Apparently the ICC confirm that Kevin Pietersen COULD still be included in England's 15 man squad even though he's been left out of provisional 30.
Not sure what Root's doing there tbf, I thought they may have been tempted to pick Shah again.Croft deserves to be in that squad given his form this season- as does batty tbf. Root really isn't much of a T20 bat.
Yes he has, I'd like him to get another chance in the Twnety20 side, he's been absolutely monstering the bowlers this year. You could argue he'd get in as purely a batsman but obviously if he was picked with Kieswetter he'd have the gloves.Good to see Prior in the squad, been playing pretty well in the T20s.
Surprised that Awana isnt selected, he was one of the best bowlers in IPL. Dont know why Harbhajan is selected in probables, had done absolutely nothing to warrant selection since he has been droppedIndia
Probables: MS Dhoni, Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina, R Ashwin, Pragyan Ojha, Umesh Yadav, Ashok Dinda, Ajinkya Rahane, Manoj Tiwary, Rahul Sharma, Vinay Kumar, Zaheer Khan, Yuvraj Singh, Robin Uthappa, Irfan Pathan, Yusuf Pathan, Mandeep Singh, Piyush Chawla, Ravindra Jadeja, Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Harbhajan Singh, Munaf Patel, Naman Ojha, Dinesh Karthik, Praveen Kumar, L Balaji.
Looks fine. Exclusion of Awana is surprising if he isn't injured. Awana was the best Indian bowler during the IPL. Don't want to see Munaf Patel near the final 15.
Because of his batting and experience, I'm happy for him to be a T20 probable.Surprised that Awana isnt selected, he was one of the best bowlers in IPL. Dont know why Harbhajan is selected in probables, had done absolutely nothing to warrant selection since he has been dropped
Root's just not a T20 player, is he? Never even made 50.Not sure what Root's doing there tbf, I thought they may have been tempted to pick Shah again.
