    Likelihood of Vettori ever returning to test cricket.

    As per the poll, what do you guys rate as the likelihood of him ever returning to test cricket.

    I've gone between 26% and 50%. I think he has a desire to get to 400 wickets and if he gets his body into any sort of shape, he's still good enough to hold his test spot. I just think at the moment bowling more than ten overs is beyond him, so it'll take some amazing rehabilitation and recovery from the problems he's had.

    I reckon the World Cup will be his swansong, particularly if we do as well in it as I hope we do, and I don't see him playing any Tests in the interim. So I've gone 0-25%.

    Yeah 0-25%. End his career on a World Cup at home makes sense.

    Yeah, that's what I would have thought. Maybe sneak a few T20 contracts after that.

    This is so awesome, a bit of a strange one given that it's one-off if it happens but awesome all the same

    but tbh, the most value Vettori would add to our team would be as the sole spinner, not one of 3 spinners on a bunsen.

    Don't kid yourself, it might be sold as a one off at the moment but if Vettori came back and performed well (And got closer to his long held 400 wickets goal) then I think you'd suddenly see him become "Available" in general for tests.

    I dunno, my experience with Vettori is that he generates wickets for other players - you tend to see some pretty **** dismissals happen quite regularly at the other end when he's bowling - that could be great news for the Andersons, Sodhis and Craigs.

    I really don't think he'll be fit enough to do that, again I'd love to see it but he's barely fit enough to play a single test as part of a 3-man spin attack, no way he'd get himself together to be the lone spinner back home IMO, this really seems like a "can you help us one last time?" kind of thing from the selectors to me

    That's my point exactly. From the reports he's only going to be bowling 10-15 overs an innings, which is not exactly "tying down an end".

    There's very little point in Vettori playing as a strike bowler, IMO.
