Auckland have paid lip service to four-day cricket under Strangy, knowing they'll continue to look good if they win HRVs etc. A big ol' clearout in the Plunket could be the perfect scenario for 2013-14. Base side around the Munros, the Bartletts, the Kitchens, the O'Donnells, de Grandhomme, Bates, Cachopa (might see a push to get the other ones back too) with Hoppy playing the wise old head and maybe Bucko Martin still there as well. Tommy, Millsy, Tim Mc, Louey, Reece etc have been great servants but it's getting a bit stale. Get 11 guys there who want to win a title. And over time, drag the guys back who have gone further afield.
