    Here's a poser??

    My greatest NZ test team of all-time

    Glenn Turner
    John Wright
    Andrew Jones
    Martin Crowe
    Stephen Fleming (c)
    Chris Cairns
    Richard Hadlee
    Ian Smith (w.k)
    Daniel Vettori
    Shane Bond
    Jack Cowie

    My question is .....How do you think the above team would fair against the current English or Australian test teams????

    I would say it would give both teams a good run for their money. Too close to call, IMO. I still think their lack of a really world class spinner might affect them.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    In my opinion, and it's only an opinion, you can't ever leave Bert Sutcliffe, Donnelly or John R. Reid out of an all-time NZ side, and this side woiuld be stronger with them in it. They are absolute legends.

    I would put up.....

    1. Charles Dempster
    2. Glen Turner
    3. Bert Sutcliffe
    4. Martin Crowe
    5. John Reid
    6. Bevan Congdon
    7. Bruce Taylor
    8. Chris Cairns
    9. Richard Hadlee
    10. Ian Smith
    11. Jack Cowie/Shane Bond

    ....and expect them to wipe the floor with any team in the world today.

    PS On a really hostile wicket, I may drop Taylor or Cairns and include both fast bowlers at number 11

    On a wicket expected to take spin, I would take Vettori and make the same change as far as dropping is concerned.
