    Yeah it doesn't look a great side, but remember 31 of our best players not are not included.

    We've also had a stack of retirements recently, and most of the new talent actually made the 30 man squad, players such as Bailey, Paine et al.

    Someone who I did forget was Andy Bichel, he'd probably get a run ahead of Siddle.

    IMO Magoffin is very underrated. Nannes is a good one day bowler, McGain was leading wicket tacker last year.

    If I picked a side away from the best XI of:
    Hayden
    Watson
    Ponting
    Clarke
    Symonds
    Hussey
    Haddin
    Hopes
    Lee
    Johnson
    Bracken

    My 2nd XI
    Marsh
    Hopes
    Hodge
    Katich
    D Hussey
    White
    Ronchi
    Noffke
    Hauritz
    Tait
    Clark

    It's pretty tough to even know who the best XI currently are.
    I would like Hayden to retire from ODIs really, so if that happened Marsh would move up and Jaques would move into the 2nd team.

    Well **** me. Wouldn't have had him near it personally, suppose it shows the lack of experienced depth in the WK department. I would've thought even Crosswaithe would be there ahead of him.

    Trouble being that you can't really know who'd go and who wouldn't, so you can't really name a "XI of players who would go".

    In any case, England First XIs in ODIs are depressing enough - the fact that a Second XI would probably be stronger (if selected by me, rather than the selectors, that is) makes it just too depressing to contemplate.

    Hmm sorry mate but if you're reffering to those who played in the emerging players tournament I'd have to disagree. They did very well, thats for sure but they lost to NZ emerging players (not even an NZ A side really, though many will make it in), and lining them up against full stength ODI sides, especially top teams like India, SA, NZ and Sri Lanka, they would probably get destroyed. You have to ask the question: Can these guys match it with Murali, Steyn, Kallis, KP etc? If its a no, then you should probably just field the best team possible, not the AIS side.

    Now that I've said that the AIS will go and win the tournament.

    Presuming not all England players will go, how likely, in your opinion, is it that we'll get Plunkett and Mahmood is the same bowling attack?

    Though I can't say much, I think I might cry if Chris Martin and Iain O'Brien open up for NZ in ODIs.

    If according to dan cullen's attititude of the 30 man squad,we maybe sending an AIS squad or equivalent side to the trophy.
    Michel deighton would be a good inclusion,wonder how playing on a UK passprt last season effects his chances.
    Sajid and plunkett drain of runs you could only afford 1 of them.

    Yeah England's first team is fairly rubbish. 2nd team could be better TBH.

    For Australia
    1. Hughes
    2. Dighton
    3. Pomersbach
    4. Bailey
    5. Katich (c)
    6. Voges
    7. Hopes
    8. Paine
    9. McGain
    10. Siddle
    11. Geeves
    5-0

    Not sure if its this season or the next that he becomes available. But given that McCullum seems increasingly eager to cast himself as a specialist, it honestly can't come soon enough.
