    Daryl Tuffey has been shafted! One bad over and everyone turns against him. Michael Mason is a joke. Down with Martin Snedden imo

    Why has Tuffey been shafted? What form could they pick him on, nibbs?

    Or has he been sacked for shafting someone else?

    Sinclair obviously only got a contract because they wanted him to stay in New Zealand. We play so little Test cricket that was it really worth it?

    You couldn't possibly select Tuffey on the back of playing no cricket for so long IMO.

    What about Martin Crowe? NZ really need an opening batsman or two - so bring back Bruce Edgar!

    Thought the contracts were pretty much as expected. Hope Dan Vettori gets to play this season - last time he had a stress fracture he was out for over a year.

    What's the big deal about Sinclair? We know he's been found out countless times, especially as opener, and has often struggled to get a start. His declining form was highlighted in the team's woeful performances at that time and not surprisingly, he lost his place. How is he an option now? Likewise Lou Vincent.

    Simply because Sinclair is not an opener. Never has and never will be - put him in at number 3 where he belongs.

    The day New Zealand stop chopping and changing with their openers is the day SP rates Thierry Henry.

    Can you name two openers who are worth persisting with for a long stretch? It seems Vincent and How are a decent pair, but once Papps was a decent option at the top, then they brought back Sinclair, then maybe Macca, and maybe even Matt Horne back again. They've got him opening the innings countless times when their patience wore thin, and predictably, he didn't score too many. Maybe How and Papps can be picked for the task, with James Marshall as reserve.
