    Champions Trophy XI

    1. Dhawan
    2. Fakhar
    3. Root
    4. Williamson
    5. Kohli
    6. Stokes
    7. Sarfraz
    8. Rashid
    9. Amir
    10. Bhuvi
    11. Hassan Ali

    Picking Fakhar above Tamim because of impact knocks. Root, Williamson and Kohli in no particular order as I am not sure. Had to pick one spinner for the sake of it otherwise Hazlewood is a good shout.

    Very hard to think of an allrounder. Stokes didn't bowl well in this tournament.

    What if all the switches get stuck on 'destroy'?

    Junaid a bit unlucky to miss out? I think it's even between him and Bhuvi.

    Amir is the all rounder obv.

    Haze, second highest wicket taker in the tournament makes nobodies list. Not the CA list, the Cricinfo list or this list.

    And you know what I'm not sure I disagree.

    Yeah I really wanted to avoid picking Stokes because his bowling figures were horrible, but it's really difficult. The best I can come up with Hafeez, but despite bowling accurately and putting the clamps on a few times he only took the one wicket, and his tournament batting stats do flatter him a bit. I'm going to roll that way anyway I think.

    1. Dhawan
    2. Fakhar
    3. Williamson
    4. Root
    5. Kohli
    6. Hafeez
    7. Sarfraz
    8. Amir
    9. Bhuvi
    10. Hassan
    11. Tahir

    I'd still take stokes as among the best middle order players. Picking three #3s is a bit of a cheat

    I actually wanted to point out its only Ind-Pak there. No SL or BD player even. Also a reflection of the number of rain affected games the other sides had AFAIC

    No one really stood out to be honest with either the bat or ball.
