    don't forget the great tradition of lesser aussies scoring truckloads of runs against us then failing against everyone else.

    Fmd that'd be an uninspired little release right there. Thanks for going out on a limb, David Leggat.

    Pretty good looking squads (especially after the last couple of months).

    ODI top order still a bit dicey...

    MM won't be fit in time for May. But is in line to be fit for ODIs in June.

    Surely at least one game will be rained out?

    Funnily enough, I thought barring rain Eng would win 3-0 in NZ.

    Now, there appears to be hope. That's probably when we fall over.

    Yeah, happy with those squads.

    Think it's about time Cricinfo updated their profile for Ronchi...
    Born in New Zealand, he is a man Australia will be thrilled to call their own over the next few years.

    They must be going to open with Ronchi. EDIT - yes they are. The only other option in there is McCullum, and I don't think that's happening. Funny someone like Papps scores a lot of 50 over runs, but they pick someone who had a pretty average Ford Trophy and HRV Cup. Hope they are right (yes, I think Ronchi is a better ODI option than Papps also).

    No BJ in the ODI squad? He was doing well down the order a few months ago. Put him up the order, he fails. So they drop him. Stink buzz.

    Nuffy Ellis in the squad but no Matt Henry (easily the best limited overs bowler in the country this season), what a crock of ****. Watling missing out is pretty harsh.

    Franklin
    Elliott
    Ellis

    God we need some all rounders, these guys are the weakest spot in our team (although Franko there isn't to bad).

    Slightly harsh on Butler, given he took tons of wickets for Otago as a first change seamer. Reckon Latham should be in the ODI squad and Ronchi in the test squad. Interesting that they seem to have shelved the Milne experiment for the winter.

    Agree that BJ missing out on the ODI squad is an eyebrow raiser. I presume Ronchi is pretty much guaranteed to open the batting then?
