Don't care that it's a long tail.
Brownlie doesn't need a game though Taylor does. N McCullum does not need to be included for reasons known to all reasonable test cricket followers.
You said Andrew Alderson was the best cricket writer in the country tbf.
grumble grumble grumble, knew I'd regret that and sure enough five minutes later...
Who else is better though? Dylan Cleaver doesn't seem to write as much any more. I like that stuff.co.nz has a lot of articles about domestic cricket however their opinion pieces don't tend to be as good.
SteveNZ has forgotten who his mates are, at CricketWeb, to become the best cricket writer in the country probs.
Paul Strang moving on from Auckland at the end of the season. Seems to have enjoyed a very successful tenure in T20 and 50 overs competitions. I suppose Matt Horne will be the favourite to take over.

Also FFS guys we can't have 2 7s. McCullum moving to 5 means that with Taylor and Williamson at 3 and 4 that we'll have to get rid of one of Brownlie or Watling. Why can't people do the math?
Sure none of us wants a Nicol or some **** opening when Watling or Baz could make a better go of it anyday of the week but that isn't what will happen. They are all playing for the same lower middle order positions and one of Brownlie, Watling or Ronchi will have to miss out.
Hey hey, let's be clear that wasn't my team. I wouldn't select NcCullum or Wagner in a 20-strong squad.
Gimme that 20 strong squad.
Ryder and Vettori aren't to be included.
Everyone knows Ronchi will miss out unless Hesson does a massive backflip. Which, given that Hesson's word has as much worth as a concrete parachute, would not be out of the question, except that McCullum would be disadvantaged in this case so it won't. Wouldn't put it past them to go back on the 'Watling will bat in the middle order' statement though. Will probably claim that they never said it, or that it was interpreted incorrectly, or that Ross Taylor had a gun at Hesson's back when he said that.
... sorry... post started normally but then went off into ranty territory.
