    Andre Adams
    Nathan Astle
    Shane Bond
    Stephen Fleming
    James Franklin
    Peter Fulton
    Mark Gillespie
    Chris Harris
    Paul Hitchcock
    Gareth Hopkins
    Jamie How

    Hamish Marshall
    Chris Martin
    Michael Mason
    Kyle Mills
    Brendon McCullum
    Nathan McCullum
    Peter McGlashan
    Craig McMillan
    Iain OBrien
    Jacob Oram
    Mark Orchard
    Jeetan Patel
    Mathew Sinclair
    Scott Styris
    Ross Taylor
    Daryl Tuffey
    Daniel Vettori
    Lou Vincent.

    Strangely they have selected Tuffey in their list who has only just made his comeback in One Day cricket at domestic level and is not in form. Interesting selection of back-up players such as Orchard, N McCullum etc.

    My Final 15:

    *Stephen Fleming
    Nathan Astle
    Ross Taylor
    Scott Styris
    Lou Vincent
    Jacob Oram
    Brendon McCullum
    Daniel Vettori
    Mark Gillespie
    Kyle Mills
    Shane Bond

    extras: Jeetan Patel, Craig McMillan, Michael Mason, Peter Fulton

    Who'd you have picked ahead of Tuffey?

    IMO that says far more about the absurdity of 30-man squads than any selections.

    If playing, is Tuffey seriously not one of the best 30 cricketers in New Zealand?

    Tuffey is not at the moment. He is no fit enough to play with an average of about 70 in 6 or 7 games he has played this season and expensive. He will be but not in time for the world cup. I would have picked Graeme Aldridge ahead of Tuffey. Anyway Tuffey wont make it near the 15

    Michael Papps will have to be wondering what he did to offend the selectors. I'd have certainly had him in there instead of either Hopkins or McGlashan, especially since he can be a backup wicket-keeper himself.
