    Its fantastic news for NZ considering the recent retirements, injuries etc.

    Wilson has the ability to read a situation like a book and is outstanding at all areas of cricket (batting, bowling, fielding)

    I think the wait now is to see whether he'll make the World Cup, there is no doubt that he will if he has a big summer for Otago.

    Great news for New Zealand cricket - he's a real talent in whatever sport he plays whether it being rugby, cricket or basketball.

    Hopefully he makes a great return.

    His stats when he last played cricket can be viewed at CricInfo here - http://www-uk10.cricket.org/link_to_...N_JW_05002128/

    Its great PR for NZ cricket, I imagine that if Wilson gets picked for NZ next year, that the crowds will pack the grounds just to see him play.

    I just read in the NZ Herald that Wilson said he always wanted to play cricket more than rugby which was interesting.

    hmm he will have the power to blast some

    after all the hard intensive rugby training the cricket ones should be easy as for him

    the training he will have to do for cricket will be quite different though... he will probably have to do a bit of LSD...

    LSD?

    It's very interesting, not many people are top-level internationals in two sports (Thinks... 1906... CB Fry... that's all I can remember, plus someone who played for Nuneaton Borough at Football and Gibraltar at Cricket, but that's hardly top level!)
