International 12th Man
Bond, coz I am biased.

Accurate in-swingers at 150 clicks that can either hit the top of the off stump or the batter's nuts. Nothing gets more scarier than that.

International Coach
Imo best since Hadlee (not much between them):

Bond
Wagner
Southee
Boult
Jamieson
Cairns

I expect Jamieson to finish at the top of this list. Vettori is a very hard one to rate amongst NZ bowlers.

Bond was better.

But for longevity criteria my cut off point is 5 K runs and 200 wickets minimum others may differ on this but i struggle to rightly rate anyone below these numbers

At their best I'd go for Bond but as we all know he just couldn't keep fit so for longevity it has to be Southee

Fair enough - It is clear that Stephen Fleming was a better batsman than Graeme Pollock, and Chris Martin was a better bowler than Alan Davidson.
