    I think the term 'white line fever' sums Wagner up quite well.

    Can see one of the guys already in SA getting the call up since they're already there. McClenaghan, Bates etc

    I'd probably go with Mitch, especially if he has a decent T20 series. It's only a reserve spot anyway.

    So, Boult and Bracewell the locks it would seem (if Bracewell was going to be dropped due to some poor tests recently he won't be now). If Franklin plays, they may leave Wagner out rather than have 3 left arm seamers, which means Martin might play with Jeets or B.Martin the spinner.

    personally, from the squad (without knowing Southee's replacement), I'd pick:

    1. Guptill
    2. McCullum
    3. Flynn
    4. Williamson
    5. Watling+
    6. Brownlie
    7. Franklin
    8. B Martin
    9. Bracewell
    10. Boult
    11. C Martin
    12th man: Patel

    Phantom's swansong? Given he's record in South Africa, he deserves a crack.

    Which Audi convertible he drives is important. Can't have any metro quicks out there after all.

    Though if he wins the Important Moments he may be forgiven.

    I would arrange the deck chairs in this order

    Brendon McCullum
    Martin Guptill
    Kane Williamson
    Dean Brownlie
    Daniel Flynn
    (insert best allrounder from T20 )
    BJ Watling
    Doug Bracewell
    Neil Wagner
    Jeetan Patel
    Trent Boult

    Don't want either Franklin or Fulton in the XI. Bowlers named Martin are the others to miss out.

    southee is a huge blow, so it is essentially SA vs NZ 'A' now

    ffs, just when you thought southee might finally turn into a very good bowler, he got injured.

    strong possibility: amla and kallis to now score more runs in the series than the combined total of NZ

    That's some seriously devastating news about Southee. My intrestest in the test series has waned significantly as a result.

    I think Boult will be the bigger threat in this series, but losing that combination sucks.

    Martin will be the replacement bowler. He better not **** it up.

    Too much pessimism. Southee would have been good but isn't he equally likely to go missing in action every now and then? And Wagner looks very good also; let him play, you might uncover something there. He and Boult have to be the two most promising lefties around, now that Amir isn't in the frame. Get Martin to do a support gig and everything isn't so bleak. SA are prone to brain farts at home..SL beat them last year.

    Sorry, you've got Bracewell, so Martin can push on to the old folks home. And Starc is another left armer.
