What we need is a team with no barriers to entry for promising players because we have a small, undroppable elite.
Okay, your view is pretty clear, but we are not talking an elite based on position, but a core based on competency and the qualities which must be further propagated throughout the squad. Barriers to entry? Absolutely. Do you have the required skills and a winning mentality that fits within the concept of the England ODI squad? Yes, then you will get your chances. No, then go away and develop those and then come back.
