So your batting stacked team is starting to look a lot like mine.
Saying Southee, Boult and Bracewell are good enough to get the wickets is missing the point. They can only get the wickets if they're kept fresh and bowled in short aggressive spells. To do this you need good backup bowlers who can bowl a lot of overs.

Read the article. It makes it's point quite clearly.
Interesting article on Bond and McCullum
Cricket: Imperative to mend team bond - Cricket - NZ Herald News
Honestly this is just **** stirring. whoever this "source" is is a wanker.The relationship between captain Brendon McCullum and bowling coach Shane Bond needs further mending if New Zealand are to unite ahead of the England series, starting this week.
One source described their relationship euphemistically as "professional"; another, perhaps a touch dramatically, said it was "an almost untenable situation"
Relationships between people are not always good but after a while people forget about things like this.
Two things Bondy...you've forgotten who your mates are, in the changing room. Three years ago you were with us...and the other thing is you're just an idiot, you keep in close contact with a veritable hospital ward full of Stags, even though you were one of the most frustrating fast bowlers to watch....
Add Milne to your sig btw.
No he can say Henry and Bennett are back now if he wants. Possible those two and Southee will deny him crucial points in the next two Plunket rounds, all going well.
Never understood the love for Bennett.
A few cheap wickets in the world cup even though he was getting the line wrong half the time.
You can't coach speed Hendrix. Hulking frame Crusaders-looking guy, ex-South Africans, ex-Australians, all are very, very good additions. The chef's answer to this stew is always 'add a bit more mongrel and hard-nosed intent'.
