    State of Origin Squads named

    New Zealand captain Stephen Fleming and Otago wicketkeeper Gareth Hopkins will lead the South and North teams respectively in the State of Origin one-day cricket match at New Plymouth on Sunday.


    The match at Pukekura Park will help the New Zealand selectors finalise their Black Caps squad for the Twenty20 match and one-day series against Australia starting next week.

    Wellington skipper Fleming returns to the South for the match as he began his first class career with Canterbury while Hopkins heads back north. He made his first class debut with the Northern Conference team and then Northern Districts.

    New Zealand selection panel manager Sir Richard Hadlee said the game would provide some excellent match-ups and allow some a last opportunity to impress.

    A number of players who would have been in contention for selection are either being rested for the Australian tour, recovering from injuries or rehabilitating niggling complaints after an intensive State Shield programme.

    Several players from the State Shield final, played at the same ground a day earlier between Northern Districts and Central Districts, will be involved in the match.

    The North team will be coached by Wellington mentor Vaughn Johnson while Northern Districts coach Bruce Blair takes charge of the South.

    AdvertisementAdvertisementTeams:

    North: Gareth Hopkins (captain), Jamie How, Mathew Sinclair, Hamish Marshall, Lou Vincent, Ross Taylor, James Franklin, Tama Canning, Andre Adams, Daryl Tuffey, Jeetan Patel, Graeme Aldridge.

    South: Stephen Fleming (captain), Michael Papps, Craig Cumming, Peter Fulton, Jarrod Englefield, Craig McMillan, Aaron Redmond, Nathan McCullum, Hayden Shaw, Brent Hefford, Chris Martin, Warren McSkimming.
    GO THE BLACK CAPS!!!

    Wilson must be a dead cert or not considered for possible international selection. Vincent in without having played for a few weeks now.

    I'm backing south to win with those sides. Strong batting with in-form Cumming, Fleming, Mcmillan and of course Papps.

    Why no Brendon McCullum in South team? Is he being rested?

    what about Shane Bond? Is he still unfit? Why is he not playing this match?
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Yeah Bond's comeback has gone a bit slower than people first thought, I think he ruled himself out of the Australia tour.

    i can't believe he was picked either - don't tell me NZ Cricket still think he is a very promising leg-spinning allrounder despite barely touching the ball this season, i mean selecting him last year was bad enough but this year when he has been playing as a specialist batsman and hasn't even crossed 50 once is a dead-set joke

    I hope it isn't a sign that Gaffney will retire at the end of this season, he is in the best form of his life. It would be a real shame.

    To be fair to Redmond, he had a good SC, where he averaged over 37 and played very consistently.

    Yea, but he bats bloody slowly. Not what you want in a one day exhibition game. He has the talent but his form does not warrant selection.

    Gaffaney is very unlucky IMO..............

    what's this talk of retirement - he's sub 30 still & going better than ever!!!!

    in reality I don't see this match having any bearing on the side for the 20/20 or ODIs...........all the usual suspects will be selected like Astle, Styris, Cairns & McMillan as they have all proven their slogging ability in the 10/10 match - even if they can't put together anything in the longer game atm!!!!!

    I'd still like to see an end of season match in the longer form - then some of these guys may have a real chance at higher honours.........

    With Gaffers, There was an article in the ODT saying that this might be his last season as he will join the police. Although he could come back after that, but there would be no guarantees with that.
