    A few randoms in there. Milne, How, Patel, Brownlie, Bracewell, Watling, McKay, Stewart, Elliott, Arnel. Not really sure if they've done enough, but will probably either in the HRV cup or in their last few ODI appearances. I'm sure some of these names will be cut.

    You could certainly say Milne hasn't done enough - he hasn't even made his List A debut yet!

    Obviously a talent, though.

    No Hopkins - if he'd have had a good tour of India I'd imagined that would've been enough for a spot in the final squad, so thats certainly a massive fall given hes not even in the preliminary 30. A few bolters like Woodcock, Milne and Brownlie but I doubt whether theres much chance of those guys making the final squad. No Aaron Redmond is the biggest surprise IMO.

    Why? This is ODI cricket, not T20I.

    Woodcock, Milne and Brownlie are all in the 20:20 squad to play Pakistan as well. As long as Woodcock goes alright, I reckon he'll get in the squad ahead of Jeetan.

    I'm just surprised that he couldn't find a spot in a 30-man preliminary squad, despite looking in good touch in the domestic competitions this year and having prior (and relatively recent) international experience, but a host of uncapped players did make the cut. Milne for instance hasn't even played a 50 over match at domestic level. I'm not saying I'd have picked Redmond for the eventual squad but I certainly expected him to be on the provisional list.

    Don't disagree about Milne but Redmond hasn't really been up to chuff in OD cricket for his whole career (see list A average of 23) and his technique is not suited to 50 over cricket (but he manages to do well in T20s - go figure).

    I can understand though about how he should've made the 30 man squad but IMO out of the batsmen there he isn't really better than any of them.

    Adam Milne He hasn't even made his List A debut yet ffs. I can see it now though, he's a couple of good 20/20 performances away from the ODI team and he's a couple of good ODI performances away from the Test squad. Joke (Although the test matches are played before the ODI's so we should be safe)

    How Trent Boult hasn't made this squad staggers believe also, espeically when guys like Bracewell, Milne, Bennett and Arnel are cracking the team.
