    Why on earth you would have James Marshall, Stephen Fleming and Chris Martin in a 20/20 squad I don't know

    I would have Fleming in 20/20. No problem

    Good to see the inclusion of guys like Scott, Redmond and Elliott. Otherwise it's basically the usual suspects.

    McGlashan and Marshall are just wastes of space in there. Might as well have just named 28 players for all the use they'll be.

    In fact, they should have named 29. Replace one of the above with ole Heathy.

    Yeah, can't see the need for 3 wicketkeepers. Why do you need an initial squad of 30 for a bloody Hit & Giggle WC anyway?!

    I think you're being very kind to McGlashan by calling him a keeper. He's all-round poor in my opinion. Stu Mills or Bevan Griggs would be much better selections. I don't understand the continued fascination with picking McGlashan for 20:20 squads.

    The other interesting thing is as to who has been left out. No Big Jesse, so we can assume Redmond, Brrrrrrooom and Scott are now ahead of him in the pecking order (no surprise given his big mouth!)

    The other big surprise, of course, is no Heath. For shame.

    I wonder if Big Jesse will spit the dummy again ?

    No Tuffey or Kyle Mills either

    He is innovate and dinky, therefore he must be a good Twenty20 player.

    Scott is an opening bowler, so I doubt him and Ryder are competing for the same spot. Redmond and Broom are both gun players though.

    Mills would be a decent 20/20 player imo but he's injured anyway. No Tuffey is no great surprise but you would think he would have got in ahead of some of the others there

    Mills would get slaughtered, he can't bowl at the death in ODI cricket and doesn't have very good variation. Tuffey doesn't deserve to be in there, given how dire he was at the World Cup, but I am surprised he wasn't named in the squad.
