So with the T20 World Cup just around the corner, I thought it would be cool to see who FanFootys squad of choice is. With the Australian selectors on ice, I think we will probably name a better squad than they will  :-X.

How it Works
So every few days a poll will be put up the top with names of players and positions (as you can see, it's currently All Rounders). Each position will be voted on (polls running for 3 days each) and so many players will be chosen depending on position to make up the 15 man squad. 4 specialist batsmen will be chosen, 3 Seam Bowlers will be chosen, 2 Spin Bowler will be chosen, 1 'keeper will be chosen and 2 All Rounders will be chosen. That makes a squad of 12. From there 3 'wild card' players will be picked from a poll that includes the 5th and 6th most voted batsman, the 4th and 5th most voted bowlers, the 3rd most voted spinner, the 3rd most voted all rounder and the 2nd most voted 'keeper.

All Rounders (2)
Shane Watson
Glenn Maxwell

James Faulkner
Mitch Marsh
Marcus Stoinis
Dan Christian


Spin Bowlers (2)
Nathan Lyon
Cameron Boyce

Adam Zampa
Steve O'Keefe
Brad Hogg
Xavier Doherty (lol)


Batsmen (4)
David Warner
Steve Smith
Aaron Finch
Usman Khawaja

George Bailey
Chris Lynn
Travis Head
Shaun Marsh

Brad Hodge
Adam Voges
Joe Burns

Seam Bowlers (3)
John Hastings
Shaun Tait
Scott Boland
Kane Richardson
Joel Paris

Andrew Tye
James Pattinson

Clint McKay
Josh Hazlewood

Wicket Keepers (1)
Mathew Wade
Tim Paine
Ben Dunk
Peter Neville
Cameron Bancroft

Wild Card Players (3)
James Faulkner
Adam Zampa
George Bailey
Chris Lynn
Travis Head
Shaun Marsh
Adam Voges
Josh Hazlewood




FF Squad
1. Glenn Maxwell
2. Shane Watson
3. Nathan Lyon
4. Cameron Boyce
5. Aaron Finch
6. Steve Smith
7. David Warner
8. Usman Khawaja
9. John Hastings
10. James Pattinson
11. Andrew Tye
12.
13.
14.

Other than that feel free to to discuss the World Cup in general and who would make your squad. Also please point out any players I might have missed there. Thanks  :)

AR: Marsh, Watson
Bats: Khawaja, Lynn, Marsh, Voges
Fasts: Paris, Tye, Behrendorff
Spin: Hoggy, Boyce
Keeper: Bancroft

This team would guarantee at least a semi.

So the first results are in...

Shane Watson (RHB/RFM)   - 6 (24%)
Glenn Maxwell (RHB/RFS)   - 11 (44%)
Mitchell Marsh (RHB/RF)   - 1 (4%)
James Faulkner (RHB/RMF)   - 4 (16%)
Marcus Stoinis (RHB/RM)   - 2 (8%)
Dan Christian (RHB/RMF)   - 1 (4%)

Meaning that Watto and Maxi are on the plane to India, but we say goodbye to Mitch Marsh, Marcus Stoinis and Dan Christian. James Faulkner though is the first wild card.

Will now put spinners up, so you have until Friday to vote.

Nathan Lyon   - 6 (33.3%)
Cameron Boyce   - 5 (27.8%)
Adam Zampa   - 4 (22.2%)
Steve O'Keefe   - 1 (5.6%)
Brad Hogg   - 2 (11.1%)
Xavier Doherty   - 0 (0%)

So Nathan Lyon and Cam Boyce into the squad, while Zampa will go in as a wild card.

Will put the Batsmen up now.

Hey nrich, the poll will only allow me to select 3 options, whereas the OP suggests I should be picking 4

http://www.cricket.com.au/news/australia-world-t20-squad-twenty20-world-cup-peter-nevill-ashton-agar-matthew-wade-adam-zampa-india/2016-02-09

AUSTRALIA'S WORLD T20 SQUAD: Steve Smith (c), David Warner (vc), Ashton Agar, Nathan Coulter-Nile, James Faulkner, Aaron Finch, John Hastings, Josh Hazlewood, Usman Khawaja, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Peter Nevill, Andrew Tye, Shane Watson, Adam Zampa

The selections of Neville replacing Wade and Agar a real surprise.  Also the dropping of Lynn and Head although they did not fire against India although had limited opportunities raises eyebrows.

Batting depth looks challenged in this squad although with the number of all rounders we will bat deep but would hate to see them coming in 2/20 odd.
