Sometimes the other team must just want to give up out of shear embarrassment
Hahaha I'm glad we're selected our side based on straw man's humour. I'm okay with that. Play on Rob!
Watling isn't even a first choice in ND's side, and he's actually bemused himself that he continues to get picked in T20 sides internationally.
I dunno, I don't feel Nicol or Watling offer anything that Vettori, McCullum etc can't do themselves at 6 or 7. If one bowler doesn't come off, we have back-ups. If the order I posted doesn't do the job, no one will.
