    Just thought I'd also mention that I watched the highlights of the '01 Perth test last night.

    For Ashley Ross to say "nothing's changed since" in regards to Vettori's bowling action makes me really question his credibility.

    ATM I'd say he'd be 2nd in line behind Papps & ahead of McIntosh......

    but who knows what could happen in the RSA series if some of the current squad members continue to play poorly......

    we definately need some competition for places throughout the batting lineup - not just in the top order....

    haven't they been saying that he's bending his back more in his delivery to help get drift or something?????

    so far as Ross is concerned I already have doubts about his credibility following the ODI series in Pakistan.......

    Papps and Fulton will go to England. Thing that will go in Papps favour is that he can keep just in case Hart gets injured.

    My squad to England:
    Richardson, Fulton, Papps, McIntosh, Astle, Styris, Fleming, McMillan, Cairns, McCullum, Hart, Vettori, Bruce Martin (a bit of a surprise), Tuffey, Oram, Bond (if fit or Michael Mason) Butler.

    Andre Adams can be on standby. McCullum would be my back up just in case. Jamie How might be on standby as well along with Nicol and Ryder.

    Richardson, Astle, Fleming, Styris, McMillan, Tuffey, Vettori, Hart, Cairns, Oram and Bond (if fit) are the only certainies to go to England.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    Jeff Wilson today scored 86 off 67 balls for Otago, any chance he could be a chnce sometime this tour.

    If Wilson keeps performing like that then Cairns will really struggle to hold his place.

    I agree about Bruce Martin..if you look at his batting & bowling this season, he's been one of the standouts in an average Northern Districts side.

    McMillan needs to becareful though...there is already a sense that he is back to the type of batting that saw him being dropped last year.

    Papps is 41* against Otago..if he notches up a good score in this match then if Cumming fails at Christchurch, there is sure to be a change.

    Wilson also opened the bowling and has figures of 6 overs for 13 runs, which also included 3 maidens...and this has come despite the fact that he's been out injured for more than a month.
    The acid is really going on a couple of players now and im sure the NZ players will be well aware of how these players are doing.

    I'd like to see Peter Fulton come in & score some runs, Canterbury chasing 292 and are 84/0 after 22 overs so some acceleration will be required at some point.

    Papps' 132 kind of has me hoping Cumming fails again tomorrow, just so we might see whether his hot form translates or his crease shuffle is exposed by the Pakistani S's. That's a terrible way to think, but still!

    Have they? I thought they're saying absolutely nothing has changed. More back bend would explain what the chicken wing arms are for though.

    "Vettori said nothing had changed with his action since he modified it. Since then he had bowled superbly to take 6-87 against Australia in Perth two years ago" - http://www.stuff.co.nz/stuff/0,2106,...a10133,00.html

    Honestly, after watching that tape I might be a bit sad just watching Vettori bowl from now on. The elegant approach, a beautiful high bowling arm being brought over by an angled torso, letting the ball drift then spin and bounce. Parore gloving the finest of snicks from Steve Waugh....boy, those were the days!

    Why did Styris only bowl 3 overs?

    Cummings fails again, I don't think he can handle the pace of Sami and Akhtar personally.

    Cumming will definately be dropped i'd say, considering Michael Papps made 132 off 138 balls yesterday he'll be too good to pass up.

    Marshall made 64 so i was far too premature in saying he was going to be like Vincent.
