    *Unofficial* New Zealand Black Caps Thread

    You know what would be a great place for an A tour? South Africa. Even just a tour with 2 FC & 3 OD matches would be brilliant. I would probably take a slightly youth-oriented squad there, for two reasons: From the sounds of it, NZ could be touring SA in the 2027-9 WTC. The 4-day matches would...

    2023–24 NZ women's summer

    These would've been my "Armchair Squads": North: Rebecca Burns, Prue Catton, Marama Downes, Caitlin Gurrey, Bree Illing, Xara Jetly, Leigh Kasperek (c), Jess McFadyen (wk), Thamsyn Newton, Josie Penfold, Georgia Plimmer, Saachi Shahri, Jess Watkin South: Kate Anderson, Sarah Asmussen, Emma...

    2023–24 NZ women's summer

    I had a look during lunch, & have been thinking about it during the afternoon. Some of the selections were outright clangers. How in the world did Gaze get picked in a T20 series over McFadyen &/or Dodd? Neither covered themselves in glory this T20 season, but both should be there ahead of...

    Where the hell are these North vs South squads? The series starts tomorrow, for crying out loud. Hopefully the players know, at least.

    *Official* Australia tour of New Zealand Feb-Mar 2024

    At this point, I'd rather Rachin open. At least he's an opener by trade. At least for the first Test, he'll be in a familiar environment at the Basin.

    *Official* Australia tour of New Zealand Feb-Mar 2024

    He slaughtered them, especially in Australia. Over there, he averaged just under 18. On top of that, he's the current top wicket taker in PS. I'm not a fan of him getting called up, but at least Wells was honest about why. I maintain that he robbed Duffy of a debut against England last year...

    2023–24 NZ women's summer

    UP THE SPARKIES! What a season for Emma Black. If she doesn't get in the A squad... A really good season for Inglis as well. If WFs HQ had their brains working, she'd be fighting Dodd to be 2nd choice keeper after McFadyen. I fully expect the North vs South squads to be revealed in the...

    No. I'd rather Rachin in that situation - at least that's his background.

    *Official* Australia tour of New Zealand Feb-Mar 2024

    Especially in the Tests, because they come here so little, they deserve it. The Sandpaper stuff is so overdone it's boring. How about something different, like "Sunrisers replaced you with Kane" (even though this one is outdated), "get back to TikTok" or "Go back to your OLED TV" or something...

    *Official* Australia tour of New Zealand Feb-Mar 2024

    So what do we think of this Chappell-Hadlee revamp? Chappell-Hadlee to become white-ball trophy Personally, I'm not a big fan, but I understand why they're doing it, with no ODI series in sight, CH risks not being contested again. I thought it would've been nice to make another trophy to go...

    NZ domestic season 2023/24

    So it's Otago vs Auckland in Dunedin on Wednesday, & the winner goes to Christchurch on Saturday. Hmm.

    *Official* Australia tour of New Zealand Feb-Mar 2024

    Yeah, I'm not a fan of Kuggeleijn being selected. I saw it coming the moment KJ got injured. Wells mentioned his stuff for NZ A where he completely wrecked them - combine that with being the top wicket taker of PS (which I still don't understand, considering he couldn't buy a wicket for at...

    *Official* Australia tour of New Zealand Feb-Mar 2024

    With a bit of work (his economy isn't great, & needs work), I think he could debut in 2 years or less. That 4-fer he got vs India A at Chinnaswamy after only one FC season was eyebrow-raising. I definitely could see him tour Aus in 2026-7.

    NZ domestic season 2023/24

    From memory he was on that A tour to India in 2022, where he took 4-fer at Chinnaswamy in one of the FC games & took 3w during the One-Dayers in Chennai.

    *Official* Australia tour of New Zealand Feb-Mar 2024

    Like a spinning Zak Foulkes? I could see that for some reason. Considering they had him open in that Pakistan T20, he probably won't be with the tail. This is what is frustrating: he doesn't belong there, in all honesty, but just because he's good in the other formats he's being crowbarred...

    *Official* Australia tour of New Zealand Feb-Mar 2024

    I'll be honest. I have no idea why Rachin is in the squad. There's nothing in his record that suggests he should be in a frontline T20 team. I don't even know where he'd fit in. The list of guys I'd pick over him is quite long: Dean Foxcroft, Cole McConchie, Dane Cleaver, Nick Kelly, Tom Latham...

    I might be slightly off. The only way I see Bates, Devine or Tahuhu playing a Test is if England or Australia organise a game against a World XI within the next 2-3 years.
