    Well that goes to highlight our lack of depth of quality spinners. Wiseman's useful on a helpful pitch but by no means brilliant...we really need another quality spinner to back up Vettori with Dan being so injury prone, Wiseman isn't the answer IMO.

    Reuben for Wiseman.. but thats the future.. but really Som we have no one as a backup for Dan or Support.. Walker tried wasnt upto it.. Haslam isint good enough, Morland neither..B Martin.. i havent heard much of him..

    Is Cricinfo down? I can't get a single page to load. Even on pinging, it gives an error-
    Code:
    >ping www.cricinfo.com
    Unknown host www.cricinfo.com.

    Don't be so pessimistic Mate !! SL doesn't have Murali either !!

    I am expecting 2 tight contests , where one will be won by the team that seizes the last couple of sessions and the other being washed out by the Windy Wellington thunderstoms !!

    But Jason your batting strength has far more experience and strength than we do at the moment.. same goes for our bowling too really..

    As it is Mate, its all on paper !! Until they come out and play to what they are capable of that's all it is - potential but performing on the day when they are needed to is another matter.

    Home conditions should suit NZ bowlers , better IMO, however much our seamers may try !
