He's not going to get a call up any time soon and I realise this pitch is probably a road, but how do other peeps feel about Munro and how likely he would be to succeed in tests and ODIs?

I don't need to say how I feel. Although he's much more an ODI option, at least at this stage.
200! From just 216 balls.
Haha, no switching off after reaching the milestone - the next two balls went for six.
I have confidence in the selection panel now that Crowe and truner are involved, instead of a lawn bowler with pie charts. I would expect Crowe would be watching Munro bat and would be interested to hear his comments on him. 229 off 226 balls, against a solid bowling attack which includes an English and NZ international opening bowler.
Partnership 31 from 25. Mills has 1 off 10.
EDIT: Oh, and he's gone now for 1 off 11. His batting's really gone downhill.

Eleven sixes now, might be eyeing up the record for a FCC innings
The fact that Ellis got anywhere near the blackcaps highlights this. Tama Canning, Colin De gramhoweveryouspellit etc can add to that list.
I'd take Munro over Ellis any day of the week, but he's still a weak option and there certainly doesnt seem to be many other options rising through the ranks.
As mentioned above - Jimmy Neesham.
Carl Cachopa? He showed some power hitting ability in the T20 on Friday, to go with his sequence of trophy hundreds, and seems to get a few wickets in the trophy matches. Not sure about his bowling stats in shorter form though.
I would have thought de Grandhomme would be next in line after Ellis and Franklin.

247* from 242 with 12 sixes - that is quite some innings no matter who the bowling attack is or on what ground.
