    no real shocks left out, most have a decent chance of making it if they put in great performances before the WC, some like Harwood, Birt, McDonald, Marsh, North etc... will really need something special but its not impossible they could make it...

    Not sure about the 15, but the following 13 will most likely be in the squad

    Ricky Ponting TAS 32
    Adam Gilchrist WA 35
    Andrew Symonds QLD 31
    Brett Lee NSW 30
    Glenn McGrath NSW 36
    Michael Hussey WA 31
    Michael Clarke NSW 25
    Brad Hogg WA 35
    Shane Watson QLD 25
    Brad Haddin NSW 29
    Phil Jaques NSW 27
    Nathan Bracken NSW 29
    Mitchell Johnson QLD 25

    No idea about the other two. Only question mark might be Haddin, but a backup keeper would be nice and he's a good OD batsman now anyway. The other two spots will be decided in the coming CB series or domestic form.

    How can you not take Bracken?

    He took the second most wickets in international cricket behind Masrafe Mortaza, and with a higher strike rate and a better average. Bracken should replace Voges or Hopes in that squad.

    Player Country Overs Mdns Runs Wkts Avg

    Mashrafe Bin Mortaza* Bangladesh 237.4 26 1003 49 20.47
    Bracken, N W* Australia 194.4 19 866 46 18.83
    Abdur Razzak* Bangladesh 232.0 19 810 45 18.00

    That's right IMO, except that White will be in there for someone. Presumably it'll be either Haddin or Jaques.

    Does he deserve a place? Haddin and Jaques serve as cover for Gilchrist and Hayden, respectively. Correct me if I'm wrong but White is a leg-spinning, batting all-rounder.
    The squad already has cover for the seamers (another seamer), Hogg (another seamer) and the middle-order batsmen (Jaques). I suppose White would be cover for Watson then.
