    Three things we desperately require:

    1. Genuine strike bowler.
    2. Genuine wicket taking spinner (at least in spin-friendly conditions).
    3. An opening batsman with the mental fortitude and technique of at least someone like Rigor.
    1. 200%, A+
    2. B-. Happy with Craig's work. Sodhi looked good in the UAE but seems to have missed a few first class games.
    3. B. Tom Latham was fantastic in the Windies and UAE. Had a tough return at home but we were sent in on green decks.

    Yes it is, can't believe this thread was only started in 2012 either.

    This thread is definitive proof that if a group of people engage in enough wishful thinking and unreasonable optimism then through sheer power of will the arrow of time will fork into a parallel universe where all your most fantastical dreams come true.
    - Something amazing is built from the ashes left after a horribly managed mutiny against a young captain, which leaves the entire country hating all things NZ cricket;
    - NZ cricket has a 'good culture';
    - Brendon McCullum starts making big hundreds;
    - BJ Watling turns into not just a handy lower order batsman but a very good keeper too;
    - Southee and Boult turn into genuinely one of the best new ball pairs in the world;
    - Kaneh;
    - All our promising bowlers don't get injured;
    - New players brought into the side actually perform;
    - People on the street are excited about NZ cricket.

    It's the most unlikely story.

    When I started this thread:

    a) We all (save Howsie) thought that Southee was rubbish and would continue to be so for some time;
    b) Boult couldn't get a game;
    c) Kane couldn't buy a run;
    d) Wagner - who for some was the great white hope - had just bowled a pile of absolute puss;
    e) John Wright was leaving as coach and was to be replaced by a 7 year old;
    f) Chris Martin was bowling at about 120 kmh and still had a lock on 1st seamers spot;
    g) Bracewell - the shining light from our home summer - was returning to being rubbish;
    h) van Wyk was shelling chances and reducing Taylor's effectiveness at 1st slip - and his only replacement Watling obviously wasn't a proper keeper;
    i) McCullum kept throwing his wicket away at the top of the order; and
    j) Martin ****ing Guptill was probably our best batsman after Taylor.

    So yeah, things have changed a bit. I never realistically thought New Zealand would be winning test series and seriously competing at global tournaments within a couple of years. Long may it continue

    My contributions to this thread were standard Heef fare. Firstly, putting the boot into Millmow and then an off-topic reference to cult hero Luke Vivian.

    EDIT: I stand by those contributions with pride.

    I never thought Southee was rubbish. I was against him being dropped (even though it was probably good for his development) because even though he went for runs he always had the ability to produce wicket-taking deliveries, and our Test attack at the time he was dropped was horribly un-incisive.

    I saw a few good quotes when I looked back through, including a few good tastes from me (and others).
