    Assuming the regular eleven that played against the Windies were not available, I'd go

    Shaun Marsh
    Phil Jaques
    Michael Dighton
    David Hussey
    Adam Voges (c)
    Luke Pomersbach
    Luke Ronchi (wk)
    Ashley Noffke
    Aaron Heal
    Brett Geeves
    Ben Hilfenhaus

    Marcus North unlucky.

    Some of those players are in the top 30 though. I would take that squad however.
    5-0

    Good looking teams.
    I think deighton is a real smokey out of the 30.he really was the top one day batsmen last year,unlucky not to be in the 30.
    Its really hard to know where the players are at cullen gives the impression that the 30 are out as all 30 are out,but not all would feel the same.
    I would be happy we send a weaker squad get a chance to blood some youngsters.

    This is my 2nd XI squad out of the 30 preliminary players, i think every player who is new on the scene would find such a good opportunity too good to deny.

    Who opens in your first XI then?
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Nice side. Not at all comfortable with Ryder as captain though! Franklin maybe?

    By all accounts, Franklin's almost as much of an egomaniac as Ryder is, and he's not exactly the brightest bulb in the factory either. If he were available I'd go with van Wyk as a captain, as even though he's not played internationally, he's had plenty of experience captaining Canterbury for a couple of season's now.

    Very harsh. Jimmy at least has the good sense not to be a ****** and comes across as a nice guy in the media. Hasn't bitten back at all the **** he gets for his ODI bowling from the public either. McMillan, Parore would have fired a volley back by now and I suspect Ryder could do that too.
