>> England v West Indies at Lord's
>> Who do you think the selectors will pick (which may not necessarily be

>> Strauss Gayle
>> Cook Devon Smith
>> Vaughan Sarwan
>> Pietersen Samuels
>> Collingwood Chanderpaul
>> Flintoff Bravo
>> Prior Dwayne Smith
>> Panesar Ramdin
>> Harmison Powell
>> Hoggard Collymore
>> Anderson Taylor
pretty much all the England team seem to be nailed on - the only
questions would be first the Wicket Keeper - I would go with either
Read or Nixon, with Nixon just shading it.
The only other question is whether Harmison will be carried for yet
another season but I don't think Mahmood of Plunkett have shown enough
class to displace him yet, I think he may well get a wake up call from
Moores, hopefully this will be enough to resurrect the apparently
lifeless corpse of Harmison's competitiveness.
Anderson has always shown huge potential IMHO and I would stay with
him for now.
>More info on Prior please.
big hitting wicket keeper in the Gilchrist style, played as a
specialist bat few ODI's last year IIRC - looked good but had a
tendency to get himself out when looked set in the 20s or 30s IIRC.
>in Briz, thinking that looks the worst WI side I've ever seen.
When England played them a few years ago they looked to have a lot of
class but woeful consistancy, 2 or 3 good days where they were every
bit as good as England but then they would collapse and throw the game
Back then I thought that with a couple of years more experiance and
greater consistancy that would come with it they may be a good side
but they seem to have gone nowhere from what I have seen in the WC.
