Expect England will play their perceived first choice 11 tomorrow.

Hales
Roy
Root
Morgan
Stokes
Buttler
Ali
Rashid
Plunkett
Wood
Woakes

Should be way too strong for Bangladesh, we hope.

There is a small chance they may see sense and leave out Stokes to enable him to get properly fit, but I won't bank on it.
Guess for a team tomorrow in Cardiff.

Short straight boundaries and a couple of NZ musclemen mean Rash might well miss out again.

Hales
Roy
Root
Morgan
Stokes
Buttler
Ali
Plunkett
Willey
Ball
Wood

Hope the weather in Cardiff turns out to be better than that forecast around here.

Bangladesh scored 305-6 against us, Stu. I'd be surprised if Rashid doesn't play tomorrow, unless it's very damp.

So two no results, a rain affected, very one sided match and two full 50 over matches that turned into a bit of a stroll in the park. Not exactly capturing the imagination so far is it?

All the talk I've seen is Finn will come straight back in to the team.

Agreed, the tournament has been a damp squib so far with the majority of games being very one-sided, and with the only one that looked to be developing into a close finish rained off.

On the upside there is the possibility of Australia being eliminated without losing a game, which would be quite amusing.

Latest weather forecast Cardiff will miss the brunt of the rain and even most of the showers. I'm fairly confident a full 50 over match will be played with minimal interruption, just like 2012 Twenty20 Finals Day when the forecast was for a complete write off.

It has come to my attention that 14 players in the tournament currently play or have represented Yorkshire CCC:

England: Root, Bairstow, Rashid, Plunkett, Willey
Australia: Finch, Maxwell, Head, Starc
South Africa: Miller, Morkel, Tahir
New Zealand: Williamson
India: Yuvraj

Technically with Peter Handscomb on standby, Yorkshire have a full team to field and one very much capable of winning the tournament!

I think this just serves to prove how canny our recruiting overseas players under Moxon and Dizzy has been.

Several of these joined us before they were international regulars such as Miller, Starc and perhaps Williamson. Our talent spotting and player development extends beyond the Academy. Admittedly a couple didn't last the pace or deliver the goods like Tahoe and Morkel but both were stop gap rather than longer term signings

That's a pretty impressive 11! It would take some stopping
