    So, if McCullum somehow guns it at 4, what will happen when Ross returns?

    Wild and unlikely speculations aside, I'm looking forward to how Wagner and Bartin go. Hope Watling can farm a hundred before then too.

    Ross just won't return IMO.

    Apparently what is best for McCullum is best for NZ.
    1) Ross is Boss.
    2) See point 1.

    Leading the charge against nuances being used in posts.

    Both could do with a swift kick up the arse, tbh.

    So are we calling them Bartin and Cartin? It's lucky there isn't a Fred Martin playing.

    ...Jonathan Millmow posted this in the Dom the other day:

    Twenty20: New Zealand's Strongest Lineup | Stuff.co.nz

    Although the series was lost 2-1, McCullum settled well into the captaincy role, there was a togetherness about the team that hasn't been evident previously, and a couple of rookie bowlers upstaged more senior team-mates.
    Did anyone else see this evidence of "togetherness?"

    Colin Munro has apparently stayed on with the test squad because Fulton's knee has flared up. Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse

    Sounds as though the only reason Brownlie isn't playing in this game is because he's picked up a bug, so fingers crossed he's right come next week.

    Couldn't really see Fulton scoring runs anyway. Just means we're stuck with Franklin, who is just as unlikely to score runs but can compliment that with a few overs of pies.

    Hope Sinclair's wrist is okay. Could easily see a sensational PE return for him after some Cape Town carnage.

    So what's the team then:

    Guptil
    Baz
    Kane
    Brownlie
    Flynn
    Watling
    Franklin
    etc

    That team will go just as well with or without Fulton.

    If Franko doesn't perform in the 1st match Colin could debut in the second.

    Martin and Wagner taking some serious tap. Looks like it'll be Boult, Martin, Bracewell and Patel for the first test. Really hoping for a holiday season miracle that Martin is back to his accurate and somewhat effective self of a couple of seasons ago.

    Seriously, a ****ing thumb injury?! FFS Southee...

    I wasn't expecting much from him but it would've been nice for him to get one more shot at test cricket. Ah well.
