    Don't squander the gold of your days making a shrine of cricket videos, trying to improve the hopeless failure, giving your life away to the Blockys, the Devciches and the Weerasundaras! Surrender your devout little cricketing heart to the inured agribusinessman.

    I reckon prior to this round Latham as the incumbent A team opener and skipper was a lot closer to the test side than CW as a whole would have him. Hesson won't pick front foot dominant batsmen like Papps no matter how many runs he scores and the selectors don't appear to rate Raval. It's between Latham and Guptill and if Latham gets a double today he is the next cab off the rank imo.

    It's pretty clear that Latham is liked within the NZ setup so they'll obviously be happy with the runs he's scoring. I just honestly can't see them dropping Rutherford or Fulton yet. They haven't been terrible at all and I do believe our selectors have moved on slightly from the days of discarding openers at the first opportunity.

    I'd be really interested to know whether Latham got told to open in FC by Hesson etc or whether he chose to do so because he saw that as his best opportunity. He always opened in age group cricket so it's not anything new to him but he'd done alright in the middle order until now. He probably is a natural opener in a similar mold to someone like Langer, good tight defense but enough shots once he gets going. He and Rutherford could form an excellent partnership if they figure things out at the top level.

    Question is, do you want him in the team yet?

    Haven't watched his knock yet, but as I said in the Rutherford chat we have time before India to let blokes play and string a good run of scores together before making a decision. No sense in rushing.

    But his stocks have gone up from 24 hours ago. Would love to see him back this up in the next few games.

    Just seen Auckland's batting line up. Below the top 3 and Hopkins it's all icing. Munro at 4!

    It definitely feels weird to think that a side that had to bat Munro at four still needed to bowl de Grandhomme at first change.

    Munro's earned the right to have a crack at being an icing player anyway though with the runs he's scored lower down. It's not all been downhill skiing.

    Guptill with back to back tons now. Not a big fan of his in the longer format but good to see him and others scoring runs from the top.

    I will break something if he makes it back into the test squad ahead of Latham.
