what on earth is Timmy Southee doing batting ahead of Henry?
Matt Henry is light years better with the bat in hand.
talk about pecking order...

Yeah four drops on the first day and I can recall three today - two off Southee in Rabada's over and Henry dropped at third man. Was there an eighth earlier today?

Whatever spinners average at Hagley, Stuurman averages more.
Olivier only 29 but looks washed.


People very reactionary on southees batting as usual. If ever there was a time for the bowlers to slog, it's now. He didn't come off and Henry (who bats with the same attitude) has. Happens guys chill out.


International 12th Man
Personally have never seen Stuurman bowl for an extended period of time,but surely your premier spin bowler is a better pick than your 6th choice seamer? SA won that series against India but even then it was despite their selections,not because of it.
