Any good stories you can tell us while on tour? Team mates muckin around or anything like that?
Have you ever thought about playing IPL? What do you think you need to do so you can get back into the test team?
Thanks heaps, mate for answering all these questions. All the best in the rest of your career.
Whats you view matt of the 20/20 comp with s africa,nz and aust sides 2010/11 southern cross competition i think forget its name.
Are you keen to play i think their will be 2 kiwi sides in it.
Mat, your a legend. You average more than WG Grace in FC and Test cricket. Anyway, do you still have international aspirations or are you looking to wind things up after your benefit season?
We've seen 1001 different Test opening combinations for New Zealand in recent times. Every time you look to be finding a viable partner for the established opener, the established opener drops off in his performances and finds himself dropped to start the vicious cycle all over again with the "viable partner" assuming the "established opener" role, etc etc.
Who do you think should be opening the batting for New Zealand in Test cricket?

Matt, whaddya think about Mitchell McClennaghan?
Everyone on the forum knows I think he's....not so good, but his name has been bandied around as a possible on both here and other NZ media. His record now is obviosuly poor and he and Sherlock between them must have given you a few run rate headaches, but obviously you must see something there in the guy. He has good pace, bounce etc. I'd be interested to know your thoughts on his development, whether he's worth picking now for the Black Caps and what he could end up like? Cheers.
On the last tour of South Africa (I think it was the last tour anyway) you played in the ODI series. I remember one of the game you held our batting together and then at the death got nailed in the head by an Ntini bouncer. You then proceeded to charge down the pitch and smash him for 4 and then 6 (I think..memory a little fuzzy here). I thought it took some quite massive balls to charge down the pitch after being smashed in the head on a fairly quick deck against a quality bowler, what was going through your head? What prompted you to charge down the pitch? Anger?
It was gold anyway. Good luck to you and CD for the upcoming season.
What do you think you should do to get back into the national side?
If you were granted an opportunity to join the IPL, which team do you opt to join?
What do you think about Jesse Ryder?
