    If we'd won all three home series against England, I suspect I would have.

    And I suspect the general public would have also.

    Can't fault, can't fault all the boys' efforts, gave it a red hot crack etc. Got Fulton, Rutherford and Wagner feeling their oats and setting up a small business extorting credulous Percy from Blackadder types, something the CW wets would've never greenlit.

    Hesson's on the ball yet again, saying the new season Dukes are "slightly different" to the ones they've been training with.

    Safe to say the cantankerous era would've never been delving into something this mundane and perfunctory, yet integral to results. Nice work Hess.

    He seems a Hesson/McCullum-like character; wouldn't be surprised if he got the call up for this tour should Martin go down.

    maybe James can get him to write articles
    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.

    You'd have to admit you were him though.

    The articles of a long serving famous first grade player would be awesome.
    Edit - as a wellingtonian I would be very interested in his stories.

    That's why Hesson annoys me. A lot of what he says and does backs up what we heard that he's meticulous with his attention to detail and isn't a cliche kiwi coach, but he's just as "jobs for the boys" as half the other blokes in NZ sporting organisations.

    He could be such a good coach if he wasn't a lying ****.

    So McCullum will be arriving in England today. Unreasonable to suggest that he should play in tomorrow's warmup game? A 13 hour flight isn't easy to shake-off, but it'd be really good for him to get back into the middle asap, after his pointless sojourn in India. And if that means that Guptill has to miss out on an undeserved chance to make a push for the test team, well then that's just a happy consequence of McCullum's return.

    That's exactly it. Good to see common sense prevail and the two of them head to England instead of sitting on the bench doing nothing in India.

    If only they'd left a couple of days earlier.

    But common sense has not prevailed they are still unavailable for the first warm up match. This descision should have been made 5 days ago. Especially for ross he needs as much warm up as possible to rediscover his 2012 form. He was very scratchy against england, century included.

    I would also like to add that Vettori should have also left and should be playing league cricket in England, assuming that he wants to be effective at the champions trophy and regain his test spot, he has not bowled well (in any form of cricket) since he gave up the captaincy.
