    McClenaghan averages like 44 in FC cricket before today. I can't believe he would even be considered. If I was to bring in a seamer it would probably be McKay/Gillespie. The other option would be Nethula for Southee.

    Well I figure South Africa will declare at some point even if we don't make any inroads.

    If you're not basing your selection of Watling on the century he scored against Zimbabwe then what're you basing it on? Is it his first class performances? I guess he dominates Van Wyk there. What's Van Wyk averaging since arriving in NZ? Like 53 or something.

    Consistency would be selecting the guy that's played well against the very same opposition of the second test not bringing back a guy with questionable credentials to start with to play against Steyn, Morkel, Philander, Kallis and Tahir.

    He's quick, therefore the public will demand him before he's had a chance to smoke domestic sides (which he's made a good start of today).

    God, if we don't get a wicket here we could be chasing 400. It's gun to see Kallis bat i guess.

    Surprised Bracewell didn't take the first new ball tbh. I know it suits Boult, but Bracewell is on fire this summer. Get him and Martin on as early as possible.

    Good.

    South Africa will have to collapse ala Auckland in 2004 if we are to have a sniff here. Can remember the 2nd new ball doing the trick when SA were 250/2 or something like that.

    Again, irrelevant. He averaged that two and three years ago, for a different province as a younger man with less experience under his belt. He'd be judged on what he's done this season. I still don't believe he'll be picked but that's not the way to look at it.

    What's happened to AB? Hiding on a king pair?
