    NZ squad

    Only just found this subforum. Kick this off with the eternal words of Scott Styris on Anton Devcich:

    Scott Styris ‏@scottbstyris Feb 16
    @trem91: @Sdoull:Great to see @BigCall13 in the NZ T20WC squad. Had to be done, because he is better than everyone else they just work harder
    Oh yeah, squad:
    Brendon McCullum (captain), Corey Anderson, Trent Boult, Anton Devcich, Martin Guptill, Roneel Hira, Mitchell McClenaghan, Nathan McCullum, Kyle Mills, Colin Munro, James Neesham, Luke Ronchi, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, Kane Williamson.

    As much as T20 is pretty meh, the last one was on at a convenient time of night and was quite good to follow. We struggled a bit last time (especially those awful ties) but the bowling attack is better now and Anderson + Neesham should give some much-needed lower order power.

    Yeah, I'm much happier now that Taylor is coming in early rather than being used as a late hitter - McCullum, Anderson, Neesham, Ronchi are far better at that role than he is.

    Also, Kane Williamson should open with Guptill or even Devcich.

    I hope they make Devcich and Hira room together.

    As much as it pains me to say this - but Kane has no place in a T20 team, there is no place for an anchor batsman for people to bat around.

    His Antoness needs to play (posts you never thought you'd make).
    1) Ross is Boss.
    2) See point 1.

    Leading the charge against nuances being used in posts.

    Overrated XI M Bracewell, Burns, Rahane, Don Voges, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaul

    I'd bat Wonky ahead of Neesham every day of the week in T20
    Direbirds FTW!

    nah, he's capable of striking over 100 by nurdling and playing clever boundary shots - and he can play shots to hit out. he's a fair way from the odi slowpoke of a few years ago. plus he's a better spinner and fielder than devcich. as long as he opens i think he and the team will be fine. it's not like we lack blokes who can smoke it through raw power.

    I know I'm a massive fanboy, but Latham really should be in the t20 squad. Opening batsman replacing opening batsman, good player of spin, has been on a limited overs tour of the subcontinent, can keep...etc.

    So dumb of Canterbury to bat both him and Fulton in the middle order in the HRV cup.

    I've changed my mind neither of them should play - my new team as follows:

    1 Guptil
    2 Baz
    3 Taylor
    4 Anderson
    5 Munro
    6 Neesham
    7 Ronchi
    8 NMac
    9 Seamer
    10 Seamer
    11 Seamer

    I've seen Kane open for ND vs Wellington in a game I went to with my old man. He scored 52 off 42 balls. Which given the pies Wellington were bowling was conservative batting. The other ND batsman batted around him and they scored 170 which was too much for an insipid wellington batting line up to chase. Only Franklin looked likely that day to make runs.

    Would actually take KW over Taylor at number 3, tbh.

    I'd go something like:

    Latham
    Guptill
    KW
    Baz
    Anderson
    Neesham
    Ronchi
    NMac
    Southee
    McCleneghan
    Seamer

    lets not get carried away here. Taylor is in a T20 slump but he's a better player at the format than KW and Latham.

    I think you are missing the world's number 1 and 7 ranked T20 batsmen.
