    Predict your nation's line up for their first match in the 2015 World Cup

    Simple as it sounds. Predict your nation's line up for their first match in the WC. If anyone gets it exactly right, they win all the glory they can hold.


    - Finch
    - Watson
    - S. Marsh
    - Clarke
    - Bailey
    - Maxwell
    - Haddin
    - Faulkner
    - Johnson
    - Agar
    - McKay

    Throwing Agar in there as a rough shot. He's marketable, and we know how much CA value that. Plus, I reckon he'd actually go ok in ODIs.

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

    picking Henry to displace one of the bowlers by that stage, tbh. Probably McCleneghan.

    that will be what's picked. Jesse won't get back or stay back in for long. I'd pick Watling at five and give him the gloves but it won't happen either. Bennett, Henry or Milne will rain on my prediction parade if one of the above seamers is unfit.

    I'd go this but would have Bennett as back up instead of Munro.
    Direbirds FTW!

    My first draft had Jess in it, but he's only got 7-8 months to prove the worth of giving it one last one last go.

    I'd also love to think Dan could bowl on basically one leg, as he did in the UK, but I can't see it.
