Vimes tells it how it is:
Didn't think they'd prick Nicol's balloon after inflating it very gently since October, also kind of expected them to hesitate digging up McCullum and replanting him again.
Highly unlikely Flynn will suddenly petition Grant Bradburn to put a line through
2. Yovich, but you'd figure he probably should if he's truly keen to be in the 3rd Test frame.

Gillespie > Arnel, and Southee's current form, for mine.
Would personally much rather he got a run than Nethula, who I feel is overhyped because he's a wrist spinner.
Sadly, I think Arnel will get the nod and end up with a return of 1-150 off 40-50 overs for the match, if that.
Scott Styris > You.
Also think Nicol deserves a decent chance. He showed some grit in the 2nd dig in the face of some hostile bowling and was unlucky to slam a full bunger straight down mid on's throat.
can't be bothered to find the thread so just post it in here - Ronchi is gonna play for the Wellington Firebirds and is thinking of flying over for the rest of the season, however long that is.
Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?
With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left
Southee really has had a fall from grace. I recall him over here being quite dangerous when conditions were conducive. He looked promising with the bat early doors too. Perhaps a bit of hubris and overhype.
Little bit surprised Flynn didn't get a spot over one of Ellis, Arnel and Nethula. You'd think extra batting strength would be a good idea especially with Nicol still in the team.

Must say I never thought I would see Gillespie recalled halfway through this summer.

Boult to slam Philander and reduce him to a mumbling nervous wreck.
Greatest Ever Test XI: JB Hobbs, L Hutton, DG Bradman (c), IVA Richards, BC Lara, GS Sobers, AC Gilchrist (wk), Imran Khan, RJ Hadlee, MD Marshall, SK Warne 12th man: M Muralitharan
Favorite XI: WG Grace, VT Trumper, IVA Richards, DCS Compton, FMM Worrell (c), AC Gilchrist (wk), CL Cairns, SK Warne, FS Trueman, SE Bond, T Richardson 12th man: H Larwood
After watching Philander's McGrath-esque performance I am astounded that he is apparently rubbish at limited overs. Even his List A numbers are average, and for someone with such control over line and length, and enough movement to cause serious problems, this is baffling.
