If Archer doesn’t make the WC I’ll be amazed - he’s just brilliant - walks into the ODI and Test teams for me

It's the age old debate of whether or not to pick your strongest 11, except this time it's not your local club, it's England.

Never have faith in the ECB to do the right thing.

I haven't seen much of him, but if he's as good as they say then we absolutely cannot leave him out. We've got the batsmen to score 300 every game and probably the best ODI squad of my lifetime, let's not f*** this up.

Hales withdrawn from WC Squad
Complete overreaction from the ECB as usual - nothing ever changes there

You would assume his place would go to one of Foakes/Vince/Denly - i’d go for Vince

I think they had little choice after the stuff with Stokes, one incident too many.

The fact he's been caught taking drugs for the SECOND time and after the Bristol incident tells me there's only one person to blame here and that's him.

Complete and utter stupidity and deserves everything he gets.

I was initially annoyed by the ECB, but I now wholly agree with you - Hales only has himself to blame

Some brutal stuff from Morgan today - clearly he isn’t taking s*** from no-one,

Good start by Archer, has to be picked for the World Cup.  The strength of depth we have is excellent in ODI, complete opposite in Test side mind.

So Durham have lost out on the final qualifying spot by virtue of having two games washed out to Lancs none. For some reason the ECB have changed the rule this year so it goes off games won instead of net run rate.

Lancs won 5 of 8 with 0.344 net r/r
Durham won 4 of 6 with 0.472 net r/r

Lancs go through. Absolutely ludicrous.

If it went on the head to head that would be fair(er) but purely games won is madness

This Eng attack really is powder puff - they need to include both Archer and Curran in place of Willey and Plunkett

I’ll give Woakes a few weeks - looks undercooked

Archer makes the squad along with Wood.

Dawson also gets in, Denly and Willey miss out. Think I would have liked to have Willey’s left arm swing although he can be very wayward at times.

For me it was between Plunkett and Willey for the final spot - would have gone for Plunkett

Don’t disagree with the rest of the squad - Dawson is a sensible choice given that either Moeen or Rashid could pull up on the morning of a match - so he’s a wise pick

Shame Vince hasn’t made a big knock - he’s so frustrating - has all the talent

All in all this is the best squad Eng have ever had - it’s now or never

Agreed :thup: He's always been a bits and pieces cricketer who doesn't do enough nowadays to warrant selection in the worlds best ODI team.

Relieved and also slightly amazed that they've chosen the right squad. If Archer hadn't got in it would have been an absolute disgrace, the guy just has that something extra and is probably the only thing this ODI squad didn't have - genuine quality fast bowling.
