ENG vs BER Warm-Up: England beat Bermuda by 241 runs

England beat Bermuda by 241 runs in World Cup warm-up in St Vincent. Two Dwayne Leverock wickets had Michael Vaughan's men 132-5, before Jamie Dalrymple's 76 took them to 286-8.
And the Bermudian batsmen looked well short of international class as they struggled throughout their run chase. Jon Lewis took 3-7 in four overs as the rank outsiders in this year's World Cup were bowled out for 45 in 22.2 overs.

Vaughan hails Freddie leadership

England captain Michael Vaughan has backed Andrew Flintoff's captaincy skills ahead of the World Cup.
Vaughan hopes to have recovered from hamstring and knee injuries, which kept him out of a large part of the winter tour to Australia, to be fit enough to fly to the Caribbean on Friday ahead of the tournament. "I thought Freddie did a tremendous job in the last few games in Australia to redeem what was a difficult tour for us," added Vaughan.
Star batsman Kevin Pietersen, himself recovering from a broken rib, has voiced concern over all-rounder Flintoff trying to combine being captain with his batting and bowling responsibilities. Vaughan is confident he will be fit to lead England in the warm-up games against Bermuda and Australia ahead of their opening World Cup fixture against New Zealand in Saint Lucia on March 16. Vaughan said: "The fitness is good. The games against Bermuda and Australia are going to be crucial going into the New Zealand game."

England announces World Cup squad

High after their tri-series win in Australia, England named their squad for the world cup. Michael Vaughan will captain the English side even though he has played just three of his team's last 35 one-day internationals.
Vaughan is currently recovering from a hamstring injury. The other players on the sick list are James Anderson and Jon Lewis. Kevin Pietersen who missed out on virtually the entire tri-aeries in Australia because of injury has passed a fitness test. The only surprise has been the exclusion of Mal Loye, who has been replaced by Essex's Rohan Bopara. England plays New Zealand, Canada and Kenya in the first round. England World Cup Squad :Michael Vaughan (Captain), James Anderson, Ian Bell, Ravi Bopara, Paul Collingwood, Jamie Dalrymple, Andrew Flintoff, Ed Joyce, Jon Lewis, Sajid Mahmood, Paul Nixon, Monty Panesar, Kevin Pietersen, Liam Plunkett, Andrew Strauss.

The squad includes four players who are uncapped at one-day International level including Kents Amjad Khan, Lancashires Mal Loye, Graham Onions of Durham and Essexs Ravi Bopara, who has been called up as a replacement for injured England batsman Kevin Pietersen.
