    ***Official*** New Zealand in Bangladesh

    First time I've started a tour thread! Don't think there's one already...

    7 October - Tour Game - TBC
    9 October - 1st ODI - Mirpur
    11 October - 2nd ODI - Mirpur
    14 October - 3rd ODI - Chittagong
    17-21 October - 1st Test - Chittagong
    25-29 October - 2nd Test - Mirpur

    NZ Squads

    Test: Jamie How, Aaron Redmond, Ross Taylor, Daniel Flynn, Jesse Ryder, Jacob Oram, Brendon McCullum (wk), Gareth Hopkins (wk), Grant Elliott, Daniel Vettori (capt), Kyle Mills, Tim Southee, Iain O'Brien, Jeetan Patel, Chris Martin.

    ODI: Jamie How, Brendon McCullum (wk), Scott Styris, Ross Taylor, Daniel Flynn, Jesse Ryder, Jacob Oram, Gareth Hopkins (wk), Grant Elliott, Daniel Vettori (capt), Kyle Mills, Tim Southee, Mark Gillespie, Jeetan Patel, Chris Martin.

    The biggest talking point in these squads is probably Jesse Ryder in the Test squad. Interesting. Also it's goodbye to James Marshall and poor Peter Fulton.

    Fulton's omission is a mystery - must be a personality thing

    Not really, he was hopelessly out of form last season, and you can't really pick him on the back of one 100 in a warm up match against Queensland. He's better served on the A tour, where he'll get much more competitive cricket anyway, and where the selectors can get a better idea of where he's at.

    No Franklin either, obviously still not fit yet.

    Typical selections those ones, interesting that they see Redmond as a Test player but not an ODI player... Personally I wouldn't see him as either

    Looks like they're keeping the faith with Redmond, something I'm actually pleased about. Not happy to see Hopkins there in both squads, though. I suspect Patel and Vettori will both play, since the tracks should be turners.

    Hope Flynn gets some runs as well, like the look of him. Still dumbfounded by Gillespie being in the ODI squad and not the test squad, considering he's better at the latter than the former.

    Yeah it is good to see Redmond given a chance. 3 Tests is not enough to prove whether a player is good enough to succeed at this level, and it's good to see the selectors finally acknowledge that.

    He'll probably be in trouble if he doesn't get runs against Bangladesh though.

    Agreed, although for some on these forums, 3 or 4 tests is enough to prove some players incapable of performing on the subcontinent

    Sometimes 3 or 4 Tests is too much and they shouldn't have been there in the first place ha

    No clear answer i guess and I suppose Redmond still could prove me wrong and score runs for NZ. Would have went with Cumming or McIntosh for the England tour. Easy for me to say that now though, they did really have to show faith in their selections for the England tour and pick him again

    Because a) he has no form, thank you selectors for killing him by playing him at no.6 in ODIs

    b) He told the selectors to stop shuffling him around the batting line up.

    Bangladesh is the perfect chance for Fulton to find some form surely, because as we have Australia next up if we want him we need to pick him now. He's better than Hopkins, Flynn, and Elliott in tests and ODIs.

    Fairly solid teams though. I commend the selectors for persistence with Redmond and dumping James Marshall.

    I think if they reckon Redmond is good enough for Tests then they should have him in the ODI squad, it's not like he's a slow scorer or anything he's even more suited to one-dayers imo

    We don't need him in the one day squad, though. And he's definitely more of a test player, for mine.
