Archer strolls into the squad most likely, the difficult bit will be where he gets in the side - England's seam attack has got a really nice balance to it lately. Unless Plunkett has a pretty shocking drop in form I don't see him being left out, he's been so good at the middle overs role during the past few years. Similarly Woakes opening up (also massively underrated contribution batting at 8), struggled with injuries recently but England have shown he's their first choice seamer. Wood bowled himself into the team in the West Indies so if he keeps bowling that way it's hard to leave him out too, suspect if Archer comes in it'll be more down to form as to who he replaces.

The issue we have is we don't have 2 death bowlers. I mean Rashid did it a couple of times in the WI but that can't be a permanent solution in England on WC pitches. We have all seen that Stokes isn't a death overs bowler! Plunkett bowls the middle overs. Willey bowls the new ball overs. That leaves Wood, Woakes and Curran in the squad. Woakes has shown he can do it, Wood has no previous experience and Curran is a specialist at it but would he genuinely get in the team anyway?

It all points to needing Archer at the end of the innings with probably Woakes.

These pitches will probably be roads and I think it will be the best bowling attack that wins it, much like the Champions Trophy that Pakistan won here.

The grumpy old git continues to bash Woakes
Woakes gets in ahead of at least Curran/ Plunkett/ Willey and probably wood as well
So what if he didnt get an ipl gig? Morgan went unsold too but I doubt youre suggesting leaving him out
A seam attack of stokes Woakes archer and wood is better than any other combination
Not really bashing  or grumpy  but agree
 regarding the IPL gig  following a poor 2018 IPL it only shows how the Franchises rate him anyway time will tell who plays.

@Seniorplayer I wouldn't read too much into who gets given a part to play in the IPL pantomime to be honest mate.

For all we know, there may be some players who get a copy of the script before the auction and decline a part...

I don't but they have probably done woakes a big favour as a 30 year old seamer who has suffered injuries  wouldn't have thought it wise to flog yourself around India weeks before the World Cup.

You are lying to yourself. Woakes is the first seamer on the teamsheet.

Wood did a half decent job defending next to nothing against SA (I think it was) a couple of year back.

Pakistan leaving out Amir, I know he's not been in great form but in England I still regard him as a very good bowler

I love the new format. Most teams can beat anyone on the day which means you need to be consistently good to be the champions.

With Gayle Russell and their bowlers windies look a good bet.

Alex Hales taking a break from Cricket for personal reasons but England hope to have him back for the pre WC camp starting next weekend.... the official line was he made himself unavailable for selection with no timescale set for his return.
