    Can't see the benefits myself, he isn't good enough to make it as a succesful batsman in Australia IMO. The only reason he would be moving is to improve his skills for a couple of years and then come back as a better player, much like Jacques Rudolph is doing with Yorkshire.

    I tend to think he will go.

    He's never been valued by New Zealand Cricket, and he has a young family now. He probably wants the chance to cash in on his talent and earn some real dollars for himself and his family and get the respect he deserves.

    I may be being naive but would South Australia pay him more than what he's getting now in NZ? If so, that surprises me

    His talent that remains unfufilled? He doesn't deserve any respect until he can perform consistently at the highest level, which he has very rarely done. I agree that he was given a hard time of it in Test match cricket, but given the lack of Test's we play then it hasn't been too much of an issue.

    It depends if he's on a central contract with NZC or not. If you aren't on an NZC contract, you earn a pittance.

    Personally, I think he's doing a 'Skippy' Sinclair to ensure he gets an NZC contract this year - they are up for renewal soon.

    Possible scare tactics like Sinclair? Though I agree with what James said.

    Vincent has a career similar to Katich - dropped after a good score and made to play in a position he's not used to.

    I'm still convinced Vincent is one of the top 5 batsmen in NZ and should be a first choice for both sides.
    However, if NZC don't see that then I don't blame him for going somewhere where he would be valued.

    It's a pity he couldn't play county cricket this season.

    He's definitely on a central contract...and yes I agree with your 2nd sentence.

    I like Vincent - he's the sort of personality that doesn's suit Bracewell. I won't forget that time he fielded in the deep and ended up with his trousers round his ankles. I hope he doesn't call it a day for NZ, it'll be the end of his international career I'd expect. I'd rather lose Sinclair than Vincent.
