    You have to take him afaic. Said it last week but you're kidding yourself if you believe either Martin or Wagner would be a better option.

    I'd take him, definitely. Van Wyk needs replacing, so in comes Watling. If he gets injured, de Boorder should be the next guy to get a go if he's in some form. Nicol isn't as good as Brownlie in the first place so I'd add him to the squad. I doubt we'd run with a keeper/Astle 6/7 combo over in South Africa. If Ryder's not available, Brownlie's probably the best option there.

    Martin Guptill
    Brendon McCullum
    Kane Williamson
    Ross Taylor (c)
    Jesse Ryder
    Daniel Flynn
    BJ Watling+
    Doug Bracewell
    Tim Southee
    Jeetan Patel
    Trent Boult

    12.Dean Brownlie
    13.Adam Milne
    14.Neil Wagner
    15.Todd Astle/de Boorder if we're taking a second keeper

    Play Patel if the conditions suit, otherwise Milne gets a go.

    Good squad Mike, I agree fully. I think they will take Van Wyk as back up keeper though, I cant see south africa going for spinning pitches due to Tahirs performances.

    Milne 5/30, Neesham gone for a golden. Damn! But good at the same time for Milne.

    It will be interesting who keeps for ND next round. Watling or Wheater. Wheater plays as specialist bat for his county I think I read here?

    With Wright gone from nz coach, is Watling still seen as potential keeping option at test level?
    I haven't watched an ODI in ages, so how was his keeping during the winter? Did he keep?

    BTW. Good stuff Milne!

    Hah, really hope Milne doesn't pick up a hattrick. Would be too good if he was out for 97 and missed 2 hattricks on the same day.

    Indeed. James Foster usually keeps.

    4b from Milne, next over 5nb from Mathiesen. Assume the two speedsters are pretty excited atm. Poor Ben Smith, no idea how good a keeper he is, but sounds like a tough day for keeper and batsmen.

    Looking forward to seeing the video from today, excitings days cricket.

    First career 5-for for Milne. Well done.

    Great stuff from Milne. And no, I still wouldn't take him to SA. This is exactly where he should be right now, learning his craft against modest domestic batting lineups. It'll still provide a decent challenge for him, especially as the pitches dry up after the new year. And I much prefer this to him carrying the drinks in SA.

    If he does keep up this red-hot form, I'd maybe support his inclusion in the squad for next year's tour of England. That's asking quite a lot though, and I still reckon next year's series v the Windies is a more realistic target. For now, he should just keep on terrorising domestic batsmen, and helping Carl Cachopa develop his technique against the short stuff.

    Looks like CD are using him in short explosive bursts, which is smart cricket especially on what the 1st innings would suggest is a very good batting track.

    I'm not going to make any calls on the squad until we see a few more FC games and this test is done. Aren't the tests in January?

    Also depends when the HRV and Ford Trophy are on.

    I think they're in January, Phlegm. It's boss how we get five tests in total vs England before August next year.

    Irritating that we don't get 6, but given that it's an ashes year, I guess I can understand.
