    Yeah it's a fair enough pick. Definitely think he'll add more than Ellis if he gets a game, anyway.

    Agreed, Bracewell is trash in the OD format. Selecting him over Matt Henry makes absolutely no sense to me.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Butler chosen as the cover for Boult.

    Look out for Latham to pop up in a bit of English YB40 with Scotland now the tests are done.

    Butler selected ahead of Henry? May as well give the latter a crack, IMO

    Henry is a walking back injury.

    Had surgery last year didn't he for it.

    He has corrected his run up somewhat to make it less bad for his back but it is still bad.

    He basically dawdles into the crease and then jumps and whips it down at 130ks.

    Ellis was also a walking back injury (five stress fractures) until he had the pins/wires/bone graft fusion surgery Bond had.

    Henry's op exactly the same with the same surgeon I believe, so if he breaks, at least it won't be in the same place.

    Haha yeah when I think of Butler I tie him in a bit with PEWS these days and smile. Home-schooled, close to 100% in maths, spent a lot of time bowling in a backyard net by himself. On paper he should be a very guileful and damn useful LO option (at the very least), if he was slightly more willing to play the numbers and ingratiate.

    Instead, that 2nd England T20 suggested there's still hyper-competitive rage bubbling away in Butler, even intensified by how everything's panned out. Scratch the surface, the whole 'I've mellowed, I'm much more skilful' line is almost certainly a lie.

    I didn't realise I'd actually earned a reputation as a Butler fan. What have I become?

    Should've been picked ahead of Ellis, Bracewell and probably even Boult in the first place though. There, I said it.

    Any chance of that guy who scored 222 in the LA game getting a shot? Can't recall who it was.

    Noticed some **** other than me put that up actually -

    No, Latham will be paged in from his Scotland stint for any top-order injury by the sounds.

    Out of favour. Playing over in Warwickshire and hasn't been doing too badly.

    Probably the fourth best limited overs spinner NZ has, however. I'd rate Vettori, NcCullum and Williamson ahead of him.
