2011 Cricket World Cup Squad Analysis & Preview

Analysing the 2011 Cricket World Cup Squads

From February 19 to April 2 - the cricketing world will once again come together and fight it out for the title of World Champion of One Day International Cricket.

India, Sri Lanka & Bangladesh are the host nations, with Dhaka hosting the opening game on Feb 19 between India & Bangladesh and then Mumbai hosting the Final on Apr 2.

We're now in mid-January and as each nation names their 15 Man Squad for the Tournament - wdnicolson.blogspot.com will analyse each team's squad, identify their wildcard, give you our Best XI from the squads and judge the chances of each team lifting the World Cup.

We'll add in the odds for each team closer to the start of the tournament and give you our predictions before the first game on February 19.

Here we go...

AUSTRALIA
15 Man Squad Named January 18:
BATSMEN: R Ponting (c), M Clarke (vc), B Haddin (wk), M Hussey (OUT), C White, T Paine (wk), C Ferguson (IN).
ALL-ROUNDERS: J Hastings, D Hussey, M Johnson, S Smith, S Watson.
BOWLERS: D Bollinger, N Hauritz (OUT), B Lee, S Tait. J Krejza (IN)
SQUAD ANALYSIS: 
Australia have had no answers at the selection table for the English over the summer and now the same decision makers have made a bunch of head scratching decisions for their World Cup defence. Despite incredible domestic form there is no place for Brad Hodge and seemingly incumbent batsman Callum Ferguson has been punted despite a career ODI average of 46.07 (Ferguson was recalled after Michael Hussey was ruled out with a hamstring injury). Ricky Ponting returns to skipper the team which features some batting class in Watson & Clarke. Shaun Tait, Brett Lee & Mitchell Johnson will lead the attack with Steve Smith, David Hussey & late call up Jason Krejza fighting for possibly two spinning roles. Tim Paine has been included to keep pressure on Brad Haddin for the wicketkeeping spot, while John Hastings will fight Doug Bollinger for the 4th seamer ranking. It's a good squad but it is not a great one on paper and it doesn't help that key men Ponting (finger) is still in doubt for the start of the tournament and Michael Hussey will not play.
WILDCARD: 
Mitchell Johnson - he can spray it all over the place in four straight games and then bowl a spell that is so devastating in the next game that it can turn his team's fortunes around. In a World Cup you'll take those four dud performances if the stellar display is in a World Cup Final. Handy with the bat but it is with the ball that Johnson can make his biggest contribution for Australia's title defence.
Best Australian XI: 
  1. S Watson
  2. B Haddin
  3. R Ponting (c)
  4. M Clarke
  5. C White
  6. C Ferguson
  7. D Hussey
  8. M Johnson
  9. J Krejza
  10. B Lee
  11. S Tait
CAN THEY WIN? 
They can but they are not the best in world cricket any more.
Australia have won three consecutive World Cups (1999, 2003 & 2007) but they enter the 2011 Tournament no longer holding the mantle as the best team in the world. That doesn't mean they cannot reclaim the title and hold onto the title as the best One Day team but their Ashes defeat has them on the backfoot entering the competition. That being said they still have the likes of Ponting, Watson, Johnson & Michael Hussey - all match winners on their day, so you cannot write them off.
INDIA
15 Man Squad Named January 17:
BATSMEN: M Dhoni (c/wk), V Sehwag (vc), G Gambhir, V Kohli, S Raina, S Tendulkar.
ALL-ROUNDERS: Y Pathan, H Singh, Y Singh.
BOWLERS: R Ashwin, P Chawla, Z Khan, P Kumar (OUT), A Nehra, M Patel, S Sreesanth (IN).
