You've all forgotten Rahkeem Cornwall!

SouthpawMark:
1. Sir Alistair Cook (I think hes still good enough)
2. Cow Corner Warner
3. Williamson
4. Labuschagne
5. Kohli
6. Sir Benjamin Stokes
7. Pants
8. Jadeja
9. Cummins
10. Starc
11. Bumrah

Manormanic:
I reckon there are fewer genuine contenders now than there were a year or two back, so its a more nuanced selection.  Nailed on certs?  Well, I doubt anyone would argue against Williamson, Kohli, Stokes and Cummins, and there wouldn't be many opposing Watling right now.  Smith is also a near cert if you are prepared to overlook the cheating, shameless sooking and general disregard for the spirit of the game.  Meanwhile, there is no stand out spinner, nor are there any really strong contenders for the openers berths - indeed, I debated starting my line up with two of Pujara, Williamson and Labuschange on the basis that the OP's allowed one place either way.  That would allow:

Pujara
Williamson
Kohli
Smith (or Labuschagne)
Root
Stokes
Watling
Cummins
Rabada
Harmer
Boult/Bumrah

But eventually, my selection (with Smith omitted on moral grounds - or lack of morals grounds):

Edgar
Pujara
Williamson*
Kohli
Root
Stokes
Watling
Cummins
Rabada
Harmer
Boult or Bumrah

Balls... I forgot Smith.

Labuschagne to open, and Smith to go 4. Sorry Sir Alistair.

Buzz:
Based on the current rankings

Warner
Pujara (because of the dearth of opening batsmen)
Williamson
Kholi
Smith
Stokes
Watling
Jadaja
Holder
Cummins
Rabada

Stokes probably lucky to be in the team...
