Wonder which England will turn up. Both did on Sunday.
BDers know the way.
They will be targeting English bus with pebbles.
Will the bus arrive on time?

Bob Willis's XI
Inclined to agree if the pitch is taking spin given there's no Pietersen, although Colly can do a job with the ball whatever the pitch is doing so I'd probably stick him in for Yardy and bump him ahead of Prior
As for the opening vacancy going to Trott, I don't think it'll disrupt him too much, I hoped he would get that spot from the start of the tournament but the KP option was chosen. I wouldn't be too concerned should they opt for Bell either at this stage with Trott looking at home at three.
I like Bopara at four, chance to build an innings and get set before an onslaught towards the end, ideally.
I suppose Shahzad would be the obvious one to replace Broad, though I am a fan of Tremlett and wonder how the Bangladeshis would deal with the extra bounce he would offer.

I had a dream that BD score 158 a/o and Eng chased it down, scoring 160/2, basically breezing through victory.
I also dream Ireland beat England the night before it actually happened.
So yea. Not optimistic here at all.
Can't see any problems for England here. Bangladesh have been a complete joke so far and unlike Ireland, they don't even have a county standard batting line-up, merely two players of quality, the rest are complete nonentities. Only way I could see Bangladesh getting home is for those aforementioned two players to fire and their spinners then to choke England but if England bat first, then that should be game.
Feel free to dig this up when Bangladesh win.
The first time in the tourney that England do it the easy way , Swann to take a bagfull.
THis will be a close one too.
