    Even if it was being considered, I doubt it would happen if the Ryder/Hesson meeting goes well. Williamson, Taylor, Ryder, Brownlie, and Watling sounds like a solid middle-order considering what we had in the tests against South Africa.

    Brownlie to open then?

    I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowd
    one day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.

    From what I've heard, a lot of what he was talking about was Brendon being forced to be overly defensive, so it may not necessarily be a move down the order but a change in batting mindset that Hesson is going for.

    I know right. Was on the news. From a radio live phone interview with the big man himself.

    Well if he wants to...better than being forced to. And makes the whole opening and middle order congestion problem a little bit easier. Whether or not he can handle it, we'd have to wait and see.

    Looks as though they aren't going to chop Guptill just yet. Why not send him home from the ODIs now so he can play some FC cricket?

    Does this mean we could see
    1. J Ryder
    2. M Guptill
    3. K Williamson
    4. R Taylor/B McCullum
    5. B McCullum/R Taylor
    6. D Brownlie
    7. BJ Watling+
    8. D Vettori
    9. D Bracewell
    10. T Southee
    11.T Boult?

    Yeah, that's fair. I probably was a bit rash with my reaction to Vaughan's comments.

    I was mostly just taking exception to the fact that he casually made that statement, without even acknowledging that it's one of our (VERY few) strengths at the moment.

    In giving reasons why England are superior to NZ, why only pick the one department where we're actually pretty decent and come the closest to England in terms of skill levels? The gulf between the two sides is MUCH smaller in seam bowling than it is in every other department.

    3:15 in, he'd like to open in ODIs and T20 is all he says, is it not.

    I may have misheard or the news may have cut the interview into misleading air bites. Dtstl
