    I would imagine based on the NZC contracts, you'd have a top five of Vettori, Bond, Fleming, Oram and Styris meaning Vincent wouldn't be earning a lot - probably only $50,000 - $70,000.

    I'd say he'd earn far more being on a top contract with South Australia.

    For me, he's been awfully treated by New Zealand Cricket and I wouldn't blame him at all if he turned his back on NZC.

    When was that? Badly treated by Bracewell maybe, but NZC?? Surely every player wants to play in front of their fans, and Vincent has a lot of fans over here.

    I think the minimum NZC contract is $70-80k plus merchandising tie-ins etc.

    South Australia is still only state cricket.... though I have NO idea how much they earn there, state players in NZ only earn about $30-40k according to Sinclair who claimed he was having to work at the port in Napier during the off-season just to survive

    I don't think he has been treated "awfully". He probably should have been originally selected for the VB Series but he hasn't done himself that many favours in recent times with his shot selection

    Ironically, he's still the highest averaging test opener since Richardson (IIRC).

    Since his recall in both formats he has made the most of his ability, as the stats plainly show.

    I was referring to his selection, well non-selection really while we've seen the selectors try out the likes of the Marshall twins, How, Cumming, Papps - the list goes on.

    The minimum NZC contract is $45,000 + match fees.

    It is rather ironic, but he was never meant to be a Test opener, as much as Bracewell thought otherwise.

    He has done well since his recall during the CB series, although his only century came against minnows and he was playing most of his games on roads.

    Cummings latest efforts at opening impressed me, unlike the last time I saw him bat. Given that series was pretty much dominated by ball I'd like to see him slot in at #1 in our next test...

    He'll be getting on a bit in age now, and given that he doesn't play ODI's for the Black Caps it would be difficult to get him to stay around just for less than 5 Test's a year sort of thing.

    Whoops, I screwed up that filter.

    Stats since he's been recalled in ODI's.

    Was missing that average inflating 172 but also a couple of 50's from the terrible SA series.
