    I don't think I'll be ready to handle watching cricket again in time for this.

    Just to remind everyone what our test team looks like - and who I think should be there

    Raval
    Latham
    Kane
    Ross
    Nicholls
    BJ
    CDG or Neesh
    Two of Santner/Somerville/Ajaz

    Wagner
    Boult

    Wouldnít take Sodhi or Astle. Donít rate either of them at this stage to take wickets or keep it tight.

    Take Southee as spare fast bowler. With Neesh and CDG there, I expect weíll have seam bowling covered.

    Then do they take a spare batsman, or does Neesham cover that and Nicholls can open? Since they canít take Young whoís obviously next cab off the rank now.

    Letís get this World Test Championship off to a good start and get our butts back to Lords!

    i was thinking about this yesterday at work to take my mind off the cancelled final and imo we should go horses for courses. cdg out, trust santner at #7. i know my mantra is wickets are everything in tests but his bowling should be effective on these pitches.

    latham
    raval
    kane
    ross
    nicholls
    watling
    santa
    southee
    wagner
    ajaz
    boult

    ajaz is our most subcontinenty finger spinner so i would play him. the rest of the squad would be cdg, ferguson, somerville and blundell.

    for the england series santner would leave the squad or remain as spin cover unless he piles on the runs this tour. neesham would take over as reserve allrounder. potentially somerville comes in for ajaz at home.

    Maybe Neesham could spend some time with Jeetan Patel too

    TIL we haven't toured Sri Lanka in 7 years.

    Spin bowling all-rounder, with Somerville being variety to Santner:
    1. Latham
    2. Raval
    3. Williamson
    4. Taylor
    5. Nicholls
    6. Watling+
    7. Santner
    8. Wagner
    9. Southee
    10. Somerville
    11. Boult

    Two seamers
    1. Raval
    2. Latham
    3. Williamson
    4. Taylor
    5. Nicholls
    6. Watling+
    7. Santner
    8. Somerville
    9. Patel
    10. Southee
    11. Boult

    I would take de Grandhomme in the squad. We may want the option of Boult + de Grandhomme with the new ball, Wags doing Wags stuff, 2 spinners. Gives you a third option to the 3 seamers or 2 seamers XI mentioned by NZTailender above.

    The selector's choice of a 2nd front line spinner to partner Ajaz will be interesting. At the end of the NZ summer they went for Astle, partly due to batting, partly due to him being the incumbent and then injured before the UAE tests, and IMHO partly due to his succes in Cant Plunket Shield under Stead. I would pick Ajaz + Sommerville.

    Well the last time NZA was in a part of the world that had them examining their spin-centric FC batting depth, Larsen would've felt very vindicated on the prospects of Ravindra maybe being middle-order batting cover for this tour, if you'd told him Young was unavailable.




    I mean he's likely to have had a chat with Raval, who's going to tell him Rachin's found a pretty equal match in Ranji Division 3 Pondicherrian academy spinners on tricky wickets. Larsen then probably asked "how many have you been scoring against the same attacks?". He's done him there, which gets Rachin immediately back in the frame.

    I remember that tour so clearly. It was the first time since about 2004 that Iíd felt optimistic about the teamís future.
