    Teams from Australia and India look relatively strong. I can't comment on the teams from Pakistan and NZ.

    These would be the likely playing elevens for the two New Zealand teams I would say. Squad 1 is stronger in the batting while Squad 2 is stronger in the bowling. Squad 1 is loaded with attacking stroke makers so we could see some big scores, while the Squad 2 batsman are more defensive players (bar McMillan).

    Squad 1

    Jamie How
    Jesse Ryder
    Peter Fulton
    Lou Vincent
    James Marshall
    Ross Taylor
    Nathan McCullum
    Graham Aldridge
    Mark Gillespie
    Michael Mason
    Warren McSkimming


    Squad 2

    Matthew Bell
    Michael Papps
    Mathew Sinclair
    Craig McMillan
    Rob Nicol
    Gareth Hopkins
    Hamish Bennett
    Kyle Mills
    Jeetan Patel
    Richard Sherlock
    Chris Martin

    Dan Cullen and James hopes will carry the Aussie bowling attack in the OD games, Dorey should do well in the 4 dayers though. The aussie batting lineup is pretty good though, Haddin, Jaques, Cosgrove, Hopes and Hodge should all do well.

    This should be in the series section can someone bump it up there,as there are only 2 series going on.
    Hasn't pakistan named their squad,expect pakistan A to have a good fast bowling line up.They may be waiting on naming the pakistan team for england yet,before naming the A side.
    The pakistan A side gave us(australia A) a run for our money expect them to be tough.
    Dunno how the kiwi squads work which one is for the academy bash in june and which one is for the A series.
    Am happy with the aussie A side tho,good to see birt,cullen bailey and bill hilfenhaus in the squad,for reward for good aussie domestic seasons.

    Both NZ 'A' teams will play in the series, so you'll have:

    Australia A
    India A
    Pakistan A
    New Zealand A and New Zealand A 2

    I'm pleased that the likes of Sherlock, Patel, Ryder, Taylor are there.

    How good is Nathan McCullum?

    Handy off-spinner who's a good lower order batsman. Bruce Martin is probably the better spinner though.
