    ECB has announced a 15-member squad for the champions trophy at home. The big surprise according to news sources in England seems to be Ravi Bopara. Everyone want his spot to be given to Luke Wright. The big surprise to me is that ECB have risked getting Graeme Swann in a ODI series prior to the Ashes.As this is his return after the elbow surgery could have used more time to heal it properly. Similarly, Tim Bresnan is also returning to international cricket after spending time in Minnesota getting his elbow fixed and notably was not in great bowling form in the ODI series in India.Ravi Bopara seems to have no backing among fans but lots of support were it matters from the captain and ECB. He has picked wickets with his bowling in domestic T20's I but think he has been primarily selected as a batsmen and this might be his last chance.
    So what do you guys think? Can they win it?

    Looks solid. So they finally said their goodbyes to Jade Dernbach ? Inclusion of Trott gives them flexibility to put Bell at the top with Bairstow at 4, Morgan at 5, Bulter at 6. Broad or Breslad, Tredwell, Finn and woakes will make the cut as bowlers.

    Matt prior the best wicket keeper batsmen in the world cannot find a place in the 11 sometimes I just cannot find reasoning. Do England just make up these 11's for ODI's?.We can expect nothing short of meadows as pitches :grin: going to be fun watching ODI's in June in England.
