    New Zealand Thread

    As its name suggests. Likely that some players will drop out if held in Pakistan.

    FFS. The only thing I dislike about the subcontinent is the security issues, real or imagined, getting the players nervous.

    Hopefully Marshall and O'Brien refuse offers. Don't want to see either near an ODI for a long time. O'Brien can be kept for tests though.

    We can cover Oram with Elliott/Ryder. Styris will be covered by Flynn or Fulton I'd imagine.

    I don't think Franklin will be back for this tournament. He has hardly even bowled anything in the emerging players tourno let alone domestic cricket. Highly unlikely that he'd be the same standard eg. Tuffey. They also say Fulton is way out of whack atm, i personally would like to see him play..

    My Squad (if oram and styris don't play):

    Jesse Ryder
    +Brendon McCullum
    Jamie How
    Ross Taylor
    Greg Hay
    Peter Fulton
    Grant Elliott
    Kyle Mills
    *Daniel Vettori
    Tim Southee
    Michael Mason

    reserves: J Patel, D Flynn, B Scott, M Gillespie

    Can we chuck Corey Anderson in there if he gets player of the tournament in emerging players? We need another backup all rounder to G elliott

    His batting is good but his bowling still needs work by the looks of it. He may be given a chance depending on how many players pull out though. It will be interesting.

    No.

    Too early. Big risk to take at this early stage of his development. He's not even a proven Canterbury First XI player yet. Ryder can back up Elliott.

    NZ Players Association says they don't support the tour, surprise surprise. Will be interesting to see how this develops.

    I doubt NZ will go. But If they do it will be full of newbies I think.

    Corey Anderson is 17 aye? Big promise, but too young. Still if all the top guys pull out, there's really nothing to lose... right?

    Poor choice of words there.

    Southee said he's "unsure" whether he'd go to Pakistan.

    I guess that proves that his place in the ODI side is as assured as a lot of the seniors in the team.

    When you average less than Shane Bond with the ball and you've had great influence in ODI victories I imagine you'd be pretty popular with the selectors.

    Unless Ric Charlesworth is around, of course.

    New Zealand's chances for winning this tournament are reading at 1000 mili-dooms.
    Direbirds FTW!
