Well if he wants to...better than being forced to. And makes the whole opening and middle order congestion problem a little bit easier. Whether or not he can handle it, we'd have to wait and see.I know right. Was on the news. From a radio live phone interview with the big man himself.
Edit - when he did he say he wanted to go down the order?
Cricket: Watling to stay put, McCullum set for change - Sport - NZ Herald NewsFrom what I've heard, a lot of what he was talking about was Brendon being forced to be overly defensive, so it may not necessarily be a move down the order but a change in batting mindset that Hesson is going for.
Yeah, that's fair. I probably was a bit rash with my reaction to Vaughan's comments.Also, I know it's unusual for NZ fans to seemingly have an entire competent seam attack but you're getting a bit ahead of yourselves to say you've got the edge over England. I mean, c'mon.
good team tbhLooks as though they aren't going to chop Guptill just yet. Why not send him home from the ODIs now so he can play some FC cricket?
Does this mean we could see
1. J Ryder
2. M Guptill
3. K Williamson
4. R Taylor/B McCullum
5. B McCullum/R Taylor
6. D Brownlie
7. BJ Watling+
8. D Vettori
9. D Bracewell
10. T Southee
Although Guptill has been in terrible form, both he and Williamson show a huge desire in representing New Zealand, so I hope they both remain in the team.
This would be my lineup
1) Peter Fulton - he was supposed to open vs South Africa, so he wins the position by default. I wouldn't mind Franklin opening to be honest, when he plays straight he can look good, and he would be a left hander to try and unsettle the bowlers lines. His height should enable him to get forward and avoid LBWs. Only negative for Franklin is he hasn't opened
7) Jesse Ryder - Jesse currently is looking to bash everything, so is probably a better bet to bat with the tail...he is there for a good time, and not a long time. If he however bats how he did a few seasons back, he would bat at 4 for me with everyone else sliding down
All very novel ideas.
3:15 in, he'd like to open in ODIs and T20 is all he says, is it not.
