Joe Root a certainty for future in long term. Next Trott, but english born and bred

I think if everyone is fit then Eoin Morgan is a nailed on cert for the first Test series of the summer. Personally I don't think he's the long-term answer, but he deserves first go. If any of the batters fail, then serious consideration should be given, initially to Hildreth, to whoever is scoring runs in the County Championship.

What about James Vince, looks an impressive young player and Dawid Malan, especially for limited overs cricket if we are looking to the next cricket world cup Also the return of Graeme Onions only strengthens Englands options and could possibly return later this summer, think Sri Lanka would come too early for him

a few other names to throw into the hat. Croft (Lancs) bats and bowls, Youngs and Walker (Oxford MCCU) very talented youngsters, also Northeast (Kent),

John Cresswell says... Hope they do not pick Alex Hales.Got too many Notts boys already! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Well done for a well thought out comment and excellent reasoning for not having Hales near the England set up. This young player is a very exciting talent and will one day be a regular for England, in all sorts of forms of the game. As exciting as Pieterson, but less 'me, me, me' and more of a team player

i agree with the ten players.however , they are missing 1 player called Jos Butler. i think he is the best young cricketer around this days should deserved a chance to play for england.Although he is a wicket keeper, somerset play him out in ther field and is one of the best fielders for somerset.

I'm a Surrey fan but don't think Rory Hamilton-Brown should be getting a chance in the England test team and neither should James Hildreth. With Strauss, Cook, Trott and Bell we have 4 batsmen that will on average get us 150-200 an innings with Pieterson and to a lesser extent Prior in there to hit big and look to get the centuries needed to win games with RHB or Hildreth in there we're likely to get a lot f scores of around 250-300 all out and the odd huge score when they all get their big scores but this will win individual games not series

What about Rashid, Woakes & Steve Davies? They should already be in the England starting XI with James Taylor.

Alex Hales surely deserves a mention too?? maybe more for his one day/ 20/20 play though

How many of these guys are South African or South African born? :-)

Matt Palmer says...

Hi think James Taylor has a big chance this year

John Miller says...

No mention of Johnny Bairstow - surely he could have cracked this top 10????

Hildreth must be considered due the sheer accumulation of runs last season. It also looks as if he did a more than decent job of captaining the lions in the West Indies during the winter. Only drawback is that he plays for the unfashionable county of Somerset. Then there is Buttler and Keiswetter to consider if only Trescothick was still available.

Biased I know but about time someone put Jimmy Adams in the frame ,more than deserves a call and scores runs anywhere. Watching him in the field he must still think he is 16 as he does not stop. Good to see Danny Briggs mentioned he was my wild card for Australia last winter but has shown in the Windies how good he is. Whats more Hampshire still have natural talent spinners in their midst. By the way I was born in Surrey but prefer cricket at league and county level in Hampshire. More friendly and more homegrown.

Tom Lee says...

I think Chris Nash (Sussex) is pretty unlucky to miss out, he bowls part time spin just like Hamilton-Brown and is a quality batsman

Glynn Thomas says...

Agree with most but think Buttler (Somerset) and Croft (Lancs) are unlucky to miss out. Nice piece

I'm a massive fan of Briggs. Think he has a great chance of breaking into the one-day teams soon!!
