    I think McMillan would be given a chance before Oram and Vettori.

    Vettori I don't think has captained any side but I think he's capable of giving it a go.

    Cairns wouldn't be a replacement option though would he as he's no longer in Tests?

    Vettori has always struck me as an intelligent cricketer.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Vettori is extremely intelligent. I've read articles about the fact that he knows every historical achievement in cricket since it began, team & individual records etc.
    He has huge respect for the game & its traditions & he's well respected among his peers.

    It's just unfortunate that he's performed poorly with the ball lately..he's kind of lost his way but hopefully his 5 wicket bag in the Natwest final is a sign of good things to come.

    Giving McMillan the captaincy is a disaster waiting to happen...he loses his cool too quickly & someone clever enough could easily get under his skin.

    He shouldn't be in the team let alone captaincy IMO.
