You still don't plan for a WC 4 years out.
I bet you they do.

They’d have started planning for England within a year of lifting it at the G.

Watson, Johnson, Bailey, Clarke, Doherty all predictable outs in need of replacements. Faulkner admittedly was the shock in that bunch.

They’d have been monitoring and promoting guys on A tours in the hope they’d be able to step into the side in future.

We're not going to improve by gifting games to players who aren't ready.
That is fair.
Rock and a hard place really then isn’t it.

Make players earn it and stick with guys who won’t get it done in 4 years or lower your standards and possibly have no better chance in 4 years.

There's a big difference in 1 year for the Ashes and 4 years for a WC.

You think they would say to Finch " Finchy, you've had a great WC but you won't be there for the next one so see ya later".

Not going to happen.

I reckon our WC record stands for itself.

But then a tournament with quarter finals just keeps those poor teams in longer, any format will be wrong when the majority of sides aren't playing great.
And that's the problem, not enough strong teams at ODI level, the bottom 6 teams just can't go for long enough which is why they excel at T20 level.
