    By that logic, Watson shouldn't be playing, nor should Mahmood, Katich, Munaf or Harmison. Second chances not your style, Marcus?

    Agreed totaly, i really hate the way Lewis gets completely ignored by everyone.

    What's he done wrong? He was our best bowler by a mile against Pakistan, he got a hell of a lot better figures than Mahmood all the way through the series and gets ignored by everyone then when Mahmood takes 2 wickets in the last match (as opposed to Lewis' 1-27 of ten) he gets the headline and everyone goes on about how amazing he is.

    Lewis deserves his chance, he's the only one of the current England bowlers that can bowl a consistent line and length which is what we need in ODIs.

    And to anyone who wants Katich in the Aus side over Hayden, ask yourself this- Who would England rather see opening the batting against them on Sunday? Matthew Hayden or Simon Katich?

    I don't know how on earth Katich is veiwed as being over Hayden right now.

    Wasim Akram: The most sKiLlFuL bowler in history!

    Mcgrath said he is fond of the genius "Akram would power through the crease and do whatever he wanted with the old and new ball"

    Allan Border "If I ever get a chance to be reborn as a cricketer, I would want to be Wasim"

    Richards, Tendulkar and Waugh described Akram as the most dangerous bowler they had ever faced.

    With windies in the group, i would say india and Australia could easily walk to the semi-finals......this group isnt hard to predict. Unless Chris Gayle has something special for us, we might see a upset, u never know.

    Well Watson opened in the warm-up so maybe the selectors see him as opener option for the time being. I dont think Watson's bowling will struggle that much, the pitch & conditions in malaysia look fairly similar to India so i think his bowling will go ok.

    Don't under-rate England, they may have a poor ODI record but they have a great work ethic and could easily upset someone, they managed to keep a full-strenght Pakistan side 2-2 with a weakened side of there own just recently which was a superb effort IMO.

    Australia are the only side who one can safely say will qualify for sure, India's form of late has been poor & the Windies are extremely unpredictable.

    Yea i know his ER is high and is proned to bowling erratic spells, but he showed in the latter part of the ODI's in England this year that once he gets it right he can be very effective. It will be a close decision on who England pick between Mahmood/Lewis 2moro morning but i figure it will be Mahmood since fletcher and the selectors have showed even through his stuggles in the ODI's recently they have great belief in the bloke.

    I'm predicting a few big defeats for England with atleast one competitive game, more than likely against the West Indies. Australia and India will probably qualify unless Gayle and Sarwan have something to say about it.

    Watson will probably play the first game, how long he lasts will depend on how well he does. I dont think his bowling will be used as much as it would elsewhere, Symonds and Clarke will bowl more then usual i would expect.

    When defending Mahmood's selection in the England squad, he had said the following:

    So it is a bit surprising he cannot understand your anguish and Sressanth's non selection regardless of his record. You gave a similar (if not the same) reason in your remark for why you felt Sreesanth should have been selected:

    Umm no?I'd say Australia and West Indies. England are crap in ODIs and the WI have India in the palm of their hands.

    India wins toss and decides to field. Freddy says England would have bowled any way.
