England in general don't seem to have a clue where they're going with regards one-day cricket at the moment. The reaction to Trott not being available for this series is a good example; instead of simply bringing Carberry in to open and moving Bell from 2 to 3, we decide that moving Root up to 3, bringing in an extra batsman in Ballance at 4 and then dropping our spinner is the best solution. Does anyone really think we should go into the World Cup with Root as the lone spinner? No, so why are we doing it now?
So that he can be a 6th bowling option in the world cup because there may be games when it turns out we want spin both ends for a stint in the middle overs and he needs to bowl 6 overs.
He needs the experience of bowling more than Tredwell and now he's in the test side (well he was) he's not going to get it at Yorkshire.
