    Grr, the selectors seriously need to stop their insistence on playing all the backups together in the warm-ups.
    Really a team should look to use them so the 1st XI gets used to the conditions and match time behind them.
    I don't mind Bond being rested, but it's embrassing losing to a domestic team who isn't even one of the top in their country and is devoid of their internationals.

    Baz also needs to ease his bowler rotation policy
    Giving Broom and Guptill a trundle shows the faith the team puts in Diamanti's bowling, making his continued selection even more bizarre.

    (For the first proper game) Ideally Broom would bat top 5, but the top 4 is basically locked in and Elliott is coming along OK @ 5.
    So Broom shouldn't bat lower than 6, with Oram slotting in @ 7.

    Hope they play our 1st XI next warm-up

    for me teams don't take warm ups seriously, it's just for the whole team to get some practice on the pitches where tournament is going to be played

    I thought it looked as though Diamanti injured himself. Got through something like 3.1 overs and then Broom finished off the rest of the over. No report of an injury yet though.

    I'm guessing we'll play our first XI in the warmup against India tomorrow.

    Oh yep, good thinking
    I would have thought that Elliott's bowling would be next in the pecking order though if they wanted to save the frontline bowler's overs.

    I'm struggling to see the point of Butler being in the team a.t.m., esp. since he is expensive with the ball and will probably bat at number 9 or 10.

    Replace him with Mills.

    McCullum
    Ryder
    Guptill
    Taylor
    Elliott
    Oram
    Broom
    Vettori
    Mills
    Tuffey/Patel
    Bond

    Just thinking that the order is a little top heavy, resembling Sri Lanka's. Knowing that Oram will inevitably fail, how do we have apart from Broom to hit sixes in the death overs? And Broom's rubbish anyway.
    Greatest Ever Test XI: JB Hobbs, L Hutton, DG Bradman (c), IVA Richards, BC Lara, GS Sobers, AC Gilchrist (wk), Imran Khan, RJ Hadlee, MD Marshall, SK Warne 12th man: M Muralitharan


    Favorite XI: WG Grace, VT Trumper, IVA Richards, DCS Compton, FMM Worrell (c), AC Gilchrist (wk), CL Cairns, SK Warne, FS Trueman, SE Bond, T Richardson 12th man: H Larwood

    If Broom manages to bring together some consistency then we should be okay. Oram is the weak link there, really appears to be struggling with the bat. His bowling has admittedly improved though.
    Direbirds FTW!

    He got 4 wickets against the Warriors and only bowled 2 overs vs India.
    I know he's been around the 5 RPO mark since his comeback, but he often takes crucial wickets.

    I hope you're just poking fun at those poking fun

    They better move Broom back to 6
