Tremlett, Finn, Broad and Kerrigan ? Well we've won the series so why not give them a go and rest the others ?

Well this team has surprised me, thought they'd give Bairstow one last test. Lets see what Woakes and Kerrigan are made of, good luck to both of them.

Woakes as the all-rounder. FC averages are high 30s batting, mid 20s bowling so perhaps he's the right sort of material ?

Interesting selection. Unusual to see 2 spinners in England.
Puts a bit more pressure on the top order (who haven't been fantastic) but hopefully that might them bat a bit more sensibly...

He's always bowled pretty tightly whenever I've seen him in the shorter form of the game and I felt he was probably the pick of the bowlers in the warm up game in Queenstown.

Whether he's a wicket taker at this level remains to be seen...
