    I'm a fan of Lynn, but how can they hide him in the field for 50 overs? Bat first so as he doesn't have to field?
    He's still finding form too. If Hastings takes a simple catch he's still looking for runs.

    Only five specialist batsmen in the whole squad?

    They've managed to hide Fatty Finch for years, Lynn will be sweet

    There is a reason they like him- bowls upwards of 145kmph, a nice bouncer and a handy yorker, plus he can bat quite well for a number 9, great fielder too. His issue is whether he is there yet or whether he needs another season. No doubt he is in our next WC squad probably.

    Toyman is going better than Finch though.

    The next Billy Stanlake. Hasn't he kicked on after being picked solely on Big Bash form...what a star!

    Good to see Finch rewarded for his good form.

    So will this be the first pick side?

    Finch
    Warner
    Smith
    Lynn
    Head
    Marsh
    Stoinis
    Paine
    Starc
    Cummins
    Hazelwood

    I've never been convinced with Zampa but I'm a big believer in having a genuine spinner in your team. Marsh isn't too bad in this caper, Tye is a decent backup for the big 3. Finch is fat and fires about once every 15 innings, i.e when his spot is in jeopardy

    Zampa is a shit long form spinner but very useful in ODI and T20 cricket, I'd have him in there. They will pick Finch, but I wouldn't

    Warner
    Lynn
    Smith
    Head
    Paine
    Stoinis
    Marsh
    Starc
    Cummins
    Zampa
    Haze

    Lynn and Head can swap if needed, personally I wouldn't mind seeing how Lynn goes at the top...he much prefers a hard ball and batting against the quicks. But Head has shown plenty opening in ODIs too.

    They've potentially got a side with plenty of power. Problem is it's a side with plenty of blokes who can get 100 off 70 or get 4 off 2....