SQUAD ANALYSIS: 
If Dhoni stays in the Top 4 then India have the best top order on paper in the World Cup. Sehwag and Tendulkar (if both are fit) will get them off to a flier and Gambhir and Dhoni could make teams pay off the back of a good start. With a variation of Yuvraj Singh, Kohli, Raina and Pathan in the middle order - India should keep coming at their opposition with plenty of batting but they may go with an extra spinner instead of a batsman which may weaken them if early wickets fall. Khan must take wickets with the new ball, while Harbhajan Singh needs to make full use of his 10 overs every game. The rest of the attack is nothing flash to be honest but there's not many teams that have a deep bowling unit. 
WILDCARD: 
Harbhajan Singh - his batting at Test level lately puts him in the all-rounder category now but it is with the ball that the prodigious off-spinner must make his impact. Could be the one bowler no-one wants to face all World Cup long...
Best Indian XI: 
  1. V Sehwag
  2. S Tendulkar
  3. G Gambhir
  4. M Dhoni (c)
  5. Y Singh
  6. V Kohli
  7. Y Pathan
  8. H Singh
  9. Z Khan
  10. A Nehra
  11. M Patel
CAN THEY WIN? 
Of course... but we've been waiting for a while.
India are the team everyone is waiting for to seize a World Cup with their talented roster but they haven't made a serious challenge since 2003 when the Australian's bashed them in the World Cup Final in South Africa. This will surely be Tendulkar's last World Cup and his Test form suggests he has plenty left in the tank... he can get them to another Final but Harbhajan Singh & Zaheer Khan must be the ones who win it for them.
SRI LANKA
15 Man Squad Named January 7:
BATSMEN: K Sangakkara (c/wk), M Jayawardene (vc), T Dilshan, C Kapugedera, T Samaraweera, C Silva, U Tharanga.
ALL-ROUNDERS: N Kulesekara, A Mathews, T Perera.
BOWLERS: D Fernando, R Herath, L Malinga, A Mendis, M Muralitharan.
SQUAD ANALYSIS:
Are loaded at the top of the order with Sangakkara, Jayawardene & Dilshan quality batsmen. Malinga, Muralitharan & Kulesekara lead the attack but it will be interesting to see who joins them with the ball as Perera, Fernando and the two spinners Herath & Mendis are great options on the sub-continent. They'll pick three all-rounders with Mathews, Kulesekara and Perera all capable with bat and ball but rely on their spin to take the bulk of their wickets.
WILDCARD: 
Angelo Mathews - had a breakthrough series against Australia with the bat and if he is able to bowl in this World Cup he could be a match-winner on either side of the ball for the Sri Lankans. Will bat down the order and is the Sri Lankan's finisher.
Best Sri Lankan XI: 
  1. U Tharanga
  2. T Dilshan
  3. K Sangakkara (c)
  4. M Jayawardene
  5. T Samaraweera
  6. A Mathews
  7. N Kulasekara
  8. T Perera
  9. R Herath
  10. A Mendis
  11. M Muralitharan
CAN THEY WIN? 
Yes indeed.
Their top order batting is as good as any in One Day Cricket and they have a number of game changers with the ball. Their progress in the tournament will rest on the shoulders of Sangakkara, Jayawardene, Muralitharan & Malinga. But if the likes of Mathews, Dilshan and Mendis or Herath step up - they can make and win the World Cup Final.
ENGLAND
BATSMEN: A Strauss (c), I Bell, E Morgan (OUT), K Pietersen, M Prior (wk), J Trott.
ALL-ROUNDERS: T Bresnan, S Broad, P Collingwood, J Tredwell, L Wright, R Bopara (IN)
BOWLERS: J Anderson, A Shahzad, G Swann, M Yardy.
SQUAD ANALYSIS: 
In a stunning move England punted Steven Davies as their wicketkeeper batsman and brought back Ashes hero Matt Prior after it looked like they'd hitched their wagon to Davies. Strauss will lead the batting order but it might be wise to open Bell and move Prior down the order. With Pietersen, Trott and Morgan in the middle order they can certainly bat and counter attack. How many all-rounders they take into each game will be interesting with Broad trying to return from injury, joining Collingwood, Wright and Bresnan as the main hopes in that role. Anderson will lead the attack with Swann and Yardy. It's a fine squad full of in form players from the Ashes but this is One Day cricket...
