First Class Debutant
For Brendon McCullum to start opening in test matches.......Yea,your thoughts ?
Sure you have a point,but wat im saying is that imo he is better than who we have tried.Mr Mxyzptlk said:I could never understand that statement. Unless your openers are averaging 0, I assure you he can. Ask Geraint Jones.
You forgot Pocock, Murray, Hartland, and Vance. The first three, in particular, were breathtaking in their ineptitude.cric_manic said:Sure you have a point,but wat im saying is that imo he is better than who we have tried.
how many openers have NZ tried who havent worked
Cumming,Marshall,Vincent,Sinclair,Horne,Bell,Nevin,Stead,Plus more,i think he can do a better job than eny of those players
yea How looks like a good player but it looks like they dont want to blood new players.Blaze said:Papps and How for me. McCullum should be opening in one dayers.
Yea iv always liked the look of PappsTim said:For tests I think it needs to be Papps, he's been scoring alot of runs over the last 8 months for 'A' teams, Academies etc.
How hasn't really pushed on, he'll be disappointed for sure but there's no doubt he's slipped off the radar a little, just when he really needed to hammer the final nail.
Not sure what the selectors have against Fulton, but they obviously think he's got flaws. I can't understand that when he averages almost double to that of the players they are currently selecting.
The selectors will be wanting to see some guys score runs consistently this season..I think they'll be looking out for How, Papps, Jesse Ryder & Fulton to step up.
He's not a GREAT player he is a very good player.And you can't replace Marshall after 1 bad series he was starting to look good in last few games of the SA seriesNatman20 said:I think Papps should be playing he is a great player and I have always thought that. I think that Vincent has been playing great lately but I just feel hes 'up' and 'down' all the time. I also think that Cumming is a reasonable player and I would love to see Fulton finally get a spot maybe replacing Marshall in the series against Sri Lanka or something just to try him out.
