Archer over Willey is an easy and obvious choice, surprised at Dawson's inclusion

Must have been a difficult task getting it down to those 15 but now it's even harder to choose the starting 11.

Yes a logical squad, Willey and Denly not up to it and Dawson, Vince and Curran mainly cover for injuries.

If all fit then which two join Dawson and Vince on the bench?

Archer or Wood ( who are both similar) but one more pace bowler probably

Think Plunkett is a sure starter as he takes wickets.

Depends on conditions and opposition, surely?

Strong looking squad.

Very strong 15. I doubt there is a stronger one in world cricket and especially on our soil.

Surely the starting 11 for each game has to be taken on the ground, the opposition and the conditions.

A big ask on the captain and whoever he listens to.

If I was Morgan I would lock myself in a room the day before the game with Jos Buttler and the coach and decide on the starting eleven and not have a selector in sight. They are the brains behind this winning team.
