England's 30 man squad announced
Obviously James doesn't consider us Poms worthy of a thread of our own as he wrote the article! :p
James Anderson, Ian Bell, Ian Blackwell, Ravi Bopara, Tim Bresnan, Stuart Broad, Andrew Flintoff, Glen Chapple, Rikki Clarke, Paul Collingwood, Alastair Cook, James Dalrymple, Ashley Giles, Darren Gough, Stephen Harmison, Matthew Hoggard, Geraint Jones, Ed Joyce, Jon Lewis, Alex Loudon, Mal Loye, Sajid Mahmood, Graham Onions, Kevin Pietersen, Liam Plunkett, Chris Read, Vikram Solanki, Andrew Strauss, Marcus Trescothick, Michael Yardy
Gough's inclusion the obvious headline grabber. I don't have a problem with it at all, myself. Reflects nothing more than the absolute paucity of other options.
Yardy is an interesting one too; I saw his part-time SLA stuff deployed in the 20/20s & thought it decidedly decent. Obviously the powers-that-be concur.
No Monty tho. Is there a case to be made for him? He's certainly economical enough.
