England World Cup Squad part 2
England head into the 10th World Cup aspiring to win their first title, and after winning the T-20 World Cup last year, England surely have made it clear that they have what it takes. Paul Collingwood was the man who led them to the T-20 title,
in the Caribbean, in 2010. The all-rounder is a man tailored for the limited overs format. Even though he has made telling contributions in Test cricket in the past, he has now retired form Test cricket and looks to focus on ODIs and T-20s. Collingwood has
the ability to build an innings in the middle, and can also use the long handle in the final overs when needed. Collingwood's medium paced bowling is not easy to take on in the middle of the innings and he is particularly known to be quite effective in the
last overs of the game.
Luke Wright is the 2nd all rounder in the team. The right hander is yet to prove himself on the international stage. Wright has big shoes to fill as he was included in the team after Andrew Flintoff called it a day from international cricket.
Jonathan Trott is one of the big successes of the Ashes this year. The right hander smashed 2 spectacular centuries and if he can bring the same form to the World Cup, he would be quite an asset for England. Trott has all the shots in the book and is very
tight on technique. His predominant front foot approach may be the way to go in the Subcontinent. Trott has been chosen to bat at number 3 in Test matches, but in ODIs, he comes at number 4 or 5, as Pieterson is normally the one coming in at number 3. The
positions may be switched around in the series against to see which order suits the team best.
Graeme Swann is the leading spinner in the team. The off-spinner has grown as a bowler in the last couple of years or so, and become one of the leading spinners in the world. Swann has the traditional drift and flight of an off-spinner, and on Asian pitches,
he may be quite a handful. Swann is also pretty useful with the bat too, and can knock quite a few down the order.
Michael Yardy is the 2nd spinner in the team. The left arm orthodox is not known for his wicket taking abilities, but can contain the batsmen in the middle of the innings. He may be considered as an all-rounder considering his batting exploits.
If England decide to go with two spinners, then Yardy may be picked alongside Swann, but if they go with one, he would be the one sitting out.
The 3rd spinner in the team is James Tredwell. The off-spinner is in the squad as a backup spinner. James has been performing well for his county, He has played 2 ODIs for England so far, but did not make much of an impression in them. Considering
his domestic record, he can bat quite well and can be used as an all-rounder if needed.
