    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Right flounce aside

    Here is where each blackcap kiwi born was born.

    Corey Anderson - CHCH
    Astle - Palmy
    Boult - Rotorua
    Bracewell - Tauranga
    Ellis - CHCH
    Flynn - unknown
    Franklin - Wellington
    Fulton - CHCH
    Guptil - Auckland
    Hira - Auckland
    Latham - CHCH
    McClenaghan - Hastings
    Baz - Dunedin
    Nathan- Dunedin
    Marto - CHCH
    Mills - Auckland
    Milne - Palmy
    Neesham - Auckland
    Nicol - Auckland
    Oram - Palmy
    Jeetan - Wellington
    Southee - Whangarei
    Ross - Wellington
    Daniel Luca - Auckland (grew up in Hamilton)
    Kane - Tauranga

    No Hamiltonians. Shocking. Someone made a post here that cricket was dieing out in Auckland and was only strong now in CHCH, Hamilton, and Palmy. I am surprised by the large number of Palmerston north boys in this list tbh.

    Anyway there are some Aucklanders there which is a good thing - Although the strong CHCH and Palmy contingent show that cricket may indeed be stronger there than other cities.

    Very unscientific I know.

    Where did Ross grow up?

    Palmerston North Boys is one of the best sports schools in the country so it's no surprise really.

    Auckland's exported a lot of players elsewhere. CD have three in their first eleven.

    Andrew Alderson surely NZ's best cricket journalist at present. Obviously cares about the game and follows it closely and that comes through in his writing - contrast to Richard Boock who seems to just want attention and to feel special.

    Seemed to ignore that NZ is ranked below Bangers in the ODI rankings. Could've been a pretty scathing remark edged that way.

    Call me crazy, but I'm still holding out some hope that sanity will prevail and Taylor will once again be offered the test captaincy and accept it. I'm aware that horse is likely bolted, but I genuinely think NZ would be better off with McCullum taking the short forms and Taylor the longer form. What about a separate short-form and long-form coach as well?

    Don't mind the split captaincy idea but I think Taylor is only thinking about getting back onto the park again, tbh.

    Should be one coach for all formats.
    Greatest Ever Test XI: JB Hobbs, L Hutton, DG Bradman (c), IVA Richards, BC Lara, GS Sobers, AC Gilchrist (wk), Imran Khan, RJ Hadlee, MD Marshall, SK Warne 12th man: M Muralitharan

    I think the split captaincy could work and Taylor might accept it if Hesson wasn't the coach. Don't see any way Taylor could be captain under Hesson though.

    I agree it wouldn't be a bad idea, but it won't happen now. If Taylor wanted the test captaincy then he should've humbled his pride when Hesson and the NZC offered it to him.

    Couldn't have accepted it with Hesson remaining as coach - would be unworkable

    Well then you'll be waiting for a while. This series win will have bought Hesson some serious time as coach. Even if NZ do terribly from now on (less likely given the return of several critical players) I can't see his place coming under pressure any sooner than the Champion's Trophy.

    He managed to get through the test against Sri Lanka alright, and that was arguably an even worse position for him to be in.

    Disagree, I think everybody, including those pranksters from NZC understood the context in which Taylor declined it. Whether he would accept it or not is another matter, but they NZC should at least try to pursue it since things have cooled down.
