    As opposed to other guys who rely on only a few shots, but play them really well.
    So which type of player do you want to be out of those two choices?

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

    Ruthless England must call time on Ian Bell and allow Joe Root to stake his claim for Ashes place - Telegraph

    Joe Root is apparently the new Len Hutton without a doubt and Ian Bell should immediately be dropped despite England already having new players filling 2 slots in the batting order (Compton and Root/Bairstow). Discuss

    One more player may be added to the team closer to the match in Queenstown.

    New Zealand Cricket - New Zealand XI features the next generation of BLACKCAPS

    With the exception of a couple of experienced players, the squad reflects the next generation of BLACKCAPS says General Manager National Selection Kim Littlejohn.

    “This game gives us a great opportunity to see how these youngsters cope with playing a Test side ranked at two in the world.”

    Northern Knights leg spinner Ish Sodhi is one of those stars of the future. The 20-year-old was one of the top bowlers at last year’s under-19 World Cup and he has been in great form during this season’s Plunket Shield four-day competition.

    “This game will give Ish an opportunity to gain some valuable experience and see what's needed for his game to go to the next level,” says Littlejohn.

    Probably should only go with 1 of Anderson or Neesham and have another proper seam bowler, and pick another actual opener, but otherwise that's not too bad.

    It's good that they're keeping Gillespie in mind.

    Hmmm I would have given Fulton a go before Cachopa. Maybe Fulton is a certain for the tests?

    Rutherford
    Latham
    Cachopa
    Broom
    Brownlie
    Anderson
    Ronchi
    Neesham
    Wagner
    Sodhi
    Gillspie

    not to bad though, should be interesting to see how they go.

    Anderson and Howsie won't stand for him batting underneath Otago's 'attack watchman' with a 23 FC average, no matter how pretty some of Neesham's strokeplay looks.

    Yeah, fair enough.

    Deliberate ploy to not play a swing bowler or a genuine 3rd seamer so that England's batsmen are unprepared?

    Erm...I mean he hasn't been terrible or anything, but a bowling average in the mid 40's is hardly "great form" even for a young developing spinner.

    Not bad. Does this mean Fulton and Flynn are nailed on openers? What if Guptill does get fit in time?

    I would add Butler for one of Neesham/Anderson.

    And while exposure for Sodhi is great, I think our immediate spin concerns should trump this. Whoever starts the series as spinner probably won't finish it, it would be useful to know if the second choice was worth a punt. (Assuming we pick a spinner)

    jeets will stay on as test spinner, but I imagine he won't get a game as we should be picking 4 seamers.

    The warmup will decide whether that 4th seamer is Gillepie or Wagner.

    I agree that it would've been nice to give Butler a go over either Anderson or Neesham. But if either of this pair do well, they're a good chance to be picked over Franklin.

    No 20 y.o. leggie from NZ has ever had a wickets montage get a run on the Cricket Show, is what he meant to say.
