He answered immediately Jos Buttler.
You could not leave him out of that team but bat him higher up the order.
Number 4 and drop Williamson.
Having a cheat at number two winds me up. And he is ugly.

Carey has been marginally better than Buttler this tournament, so he gets in on merit. Buttler is still the best in the world at his role, he’s just not been as majestic as usual in this tournament.
The only other one I’d try to make a case for in the team above is Lockie Ferguson. Been brilliant with the ball for New Zealand. Hard to drop the other 3 quicks, though.

Special mention here too for Shakib Al Hasan. Didn't he scored seven successive half centuries?

Kohli picked on reputation, I suspect. Or by s lot of partisan Indians.
