Depends what Rachin is in the side for. He's probably not fighting Phillips for a spot. Phillips is a 4-5, Rachin is either an opener or a 6-7 who bowls.I think Phillips can feel really hard done by, especially with Rachin in the side. Which isn’t to say Rachin is not a player of immense potential. But Phillips has played really well this season, and IMO doesn’t deserve to be dropped.
I think he hit a century or two in the NZ A gamesDepends what Rachin is in the side for. He's probably not fighting Phillips for a spot. Phillips is a 4-5, Rachin is either an opener or a 6-7 who bowls.
And 390 runs at 39 in the Plunket Shield isn't enough for Phillips to be banging the door down. Three 50s, no hundreds.
Even if he had been 100 % fit all season, Ferguson wasn't going to go unless they picked 21 players.
Southee Wagner Boult Jamieson Ferguson.i disagree. he hasnt played much red ball because he plays white ball for nz. when he does play he dominates. he's our 5th best bowler at worst. until late 2019 where he was sold down the river at perth he had a remarkable bill of health.
the wc is 2 years away and the t20 wc is worthless compared to the wtc final. he should be on that plane unless he pulled out himself imo.