WILDCARD: 
Well it would've been Eion Morgan  but he is now out of the World Cup with a broken finger. This is what we had written before the injury - Morgan has adopted the role of finisher for the English and he hits the ball so easily the Michael Bevan comparisons aren't far off. Can wicketkeep too so if Prior doesn't get it done in the early games and the English want to play another bowling all-rounder - Morgan allows them to.
Best English XI: 
  1. A Strauss (c)
  2. I Bell
  3. J Trott
  4. K Pietersen
  5. P Collingwood
  6. M Prior
  7. M Yardy
  8. S Broad
  9. T Bresnan
  10. G Swann
  11. J Anderson
CAN THEY WIN? 
They'll be full of confidence after the Ashes... but they aren't favourites.
The English have the tools to make a run at this World Cup but Jimmy Anderson needs to replicate his form with the new ball for their attack to hold the quality lineups they'll come up against. With Strauss, Pietersen & Swann they've got their own game-breakers but they need a big contribution from Broad if he does indeed play. Good enough but so are a lot of teams.
SOUTH AFRICA
BATSMEN: G Smith (c), H Amla, AB de Villiers (wk), JP Duminy, C Ingram, M van Wyk (wk).
ALL-ROUNDERS: F du Plessis, J Kallis, 
BOWLERS: J Botha, I Tahir, M Morkel, W Parnell, R Petersen, D Steyn, L Tsotsobe.
SQUAD ANALYSIS: 
As great as some of the names included in the squad are - Kallis, Smith, Steyn, de Villiers, Amla etc - you can't help be shocked by the absence of Mark Boucher and Albie Morkel. The South African selectors have left those two out, going with de Villiers behind the stumps and du Plessis ahead of Morkel in the all-rounder spot. They are stunning omissions. The top order doesn't suffer as they have class players in every spot but the tail now looks very long even if the likes of Ingram & du Plessis (if picked) turn out to be good contributors. Steyn leads the attack with Morne Morkel, while Parnell, Petersen, Tahir & Tsotsobe will fight it out for the other bowling spot alongside Botha. Again this is a good squad with some high end talent but it isn't as deep as we're used to seeing from South Africa when the likes of Boucher, Klusener & Pollock filled those lower order spots.
WILDCARD: 
AB de Villiers - given the extra responsibility of the gloves - this naturally gifted strokemaker could be the best batsman South Africa have at this World Cup. That's saying something with Smith, Amla and Kallis ahead of him in the order. His ability to counter-attack on good deliveries is a huge plus and there is no doubt he is an upgrade on Boucher batting wise (even though he would've been in the team anyway) so that allows South Africa to pick an extra batsman or bowler.
Best South African XI: 
  1. G Smith (c)
  2. H Amla
  3. J Kallis
  4. AB de Villiers
  5. JP Duminy
  6. C Ingram
  7. F du Plessis
  8. J Botha
  9. W Parnell
  10. D Steyn
  11. M Morkel
CAN THEY WIN? 
They've got as good a chance as anyone...
But they've stuffed up their last few chances with possibly better squads. Make no mistake this South African squad is very good but it's been a case of not being good enough when they're close enough in past World Cups and we're still waiting for them to seize a Semi Final by the scruff of the neck and progress to a Final. If they win this year it'll be on the strength of their batting order which is in a word - potent. Dale Steyn and their spin attack will need to keep the scores gettable but that top order is quality.
NEW ZEALAND
BATSMEN: M Guptill, J How, B McCullum (wk), R Taylor.
ALL-ROUNDERS: D Vettori (c), J Franklin, J Oram, J Ryder, S Styris, K Williamson.
BOWLERS: H Bennett, N McCullum, K Mills, T Southee, L Woodcock.
