    Luke Ronchi to NZ



    WA has confirmed wicketkeeper Luke Ronchi will quit the Warriors and will head to New Zealand in an attempt to resurrect his international career.

    Rumours surfaced this afternoon that Ronchi had advised his teammates of his plans at training this morning.

    A spokesperson from the Warriors confirmed to PerthNow that the 30-year-old would walk away from the team and return to New Zealand, where he was born, to further his career.

    The spokesperson refused to expand on the issue, with the Warriors expected to release an official statement this afternoon.

    Ronchi, 30, has played 58 first-class matches and 86 one-dayers for WA.

    I wonder which province he will select. He was born in Dannevirke (CD).

    Auckland - Dropkins/B. Cachopa
    ND - McGlashan/Watling
    CD - van Wyk
    Wellington - Austin-Smellie
    Canterbury - Young/Latham
    Otago - McCullum/de Boorder

    Thoughts?

    If I was him I'd move to Wellington and try and get into the Wellington side.

    I can't see him playing for NZ though.

    He will play for Wellington. He's Australian.

    Wellington with Siddons perhaps? They've had plenty of Aussies up there in recent years.

    Edit: Heath too fast. No surprise there

    If he thinks it will be a stroll in the park, he should think again. In terms of potential & competition for places, NZ cricket is looking more competitive than it has for some time. He'll need to displace Watling & van Wyk for starters.

    A pecking order of:

    McCullum
    Watling
    van Wyk
    de Boorder
    McGlashan
    ....
    ....
    ....
    ....
    Ronchi
    Dropkins
    Young

    ?

    I have moved Dropkins/Young to the end of the queue. Has anybody seen Latham's keeping?

    A mate of mine swears he's as silky a moving behind the stumps as McCullum was at his best.

    Yes, but only in a 20:20 when Reece Young picked up an injury. Wasn't impressed, but he probably wasn't prepared for it.
