We've established that he's 23? Hopefully he can string together 2 more solid seasons and get into the side around the age 25. If all goes to plan, he could be in the team for 10 years and average 40+ in tests and 30+ in ODI's.
Sigh. A fan can dream.
Has our next test series even been confirmed? According to Cricinfo the only confirmed fixtures for us in the next 2 years are the CH series and the World Cup.
And Snedden (?) said we'd have 12 tests in the next 18 months.
Look, say what you like about Snedden's tenure at the top of NZC, but I hardly think it's fair for him to be criticised for the lack of tests. We had a Future Tours Program that was intended to ensure a fair distribution of games around the world, but unfortunately some countries can get away with changing the schedule if it inconveniences them, or isn't the cash cow they could milk somewhere else. I wouldn't even blame those countries, as such, I'd blame the spineless ICC who control the game in theory only.

Thats a full strength lineup baby
A pretty formidable one if you ask me. With the likes of Vincent, Taylor, and the red-hot Oram in form. And if Styis can make the same sort of entrance as Oram and Vincent...
Vettori bowling sublimely, Mills and Bond gradually getting back to there best. Gillespie looking like hes got the goods, and a bit of extra pace to boot.
Im picking the Black Caps to make it TWO, i repeat TWO, loses in a row for the Aussies on Sunday avo
