To my eyes, Carey is the first out with Handscomb able to do the job behind the stumps. I don't think Hazelwood walks in either.

Finch
Warner
Smith
Khawaja
Maxwell
Stoinis
Handscomb (+)
Cummins
Starc
Hazelwood/Richardson
Zampa

If smith was allowed to captain then I'd drop finch...

Yep this is the side I would pick.

If they really want a proper keeper in then Carey plays instead of Handscombe, who's technique is not great anywhere outside the SC anyway.

There is also the possibility that Khawaja will bat 3 and Smith at 4 I think dependent on who gets out as you could keep LH/RH combo out in the middle.

When you look at all the big teams suddenly India are in a bit of sticky situation.

They have no idea of their best side, no middle order to speak of and because of the IPL them have no more ODI's before they have to announce their squad.

Whereas Australia are in good form, have Warner and Smith to come back in and still have 5 ODI's against Pakistan to try anything out they are unsure of.

How things change.

Problem with india is that they have too many players to select from and they keep moving players around. They should select a team and play with it even if you loose some. Dhawan should definitely be out

Looks a strong side on paper. Hazlewood probably wont make the cut

Warner and smith are going to be given the IPL to show some form

Dhawan is a funny one, looks class on his day, and I think averages about 46 in ODIs.  On the face of it you'd expect him to be in their squad and possibly their team at the World Cup, but he's incredibly frustrating at times, with some very rash shot selection at crucial times.  One thing I think they have in their favour is the recent success of their attack in English conditions, they're genuinely good for the first time in ages, and you know they've some very talented batsmen too - all it takes is two or three to find form and they're dangerous.

People rote them off too easily. Had an urge and I wished I'd put money on now.

Latest WC odds with bet365 are as follows....

England 9/4
India 3/1
Australia 9/2
SA 8/1
NZ 10/1
Pakistan 10/1
Windies 16/1
SL 40/1
Bangladesh 80/1
Afghanistan 80/1

Pakistan could be worth a couple of quid.

Abbas in England...

Also think that NZ at 10/1 is a decent shout if Boult and Southee play well.  In Guptill, Taylor, Williamson and Latham they've a pretty solid top order.

I really think this WC is a lot more open than some people think. With this format there are no easy games at all.
