If we'd chosen the bowling attack on the basis of fielding ability it would be Anderson, Broad, Swann and one of the other three playing. I think it has to be a consideration. If a bowler is expected to contribute in at least 2 disciplines then why is it ok that a batsman contributes just one a la Cook? Vaughan gets a let off since he can bowl spin and Strauss since he is a good slip fielder.
