how many of the current 1day side would you change?
India should not stop playing cricket?
First things first, you need to have more players in the top order that show some attacking intent, not just Kevin Pietersen. I think that Mal Loye should be given an extended run, he showed good initiative in the match against Australia. I think that Vaughan should bat at 3, and try to play an anchor role to stay thru the innings and accelerate at the end, which would give players like Pietersen a better opportunity to attack from the start.
Only one of Bell or Collingwood should be in the side - Collingwood probably gets the nod as he seems to be a better one day player.
Chris Read needs to be introduced into the side in place of Paul Nixon, whos keeping seems to be in the Geraint Jones school if you ask me.
Bowling seems to be OK, and if they have a decent target to defend they may get somewhere! I am looking forward to the return of Liam Plunkett and seeing how he goes against this opposition.
Want a photo where 8 players are slip players in test cricket match?
need to lose bell and collingwood good test players but need batsman who hit the ball not just get 1's and 2's we need power hitters like the aussies we simply dont have the power in themiddle order cant leave it to pieterson all the time
Is Muralitharan like Tendulkar - a choker on the big stage?
I'd like to see Paul Nixon dropped and replaced by Chris Read. Jamie Dalrymple has not been performing lately and should be supplanted by Keven Pieterson when fully fit. Ed Joyce should be given some opportunities to prove him self as he was the top-scorer in the England team against New Zealand.
If Michael Vaughan is injured, the captaincy should be taken over by Andrew Strauss, not Andrew Flintoff. Freddy plays the vital role of an all-rounder and if he was to be captain, the pressure keeps on mounting him.
The England Cricket Team can not only rely on Pieterson. The top order have to step up to the mark and post big scores.
Do you think Fear is the key?
Apparently we've used 35 one-day players in the last twelve months so finding some consistency would be a good start!
Would drop Bell and have Pietersen at three. Nixon is good as a stop gap solution but he's not going to be around in five years. He shouldn't have played and they should have given Chris Read a chance to find some form with the bat.
Would drop Ed Joyce for Michael Yardy and Mal Loye for Alastair Cook.
How to watch live world cup cricket through internet?
Strauss, Flintoff, Collingwood and Pietersen are the only four players England have who are secure of a place in the side. Vaughan is but shouldn't be, as he's a poor ODI batsman. Read must play, he can smack the ball (even if he can't build an innings) and is far better standing up than Teflon Jones. Mal Loye should have been in the side two years ago, he might go to the World Cup in lieu of anyone better. Giles and Trescothick would be perfect if they were fit, as they're not we'll have to go with Dalrymple (the only good thing to come out of England's awful ODI 2006) and Bell. Seam bowling? I reckon Jon Lewis and Collingwood could be a real handful in the Caribbean, ditto Jimmy Anderson if he slows his pace a tad. The pitches there are mostly low and slow so two spinners, two medium-pacers and one enforcer (Flintoff) is, I think, the way to go.
My team would be:
A.N. Other (Bell, Joyce or Bopara)
M.Asif could really take the place of Waseem Akram?
We need to come up with a definate batting plan and maybe try and bat 50 overs. Both dalrymple and nixon need to go they are not good enough at that level.

Indian cricket team is won world cup?? what about u say.?
I don't think we have a hope in hell at the world cup. i'm not just saying that as a knee jerk reaction to the ashes, because i think they'll get te test team sorted. The simple fact is we haven't had a good one day team for years, if ever. I think Mal Loye is a good player they should give him a good run. Reed back as keeper he's defo best one day keeper without a doubt. Dalrymple is a descent allrounder in the one day game but never ever put him in a test match. Don't let harmison anywhere near the team. Anderson and Lewis probably best of a bad lot.
my team would be
but they still won't win
