I'd put money on Archer being in the final squad. Not reading too much into this preliminary announcement.

West Indies leave it to the last minute to announce their squad

Pollard misses out which is slightly surprising but they have enough all rounders

Narine not interested in playing for the windies - probably afraid of getting called for chucking. Spin department looks weak

Personally think pollard isnt consistent enough, basically a less reliable Russell and pollard hardly bowls anymore.

Spin and generally the bowling attack looks weak. Think theyll just try and blast people out with their batting.

I rate Narine as a bolwer! And he can certainly bat too. If I were WI selectors, I would be trying everything I know to get him keen to play.
WI are very capable of surprising most teams on the day though.
But India look particularly strong (alongside England) although India still need to prove their quality away from home.
But just hope that England keep their "one bad game" in the group stages or after the World Cup!! And not in the knockout stages!!  :(

And would be surprised if England don't choose the following final 15....

Top 6 bats + reserve:
Roy
Bairstow
Root
Morgs
Buttler
Stokes
Vince

Spin department:
Ali
Rashid
Denly

Pacemen:
Wood
Willie
Woakes
Archer
T. Curran

Would surely pick Archer over Plunkett unless Archer has a nightmare couple of games vs Ireland and Pakistan!
Jordan would need to have 2 stunning games in the warm ups to jump up the pecking order!
Nice position to be in!!!

The starting XI will be interesting!  ;)
