    A 6 ball duck - not the most glorious start to the Championship for KW. Also, Jeets off the mark for Warks.

    ^ KW's dismissal.

    A narrator and sound from the venue? Step back, wild child.

    Fulton retained apparently LOL. Patel recalled but he turned them down because he'd rather play County cricket, even bigger LOL. That will be him done in international cricket.

    Yea it will be the end for Patel, I don't understand his logic but maybe he wasn't keen to go and carry drinks. There could still be some bitterness from how he was dropped as well.

    Plus he's got a wife and new baby. Probably looking for some stability and being able to settle down somewhere for the season with his family.

    It's a pretty mistifying decision. Was Patel really that worried about holding onto his spot with Warks? Given how bare the spin cabinet is in the first division of the CC, it's hard to believe there's much risk of him being replaced after a month of test cricket. A curious end to a sadly unfulfilled career.

    I guess it'll be Tastle then for the second spinner's spot. The way that article read, it made it seem like the selectors were seriously considering playing two spinners. If they do, I might have to kill someone.

    It's not like Warks is his permanent home though. Seems a rather short term decision. I hope it's not one of those ones he regrets later on.

    Two mediocre leggies will be fun.

    He might be starting to think that it is. If he continues to perform, there's nothing stopping him from playing for them for another 4 years. As a senior pro on the county circuit, Jeets is probably making more than he could reasonably hope to get from playing 2 tests a year for New Zealand. They're also clearly rather fond of him, what with winning the player of the year award, and Bell proclaiming him the best spinner in England. It's also quite clear that Ish has been marked as the annointed one, and that nobody else will get a look in except for the occasional sub-continent and WI tours. He's probably decided to stick with the sure source of income, rather than hold out hope that he'll catch a fourth wind with New Zealand.

    New Zealand Cricket - Ronchi and Craig in line for BLACKCAPS Test debut

    BLACKCAPS Test squad for tour to the West Indies
    Brendon McCullum (c) - Otago Volts
    Corey Anderson - Northern Knights
    Trent Boult - Northern Knights
    Mark Craig - Otago Volts
    Peter Fulton - Canterbury Wizards
    Tom Latham - Canterbury Wizards
    James Neesham - Otago Volts
    Luke Ronchi – Wellington Firebirds
    Hamish Rutherford - Otago Volts
    Ish Sodhi - Northern Knights
    Tim Southee - Northern Knights
    Ross Taylor - Central Stags
    Neil Wagner - Otago Volts
    BJ Watling - Northern Knights
    Kane Williamson - Northern Knights

    Hesson says that the 27-year-old Craig provides a nice balance with leg spinner Ish Sodhi.

    "Mark has had a strong Plunket Shield taking 22 wickets and his right-arm off-spinners will be valuable against their left-handed heavy top order batting line-up. He’s been in our sights for some time and was also chosen for our winter training squad.”

    Hesson confirmed that Daniel Vettori was not available for the tour saying he felt his bowling loads were not yet up to the intensity of Test cricket after major Achilles surgery last June. Jeetan Patel was also unavailable for the tour but for personal reasons.
    New Zealand A squad for tour to England
    BJ Watling (c) - Northern Knights
    Hamish Bennett - Canterbury Wizards

    Grant Elliott - Wellington Firebirds
    Matt Henry - Canterbury Wizards
    Scott Kuggeleijn - Northern Knights
    Tom Latham - Canterbury Wizards
    Adam Milne - Central Stags
    Daryl Mitchell - Northern Knights
    Colin Munro - Auckland Aces (returns after one-day matches)
    Hamish Rutherford - Otago Volts
    Ish Sodhi - Northern Knights (returns after one-day matches)

    Well that was unexpected. Not about about Ronchi's selection - McCullum can't fill in for BJ even for one-off tests anymore, and given that Latham is only in the fledgling stages of his career as an opener you wouldn't want to over burden him with the keeping duties in an emergency. But Craig...I mean granted we were starting to take a curious look at his performances, but the guy hasn't even been close to an A tour, let alone a full call-up. The fact that the selectors have desperately picked an offie ahead of Tastle also strongly suggests that they are planning to play two spinners. I mean honestly, do these ****wits learn nothing?

    Wow. Gotta be gutted for Tastle to top the PS wickets, be overlooked in favour of Jeets and then be overlooked again in favour of a guy with 43 FC wickets at 43. I'm excited of course for the new guy, but geeez...

    Henry being injured again (as mentioned in another article) is very disappointing and I wholeheartedly disagree with the non-selection of a reserve quick (aside from Neesham), while we are taking two reserve batsmen. Ronchi is completely unnecessary when we have an emergency-reserve keeper in Latham already in the squad, and I definitely would not have retained both Fulton and Rutherford either.

    As Bahnz said, there are several things that point to them thinking of playing two spinners - some phrasing in articles, that they didn't want two legspinners but rather a point of difference, that there's no reserve quick... But surely not, surely not...
