This is a list of the squads picked for the 2007 Cricket World Cup. This was the eighth Cricket World Cup tournament and was held between 14 March and 28 April 2007. The sixteen teams were asked to announce their final squads by 13 February 2007. Changes were allowed after this deadline at the discretion of the ICCs Technical Committee in necessary cases, such as due to player injury. In order to aid the teams to select the final fifteen, teams were given the option to announce a thirty man squad by mid-January, with the understanding that the final squad would be picked from within these thirty players. However this was not strictly adhered to—several of England's final fifteen came from outside the initial thirty, for example.
... Zimbabwe's 15 man squad was announced on 14 February only one player remains from the 2003 squad ...
Famous quotes containing the words cup, world and/or cricket:
“I write mainly for the kindly race of women. I am their sister, and in no way exempt from their sorrowful lot. I have drank [sic] the cup of their limitations to the dregs, and if my experience can help any sad or doubtful woman to outleap her own shadow, and to stand bravely out in the sunshine to meet her destiny, whatever it may be, I shall have done well; I have not written this book in vain.”
—Amelia E. Barr (18311919)
“All the world over, I will back the masses against the classes.”
—W.E. (William Ewart)
“All cries are thin and terse;
The field has droned the summers final mass;
A cricket like a dwindled hearse
Crawls from the dry grass.”
—Richard Wilbur (b. 1921)
