    ***Official*** New Zealand in India 2016

    So, didn't realize this was so close. Barely 3 weeks to go till this begins

    1st test: 22nd September, Kanpur

    2nd test: 30th September, Kolkata

    3rd test : 8th October, Indore

    Interesting selection of venues. No nagpur. Booooooooooooo.

    And there are 5 ODIs too I guess.

    A great pity, I was looking forward to this thread going full nuclear when another pitch designed to kill test cricket was to be rolled out.

    My NZ squad:

    Raval
    Latham
    Williamson
    Taylor
    Nicholls
    Watling
    Santner
    Sodhi
    Wagner
    Southee/Craig
    Boult

    Craig/Southee
    Anderson, assuming he's fit to bowl
    Bracewell
    Ronchi, I guess

    It's the familiar quandary in Asia of playing seam bowlers, who are our generally better bowlers, in the unhelpful conditions, or playing the sub-par spinners. All of Southee, Boult and Wagner seems like overkill, so I've bracketed Southee with Craig, or you could instead choose Anderson for that spot. Two of Anderson/ Sodhi/ Craig does give you a lot of potential for complete loss of control though.

    Don't know yet whether the pitches will be on the roady side, spin paradises like SA's last tour, or somewhere in the middle like our last India tour, and that may affect selection. If it's a real turner our spinner most able to take advantage of that is probably Sodhi, bowling flattish like he does in limited overs.

    Despite being a Henry > Bracewell kinda guy there's absolutely no point taking Henry to India right now, so Bracewell gets carried along. Would love to replace Ronchi but should probably wait for the next domestic season to replace him with the best-performing local wicketkeeper.

    It's goodbye to Guptill too, obv.

    Edit: Oh yeah, and if it so happened that Jeets were available, I'd be inclined to select him.

    It is, unfortunately. It'll be towards the end of the monsoon in late September, so it should be all right but you never know.

    Guptill (don't laugh, I reckon he could be handy bullying the new ball for the first 5 overs before the spinners come on - and I'd rather debut a new guy on home soil)
    Latham
    KW
    Taylor
    Nicholls
    Watling
    Santner
    Sodhi/Craig
    Wagner
    Southee
    Boult

    Kinda feel yuck for rewarding Southee's continued average bowling with another automatic pick, but India's a poor place to throw Henry/somebody else a start with the new ball.

    Southee bowled well in the second test ffs. Well in the first innings after his poor opening spell, and then bowled superbly in the 2nd innings. Much better than his last 18 months. But Boult should be taking over #1

    Yeah same here. Damn it!!

    The India-South Africa thread was so much fun
    "This is a clash of strategy. And of methods, culture and politics. This is a new-era rivalry. Not as ancient as the Ashes, or as passionate as India-Pakistan. Two countries that are so different, yet share rampant egotism, high self-opinion and a belief that being born in their country is superior to other births. This brings together a belligerent bunch of brats, bullies and braggers."- Jarrod Kimber

    I reckon NZ should select Devcich and play him if the pitches are Dean Elgar 7fer worthy. The world needs to see crickets two biggest dickheads in Devcich and Kohli going hammer and tongs at each other.

    Hammer and tongs with their mouths of course. Neither would score a run in such a series because they're both hacks.

    In terms of building pressure he certainly did. Part of the reason why we did so **** in the first innings is Boult was bowling superbly and Southee was just like "oi mate want me to open the door to let all this pressure out?"

    Nicholls
    Anderson/Santner
    Watling
    Craig
    Wagner
    Boult
    Southee

    Sodhi
    Henry
    whoever the **** else.

    If Anderson is fit, or even Neeshm for that matter, they bat six, Watling seven, Santner eight (arghh). Sodhi has to play too so that leaves two spots left, which would go to Southee and Boult for mine.

    Guptill
    Latham
    Williamson
    Taylor
    Nicholls
    Anderson
    Watling
    Santner
    Sodhi
    Southee
    Boult

    no way am I leaving out Wagner.

    Horses for courses is fine but nope. He's an automatic selection.

    You just can't play three pacers, especially if we have Anderson back.
