    I thought this the other day. Plus, we have about 4 spinners that are better than their ones.

    Tbf though NZ having better spin bowlers than Aus is more or less a fact while your claim to be able to win a debate on the works of a medieval playwright with a bovine are much more speculative.

    Yeah, and at this stage I'd probably take their openers over ours as well.

    Cowan, Warner, Williamson, Clarke, Taylor, McCullum

    Awta, Lyon did alright against SA, and Bartin was pretty hit and miss

    I'd swap Clarke and Taylor due to Clarke's weirdness with being moved from number five but other than that you're pretty spot on as things stand. A fit Ryan Harris would get a spot ahead of someone (and he's fit right now) but that's probably going to be as rare as a fit Bond was.

    WTF? Who exactly are these four great spinners? NZ has terrible spinners.

    Lyon is definitely better than anyone we have.

    The one's I had in mind were Bartin, Vettori, Patel, and Tastle.

    But I was kidding in a WW kind of way.

    Plus, Williamson is one of our four best "spinners".

    TBH, Aus vs NZ would be an interesting match up at the moment.

    We'd get Patto'd again.

    Though we'd Southoult them.

    But they have Clarke.
