    I'd think that Sri Lanka would qualify but the major question is, can they qualify above the West Indies? That will decide what pool they are in if I understand correctly, so if they are the top qualifier they are in Group A and if they are the 2nd ranked qualifier they are in Group B. I think NZ will be able to progress through with wins over South Africa and the 2nd Qualifier (probably Sri Lanka) but I think Pakistan might beat them.

    Why is Hamish Marshall in the team?

    Poor record over all in List A, poor record in last 20 One day internationals. Apparently it is because of a good season in England?

    His record is poor there as well:

    Gloucestershire 12 12 2 322 105* 32.20 1 1 9

    Hamish Marshall is in the team because he is a favourite of John Bracewell's. No he is actually a reasonably handy ODI player, considering that he saves around 15-20 runs in the field. Besides a ODI average of 30 is alright for a New Zealand middle order batsman, he can usually be quite effective during the middle of an innings at keeping the scoreboard ticking over with his lightning quick running between the wickets.

    Well I wouldn't call him a good one day player at all. His List A average at 27.73 is worse. ODI's, last 20 matches have been horrendous. The current average of 30 is also largely because of almost 16% not outs. Strike rate at 70 is poor as well.

    Fielding - it is important in one day cricket but surely you can't take a player who is not a good enough batsman just because of his fielding.

    Gotta remember this is the New Zealand team, we don't have a huge number of talented batsmen. Like I said before, Marshall is an ok player, but he is also a favourite of John Bracewell's.

    Some one was dropped and maybe he could have been persisted with or some one else could still have been tried. Now would have been the right time to try I would imagine as else it could become too late.

    It does seem a Bracewell thing like you mention.

    SA paying generously to top their group considering Pak will have no Inzy and the Younis debacle as well.

    But South Africa don't usually do well in Asia and remember Sri Lanka could be in this group too....

    True, but SA drew 2-2 with India in ODIs last year (or was it early this year) when India were in red hot ODI form as well.

    I think this group gets qualifier 1 and the thread titles are around the wrong way. I would be backing Sri Lanka to get through this group with South Africa if they qualify ahead of the West Indies.
