I mentioned playing at Lord's but really I mean just a standard ODI good batting track.


OK ...Hmm. Tricky. Might imply it will be rough for all bowlers...

I need to break this deadlock , eh ? I'm going to leave out Tredwell then a little reluctantly as I think I want a fourth pace man and we do have Root and KP to bowl a bit of off spin for variety.

I'll leave this until the weekend.

I think the balance is ok actually, with Woakes in the side.

Wonder if this side could win a WC?

OK, time to call time. Our all time ODI XI is:
Gooch
Trescothick
Root
Pietersen
Collingwood
Buttler
Flintoff
Woakes
Swann
Gough
Anderson

Tredwell

So three of the present ODI side, often called England's best ever.

Thanks for your votes.
