    Wright
    Turner
    Fleming
    Crowe
    Sutcliffe
    Reid
    Cairns
    Taylor
    Hadlee
    Parore/Smith
    Vettori

    I was thinking about this a while ago. I admit, it's perhaps the most strangely balanced team of all time, with Parore or Smith at 10, Vettori 11, and not a single specialist pace bowler (not an all-rounder) in the side. However, I can't see how this is a bad thing. For whatever reason, many of the best pace bowlers in NZ history have been allrounders. Hadlee, Cairns, Reid and Taylor would all go close on bowling alone and their all-round abilities make them even easier to select. The team therefore has incredible batting depth and an excellent 4-pronged pace attack.

    I'm not that good with NZ, as you can tell.

    Not a bad side but Chats was just a donkey really. If I had to pick a team to play for my life in a test match I'd want attackers so have Bond instead of Chats.

    yeah bond hasn't played a heck of a lot of tests though, also taken account how well he bowled with hadlee and he would of been alot more succesful if hadlee wasn't bowling at the other end(which is definately not a bad thing!)

    Definitely. Although Bond has not played many tests, when he is fit he if easily the next best bowler behind Hadlee.

    Yeah he was good in combo with Paddles. Javed Miandad once said he would like to take Chats back to Pakistan with him to use as a bowling machine in the nets. He was a poor man's Glenn McGrath really who would frustrate batsmen into errors but Hadlee and Bond would just blast sides out in no time.

    Don't joke. He's taken more test wickets, behind Hadlee, than any other NZers.
