Wagner's failure also does a bit of damage to the 'select 4 seamers' argument. There's no way he's a better bowling option than Vettori (he's not even more likely to take wickets than DV). Given that Martin has declined into a medium pacer, and Gillespie is perpetually injured, who else is there banging on the door for the 4th seamer's role? Milne can't stay on the park for more than a couple of games in a row, Arnel is completely toothless at test level...unless you're prepared to give someone like Ian Butler a chance, the cupboard is pretty bare.
Mitch, or Hamish Bennett when he's fit.
