    Hauritz may struggle to find a spot in the Qld side when he gets back. He's a handy one day bowler but has not proved himself at 4 day level. Still he's abetter bowler than White. I agree, MacGill should have been there. Hogg is about the same quality as Hauritz and White.

    MacGill IMO is probably a lot better bowler then what he is given credit for. I am 100% sure he would have played more for any other country had he not been Australian.

    I don't think NZ"s batting is a huge worry. Richardson will be looking to score more than last time around, Styris has been one of our more consistant batsman lately - if he can stop going hard at the ball early on he will score some runs in Australia. Oram has a lot of potential as well, I don't think he'll be 'found out'. Our lack of a second opener is a real worry and Astle hasn't quite been the same since his return.

    McMillan shouldn't tour Australia. It's time the we looked elsewhere. Our lack of decent bowlers is the real worry.

    I wonder if Hauritz would have been picked if the series was 1 all instead of 2 zip?

    I'd have felt much more comfortable if McGill or Hogg had been called up, if that had been the case!

    "Well, Richardson was weak last time he was here. Fleming only had the one good innings (although he has improved). I'd be surprised if Styris makes runs against Australia. Oram will finally get found out. No Chris Cairns will have a big imput, and McMillan actually did well when he was here last time. The only one I expect (alongside Fleming) to score consistent runs will be Astle, and that is if he can stay fit for the whole tour."

    That was 3 & a half years ago!, you're automatically presuming things will just be the same? What if I say that McGrath will be just about as non-existent as he was last time despite his recent form?

    You can't discount these players performances last time they were here. I did say that Fleming had improved, didn't I. Also, it should be noted that Styris wasn't here last time, so how can that be presuming he'll do the same, when he hasn't done anything in the first place? Same with Oram.

    Well who else would've been picked, White?

    Unless they expected that Warne was indestructable then they obviously had some designs on White or Hauritz playing if they were needed. Maybe the selectors rate them higher than some of the members of this forum. I personally would have played White. He can bat and might be able to make up some of those extra runs he would concede.
    I dont think it is going to matter in the end given the rain and forecasts, the test could turn into a lengthened limited overs match.

    Well, it was a choice between the 2 as spinner when Warne was ruled out - regardless of the series score.

    Richardson averaged about 30 in his first taste of the Australian attack, and judging by the way he handled Harmison and Flintoff I'd hope he can bump that up a notch. Missing out in Bangladesh will just confirm to him that he's still not very good at playing attractively, which should be a good mindset heading into Brisbane. Anything Sinclair does will be a bonus.

    Styris loves a flat pitch, although the Aussies will already be smelling blood in the water about getting him forcing away from his body. McCullum could surprise a few Aussies - it's unlikely he'll be intimidated and he has the shots to succeed over there. Astle's main concern is this LB problem that isn't going away, and is something I'd expect McGrath and Gillespie to exploit.

    from what ive seen off mccullum so far, i think he is a very fine young batsman. i wouldnt be surprised if he goes on to become one of the better batsmen in the world in the future.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!
