This series gonn' be ossum. Especially if we find a way to score runs. And it doesn't rain.

Will be less awesome if follows the home/away pattern vs South Africa

Within the week I'd say. Doubt there's any pressure on Mitch to play the final on Sunday, did say he was "not far away at all" a week ago.

Littlejohn's really the last one likely to say 'your numbers in this discipline were poor but you were injured and not yourself, I'll give you the scholarship anyway' tbh.

I think this is closest to the best ODI team we can put together. Still not sure about How. So while we're speculating, how about they say to Jimmeh "you have one last chance, you open in the IPL, open for us. Just smash it bro".

Guptill
Franklin
Williamson
Taylor
Elliot
McCullum
Watling
Vettori
Southee
Mills
McClenaghan

Then your back ups are

Neesham
Henry
NcCullum (will he really not be in the team? Really?)
And batting back up - How/Ronchi/Papps/Munro/Latham/Anderson/Rutherford/Fulton - Whoever. Probably an opener would be best as that is the area where we look super vulnerable. Is it wrong to suggest I think Kane would be a good ODI opener?
