I'd agree to an avatar bet for the entirety of the England series that Ryder won't be playing. Any takers?
Yeh I'll get on that.
The loser will wear the winner's choosen avatar from the day of the first T20, until the conclusion of the 3rd test (Feb 9 until around the 25th of March). Hopefully we get a nice clear statement from Ryder or NZ Cricket saying that he's either playing or he's not, shortly after the Jan 29 meeting. However, in the unlikely event that Ryder is still making his mind up during the T20's and ODI's about whether or not to play:
Howsie wears the avatar I choose for him until Ryder publicly commits to play, after which I wear his avatar.
Even have him coming in at 7. He would be perfect to demoralise the fielding side, scoring quickly with proper cricket shots. Ensure we get 300+ totals for Southee, Bracewell & Boult to work with. They have shown they can get the wickets, they just need the runs. Williamson & Vettori/B. Martin can provide the spin.

Sorry, I just don't understand the calls for Ronchi to make the team as a specialist batsman.
I mean, Southee has scored a domestic century this season.
I don't think too many people are arguing for him to be in the side as a specialist bat. I agree that he hasn't accomplished a whole lot, and has stats from his last couple of seasons in Sheffield Shield aren't great. But as a keeper batsman, since coming to NZ he's averaged nearly 80, and is meant to be a top quality keeper to boot, so he's definitely a contender.

I notice Doull has put the call out for Hamish Rutherford and Jeet Raval. Not sure where he's plucked Raval from, Hawke's Bay coach Lincoln Doull perhaps. "Take Carl Cachopa, he deserves a chance, give him four or five tests, no pressure" - Sinclair in his new radio segment.

Hesson says some things on the 29th that Ryder finds a bit strange, a la Ross?
