I've got a top order of Tres/Roy/Root/KP/Buttler/Flintoff/Colly. Not going to get in on batting alone, but as a fielder and my sixth bowler and a level head and possibly a captain option he gets in. I accept his batting stats are a little weak.

Nothing against Morgan, he's a good pick. Had some big batting droughts over the years though.

I'm betting that when you do the Indian, Aussie etc equivalent, their top five's will be better than that!

Yes, none of these will get in a World XI. None on the whole all time England team will.
