In all seriousness I expect the NZ bowling attacks to do quite well. Their batsmen are going to get ripped to shreds however
Batsman I tolerate: V. Richards, S. Tendulkar, E. Morgan, N. Hussain. KEVIN O F******* BRIEN
NZ are going to get a smack I'm afraid.
They might win a T20 or ODI or two, but they are going to get hammered.
There are also three SA-born players in the various squads, Watling, Wagner, and Munro.
Hopefully NZ pick Wagner. Ex-saffies always seem to do amazing against their home country
SA assistant coach, Russell Domingo, to look after the T20 stuff vs NZL & PAK. Going down a similar route as the English.

Christ, that didn't take Anderson long at all did it. Two months of cricket where he's fully healthy and he's playing international cricket. Big call but I wouldn't be shocked to see him playing test cricket within six months if he stays fit.
Northern DistrictsProudly supporting KS Williamson, TG Southee, TA Boult, DG Brownlie, BJ Watling, CJ Anderson, MJ Santner and IS Sodhi
And Anderson has to be one of the most unexpected and undeserved selections I can remember. Bowled a total of 3 overs in domestic T20, averages 16 or something with the bat. Reward for staying fit for a few days in a row. I'd be surprised if he played Test cricket in the next 3 years - he's nowhere near it.

Yeah. Not impressed at all with the Anderson selection.
Neesham and Munro having good Plunket Shield seasons, and both had good LO performances last season.
Eliis out injured, Oram going through the motions. I understand them picking young allrounders to fill those gaps.
But I can only assume Anderson is in for the unavailable Taylor, as a wild last minute undeserved hail mary selection.
I wouldn't mind if another ex saffa, Grant Elliot was recalled for the ODI series - he showed some form in the T20 game last night for Wellington. Another who might do well on those pitches. I still remember his brilliant century at the MCG against Australia.

Chris Martin to break his all time high score in the first test with 13 not out.
Rest of the order to collapse for about 150. The test series is going to be tough.
Boult to Mathews, OUT, Caught at second slip! It was a length ball going across Angelo, who tried to hit it hard towards the leg side and got an outside edge that flew fast towards Guptill, who took a reflex catch in front of his face
