    The England Thread

    Here we go guys, about a year to go and we still have no idea of our strongest ODI lineup. Hmmm......

    We need an opening partnership.

    Trescothick's there, yes, but who do we have to go with him?

    Strauss is best in the middle order, Vaughan's crap, Solanki's not up to it...

    Prior means playing 2 keepers, and he had a pretty poor series in Pakistan.

    Then, I'd have Vaughan out, but that looks rather unlikely.

    And who do we want as spinner? Giles? Blackwell? Does Monty deserve a chance?

    I think that Tresco, Strauss, Pietersen, Collingwood, Flintoff, Harmison have their places secure.

    But who needs to go around them?

    Time will tell...
    Or something.

    Vaughan's only played nine ODIs as an opener - why don't we try him there and Strauss at 3? At least with Tresco becoming increasingly more of an accumulator rather than a destroyer, he'd be able to go out and play his shots without confusing himself trying to work out how he should be playing.

    My suggestion (now that the SuperSub has thankfully gone):

    Trescothick
    Vaughan*
    Strauss
    Pietersen
    Flintoff
    Collingwood
    G Jones+
    Giles
    Plunkett
    Harmison
    S Jones

    2/5 vowels correct...

    We have one batsman who has great difficulty working singles in the ODI side already - we don't need another for 2007.

    I dunno, Blackwell seemed a good OD player in Pakistan.

    I'd take Giles over him though.

    If Giles isn't the same as before he might be vaguely useful for a change.

    Granted he's never going to bowl a team out....
    but in ODIs when you need someone to not give many runs away....he's good at that
