    Andrew Jones all the way ... a bit CD, but played for us in his glory years.

    I was a poor Dunedin uni student for that 2004 England tour (but sacrificed it all to pay for sky for our flat) and watched almost every ball of that test series ... McCullum really deserved that 100 at Lords.

    Yeah the idea was obviously to have someone with a bit of post-globalism glamour and huge name recognition for the sons of rich dentists and doctors who pay the lion's share of the bills for these centres. You two are conceding to the visitor "in the seriously global and professional era, these centres haven't produced anyone".
    Don't squander the gold of your days making a shrine of cricket videos, trying to improve the hopeless failure, giving your life away to the Blockys, the Devciches and the Weerasundaras! Surrender your devout little cricketing heart to the inured agribusinessman.

    We’ll never fix it if we don’t embrace it.

    So with England touring in November and their poor Ashes, reckon it'll be a clean 2-0 for us? England generally are good at bouncing back and can be unpredictable sometimes (Sri Lanka 3-0), but too short a turn around to work out their problems?

    I think we're due a tour there in 2022, by which time they'll have fully turned things round you'd expect.

    Aren't they going to rest a whole bunch of players (read: getting the excuses in early)?

    Apparently they've reversed that after not winning the Ashes and will pick a decent team.

    The techniques they're carrying, if they get on a green one there's going to be chaos. It's one of the worst techniqued top orders I can recall. Mind you if it's flat, there's enough firepower to make us hurt. And even if it was green, their red hot bowling attack would pick our carcass.

    If England can get Anderson, Broad and Archer on the park at the same time they'll still be a nasty prospect. There will definitely be a clean out of the ODI WC riff-raff from the test team, and I reckon that the rest that Joe Root will get over the next couple months will help him out.

    Our batting looks solid though, and the bowling is obviously in good shape. Will tentatively say 1-1 if Anderson tours and 2-0 to NZ if not.

    Yeah you're right, I'm defaulting to pessimism but I really shouldn't. The only concern really in the top 7 is Raval, who honestly I think we can lock in for an average of >10 - especially if there's some spice in the wicket. But Latham has form, Williamson and Taylor we know are world class, and we have two guys in Watling and Nicholls who we know will never be mentally beaten, plus Colin who is hitting them well recently. Jeepers, even Southee has a bit of lower order form.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if there is a majorly rain-affected draw with tests late Nov-early Dec. I’ll go 1-0 to NZ.

    Which is why Latham averaged 36 when England last toured NZ, and Raval averaged 8.

    This is blatantly not true. What could you possibly be basing it on?
