KP is a really good batter, he can break open any game for you guysm and against a team such as Bangladesh he can hit a few home runs, and clear the ball park so I am surpirsed people are talking about having your best player warming the bench!He is one of your few batters that can bring the heat as he has some pop in his shot and within the space of an hour he can force Desh to have to play D.

Ark,please give it a rest.
Snotmanthat is not cool dude!I love sport and am voicing my views about sport on a sport forum what is so wrong wiht that?as ai say KP is a quality batter and he is too goo to be a bench warmer you need him out on the ball park!
ark, dont listen to the haters, dude. The heat you bring to this forum rocks. Those putting you down need to chill out, man. Preach!
if it is five bowlers then the two spinners along with i think Bresnan, Broad and Finn will be the likely attack. Assuming that Broad is not fit then Shahzad will probably take his place.
I remember Ark from his days as Tim Henman's number one cheerleader. He's had a couple of years since then to work up a new schtick. Two years used unproductively, unfortunately.I'd like England to be consistent in selection, which means four bowlers. I presume the next time we are in the subcon, v India, we won't be going in with five bowlers. Although, arguably, five bowlers might be the better winning option in this series.Not a big fan of Bresnan or Wright. If we're going in with two spinners, plus Broad, it makes sense to pick a seamer who was in the squad from the start. Anything else is kneejerking. So that means Shahzad or Plunkett. I'd go Plunkett. Shahzad always felt like a rather hasty wild card.
Cant say I remember you gabriel, I am not a huge fan of Henman to be honest! have always been a huge supporter of Andy Roddick and post a lot on the tennis forums!I love cricket I dont see why because I am an American and use different lingo to you guys I should be singled out! I am here to talk cricket!
I am suprised that so many people on here think Wright should play in place of Bresnan.I consider Wright an explosive one day player and a useful bowler but I cannot see him batting for long periods and his bowling is not quite there yet but he is improving and bowled well in one of the one dayers on a flat pitch.I personally would go with Swann and Tredwell then Bresnan and Plunkett if Broad is not fit I would play Finn saw him bowl a couple of times he has it all pace accuracy and height gets wicked bounce.
"Swann does not throw curve balls fast enough"Lol. Funniest thing I've read this week.
Whos should replace Onions?May be a
