    I think we've well and truly established that the 'pie thing' is a furphy and they just pick whoever they want, just like always.

    No offense Rob but if you could be injured after this game (you're more than welcome to take 7fer first) that would be really cool because then I could campaign for Kruger or Skippy. Kthnx.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    SA have played some lazy shots during this chase but they'll still beat a very disappointing kiwi outfit.

    Bowling has been ok - just crappy/**** batting.

    NAme a legitimate candidate other than nicol that is not from CD/does not have technique issues/has not been on the merry go round before/averages 40 in FC cricket over 3 or more seasons/has not been shown up in a ODI or looked inept against international bowling

    I don't mean to say you can't name anyone - I would just like to hear some names.

    Find Nicol's name on this list.

    Banning me from picking CD players isn't fair. Well statistically based purely on form the numbers say Brodie. Never seen him though, so I dunno. Has a few fans on the forums, but then so does Franklin.

    edit: gonna go for the guy with 256 @ 51.20. Guess who?

    edit 2: haven't used enough smileys

    Good post. He didn't have a great season, Brodie, last season, so maybe his next step is an A team tour.

    Enjoyed the Munro reference!

    Good news for the kiwi test prospects - Chris Martin is in top batting form. (Made 6 n.o for Auckland in his latest innings...)

    South Africa might actually gain the no. 1 Test spot after all. Here's hoping that they **** it up though.

    Never in a million years would I have thought Brumby to admit this!!!!!!
