I'd definitely pick Martin ahead of Wagner in the hypothetical event that we play 4 seamers. Would do a good job of keeping it tight while Boult/Southee caused havoc at the other end.
Anderson's selection reminds me a bit of Ryder's. Back in 2008, BFJ had done sfa in the previous couple of seasons, and there was absolutely no basis to pick him for the ODI squad (he averaged about 24 in list A cricket at the time). But the selectors, having seen him bat, just decided that there was no point in leaving him outside of the team any longer. It feels kinda the same for Anderson. Even though he's had only moderate success this season, the selectors have decided that his introduction to intl cricket has been delayed for long enough. I'm hoping he does OK. T20i's should be an easy environment for him to come in and just have fun anyway. Hope he doesn't bowl too much though. From what I saw of him in that t20 for ND the other week, he couldn't land the ball on a picnic blanket.
