    My opinion on that hasn't changed. It was a bad pick. It's great that it worked out and he bowled well yesterday, but I think it's best to ease him into it.

    Well shortcuts don't work 99% of the time, and NZC are trying to take shortcuts with Sodhi, so this will bite us in the arse this summer. I'm extremely dubious he announced himself yesterday and will be test standard from this point forward. He's going to cop some absolute pastings over the next few seasons if he keeps getting picked, but hopefully there will be some good performances in between the dross to make it worthwhile.

    I'd love to see us send him back to FC level after this - he can go back on a bit of a high after a highly encouraging introduction to Tests. That should give him a ton of confidence and do him a world of good. Then he can return again at a later date.

    Only problem with that is who do we pick when we need a spinner? Bartin's not up to it, I'm afraid.

    We pick him when we need a spinner, but we shouldn't need one against WI and India in our back yard.

    Yeah, the Windies batting is a completely different kettle of fish to the Bangerz, and they're pretty good players of spin to boot. Let's not even talk about what the Indians will do to him. Further, the home pitches will be no where near as generous as this one. I'm hoping that Danny gets back into the Ps, but even if he doesn't I think Sodhi should be kept in the domestix this season.

    I still think Sodhi ought to get at least one home series before being cast aside given this performance, especially if he bowls well in the second dig, I agree he probably shouldn't be thought of as a long term solution yet though

    Yeah despite thinking this won't last, he deserves some perseverance if Vettori isn't fit. Hopefully Vettori is ready for the West Indies series so he can come in as the rightful number one spinner.

    he is thought of as the long term solution. That's the point. Ease him into it, let him pick up experience here and there.

    Basically, it's not dropping him, it's understanding when he should be selected.

    Hopefully that will mean in a couple of years he can be a permanent fixture in the side without having to go through too many Tahir type performances.

    That drive is more like the Anderson I expected.

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

    Danny, weren't we jizzing about how we had a group who could be together for ten years five years ago?

    The fulfilling of potential needs to start now. Today. Terms like "rebuilding" and "youth" are just excuses for being rubbish and are attempts to buy an artificial grace period.

    Yeah, I wasn't clear, I meant Sodhi shouldn't be expected to put in good performances regularly at international level over the next 2 years, and therefore he shouldn't be picked too often but given this performance he has at least earned a chance to prove himself.
