Don't be hating on Bates.
IMO ICC should mandate that if teams are only separated by 10 points or so on the test rankings then series should be 3 tests minimum.

Northern DistrictsProudly supporting KS Williamson, TG Southee, TA Boult, BJ Watling, CJ Anderson, MJ Santner and IS Sodhi, TL Seifert and ZN Gibson
Doubt Arnel will play for NZ again.
Our selectors have been a bit fickle with Sam Wells. If he was good enough to get selected as 12th man for a test you would think he would make a larger 15 man squad.
1) Ross is Boss.
2) See point 1.
Leading the charge against nuances being used in posts.
Overrated XI M Bracewell, Burns, Rahane, Don Voges, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaul
Coles Notes version: IF he takes some 5fers next year he might be back.

Flem - can you add a poll to this thread (complete with irrelevant third option) on who will win the series - genuinely interested in if CW agrees with Windie.
Not entirely sure what our ODI team would look like at the moment.
There are quite a few other players in this mould around however most are not particularly established eg.
KNB (though I struggle to call what he does to get the ball to the other end 'bowling')
Selecting Wells based purely on perceived potential just shows that the selectors are looking hard for this sort of player imo.
Matt Henry fans can take a bit of heart here I think -

The way his 'rains it pours' numbers leap off the page (8/23, 5/30, 6/44 etc) will help him as well I think.
Hope the Windies put out
Bishoo (he's still gun right?)
Pretty solid looking team. We have the better bowling but they have the batting.
