    Yep. Ideally it's Bangladesh and NZ who proceed but I'd put my money on Australia and England. Hopefully it comes down to knockouts and NRR and that sort of stuff, always fun to see.

    No Sodhi and no Henry. Both of these guys would get a start for a few other ODI teams. The batting might be average and includes Ronchi!!!!, but there is plenty of bowling depth.

    Great to see those three back ... it feels like a really long time since they've played for NZ!

    Amazing, but not unexpected, that Ronchi gets a spot. Surely with the amount of time until we play again after this, his international swansong.

    You're joking right?

    Ronchi is the worst international cricketer going around, Latham isn't a one day player. Neil Broom has proven not to be up to it. Anderson shouldn't be there, he hasn't proven anything since coming back from injury. And please don't get me started on that bowling group.

    The sooner Hesson and Pizza Boy are fired the better, they have lost the plot

    1. Martin Guptill
    2. Tom Latham
    3. Kane Williamson (c)
    4. Ross Taylor
    5. Neil Broom
    6. Corey Anderson
    7. Colin de Grandhomme
    8. Mitchell Santner
    9. Adam Milne
    10. Jeetan Patel
    11. Trent Boult

    Reserves:
    Mitchell McClenaghan
    Tim Southee
    Luke Ronchi
    Jimmy Neesham

    It's not a terrible squad. Henry's absence is a little baffling, though. Along with Boult and Milne, they make up the three best ODI fast bowlers we have - so it's a bit stupid to see him miss out. Moves I would have made:

    Henry in for Southee
    Bruce in for Broom
    Blundell in for Ronchi
    Kuggeleijn in for McClenaghan
    Maybe Worker in the squad as well. Possibly for someone like Neesham or just a direct swap with Latham.

    oh i see what you did there.

    i implied englands batsman may get to 500 v bangladesh but because i didn't specify it you implied that infact englands somewhat underwhelming bowling attack may come in for some welly instead. very cunning indeed. this of course all driven by the fact that you are somewhat of a flip flopping bangladesh fan.

    a ha ha ha ha....
