    Forgot about that. So probably Henry, possibly Ferguson but if they want a left arm replacement for a left arm seamer they might go Wheeler. Or, we might see Bennett getting a surprise recall.

    No wonder the players weren't all that keen to play yesterday if this occurred recently.

    Yeah I don't blame the players one bit for not wanting to play in Napier if it was still squelchy in spots. Sounds like the ground-staff did what they could, so the responsiblity is purely on the board managing the ground afaics.

    Ed Nuttall, another young fast bowler, is also out for the season after diving in the outfield in a domestic T20 (though I don't know if ground condition played a part), so that risk would definitely would be in the NZ players' minds.

    ****-ass, our best bowling these days too. Mind, if anyone's going to recover quickly & possibly play with a little pain if he's not quite 100%, it's Waggers.

    I hate Henry's Test lengths, I'd honestly prefer a bolter, even if it was a Ferguson. (Hears a big sigh from Bahnz...)

    Zak Gibson?

    Really it should just be Kuggs but NZC won't man up and back their man.

    Nah Kuggs needs to be cleared in this trial before getting anywhere near national selection, & tbf he did make himself unavailable in the meantime.

    Are you guys expecting NZ to make any big changes to the Test side (I know Wagner's probably out, but apart from him).

    SA will likely stick to the same XI that played against SL, with only Maharaj perhaps coming in for Olivier, depending on conditions.

    I reckon NZ should go with the bowling unit hendrix suggested - boult, ferguson/milne, wagner, santner, anderson/neesham

    and i reckon we should pick tom bruce at #5

    Will be no changes except the injury enforced.

    Horribly out of form, played 2 games of red-ball in 6 months, probably not suited to 3rd seamer, Matt Henry will come in for Wags.

    Consistency of selection is a good thing, but sometimes not.

    A high profile series which wouldn't be telecasted in India.

    ****ing disgrace.

    Both Nicholls at 5 and De Grandhomme at 6 are under significant pressure to retain their spots, so if either fails in the first test we could perhaps see a change for the second. There are several others that could come in; of these Neesham has been batting well so imo should be the first up (and as bad as his bowling is, it's still better than not having that option). Find it especially hard to see De Grandhomme scoring runs, his bowling is handy in NZ conditions but at 6 the primary job is scoring runs. Other names for the middle order - Brownlie, Broom, Bruce, Anderson, Munro, and I've probably forgotten a couple more.

    SA will be licking their lips as soon as NZ are three down this series.
