    1.Guptill
    2. Flynn
    3. Taylor
    4. McCullum
    5. Williamson
    6. Watling +
    7. Ronchi
    8. Mills
    9. Bracewell
    10.Southee
    11. Boult

    12th Man: Nathan McCullum
    How is that stacking the batting? Your team has Guptill and Flynn playing, with no Brownlie. Weak batting side, imo.

    I've just realised I left out Brownlie. This means McCullum has to open and Flynn drops out.


    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.

    Simple question:

    Is the air now clear between you and Ross?

    blahblahblahlookingforwardtoenglandseriesblahblah

    just say "yes" it would be a lie but you don't have a problem with that do you?

    Honestly this is just **** stirring. whoever this "source" is is a wanker.

    Relationships between people are not always good but after a while people forget about things like this.

    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'.
