I think I see why most middle order batsmen don't wanna move up.
We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

There is no way in hell Guptill should be playing test cricket as a middle order batsman ahead of Brownlie in the near or medium future, and probably not the far future either.

I want Brownlee to score another couple of 75+ scores when the match is still alive before I am sold on him. I think he has been given a slightly easy ride by some NZ posters.

You could always let that nerve-wracking little three-footer fall into the back edge of the cup by picking him as a spinner, that's been proven to loosen up the pipe.

On a semi-related note, Southee did a decent job in the slips during the last test, should he perhaps make a more permanent move there?
Name Guptill in the squad and keep him on for every over in the field as the sub fielder.
Can you even do that? Sub fielder rule should definitely be a rule ripe for abuse.
Well you're a bowler and you're pretty good at catching hard red balls.
