    I could never understand that statement. Unless your openers are averaging 0, I assure you he can. Ask Geraint Jones.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Sure you have a point,but wat im saying is that imo he is better than who we have tried.
    how many openers have NZ tried who havent worked
    Cumming,Marshall,Vincent,Sinclair,Horne,Bell,Nevin ,Stead,Plus more,i think he can do a better job than eny of those players

    You forgot Pocock, Murray, Hartland, and Vance. The first three, in particular, were breathtaking in their ineptitude.

    yea How looks like a good player but it looks like they dont want to blood new players.
    Fulton,How,Taylor,Ryder all good players to.

    We dont need new ODI openers Astle and Fleming are doing a good enough job and McCullum is valuble lower down the order late in ODI's with his strong hitting and fast running

    For tests I think it needs to be Papps, he's been scoring alot of runs over the last 8 months for 'A' teams, Academies etc.

    How hasn't really pushed on, he'll be disappointed for sure but there's no doubt he's slipped off the radar a little, just when he really needed to hammer the final nail.

    Not sure what the selectors have against Fulton, but they obviously think he's got flaws. I can't understand that when he averages almost double to that of the players they are currently selecting.

    The selectors will be wanting to see some guys score runs consistently this season..I think they'll be looking out for How, Papps, Jesse Ryder & Fulton to step up.

    When I think Papps all that popps into my head is a dent in his helmet and a large bump on his head. I think he would be more than glad if he got the chance to face Brett Lee again
