England World Cup squad 2011

Injured pace bowler Stuart Broad has been named in England’s preliminary 30-man squad for next year’s World Cup in Bangladesh, India and Sri Lanka.

The squad, which will be halved by Jan. 19, includes all of those named in the one-day international squad for the series against Australia as well as eight members of the England Lions squad set to tour the West Indies next year.

Broad, who has been ruled out of the current Ashes tour in Australia with an abdominal injury, is joined by pacemen Steven Finn and Chris Tremlett in the squad. Broad is expected to regain fitness in time for the tournament.

Twenty20 world champions England have been drawn in a group alongside Bangladesh, India, Ireland, the Netherlands, South Africa and West Indies.

“We have selected a squad of players with a strong track record in limited overs cricket either for England or in the domestic game,” England national selector Geoff Miller said in a statement.

“Recent series have shown we have made progress in one-day cricket and we will be looking to continue this form during next year’s World Cup and challenge for another global title.”

The World Cup runs from Feb. 19 to April 2.

England squad: Andrew Strauss (captain), Jimmy Adams, James Anderson, Ian Bell, Ravi Bopara, Tim Bresnan, Stuart Broad, Paul Collingwood, Alastair Cook, Steven Davies, Jade Dernbach, Steven Finn, James Hildreth, Craig Kieswetter, Michael Lumb, Eoin Morgan, Samit Patel, Kevin Pietersen, Liam Plunkett, Matt Prior, Adil Rashid, Ajmal Shahzad, Darren Stevens, Graeme Swann, James Tredwell, Chris Tremlett, Jonathan Trott, Chris Woakes, Luke Wright, Michael Yardy.

  1. I must be surprised if Michael Lumb is NOT picked in fifteen members squad for world cup. He is a tremendous batsman and capable of scoring quick runs against fast bowlers. Sometimes he loses his patience but on his day he can certainly demolish any bowling attack.
    Good batting performances in IPL of last year are the proofs of his talent.

    Although he did not play for England in one day cricket but he must be given the chance against Australia in one day internationals before the start of world cup.

    Good luck Michael Lumb. I hope that English selectors would read these comments.

  2. I think that alistar cook is a tremendous player. I think instead of picking people like ravi bopara who is one of the most inconsistant players in the england squad, they should have chose alistar cook. alistar cook made at least 800 runs in the ashes and still the selectors dont pick them. 2 years ago ravi bopara came to nz in the national t20 championship for the auckland aces. his overall runs in about 12 games was about 100 runs. and that too in 2020. I also think that the england selectors should have chosen tremlett instead of micheal yardy. the same thing happend to yardy when he came to nz. I was thinking about what happend to dimitiri mascheranis and monty panaser. at least dimitiri is a good slogger in the death. england only have yardy and bresnan. i hope the english selectors have read this and leant something from it.
