    New ODI Championship table

    The New ODI Championship table has been released with Australia first, New Zealand second and Sri lanka third. Surprisingly England are eighth, what's even more startling is that Kenya is ahead of Bangladesh.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Yes no complaints from me - last 12 months have been pretty poor for us - and in some ways rain has helped!

    Why is it surprising that Kenya are ahead of Bangladesh?
    Just look at how the Kenyans did in the last world cup compared to the Bangladeshis(who, I think, lost every match)

    Bangladesh' last win against an ODI nation: 1999 WC - Pakistan.

    Kenya's last win against an ODI nation: 2003 WC - Sri Lanka (wasn't it? unsure)

    Think that explains it pretty well.

    Zimbabwe doesn't count any more? Both teams' most recent victory is against Zimbabwe.

    Well at least one of our teams is actually doing well. Now I wish it would translate to Tests as well.

    I think the bits and pieces players are bad for English cricket. There was a period where the English blindly followed Australias policy of seperate test and ODI teams , and paid for it .They seemed to have learnt from it , but are making the same mistakes again.

    I thought NZ a few years back would have been a good example of why playing a side with only 2 specialist batsmen & the rest bits & pieces players is a bad idea.

    What are they going to do though? Drop a couple? I wouldnt!
    And anyway, didnt they say that about Australia a few years back? Hasnt really happened that way.

    You know what - I'm thinking we don't actually KNOW how to play the OD game...they seem to be afraid to chase targets and often opt to bat first - although this is good if you have a strong batting lineup, we don't. We have our top 4 being our best batsman. Then the bits and pieces and then the tail. What might be an idea is to get a pinch hitter to open with a "blocker" opener. This way, although risky, could take advantage of the 15 overs limit and also we would have a decent middle order.

    So my idea of a side would be:

    Carter/Bresnan -esque pinch-hitters
    Trescothick
    Strauss
    Vaughan
    GO Jones
    Pietersen - when available
    Collingwood/Bell
    Giles
    Harmison
    Hoggard
    Mahmood/Napier/Tremlett

    Those would make up the 11 - somehow...

    Completely over-rated if you believe Craig.

    The last 18 months count for nothing.

    eh?

    Care to give me a heads up what you mean?

    I said I am glad New Zealand are 2nd in the table, and I wish it would that sort of ODI form would translate into the Test arena.

    Unless you posted it in the wrong thread?
