Derek De Boorder's been a little unlucky to always be a nearly-man for NZ so far in his career. Will surely get a chance at some point, though I'm not sure in which format - tests looking very unlikely now that Watling and probably Ronchi have leap-frogged him... and it will be tough to get a limited overs gig too with McCullum keeping and Watling and Ronchi (probably) around the team too.
Ronchi's FC batting this year was awesome. He's been injured around the Ford Trophy time. Plus welly top order been scoring all the runs anyway.
On his keeping: I didn't notice him standing up to the stumps. Tugaga 125km out swingers would benefit from someone standing up.
Not saying he doesn't stand up. I don't go out of my way to look at the keeping, I just keep seeing de Boorder standing up when looking at batting or bowling video of other players.
That was were career best List A return for Gillespie. 6-38, previous was 5-35
Beard's elbow impressively managing to steal the spotlight in that vid tbh.

I always used to think I'd be told to can it with the posting if I actually was an international cricketer, but what these blokes post on twitter makes me think I'd be sweet.

Slightly surprising, he'd had good success with ND. But probably a good career move, hopefully spend a couple of years overseas before coming back and taking over the Black Caps.
