Partnership records | One-Day Internationals | Cricinfo Statsguru | ESPN CricinfoI also see that Williamson-Taylor robbed me of another 100 partnership. 2nd game in a row its fallen in the 90s.

If Amla/AB wasn't such a thing, I'd say they were the best batting partnership in the world right now.
Can hardly blame McMillan for our batting line up being a complete bunch of numpties. Select better players!This is all true but Santner flat out can't bat. It wouldn't work. As you say he can't score quick enough.
Neesham needs to bat 5 and they can pad around him. Unfortunately our middle order just hasn't got better at all, spectacular job Craig McMillan is doing as batting coach.
Yeah it's completely crazy. 1 of Neesham or Anderson wouldn't really disgrace us with them sporadically coming off with a good aggressive innings, but when 4 of the top 7 are Ronchi, Broom, Anderson and Neesham, it's just spud city.The lack of depth in NZ's batting is epic. Such disparity between KW, Guptill, Taylor and the rest.
Well obviously, Guptill is a class act but besides him this team is full of scrubs (Ronchi, Broom and Anderson) or a plodder in Ross Taylor who still plays ODI cricket like it's the year 2000.Always go back and forth on who I prefer between Root and Williamson.... both such class acts. Do think Williamson carries his team more though.
Broom and Hesson are really good mates, they've been close for a long time so that explains his continued inclusion. Ronchi well, this is a guy who has literally averaged 12 for two and a half years, if he isn't going to be dropped for being that inept and instead promoted up the order I don't think we'll ever get rid of him.as a Kent fan, who rates Latham quite highly, can anyone from NZ give a reasonable answer to why Broom and Ronchi are both picked ahead of him, despite being so mediocre with the bat? Is it Ronchi's keeping is supposedly so much better which justifies picking someone who averages 24 to open?
