    Really think being 160-odd for 6 and losing Vettori at that stage would've killed us.

    Fulton or Styris IMO.

    Guppy, Baz, Taylor, Elliott are all fine. Broom will get a chance at 5 vs. England it looks like.
    Direbirds FTW!

    I treat it as mild amusement whenever they trot out the old cliches. Its not worth getting worked up over, I just set up camp on here.

    Think 100 is a bit overkill.

    Almost certainly 70 though.

    Scarily accurate.

    Wouldn't mind Fulton or Styris truth be told, but get the feeling the selectors want to move-on from Styris

    Play your best player for the moment. Fulton is a pile of pies.

    Gotta be Styris IMO. Bring him in and bat him at 3.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    I think this is the first time I've actually commented on this, but for a while now I've been concerned with the way Mills "appeals". Basically when he thinks it's out (and he seems to be a terrible judge) he goes charging down the pitch celebrating and doesn't even turn to the umpire. Poor form.
