    Sinclair is over-rated

    I've read some people here say he has been "unlucky" to not be selected more often or even the rediculous comment that he is the 2nd best batsman in the country??
    First of all he had a great start to his career, he got three very good totals, I won't begrudge him that and his innings of 150 vs sa in sa wasvery good. But since then whenever he has had an opportunity he has never looked like a classy test batsman. Even in the 70 odd he got in Australia in 04/05 he didn't look good and it was obvious he would not be able to score runs like that regularly. I think he is just a very good first class player that can;'t hack it at test level.
    How can people not notice? Not only is he average vs quality pace bowling but he also is an average player of spin. To add to all that he looks very nervous every time he bats- all this talk about we need his experience in England is rubbish - he does not seem like a calm, pressure handling player anyway.
    You know who we could do with in England? Scott styris.
    Scott styris's test career>>>>> Sinclair's test career.

    TBH I thought it was a shame your kiwipostereborn account was banned, but it's always amusing to see duplicate accounts which are almost exact copies of each other. No-one's yet done one as original as a directly reversed one though from what I've seen. Even our most famous duplicate-accounter hasn't yet come-up with enraW enahS or cirtcelEeeLgniB.

    Either way - I agree that it's a shame for NZ that Sinclair rather than Styris is currently in the Test team, but I've thought for a fair while now that Peter Fulton could be better than either.

    a difference of 1.96 runs re their avg... really the difference of 2 runs is a little extreme..

    Taylors just getting started, Styris could bowl and Sinclairs finishing and the other two can play ODI's.

    It's really quite funny to see the number of Kiwis and Pakistanis their fans want the ICL to take.

    Probably not the wisest thread to create at all, either. Given how biased and corrupt I am, and how much I love Sinclair.

    Bell's not that bad, and Sinclair is good when on form (which never ****ing happens TBH.)
