    Latham could come in, though would require a bit more reconfiguration. Don't really want Ronchi down the order again where he's been record-breaking poor, could perhaps bat at 5. Or just Latham as a direct swap for Broom, though he's not familiar with batting at 5 either. I think Fleming suggested Latham at 5 in the NZ team he picked for this tournament.

    This wicket-keeper batsman selection is haunting us.

    The funny thing is even Broom does well against Bangladesh, all but one of his big scores since recall have come against them. I actually don't think he's quite as terrible as he's shown in the last 2 games, he's a sort of low-cost version of Taylor in that he's decent at staying in lower gears and helping build partnerships, but unable to whack it around. He definitely doesn't have the game for an international no.5/6 though.

    I dunno. By dithering over the wicketkeeper business NZ really have brought this on themselves.

    Bangladesh bowling lacks pace. Look at Australia. They had genuine pace, and the Bangladesh batsman struggled. I think New Zealand will win this. It will be funny if Pakistan, Sri Lanka and New Zealand reached the semi finals – teams most people had written off. Mustafizur looks a completely different bowler outside the subcontinent.

    Yes, to my mind that's the most long-standing issue of the current ones, and by frequently rejigging the whole batting lineup while cycling unsuccessfully through various options (keeper bats at 1, 5, 6 or 7), they've made it more difficult to address who else should bat in those spots.

    They did a couple of worthwhile things like try Watling at 5, but erred imo as soon as they brought back Ronchi after that failed. Should have just brought in their preferred domestic keeper at that stage, got him to bat 7 from the outset (i.e. the default wicketkeeper position), and left it at that.

    No, he just looks a different bowler after his injuries. Happens to a lot of bowlers actually

    Latham for Ronchi and Colin for Broom. Gives more batting, hitting and bowling depth.

    Latham is a beast against us. I would want him to sit out this match.

    i'd play latham if bangledesh show up as the sitting duck version of themselves because latham's concentration issues get hidden when the opposition bowling can't sustain pressure

    if bangladesh show up tho then he'll do his usual 30-60 score thing (but that's better than ronchi). i can actually see this being quite tight if bangladesh hold their nerve and get our three batsmen out cheaply.

    completely agree with everyone else on the keeper issue - should have backed one of the junior players and accepted blundell/phillips/cleaver/seifert aren't the finished article because that's ok - the champions trophy is a good sighter for the world cup in two years time. so far NZ have pissed about with the 4 year development cycle.

    It may sound like a crazy idea, but Williamson batting at 5 will reduce many problems with the NZ batting lineup.

    I wanted to reply negatively to this but then I figured it's not actually the worst idea, since modern Williamson is able to strike quite highly even when he first comes to the crease.

    walrus: What will happen if this match gets washed out? Will either somehow be able to make the semifinals? BD can still get through if ENG beat AUS by a certain amount of runs/overs, right?" --- Yes, pretty much. If England beat Australia by a greater margin than they managed against Bangladesh, Bangladesh are through.
    This will be epic

    Hey we're about to start.

    Also, this article made me feel a little sorry for Anderson.

    Needs to work out what type of batsman he wants to be. But it's going to be hard for him to re-find his feet both in NZ domestic cricket and for NZ at international level. County cricket? IPL probably doesn't help his game a lot at this point.
