These are all good points indeed. I certainly agree that a batting order of Vaughan, Strauss and Collingwood plus a couple of others would hardly have anyone shaking in their Boots. Realistically, two of these only would play with Cook, KP and Bell - I'd pick Colly and then neither of Vaughan or Strauss - Shah ought to be given his LONG overdue chance.
Prior - needs an extended run - his wkt keeping has definitely improved and his batting is peerless (as a wickie), he might just develop into an Alec Stewart
Hoggy is a bloody disgrace the way he has been treated. Harmison - would not have been brought back - he's done OK, but not enough
