    iirc Hesson pretty much picked this squad, when it was annouced littlejohn was already on the outer,
    I find the two leggies odd cause when McHesson dropped Astle for the South African tour they pretty much said we wont a finger spinner to tie up an end so we can attack with Southee/Boult.
    Given we have a surpluss of left armers surely the push should be on finding a quality offspinner/chinaman to complement them - i personally think that it is a negative to Kanes development for him to be expected to throw 10-15 overs a day and eventually have to go to perth for testing.
    So imo it would have been better to have taken a punt on Craig/Singh/Johnstone, because in the likely event on both Astle and Sodhi been taken to in this game who are you going to use to tie up an end, Gillespie goes for plenty as did Bracewell last time he was in the sub continent Cachopa/Neesham ??

    Interesting little game to be in NZ's vault. I presume this may've been what was expected when the 'screw Raval...Munners could open!' plan was first drafted -

    Richardson's first game as an opener was on an A tour, it is an oppourtunity for Broom because he is starting to run out of time, and given that it is india the best place to bat usually is opening the batting

    Yeah I agree with that, found it really odd Littlejohn and Buchanan were both on tour with the U19s at the time the squad was put out. Tastle fits in with Hesson's 'if playing two spinners, one must bat' rule.

    Prior to moving to CD he scored a few big hundreds for Auckland and was quite like MacIntosh would go big than have a poor run, his move coincided with the change in scoring system and i wonder if the need to accelerate the scoring for points has caused him to throw away his wicket

    I'll understand if they get out to Ladda or Kulkarni, but if they don't pile it on against the rest...well..

    I don't disagree with that, but then again unlike Mike5181 with his eternal love of Neil Broom () I don't think Broom is likely to succeed for NZ. So he might as well open and perhaps one day may get to be more NZ opener grist to the international fast bowlers' mill.

    Run out for 10 though is a bit of bad luck... or bad management.

    I would agree with that when you look at the current side there is only one middle order spot available until McCullum retires following the World cup, in an ideal world McHesson would like someone who can justify there place with the bat and bowl some medium pace hence the inclusion of Cachopa/Anderson/Neesham/Munro with Ryder being possibly there prefered choice

    51/3 ffs
