    Some very talented Indian players there, especially batsman.

    Parthiv Patel, Badrinath, Dhawan, Kohli, Tiwary, Rahane, Nayar. Very intimidating. The other squads look like trash in comparison.

    Agreed, India look a strong mix. Parthiv Patel is captain is an interesting choice though. Trivedi and Mishra also were impressive at times throughout the IPL.

    As for NZ, I'm quite pleased with the side chosen. Would also give Ryder and Franklin a top opportunity to get back into semi-competitive cricket before joining the New Zealand side again.

    I'm looking for Brandon Hiini to clear up here. Should be a decent New Zealand bowling attack with him and Franklin potentially bowling in tandem.

    Most of the other Kiwi bowlers are very inexperienced and will in all likelihood blow hot and cold, with the occasional decent spell being more than off set by getting carted for the rest of the match.

    Expect a host of single figure scores and one century from Pinger.

    Shah and Abdullah I'm not too keen on, thought they looked pretty average in the IPL and U-19 WC's whenever I've seen either of them.

    The rest of the squad can't be disagreed with really, looking very promising. Especially would like to see how Dhawal and Kohli do.

    Nice sides there. So if Franklin and Ryder join, who goes home?

    Have a feeling that Ryder and Franklin will be a great help in keeping pace with India, who always seem to have the best emerging players in terms of quantity. The international players in the NZ and India sides will be a great help for the newbies (don't notice any SA internationals on first look, Imraan Khan has a gun name though.)

    Happy with the NZ team. No Marshall rubbish.

    I want to see this team play (assuming its a one day tournament).:

    Jesse Ryder
    Martin Guptill
    Peter Ingram
    Greg Hay
    Neil Broom
    James Franklin (give him a go at 6, may be needed there when Oram retires)
    Bevan Griggs
    Brandon Hiini
    Burtt
    Arnel
    Bennet


    Pinga to dominate.

    He won't be. It'll be guys from the Cricket Academy as usual. Heal wasn't part of the intake this year. Should be enjoyable to see how our young blokes go. Moey to carve up.

    South Africa are the defending champions (two time) and a lot is expected but this squad is the weakest selected thus far. There are high hopes for Parnell (who seems to be getting fastracked) and Elgar in particular but a couple of the older guys namely the captain seem to be merely filling up the numbers. They should have had a punt with Vandiar and a couple of the other U-19 cricketers.

    Bowling attack looks fairly decent mind; South Africa are looking for a left arm seamer and this attack is likely to have three on show. Also, interested to see how Daryn Smit gets on, his in the team as a wicket keeper but he also bowls leg spin and is known for ditching the gloves halfway through the game and coming onto bowl.

    As am I. Really hope that these games have List A status. Would like to see the Indians field this team.

    Ajinkya Rahane
    Shikhar Dhiwan
    Parthiv Patel
    Manoj Tiwary
    S. Badrinath
    Pinal Shah
    Abhishek Nayar
    Iqbal Abdulla/Ravindra Jadeja
    Amit Mishra
    Pankaj Singh
    Manpreet Gony

    Not exactly sure what the batting line-up would be, as I've never heard anything about Pinal Shah and wouldn't know if he's batted that low before. You could probably swap Tiwary and Badrinath too, if the need arose.

    So long as Hay and Broom do well, I couldn't give a toss about the rest of them. We know Franklin and Ryder are quality, but the rest of the team strikes me as fairly average. Obviously there is potential for the future which is what this tour is all about, but there will be plenty of opportunity for the likes of Bennet, Anderson, Boult etc in years to come.
