    It's the idea that Guptill looks awesome but scores no runs. He's **** despite having a (seemingly) good technique.

    Fulton, on the other hand, looks terrible at times but still finds a way to score runs.

    Well to me Guptill doesn't look awesome and has a terrible technique.

    guptil's defensive system is flawed thus he always gets out.

    But he has a sexy straight drive - and some other classy shots that give the illusion of a good technique.

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

    Hardly ever get to examine Guptill's technique tbh, always getting out too quickly.

    well, yeah, but every batsman's straight drive looks sexy.

    The problem is that he tries to play a straight drive to every ball.

    Ruthers, probably. Fulton, not yet, but I hope he proves me wrong as he did in this series.

    I would like to believe Rutherford will have the goods but like most NZ cricket fans I have seen many players hyped up to become the next best thing only to fizzle away. I hope Fulton will continue his form but against quality bowlers on a moving deck I think he will be shown up.

    As for Guptil, I think he should just stick to the shorter forms of the game.

    With Vettori?

    I think Guptill's future in the first class game is at #5ish in the order.

    Or that, but it's pretty cramped down there.

    Rutherford looks like a no.5. Latham too,

    It's like ten thousand number 5s when all you need is an opener.
