And he's a right hander when we have a lot of lefties in the squad/IPL (Latham, Chapman, Neesham, Ravindra, Conway, Bracewell, Santner).You guys don't think it was his bowling average of 152 in this year's Super Smash that got him the gig?
I'm only being facetious...but yeah, I don't think there's a lot of utility in a 31-year-old bits and pieces-ish all-rounder like McConchie. But hey, he fits the Stead mould of being over 30 and ideally from Christchurch.
I expect we still would've been thrashed, but
If Foxcroft had been eligible for NZ, Seifert wasn't becoming a father (big congrats to him btw), and Clarkson had been picked that would be a far more exciting batting lineup to follow.
I hope at least Chapman kicks on from this.
