    What game was it? I'm trying to remember when he has played after Zimbabwe. West Indies?

    In the Plunket Shield highlights he loves cover. It's a very prolific area for him.

    Yeah Nethula, KvW, Nicol, Flynn, Cartin, some pretty easy cuts here. I can't easily identify the guy you've got who will be shafted for Ellis tbf, Latham or Ronchi I guess.

    Black Caps saga: Taylor for tests | Stuff.co.nz


    What the dumb NZ fans think:


    "Under Brendon McCullum we seem to have become weak and brittle. First we were rolled by South Africa on four occasions, including once for under 50. Now the same thing has happened in England."


    So, the England series in New Zealand never happened, then?
    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


    Favorite XI: WG Grace, VT Trumper, IVA Richards, DCS Compton, FMM Worrell (c), AC Gilchrist (wk), CL Cairns, SK Warne, FS Trueman, SE Bond, T Richardson 12th man: H Larwood

    I'm confused. Last time I peeked at the mainstream opinions they were loving McCullum's captaincy.

    I think they put it to the readers to submit their ideas. Always a great idea, like when they asked the viewers who the MOTM at Hobart was.

    There are three names touch & go here, Latham, B Martin & Ronchi,
    I reckon one of their contacts will go to Corey Anderson, as the will be looking towards 2015 world cup

    Anderson for Ronchi and that's the list, IMO.

    Unless they replace Franko, in which case Anderson & Ronchi to get deals.

    I've said this in the other thread, but there is no ****ing need for 4 wicketkeepers.

    Pick 1 or 2 and have the others told to work exclusively on their batting.

    Carlchopa's probably going to make the A squad in the next week tbf. If anyone is justified in contacting the channel demanding it calls off the dogs for livelihood reasons, it's him.

    Anderson will clearly be one of the "new faces" they're talking about. I wonder if Milne might surprisingly come back in from the cold, there's bound to be some concern there his farcical injury run stems in part from semi-pro surroundings. The new CD coach is clearly a big fitness fanatic though.

    Bartin's probably one of those 'amateur in spirit, not ideal for a school visit' types like Gillespie who typically don't get contracts.

    Millmow: Contentious calls on NZ cricket list | Stuff.co.nz

    The players have been told their fate and if the whispers are correct Tom Latham, Corey Anderson, Colin Munro, Grant Elliott and Martin got the contentious 16-20 slots.

    On the outer appear to be Andrew Ellis, the Wellington trio of Luke Ronchi, Mark Gillespie and James Franklin and the perennially unlucky Ian Butler.

    The fact that Elliott was the only Firebird to make the cut has massive implications for Cricket Wellington. It now has to squeeze Franklin and Ronchi into its contract list pushing the likes of Gillespie, Michael Papps and Jesse Ryder further down the pecking order and some young ones off the bottom.

    It also makes solid first class players like Luke Woodcock and Stephen Murdoch susceptible to higher offers from rival provinces. Elliott should walk to the Kelburn Lotto shop this morning.

    He is fortuitous. He is 34, got injured at the Champions Trophy and in the past 12 months played two T20s for 19 runs at 9.50 and seven ODIs for 199 runs at 28.42.

    Here is the anomaly. Had Elliott been overlooked for a national contract he would've sat behind James Franklin, Luke Ronchi, Mark Gillespie at the Firebirds.

    What's the answer? Fifteen contracts.

    That way you find room for test regulars Doug Bracewell, Neil Wagner, Doug Brownlie and Peter Fulton but not the subjective selections that landed contracts for the 16-20 lads.

    If you look back to last year punts were taken on Daniel Flynn, Kruger van Wyk, Rob Nicol and Tarun Nethula and those selections proved astray. So, 20 names will be read out Monday, from McCullum down they will be on a sliding scale of $6000 increments.

    Numbers 18-20 all get $73,000. On top of that are match fees, $7508 per test, $3250 for each ODI and $2120 per T20 appearance.

    Vettori was not asked to stand aside, he did so. He's given sterling service but has had a good run in terms of earning while he is injured and there is no guarantee he will return after Achilles surgery.

    Ryder's manager Aaron Klee reported positively on his charge but said they never asked to be considered.

    Asked if they had their fingers crossed for a retainer, Klee said ''no, not at all''.

    ''We never looked at that, we'll just concentrate on getting a domestic contract.''
