That's a fairly good bowling line-up, Vettori is the best 20/20 bowler in the world I feel. Mills is a good ODI bowler, I think he is ranked in the top five. And Ian Butler finds the block-hole quite well. Also Butler and Mills are very good hitters of the cricket ball.
Except that top 4 will hardly ever fire against good quality bowling. I mean god two of them got owned off consecutive balls by Mascarenhas in the IPL. Oram isn't a number 5 and if he's moved to the number 7 slot that means he has to bowl and he has an awful record with the ball in T20.
