    Well if he wants to commit to being an opener, despite my scepticism, there's likely an NZ spot up for grabs in the near future.

    Flem will rightfully point out that Raval should be given first dibs unless he has a shocking season. Possibly even Papps too.

    Latham for me is like Milne. I want him in the team but he's got to properly prove himself first.

    Raval is only a thing because of that 55 Auckland venues average tbh, I don't think any of you would be even attracted to him if he was a Wellington opener averaging about 34. Crabs across, glances off hip, four runs.

    There is that home-ground caveat yes, but hey, that technique works for Graeme Smith and Simon Katich

    He has that Seddon Park 100 this season, but would want to see another one away from home to shake his reputation as a home town bully.

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

    He goes 200+ he has a 50/50 chance of getting in. He goes 250+ he has a 75% chance. He gets less than 200 and he has no chance for India.

    He's on 130 not out. I think they would declare before he got to 250

    So does that mean you're in the Latham camp? You don't seem to be a big Rutherford fan either.

    Outside choice Daniel Flynn?

    Yeah I'd be with you on Latham over Rutherford for the Indian series, I watched Latham's full innings in Dambulla for NZ A a while back obvs. Reached the end of that video with neither a 'put a line through Latham for a while' nor a 'get him in there' feeling. A bit fiddly and creasebound, and we still haven't really seen him playing the short ball well since he looked dire against it vs. India A at Lincoln. There is undeniably more strike rotation and a much higher activity rate with Latham though, and less retardation against spin. You can also see him berate himself harshly for mistakes with his body language and showing an intense commitment to improve, which is good.

    Kippax's tl;dr answer is that they're all just placeholders until 2017 or so, obvs.
