I think the best team to be made from the squad is probably:

Cook
Jennings
Root c
Bairstow wk
Ballance
Ali
Stokes
Broad
Jones
Wood
Anderson
I guess they feel Rashid is just not good enough so they've moved on. Tough on him, as he appeared to have progressed in Asia but he's not really impressed in the ODIs or first class this year. Dawson offers some control at least.

Plunkett has all but retired from the longer format, so don't think he was ever in the running.
