It shows how bare the English spin bowling cuboard is when we have to pick 36 year old Shaun Udal who last played international cricket 11 years ago. He may have played well in the County Championship this season but is hardly one for the future. Matt Prior is the reserve wicket keeper in both the Test and One Day squads so Chris Read is obviously past redemption now which is a shame. An interesting selection for the One Day squad is Liam Plunkett who many of you may have never heard of. As a follower of the fortunes of Durham County Cricket Club I have seen him a couple of times and he is a 20 year old fast bowler who bowls at speeds at up to 90mph and is devastating on his day but sprays them around all over the place when it isn't. He reminds me of Steve Harmison at the same age in terms of his effectiveness and many cricket pundits feel that if he continues to develop he will soon be bowling alongside his fellow Geordie in the England team.
