Butterworth is my allrounder, so comparing him straight up with a bowler is a little harsh
If you guys picked your squads, your 15th-17th players are damn hard to pick
I certainly found that

Many people are describing Failkner as an all-rounder
If he is an all-rounder atm, then so are Butterworth and Copeland with the difference being that the latter 2 are far better bowlers from what I have seen
Reckon that this whole problem exists because Watson wont/cant bowl so people are trying to manufacture a fifth bowling option
I don't understand the point of usman. unless they think he was unsuited to the conditions (why bring him in the first place) if they are going to bat glenn maxwell ahead of cowan, and still pick cowan ahead of usman on a tour as bad as the last one, when will he ever play.
i don't see how henriques has done so poorly he can't make the squad? I'd nearly have him starting.
cowan, warner, hughes, watson, clarke, smith, wade, pattinson, starc, harris, lyon
haddin, doolan, henriques, cummins, bird, siddle. hilf
rogers is already over there if an sos is needed. doolan 3rd for the season, 715 @ 42 best of a bad bunch plus a bit of experience. 10 tests on the hop may be required all the same. i think you need to take 18 due to the fragility of the bowlers. **** a 2nd spinner, not required.

For example, I would prefer to see Rogers in there in place of Cowan but the chances of that happening are pretty much zero
Having said that, judging by Inverarity's comments, it appears that Faulkner is a very strong chance but I just dont rate him very highly so couldnt bring myself to include him
Likewise, Maxwell is Inverarity's love child and may very well go but it would be a travesty on performances to date so have picked O'Keefe and Henriques
Finally, in relation to Wade, I want someone that can catch and the extra couple of runs that he can potentially provide are largely irrelevant
