    Basically whenever our mediocre medium pace bowlers of the mid 2000s CBF, Jeets was thrust in.
    Thank you. I always felt bad when he was fed to the lions in India tours. He actually bowled pretty well on the previous tour of India for that two-test series. I'm not following this match super closely but I would've guessed NZ would play two spinners in Jeets and Martin with maybe Astle as the surprise pick. Kinda shocked Sodhi has leapfrogged Jeets and Astle, because he looked way too raw at the U-19 WC last year.

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

    Well they're all rubbish, why not pick someone who actually has the tools to be a proper test match bowler?
