    DL Vettori 22-10-39-5 on 2nd day of Auck vs ND. Assuming he can still get out of bed in the morning, he should be a lock for the test team.

    Yeah Dan the Man should come straight in provided he's fit enough because he's bowling better than his competition so far (not that it was unexpected or a high bar).

    I think we'll do ok. Test matches on home pitches are a world away from ODIs on slow low turners in Bangladesh, and our players are better at home. There will be more swing and for longer, the spinners won't be so important on early to mid season decks (not that Vettori is pitch reliant - he's the same everywhere) and our batsmen will at least be familliar with both the conditions and the West Indies attack style (pace dominant).

    Couldn't pick a winner though.

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

    It's a myth now that New Zealand pitches suit swing and seam. They have been roads ever since we sucked up to the BCCI in 2008/09.

    Early season pitches tbf. After Christmas is when it gets flaaaaaat. Also any New Zealand month is better for fast bowling than Bangladesh.

    Yeah I saw the recent Seddon Park guy Karl Johnson claimed they've very much narrowed down the science of laying on a 400-run HRV game in November now. ****ers.

    Last March the carry had died out of pretty much every pitch I saw except Eden Park No. 2 though, as Phlegm said.

    I take it the Windies is squad is likely to be the same one that's currently touring India? It's a pity as I'd really like to see Miguel Cummins get a bowl, and a series against a flimsy Kane-less top order is a pretty good place to make a debut.

    Nah i wouldn't say this team is certain to tour NZ!!..Powell's form of late has been a little iffy while Brathwaite has been on fire so if Kieran doesn't contribute i can see Kraigg replacing him. Shillingford could also be vulnerable if he gets knocked around the park as the shadow of Narine is always lurking behind him.

    Cummins is interesting but i'm not sure the selectord want to rush him at this juncture!!..he had a great first class season and a semi decent tour to India so i think they might let him have another first class season under his belt before he steps up!!..and he will because the lad really can move the ball around and has good pace.

    Rampaul would likely be someone to come into the attack if our pace unit needs mixing up. No doubt though i'm really looking forward to this one!! ..i'd imagine the kiwis will want revenge after the blowout in the caribbean between the two sides and no doubt it will be tightly contested!!..

    We scored 300+ in all three tests in the series we played in England last year so i think our batters are capable of adapting to the NZ conditions and the potential swing on offer.

    Any news as to whether Roach is likely to be fit in time for the tests?

    Jesse Ryder to Take Next Step Back to Black Caps | Stuff.co.nz

    Jesse to play in West Indies warm up match, it will be a good indication of where he is at. I see they are going to play a lot of the first team for the warm up match. I think these guys will be better off playing for the provences, given that only 6 WI guys will be here, give the up and commers a chance to make a name for themselves.

    Brendon McCullum (c) - Otago Volts, Todd Astle - Canterbury Wizards, James Baker - Northern Knights, Dean Brownlie - Canterbury Wizards, Mark Craig - Otago Volts, Peter Fulton - Canterbury Wizards, Tom Latham - Canterbury Wizards, Andrew Mathieson - Central Stags, Hamish Rutherford - Otago Volts, Jesse Ryder - Otago Volts, Anurag Verma - Northern Knights

    The only other FC game on at the same time is ND V CD which starts the day prior

    Wtf is Baker and Verma doing in this squad except because they are from ND. The list of better and more deserving domestic bowlers is a long one just off the top of my head:
    Bennett
    Henry
    Mitch
    Butler
    Duffy
    Bartlett
    Bates
    Gillespie

    Maybe Bradburn was worried his boys would miss out on a FC game due to the return of Boult and Southee

    Also Raval and Redmond to open WI

    I have just worked out what is happening
    There are T20 games on so
    Ak v Well 29/11 (Day 3 of warm up game)
    Ak v Can 30/11 (Day after)
    So they have pretty much excluded from selection all of the players who are likely to play in t20.

    This only stokes my rage
