    Rohit and Warner would be my choice ahead of Bairstow and Roy.
    Butler vs Dhoni would be interesting.

    47 AVG at 92 SR
    Century in every 5.75 matches
    And 1 Double century in every 23 matches ?

    Pretty sure we're electing a cricketing XI not a baseball one.

    Where’s Ross Taylor (average of 54 since 2010)? He’s got the 3rd best ODI average of the decade.

    Doesn't help that your ODI side was largely turd for half the decade. Has been great since then but ultimately enough of your batsmen I suspect fall just short.

    Plus they can't be trusted on unfriendly pitches as much as some of the other batsmen.

    The team logically would be:

    Rohit Sharma
    Warner/Amla
    Kohli
    R Taylor
    AB
    Dhoni (wk)
    Shakib
    Starc
    Malinga
    Boult
    Tahir

    The major problems are the lack of a decent 6th bowler and a very long tail.

    Perhaps open with Sangakkara or QDK and drop Dhoni for another allrounder, or drop Taylor for an allrounder to give another bowling option. This is why I thought Dilshan could open and be the 6th bowler.

    Re the issue with the tail Malinga or Boult could be replaced with someone who bats better, or Tahir replaced replaced by Afridi. It is a shame that Faulkner didn't play more games because he could've been at no 8.

    Then open with Watson instead of Warner

    Rohit and Warner get through reasonably comfortably.

    Now pick your 2 opening bowlers who will usually bowl 10 each.

    Starc and Bumrah.

    Bumrah probably a bit 50/50 based on longevity but all the other options aren't that special.

    A certain Sri Lankan with a WC record almost as good as Starc.

    His WC record is nowhere near as good as Starc if you take out 2007 (which given we're picking a 2010-2019 team, you should).
