    In McCullum, Ryder, Williamson, Taylor and Guptill, NZ have a pretty decent batting line-up IMO. The primary problem is finding a wicketkeeper who can bat 6 to let Vettori play at 7, alongside the gun bowling attack they have.

    McCullum
    Guptill
    Ryder
    Williamson
    Taylor
    de Boorder/Ronchi/Watling (wk)
    Vettori
    Bracewell
    Wagner
    Astle/Southee/Whoever
    Boult

    Franklin
    Vettori
    de Boorder
    Bracewell
    Southee
    Boult

    would be my ideal team if everyone was fit and available. Obviously no Vettori, de Boorder or Ryder for the Tests against the Lankans.

    Well obviously our bowling attack isn't perfect right now, we could always do with a genuine fast bowler or a more attacking spinner. But really our bowlers are the least of our worries. I'm quite confident we have at least 5 quicks who would be solid, if not spectacular, Test performers.

    Relative to our batting order and our keeper, our bowling attack is pretty settled (even if it's not the same guys every test - we actually have a bit of depth for once).

    Exactly - we havn't been dismissed for less then 50 in decades unlike your team in that game.

    (I would like to say never but obviously we hold the world record from our early days).

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