SQUAD ANALYSIS: 
Hey New Zealand how about picking an all-rounder? The squad is stacked with them and it will either work beautifully or expose them on both sides of the ball. Vettori is the glue in the lineup but how high can he afford to bat without weakening the order too much? Brendon McCullum is the best wicket-keeper batsman in one day cricket so he's their ace but how will the likes of Oram, Taylor, Ryder & the rookie Williamson aim up over the course of the tournament? The bowling attack looks pedestrian and that's being kind... Southee needs a huge series for the Kiwis to look like getting past the Quarters.
WILDCARD: 
Brendon McCullum - as said above he's the best wicket-keeper batsman around and he can have the Kiwis 0/100 after 15 overs if his attacking style comes off. But if he doesn't score runs at the top of the order, New Zealand are in deep poop. He's that important to their fortunes.
Best New Zealander XI: 
  1. B McCullum
  2. J Ryder
  3. R Taylor
  4. K Williamson
  5. M Guptil
  6. S Styris
  7. J Oram
  8. D Vettori (c)
  9. J Franklin
  10. K Mills
  11. T Southee
CAN THEY WIN? 
Probably not.
They'll back themselves in every game but they lack the quality of the real contenders and their depth is questionable. Vettori and McCullum need a lot of support but it's hard to see them getting it unless the young talent in the squad play out of their skins.
PAKISTAN
BATSMEN: M-ul-Haq, A Shehzad, A Shafiq, K Akmal (wk), M Hafeez, U Akmal (wk), Y Khan.
ALL-ROUNDERS: A Razzaq, M Hafeez, S Afridi.
BOWLERS: A Rehman, S Ajmal, S Akhtar, S Tanvir (OUT), U Gul, W Riaz, J Khan (IN).
SQUAD ANALYSIS: 
There was no room for Mohammed Yousuf so Pakistan are obviously confident they have the batting firepower to make a statement at this World Cup. Afridi, Misbah-ul-Haq, Gul, the Akmal's, Khan, Razzaq & Akhtar form the nucleus of a good squad but you just can't be sure that their whole XI is talented enough to beat a number of the top sides as the tournament goes on. Going in with Afridi, Rehman & Ajmal as their spin attack is a real possibility, while Razzaq, Ahktar and Gul will probably lead the fast bowlers. Settling on a batting order is also important and the team should look to play both Akmal brothers given their explosiveness with the bat.
WILDCARD: 
Umar Akmal - burst onto the Test scene with some blazing innings and then disappeared from the Pakistan team with a few months it seemed... Has some great shots in his arsenal but the temperament that failed him in Test cricket may suit his game down to the ground in the ODIs. Should play as a batsman only but Pakistan may be tempted to pick him as their keeper as well.
Best Pakistani XI: 
  1. K Akmal
  2. U Akmal
  3. Y Khan
  4. M-ul-Haq
  5. S Afridi
  6. M Hafeez
  7. A Razzaq
  8. A Rehman
  9. U Gul
  10. S Ahktar
  11. S Ajmal
CAN THEY WIN? 
Probably not but this group has surprised us before.
They'll need to get a dream run come Quarter Final time to be in with a show but in the World Cup anything is possible. The world has been waiting for Shahid Afridi to have a big World Cup and hopefully we get to see him go nuts in this tournament.
BANGLADESH
BATSMEN: T Iqbal (vc), I Kayes, J Siddique, M Ashraful, M Rahim (wk), S Nafees, R Hasan.
ALL-ROUNDERS: S Al Hasan (c), Mahmudullah, N Islam, N Hossain.
BOWLERS: R Hossain, S Islam, S Shuvo, A Razzaq.
SQUAD ANALYSIS: 
Hard to make an educated analysis based on the few times the Bangladeshi's play on TV but they've got a great player in their skipper Shakib Al Hasan who does almost everything for them and a bunch of players who have had the odd big day on the world stage. Iqbal, Siddique, Kayes, Ashraful, Nafees and Razzaq all fit that category but they'll need more than just one good day from every one of them to make any real progress in the tournament.
