    If your 1st-string team doesn't go to the Ch Trophy, who would you replace them with?

    A slightly darker take on the usual "what's your 2nd XI". Given that, from what I've heard, Ryder and Franklin aren't gonna be selected, I'd imagine it'd be something like this for New Zealand.

    Ryder
    Guptill
    Sinclair
    Broom
    Hay
    Nichol
    Van Wyk
    Hiini
    Franklin
    Scott
    O'Brien

    We'd be able to post a slightly more competitive looking unit if it weren't for the ICL stealing all of our second (and in some place first) string players.

    Now that is just disgusting censorship.

    OK, how about we call it "If your team is blown up in a non-terrorism related plane crash on the way to Pakistan, who would you replace them with?".

    Australia's team would still be immensely strong.

    This thread is actually awesome IMO, purely because Sinclair was selected.

    Whats wrong with the thread? Seeing as its likely there's gonna be lots of players pulling out, isn't it predictable, not to mention logical, for a member of a cricket forum to ask who would you send instead? In the first post he didn't say "If your team gets blown up by evil Muslims..." etc etc. He said a darker take o nthe 2nd XI, which is odd, but I don't see the word "bomb" in that post.

    However from the looks of it, judging by Bahnz later comments somebody has done some editing on his posts but for now I'd give him the benefit of the doubt.

    Knowing Bahnz as a slightly morbid person (never seen him positive about anything, ever ) that title doesn't surprise me.

    Actualy laughed at that title tbh, but I'm not really taking the bomb thing in Pakistan seriously. Doubt he meant it maliciously, but on a forum such as this yeah thats an inappropriate title. Oh well, its edited now.

    That side would get absolutely pumped. Paine in for Hartley imo, despite not being that good an OD player Hartley is just crap all-round.

    Top order looks alright, rest is iffy though.

    I'll base mine on the gorunds that only the first XI has pulled out, but squad members from the 15 and 30 still want to go.

    First XI (for reference)

    How
    McCullum
    Taylor
    Fulton
    Flynn
    Oram
    Elliott
    Vettori
    Mills
    Southee
    Gillespie

    2nd XI

    Jesse Ryder (c)
    Martin Guptill
    Bradley Watling
    Greg Hay
    Neil Broom
    Rob Nicol
    Kruger Van Wyk (w)
    James Franklin
    Brandon Hiini
    Michael Mason
    Brent Arnel

    Bradley Scott
    Chris Martin
    Matthew Sinclair
    Aaron Redmond

    Was tempted to give Van Wyk captaincy but he hasn't played any international cricket so it'd be unfair.
