How would "Yorkshire" fare in the ICC Champions Trophy?

Now that the ICC Champions Trophy is fully underway, it has registered on me that 14 players in the tournament currently play or have represented Yorkshire CCC. Quite a feat where very few domestic clubs worldwide, if any can boast.

England: Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, Adil Rashid, Liam Plunkett, David Willey
Australia: Aaron Finch, Glenn Maxwell, Travis Head, Mitchell Starc
South Africa: David Miller, Morne Morkel, Imran Tahir
New Zealand: Kane Williamson
India: Yuvraj Singh

With Peter Handscomb in the country and technically on standby for Australia, "Yorkshire" have a full 15 man squad. For standby players, Gary Ballance (England contracted player) and Tim Bresnan (back in the ECB radar) can be drafted in should injuries occur.

My question to the CMS-arati, how would the "Yorkshire XV" fare in the ICC Champions Trophy against the rest?

This is probably the most balanced XI I can come up with:

Aaron Finch
Jonny Bairstow (w)
Kane Williamson (c)
Joe Root
Glenn Maxwell
David Miller
Yuvraj Singh
David Willey
Liam Plunkett
Mitchell Starc
Morne Morkel

Travis Head, Adil Rashid, Imran Tahir, Peter Handscomb
