    1. Martin Guptill
    2. Peter Fulton
    3. Kane Wililamson
    4. Ross Taylor
    5. Brendon McCullum (c)
    6. Dean Brownlie
    7. BJ Watling+
    8. Doug Bracewell
    9. Tim Southee
    10. Bruce Martin
    11. Trent Boult

    Probably.

    "There's every chance McCullum may bat at No 5," Littlejohn said.

    "Mike has some pretty strong views about where he believes Brendon is best suited. We've had some preliminary discussions, nothing is locked and loaded but it's definitely under consideration."
    But where does it get taken into consideration that Mike is a ****wit?

    "Locked and loaded" ****ing hell

    I'd tell McCullum that if he's not opening he can get ****ed. But that won't happen.
    5-0

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    Surely they would consider Ryder's comeback as well. He may not be available for this series, but he'll be back at some point this year.

    No, before each match Hesson gets out a blank piece of paper with numbers one to eleven and asks McCullum what he'd like to do this week. And if McCullum says "oh this week I think I'll field right next to the umpire, bowl first change and bat left-handed at 8" then Hesson says "good idea Brendon".

    Not just that, but if we take a look at the sentence:

    "Mike's got some pretty strong views about where Brendon should bat"

    then let's think about what it means. Is there a consideration that by moving him to 5 you're putting the rest of the middle order out?

    Is there consideration that our other opener is grossly underperforming?

    Is there consideration that Ryder may eventually come back into the team, that other young batsmen are pushing for places in the middle order, that Ronchi may eventually take over test keeping and thus free up another specialist middle order batsman?

    No, as far as I can see there is not.

    Question - how come when the scores were tied at 170 - we then hit a four to win - but we only finished on 171.

    Why wasn't it 174?

    Sorry for not knowing the rules better - can someone explain this - or is it just how it is.

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

    If the batsmen complete the single before the ball goes over the boundary rope, the game is over automatically and it's not a four. If they chose not to run it would've been four.

    Should count as 4 IMO as it was Turdbach.
