The England selectors will sit down on Friday to pick the World Cup squad with questions still hanging over the head of captain Alastair Cook. In the Daily Mail, Nasser Hussain says it is not too late for England to make a change - a change he believes should have been made months ago - but the captain is not the only concern. He does not see the return of Stuart Broad and James Anderson as a quick fix for the bowler attack and still thinks England base their one-day cricket too much on Test match ideals.
When I helped compile the Schofield Report seven years ago, we were saying one-day cricket should be treated just as seriously as Test cricket and I see that Paul Downton was saying the same thing this week. Well, if England really mean it this time then they have to put faith in the younger, more dynamic batsmen who have grown up with Twenty20.
New Zealand fast bowler Trent Boult speaks to Andrew Alderson in the Herald on Sunday, on how his bowling has developed, his ODI career, his fitness, and his Cadets club.
"I used to come in and bowl as fast as I could but, over the years, I've learned there are times you have to bowl within yourself. I always talk about Dale Steyn 'sniffing the moment' to take the initiative in a game. A lot of people talk about 'the zone' but I prefer not to overthink it. At the Basin [during the 10-for] against the West Indies, I was just running in and letting it go hassle-free. Simple is the best recipe. Making sure I had the right wrist position was as complex as it got."
