    Stuart Clark replaces Brett Lee

    Brett Lee is the first big name to pull out of the World Cup, after doctors warned him against bowling for the next three months. Stuart Clark has been picked as his replacement.

    Since the ICC has relaxed its rules to allow teams to replace players (and not bring them back when fit) even after the squads had been named, most teams have chosen to name players not entirely fit. Just sample some of these names. You could get a half-decent playing XI from them - Symonds, Ponting, Clarke, Hayden, Vaughan, Anderson, Lewis, Oram, Pathan, Agarkar, Yuvraj, Shoaib, Asif, Gul and Sarwan. Ignoring Bangladesh and Zimbabwe, it seems like Sri Lanka and South Africa are the only teams without any injury worries!

    My World Cup currently-injured (and undecided) XI would be (in batting order): Hayden, Clarke, Ponting, Sarwan, Yuvraj, Symonds, Oram, Agarkar, Shoaib, Anderson, Asif. There's no wicket-keeper. The one I hate the most in that list is Hayden. So I'd pick him as the 'keeper.
