Got a funny feeling I posted a similar message with the same title a while ago.

Bopara back into the ODI squad for the NZ series and also the champions trophy. Must be somebody new we could blood instead of re-cycling the same old failed rubbish.

Even more concerning without Pietersen the opening lineup looks like Cooke, Bell and Trott. Do I not like that. Think its going to put a lot of pressure on Root, Morgan and Butler down the order.

Clearly KP is going to be a big loss but I've got no problem at all with Cook, Bell and Trott in the top order. ODI's in the early Eng summer, proper batsmen should prosper over the so called short format specialists.

Give me Cook opening over Warner or Gayle any day of the week for this tournament.

Heard in interesting stat the other day. During all of 2012 Eng were the only test playing nation not to score over 300 once in a ODI........they also had the best returns of won 12 out of 15.

We might struggle on the sub cont where 350 are par scores but at home for this Champions Trophy.......our "accumulators" should go alright.

Hmmmm, after last night I might have to rethink my thoughts on our "proper batsmen" being the answer in early summer!!
