    Who to pick between Bell vs. Prior to open is an interesting problem. Now that England have dropped Davies, they should probably use this series to give a few matches to Bell and Strauss to open the batting.

    Very strange selection in Prior - excellent keeping during the Ashes but he required a huge amount of luck to get his only 2 scores

    Looks as though the selectors crapped themselves with Davies inability against the short ball

    Shame it doesnt get above knee height in India

    Can't see why Prior has been chosen ahead of Davies. Still it isn't a terrible squad, most have been part of it a while and know their role in the side.

    Not really. Prior has failed as an opener while Bell has a decent enough record there. No brainer.

    I don't see Prior fitting in that well in the middle order either like a Dhoni for example.. I'd think his best role would be to open and play his shots early on.

    Davies has been treated a bit crappy here. Given a few chances and played one great innings with a few good starts in there too, couldn't have asked too much more from a newbie. S/R is 108, too, which I thought was the sort of thing they wanted from our openers.

    Much much much more angry about Luke Wright, though. Go away!

    Luke Wright has been in and around the squad pretty much since the last WC, think he was always fairly likely to go.

    Yeah, the one thing the selectors do show is faith in a squad (keeper aside but since we've played at least 4 keepers in the last 18 months there's never been an incumbent really) - so in spite of everyone's moans, Wright was always going to make the squad.

    Prior? Strange stuff. At least he's in form... I presume they've got him into the squad for Friday too?

    Quite happy with the rest of it. I know Wright is out of form, but a bits and pieces player can come in handy and I'm not sure who else fits the bill.

    How's Prior been going for Vic in the Big Bash dealy?

    So did Cook and Tremlett. Prior brings aggression according to Flower, thatís why Davies SR is better.

    About the only thing I can come up with is that they fancy Prior's ability against spin. So will be ridiculous if they open with him.
