    So Jesse Ryder has got his head sorted has he? That is good news if he has.

    I am more then looking forward to see how Shane Bond goes.

    Wat time do the tests start? maybe they have no room for it due to tri nations/ rugby importance.

    Even if they don't have space to show it on Sky Sport 1, you'd think they could put it on Sport 2 or 3.

    I don't think a series that was 5 years ago has much relevance here.

    By "beat the crap out of", do you mean the 1 wicket win in the last game in Auckland?

    That was an amazing game I agree (man it hurt to be at the ground for that one), but the top scorer for Zimbabwe was the champion Andy Flower, who of course no longer plays for Zimbabwe, and in case you hadn't noticed, they have sadly gone sharply downhill since that great game.

    Must say I'm fully opposed to the series (I'm a Politics student, what do you expect?) so even if it is on Sky I may choose not to watch it.

    2. J Marshall
    3. H Marshall
    4. Vincent/Styris
    5. Fleming (c)
    6. McCullum (wk)
    7. Oram/Styris (if not at No 4)
    8. Vettori
    9. Mills
    10. Franklin
    11. Bond

    Alright! Pick it to pieces!

    my test team. . .

    1. Cumming
    } give them enough goes - need consistent opening partnership.
    2. J Marshall
    3. H Marshall - no questions asked, he is the one player who has his spot in tact
    4. S Fleming
    5. S Styris - was the incumbent before injury, give a chance to prove fitness.
    6. J Oram - should be there as a batsmen at least see how comfortable he is with his bowling. hopefully he plays as an allrounder. needs to get overs under his belt
    7. B McCullum
    8. D Vettori
    9. J Franklin
    10.S Bond - i think he is ready to return to international cricket - needs to keep getting games under his belt
    11.C Martin - i prefer him over mills anyday!! need to keep bowling him and see how he goes, if not performing probably will go with mills.

    I'm a huge fan of Styris, but I can't see them leaving out Vincent after his last performance.

    Yeha it's hard to go past that. How has he been in domestic? I haven't been following, TBH.

    Actually, it'd be a hard call between Styris and Oram. In my mind, they're about level, but Oram is also left handed so that mixes things up a bit.

    Oh, the dilemma!

    Yeah.. the main selection headache will be who to leave out with Styris, Astle, Oram and Vincent effectively taking two spots. It will be a toss-up between Oram and Vincent at 6, and i think Astle will play as he has a very strong record against Zimbabwe in both forms of the game.

    If they are looking at their strongest team all-round, then Vincent would surely be chosen instead of Oram. Only due to the fact that Vincent has been performing well recently and is match fit (batting wise). Oram could be selected purely to get some batting time before the one-dayers, as i'm not sure he would bowl much so early in his comeback.

    The team i think will be chosen:

    Cumming
    J Marshall
    H Marshall
    Fleming
    Astle
    Vincent
    McCullum
    Vettori
    J Franklin
    Bond
    Martin

    Bond and Martin to take the new ball, with Franklin first change. Vettori and Astle complete the slow bowling options. That should be enough firepower you would think. When Oram is back to full-time bowling, it should provide Fleming with more than enough quality bowling options.

    That's my two cents

    I'l ring Sky's head office today and make sure i get the full details about what they are covering. (Cue crusading music)

    If Vincent and Oram are both fully fit, I wouldn't be picking Vincent...
