McMillan and Morrison, it's hard to pick who the bigger embarrassment is.
Yikes, Bracewell is really bowling pies.
1) Ross is Boss.
2) See point 1.
Leading the charge against nuances being used in posts.
Overrated XI M Bracewell, Burns, Rahane, Don Voges, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaul
Sri Lanka doing a NZ. 123 for 5, that classic score.

Keep bouncing him. Hasn't left one yet, lets see if he's a compulsive hooker.
Jeets isn't bowling badly, but they look pretty comfortable. So glad we didn't play Astle.
As I type Mathews smokes him. WAC.
I reckon Jaya is due his 1 innings in 100 where he doesn't completely grind our hopes into the dust. C'mon, throw it all away. The lunch table awaits.
Phuck - Bracewell.
Mathews could be such a good batsman. Has a few rough edges but otherwise could bat much higher than six. Looks really comfortable against pace bowling in his own half and is more a proper batsman than the archetypical allrounder. Has total guns above him though.
His bowling average is a bit jammy.
Bracewell is over pitching it.
Get Williamson to chuck a few down for the hell of it.
Bracewell has let down NZ imo, Nice counter attack from the lankans though
Bracewell's a strange case. I'm not sure he's quite up to Test standard day-in, day-out; but when he gets himself into a groove he can look world class. When he doesn't fire, he seems to be pretty toothless against decent batsmen.
He's only 22 though, so I have no doubt he will develop into a great NZ bowler, but right now he must be causing some headaches for selectors.
I'd probably put Southee in the same boat. NZ have a gun attack for the future in Bracewell, Southee and Boult. Hopefully they develop into consistent bowlers soon enough.
