Vimes tells it how it is:
Despite playing quite badly, Wellington weren't far away. 10 more runs and some better fielding and it would've gone right to the wire. Fair play to the Volts. The best team throughout the competition, and it would've been a crime if they'd missed out on a Champion's League place because of losing this. I reckon the CL spot should go to whoever tops the round robin. One-off T20 games are just too random.
A Kippax NZ XI for two T20s...
Neesham (fifth loose and lusty left-hander in the top seven, ah....Broom would go down a treat with Mike obvs. Ellis took 4/14 vs. Otago I notice.)
Henry (won't happen but anyway. Would be very harsh on Butler tbf)
Wellington would have gone okay at the CL had they won today. Ryder, Ronchi, Tamim, Franklin, Gillespie etc are all good players. Just keep the two Aussie shunts away from the team.
Will never win though.
I'm keen to see Duffy, Tugaga and Snugglejuggle in the Ford Trophy. All three look like they've got something about them in the limited overs stuff.
One of those lads to play a few ODIs next season imo.
I reckon the selectors may be tempted to give Duffy a debut in t20's this season. Southee won't be back in time for the t20's, Milne and Gillespie will probably still be injured and the consensus is that Bracewell and Mills aren't suited to the shortest form.

Sorry about my 4 balls to Borgas. I shouldn't play with my food before I eat it. #likearash

Game day. Real nervous about the possibility of the Wellington boys wanting to do bro handshakes post game #neverdoneone
@DrDeath32 Don't worry the #BoonSquad will teach you the ways

Champions League 11?
From the final team, Brett Lee, Nathan McCullum, Brendan McCullum, Neil Wagner, and Jimmy Neesham would all be available to come into the team. It would be tough to leave out some of the guys who played the final. I would go something like
That would be pretty tough on Butler, Duffy, Bracewell though, and there would be no place for Wagner.
Are there any restrictions on how many overseas players they can use?
Wouldn't touch Wagner for the entire tournament. He's a gun for Otago in whites but he's awful in the colours.
Four imports it is. McCullum at No. 4 in provincial T20. (N)
Depends what version of Lee turns up I guess. I have nfi how good he is at 20/20.
It's in India isn't it? Two spinners well worth it imo. Beard is arguably the bowler of the HRV Cup.
