    Yep. Basically the T20 squad.
    Good old fashioned shafting on the cards.

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

    Ditch Nicol, bat Watling as an opener and Williamson at 3. Otherwise I reckon that's about right.

    1. Martin Guptill
    2. BJ Watling+
    3. Brendon McCullum (c)
    4. Kane Williamson
    5. James Franklin

    7. Corey Anderson
    8. Nathan McCullum
    9. Kyle Mills
    10. Trent Boult
    11. Adam Milne/McClengahan

    Maybe throw Munro into the middle-order somewhere. I guess McClengahan has to play as well. Milne will probably miss out. It's a shame too, he looked good in his last ODI.

    Fair enough. I'd say he's capable of 142-145 or so but you won't see him operate at that consistently and nor should he. Even Bond operated at 140 or even lower at the tail end, with occasional bursts, to get the best out of himself. And as we saw at PE, Mitch swings it when he's in the 130s and it's still from a good height. He's got facets to his game and that's exciting

    Milne got scratched due to injury did he not?
    EDIT: Apparently not.

    Had some pain in his achilles ahead of the t20 series. Wasn't too serious, but it was decided that it was best not to risk a serious injury and to give him a few weeks break. Played for CD against Wellington on boxing day. Ryder took him apart (I think 53 off 3 overs).

    Well apart from Bruce Martin, it looks like this is the team that's going to play the test.
