    Ben Stokes
    Jos Buttler
    Chris Woakes
    Graeme White (sensational T20 campaign this year 17 and going under 5.7 per over for the whole tournament!)
    Reece Topley
    Jade Dernbach

    Plenty of power hitting, 6 guys who can bowl with variation of left arm seam and spin.

    Hales
    Wright
    Pietersen
    Trego
    Morgan
    Buttler +
    Bopara
    Swann
    Briggs
    Finn (Azharullah if eligible)
    Dernbach

    Stokes 12th


    As a random aside, why did White swap from Northants to Notts between the 7th and 8th of July? Played a T20 at Taunton on the 7th for Northamptonshire, then started a CC game on the 8th in London for Nottinghamshire.

    I know it's just not the done thing to play Jimmy, but his competition isn't Sidebottom anymore FFS, it's Dernbach.

    In fairness to Dernbach (words I never thought I'd utter), he's actually a decent T20 option and he's performed in the domestic comp this year. With Anderson's obvious importance in the longest form, I don't have an issue with using Dernbach ahead of him in T20.

    I would like to see them giving Willey a go. Has bowled well this year and is a hard-hitting bat. Would much rather go with Briggs and rest Swann too. these injury problems have clearly not been totally cleared up, I wouldn't mind him not playing short-form at all.

    When are any international T20s? Between 10 Ashes Tests? There's as much chance of Jimmy playing as there is him walking on the moon.

    I'd be amazed if Jimmy plays any other international cricket other than tests versus Australia until next summer. No need to risk him in one dayers or T20's. Let Bresnan and Finn play the majority of those games with other bowlers to make the numbers up. Broad to play as and when depending on his fitness.

    Carberry since he decided to reinvent himself for the short forms has played well for Hampshire this season. Very brutal square of the wicket and you can tell he's put some decent thought into his approach to the game. Still a bit lacking against spin. Unfortunately for him Hales, Lumb and Wright have done decently at the top of the order for England and have also improved their games and I wouldn't want to drop any of them.

    Would be good for England to have the variation of a left arm fast bowler. Guess there is Topley, Willey, Gurney or Liddle. Don't think any are that amazing. Topley has been near the top of the wickettakers the last two years. Gurney the quickest. Willey the best batsman. Topley and Willey were around the England performance setup this winter so they're definitely been looked at. Probably not quite good enough at the moment but one might make a squad if England rest a few.

    Indeed left-arm seamers do seem to do a job, still think it's a shame Sidearse didn't stay as a t20 specialist for England.

    Just makes sense in a game where people need to hit from the start to mess about with the angle of delivery. Obviously if you have decent bowlers to do it. LidL been a bit found out this year I think, but still would be happy with any of those four in the squad.

    Even Wagg and Rob Taylor have taken wickets this year, but they're probably not going to make it for England. Even though I don't think I've seen Taylor play. Scottish though.

    Yes I don;t think Liddle is good enough either, just included him in the list because he's always towards the top of the list in the T20. Yes I saw Taylor play a little while ago. Looks strong with a decent run up ... and then bowls at about 70mph fairly straight with the keeper up so I wouldn't be putting any hopes into him yet. Shame that county cricket is such that is often better to do that than really put effort in and bowl mid 80s.

    Topley and WIlley are the obvious prospects. Topley with the height, swing and bowls some decent cutters. Willey with the wippy action and the batting. Gurney might be the guy they were to go with if they had to pick one at the end of the season imo as he is a bit more developed.

    Swann isn't a very good T20 (limited overs in general really) bowler, and Dernbach is a good T20 bowler. His problem is that whilst his economy rate in T20 is nearly the same as most other top quick bowlers in ODI's is obviously embarrasing.. White was on loan to Northants until Notts saw how well he was bowling. Willey is a decent prospect, not a bit fan of Gurney. Seems a pretty straight up and down bowler. Finn over Woakes is probably the correct shout on reflection. Trego is a big talent, was him or Stokes for me.

    Well, that's more a side that I want to be going forward towards the next World T20. They can pick whoever they want for the T20's v Australia this year. Anyway, the idea of Anderson not playing because of the tests doesn't really hold when the more injury prone Broad will be captaining.

    Warwickshire Somerset tonight. Should be a real good game because both teams need to win to go through.

    Can't see Glos doing Durham a favour by beating Glamorgan. We've been trash this season in the t20.

    Yeah, really looking forward. Just wish they'd stop focusing on the Ashes in the buildup.
