    Should we say the same about this Wellington's attack?

    Though I haven't seen Woakes bowl yet and I see he has a good record.

    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.

    I'd take Munro over Ellis.

    Wouldn't mind him in the ODI team.

    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.

    Our lack of genuine ODI allrounder options is something that doesn't seem to get a lot of airtime but is a major problem when it comes to the make up of our batting lineup. We used to be swelling with medium-pace options; Harris, Cairns, Oram etc but we've gone through a pretty lean patch in recent years.

    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.

    Jimmy Neesham is getting there in my opinion.

    Maybe Corey Anderson now he's bowling again? A few years ago he looked to be a certainty for higher honours as a hard hitting all rounder.

    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.
