You pick the best team available to you. If the selectors do not do that they are not doing their jobs. Equally it is not as if KP or Trott was poached / sponsored by the ECB from SA, they came of their own accord. We are not the NZ rugby team after all.

But that does not mean I have to be pleased with it.
