    Possibly stretched the definition of import there, but included him on the basis that when he moved back to NZ his career was pretty much played out in and for Australia. Will Somerville could come under this category too?

    Nah NSW wanted to keep Somerville, he had a really good season. He moved back to NZ for a sniff at an international opportunity but it was a pretty different situation to Ronchi who had already played for Australia and really did have a dead career as he was going to be delisted by his state.

    JFC ... they’ve updated the Ross Taylor profile on cricinfo.

    I feel like a part of me has just died.

    Does it now read "The Boss was exactly what New Zealand needed in the wake of mass departures from the batting line-up"

    It does actually haha. “In the mid-2000s, he was just what New Zealand need ...”

    They could have at least changed it to “needed”.

    The entire article looks like it was written by a 12 year old with dyslexia.

    "Back in Test cricket, a career-best 290 came against Australia at the WACA in late 2015 and in 2019 added a third double century to his tally with 200 against Bangladesh."

    "Although the body started to cause some issues, he remain key to the one-day side as they began the next four-year cycle when Williamson took over the captaincy from McCullum."

    "One of his finest innings came against England, in Dunedin, in 2018 when he was batting on one leg due to injury and scored an unbeaten 181 to a big chase."

    Maybe they’ll fix it up in 2032.

    as usual crapinfo need me to do everything for them. it's obvious they were reading the wc thread where i mentioned it as well.

    look crapinfo, i understand, it's hard to describe the boss. give me the keys to all of your player profiles and i will grace you with my expertise.

    He used to have the legit best profile photo with his massive cheesy grin, I loved it.

    I don't want to sound too much like Howsie, but did Tom Blundell win the lottery or what? Did very little to demand selection, didn't play a single game at the world cup (though admittedly he did well in the warm-ups), and walked away from it all with a life-changing sum of money in his pocket. Given he's a player who may not going to get a lot of opportunities in his career, I say good on him.
