    David Warner. Someone has to eventually replace Healy.

    I think dan would be the only interesting kiwi. ross and brendon would be conservative paint by numbers talkers.
    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.
    Overrated XI Warner, Rutherford, Steve Smith, Rahane, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaul

    Jesse Ryder will make an ace commentator. Great to pair him up with Craig McMillan or Ian Smith.

    Better, of course. But only because Bracken's bad knee has affected his abilities to call

    I dream of Ed Cowan replacing Healy. More realistically I think Vettori would make a very good commentator.

    Cowan and Warner as a duo in the commentary box is a recipe for hilarity.