WILDCARD: 
Shakib Al Hasan - he's statistically the best all-rounder in the world in ODIs and he's just 23. Bats in the middle order and bowls some handy left arm orthodox that gets wickets. So he's quite the package.
Best Bangladeshi XI: 
  1. T Iqbal
  2. I Kayes
  3. J Siddique
  4. M Ashraful
  5. S Al Hasan (c)
  6. N Islam
  7. M Rahim
  8. N Hossain
  9. A Razzaq
  10. S Shuvo
  11. R Hossain
CAN THEY WIN? 
No but they might snag a game at home against a higher ranked opponent and that's probably the most they can wish for in a tournament they'll co-host. But progress is progress for a nation that is gradually improving.
WEST INDIES
BATSMEN: A Barath, C Baugh (wk), S Chanderpaul, R Sarwan, Devon Smith.
ALL-ROUNDERS: D Sammy (c), Dwayne Bravo, Darren Bravo, C Gayle, K Pollard.
BOWLERS: S Benn, R Rampaul, K Roach, A Russell, N Miller.
SQUAD ANALYSIS: 
Like New Zealand the West Indian's squad is made up of a lot of all-rounders. They have some quality with the likes of Gayle, Chanderpaul & Sarwan in the top order, and Dwayne Bravo & Pollard offer the x-factor with bat and ball. Interestingly Baugh was preferred to Dinesh Ramdin behind the stumps, while Roach and skipper Sammy will be relied upon to lead the attack with Bravo, Pollard, Benn, Rampaul, Russell, Gayle & Miller the rest of the bowling unit. They probably don't have the bowling attack to worry anyone but they will entertain with the bat.
WILDCARD: 
Keiron Pollard - has entertained Australia in the Big Bash the past two summers for South Australia and offers a more explosive all-round package than Dwayne Bravo. If Pollard and Chris Gayle fire - then the West Indians should hold off Bangladesh for the quarter final spot in their group.
Best West Indian XI: 
  1. S Chanderpaul
  2. C Gayle
  3. R Sarwan
  4. K Pollard
  5. Dwayne Bravo
  6. Darren Bravo
  7. C Baugh
  8. D Sammy
  9. N Miller
  10. S Benn
  11. K Roach
CAN THEY WIN? 
With Gayle, Pollard, Chanderpaul & Bravo they might have a chance at springing a Quarter Final upset but that looks to be their limit. And hey they need to qualify first. The bowling attack looks thin and their batting isn't always reliable so to progress in this tournament the West Indies must find some consistency from their opening group game.
ZIMBABWE
BATSMEN: R Chakabva (wk), C Coventry, C Ervine, G Lamb, T Taibu (wk), B Taylor, S Williams.
ALL-ROUNDERS: E Chigumbura (c), S Ervine, P Utseya.
BOWLERS: G Cremer, S Masakadza, C Mpofu, R Price, E Rainsford.
SQUAD ANALYSIS: 
They've got some ability with the likes of Taibu, the Ervine brothers (Shaun Ervine has withdrawn), Taylor, Price, Utseya and the skipper Chigumbura but they are still a long way off from where they were in the late 1990s. They might beat both Canada & Kenya to give themselves a chance at a Quarter Final spot but they will have to likely claim a victory against New Zealand or Pakistan to force their way in. They might be fun to watch though.
WILDCARD: 
Well it would've been Shaun Ervine but he withdrew to 'focus' on Hampshire... this is what he would've brought to the table: Was considered one of the brightest all-round prospects in world cricket a number of years ago but he had a long time away from the national team and only now returns for a crack at the World Cup. Can bat and is a handy bowler but he'll have to be superhuman to give the Zimbabweans a hope at the Quarters.
