David Lloyd tips England, Pietersen and Strauss

Undeniably, New Zealand, hit by a spate of premature retirements, is the weaker side. Therefore, there is nothing surprising to see David Lloyd predicting England to win both ODI's and Test series against New Zealand.


However, I contest his claim that Pietersen and Strauss will score the bulk of the runs. Pietersen's cross – batted heaves are a recipe for failure in New Zealand. Strauss is another big joke; for the last one year he has done nothing of significance.


For me, Cook and Bell are the key batsmen and as for Vaughn, he is simply coasting on his accomplishments. I am also looking at a fit Collingwood to counter punch in the middle order.


Your thoughts?
