Haha yeah indeed. The second opening spot and the two non-Anderson seamers the only real debatable picks I guess. The latter probably depends on whether you think Broad has declined or was just struggling with injury/poor form in India. I do think Southee is better than Finn but with him being so similar to Anderson and Broad, picking Finn as the third seamer makes sense. I'm a Compton fan so I'd pick him ahead of Root and McCullum but I'm sure you'll get some opposition to that as well.
