    Ben Wheeler come on down? Wouldn't mind Sodhi/NcCullum out for Santner.
    Direbirds FTW!

    Ah ****, I forgot to put Santner in the poll. Any votes for Ed Nuttall count for Santner.

    My vote for ntall Santner did not work.
    Kumar Sangakarra averages over 69 as a specialist batsman. I'm glad we resolved that whole Tendulkar vs Lara thing.

    Duffy
    Bracewell
    Wagner
    Elliott
    McCleneghan.

    Duffy being the bolter, ahead of Sodhi and Nathan McCullum. The others pretty much pick themselves having been regular features of the test/odi squads.

    Howsie's been viewing this thread for about half an hour now. He's thinking about how he can participate in the poll without giving Elliott any acknowledgement of success.

    if Munro actually does get picked he'll have to find something else to whine about

    Haha. Elliott is okay.

    For mine Nathan McCullum, Colin Munro, Ish Sodhi and Neil Wagner should all get chop. Mitchell Santner, Doug Bracewell, Grant Elliott, Ben Wheeler and probably Hamish Rutherford should all get the call ups.

    I'd be keeping Wagner, especially since we seem obsessed with a hit the deck bowler and when Wagner is bowling well he's a match winner.

    ...Just try and predict when he's not going to bowl well through magic or something...

    Will make my choices soon. Definitely chopping Rutherford, not because I think he has no hope but because I want him to spend a lot of time away from the test team getting better.

    I made my calls then realised I'd dropped Mitch M, who will get in probably ahead of Brownlie or Wheeler in real life imo. I've also dropped Santner because I forgot the vote for Nutter. Grumpy will approve of the mitch dropping.

    I went with Wagner, Elliott, Brownlie, Wheeler and Dougeh. I think there's merit in keeping a few old guys to smooth the transition between world cup squads and I want to keep Brownlie and as many fringe test seamers as I can in the loop.

    You can actually offer a contract to six players in the poll btw. Mills' retirement adding the extra one.

    I agree, in real life he will be and I'd pick him too, I just forgot to.
