    The players to watch in that team are:
    Peter Fulton, Ross Taylor & Richard Sherlock..and probably Jamie How.

    Richard Sherlock surprised me some what.

    If Jesse Ryder can pull his head in, it probably won't be long before he is there.

    State Insurance has naming rights to New Zealand's domestic teams.

    Hence 'State Canterbury Wizards'.

    not so sure about the selections of Walmsley / Wiseman & Mason - I'd rather have seen the likes of Thompson / Gillespie / Scott / Redmond so far as future prospects go...........

    good to see the likes of Fulton, B Martin, Sherlock, Vincent, How & Franklin there...............I guess the big looser in McIntosh as he's not injured / not available.............pity Adams isn't available to try & push for a place...........

    batting looks strong but the bowling prabably lacks experience at top flight - presumably the reasoning behind the selections of Mason & Walmsley rather than the newer kids on the block as mentioned above...........

    Jesse Ryder not pulling his head in by seeing him at his birthday bash the other day.

    Sherlock is a good choice. Saw him bowling just last weekend again and he is looking very sharp. Hope he can hold off the stress fractures.

    Mark Gillespie has a few social issues so don't think you will see him in a team in the near future unless he is performing outstandingly.

    Redmond has moved to otago so hopefully he will get more chances to prove himself as I have no doubt that he could be a big name in the future.
    As is macIntosh. Moved to Canterbury and I think it is a good choice to get him out of the shadow or Richardson. Him and Papps could have a good opening partnership.

    Attention players don't move to Otago, you will never get selected in any rep team.

    Pleased to see Sherlock selected, i advoctaed his selection on this board a while back. He's young - sure, inexperienced - yep. But he's got pace, and we're not blessed with that in this country.

    I saw him at the Gym yesterday - i can't believe a guy that skinny (i was going to say puny, but maybe thats a bit harsh) can bowl that fast. Whippet like.

    Chris Martin was also there seeing both of them there standing next to each other , well thankfully there wasn't a strong breeze - they'd both be knocked down.

    But if you think of guys like Mohammed Sami, Ajit Agarkar etc...it is possible to be quick if you're skinny.

    Bell
    How
    Sinclair
    Fulton
    Vincent
    Taylor
    Hopkins
    Franklin
    B Martin
    Sherlock
    C Martin

    looks a fairly decent lineup - only missing a medium pace swing option such as Styris..........does Fulton still bowl or what about How?????