Best Zimbabwean XI: 
  1. B Taylor
  2. T Taibu
  3. C Ervine
  4. G Lamb
  5. C Coventry
  6. S Williams
  7. E Chigumbura (c)
  8. P Utseya
  9. G Cremer
  10. R Price
  11. C Mpofu
CAN THEY WIN? 
Long odds to make the Quarters but they are in the better of the two groups to make the jump. But if they get beaten by Kenya or Canada - Zimbabwe cricket could get pushed even further behind the eight ball.

IRELAND
Squad: W Porterfield (c), A Botha, A Cusack, G Dockrell, T Johnston, N Jones, E Joyce, J Mooney, K O'Brien, N O'Brien (wk), B Rankin, P Stirling, A van der Merwe, A White, G Wilson (wk).
BATSMEN: TBD
ALL-ROUNDERS: TBD
BOWLERS: TBD
SQUAD ANALYSIS: 
To be added.
WILDCARD: 
Ed Joyce - formerly an English batsman who gets a chance to play for the Irish in a World Cup. He'll make the best of it and will need a boatload of runs to make the Irish competitive.
Best Irish XI: 
  1. TBD
CAN THEY WIN? 
Of course not but they'll be one of the teams the fans get behind.

KENYA
Squad: J Kamande (c), T Mishra, J Ngoche, S Ngoche, A Obanda, C Obuya, D Obuya (wk), N Odhiambo, T Odoyo, P Ongondo, E Otieno, M Ouma (wk), R Patel, S Tikolo, S Waters.
BATSMEN: TBD
ALL-ROUNDERS: TBD
BOWLERS: TBD
SQUAD ANALYSIS: 
How many players have a last name beginning with 'O'? Try eight out of the 15 man squad - brilliant! More on the rest of the squad soon.
WILDCARD: 
TBD.
Best Kenyan XI: 
  1. TBD
CAN THEY WIN? 
Not a chance Lance.
NETHERLANDS
BATSMEN: W Barresi (wk), A Buurman (wk), T de Grooth, A Kervezee, E Szwarczynski, B Zuiderent.
ALL-ROUNDERS: P Borren (c), T Cooper, R ten Doeschate.
BOWLERS: A Raja (vc), M Bukhari, B Kruger, B Loots, P Seelaar, B Westdijk.
SQUAD ANALYSIS:
Not a squad with many recognisable names but Ryan ten Doeschate, Tom Cooper and Bas Zuiderent are somewhat known to the international savvy fan. As for the rest of the squad... they've got some quality names, but it's hard to be sure about the the quality of their games.
WILDCARD: 
Tom Cooper - he is progressing well in the South Australian ranks as a batsman but his handy off-spinners have been used to some success in domestic and international cricket. Along with ten Doeschate - they hold the hopes of the Netherlands getting a victory.
Best Dutch XI:
  1. E Szwarcynski
  2. A Kervezee
  3. R ten Doeschate
  4. T Cooper
  5. W Barresi
  6. P Borren (c)
  7. B Zuiderent
  8. M Bukhari
  9. P Seelaar
  10. B Kruger
  11. A Raja
CAN THEY WIN? 
Nope... not a chance.
They might get an upset win over the West Indies or Bangladesh but then again they might not. Hopefully one of their unknowns has a big day against the likes of India, South Africa or England so that the game gets some press back in Holland.
CANADA
15 Man Squad Named January 21
Squad: A Bagai (c/wk), R Cheema (vc), H Baidwan, B Rao, J Davison, P Desai, T Gordon, R Gunasekera, J Hansra, K Chohan, N Kumar, H Osinde, H Patel, Z Surkari, K Whatham, H Tariq.
BATSMEN: TBD
ALL-ROUNDERS: TBD
BOWLERS: TBD
SQUAD ANALYSIS: 
TBD.
WILDCARD: 
John Davison - can hit the ball but he's now 40 and someone else in the Canadian squad might want to contribute with bat or ball for Canada to have a chance in any game they play.
Best Canadian XI: 
  1. TBD
CAN THEY WIN? 
Nup.
