    Nah. Henry was excellent today. Took some tap at the end of SA's innings but at one point he was 9 off 5 overs.

    He'd probably go well, but there is no way NZ are going to change their side for the final.

    I like Mills but it does concern me if we bring him in to play the one game and it happens to be the final. I say stick with Henry.

    Tough to call. Both bowlers are probably suited to bowling early against Australia's aggresively minded batsmen. Mills arguably slightly better suited to bowling in the mid-late overs because of his greater slower-ball repertoire, but even then it's a toss-up.

    Henry bowled beautifully upfront and was unlucky to run into ABDV batting amazingly. Yes he's hittable off a length later on, but I'm backing him to take two or three wickets in his first spell against whoever we face in the final.

    I don't think Millsy will be much help. He's barely been sighted since Australian Idol 2003 and to be quite honest, after giving Paris Hilton the once over I doubt he'd have much interest in a dozen sweaty, hairy dudes wandering around naked in the MCG dressing room.

    Wait, did someone say a seam attack of Mills, Boult & Henry at the G?


    I'm 75% trolling & 25% serious.

    Trolling because it'll never happen, serious because it'd be a pretty good thing.

    I will be stoked if Southee goes for less than 6RPO.

    There's reverse in Australia, Southee at the death will be critical.

    I share your pessimism about Southee. Think Aust will target both him & our 5th bowling option & sit on Vettori & Boult (and treat Henry like an unknown quantity) . Like you, I hope I'm wrong about Timmeh.

    I would play Mills. He arguably understands ODI bowling better than any other seamer in the world. The only thing stopping him from being more successfully is that others are faster.
    1) Ross is Boss.
    2) See point 1.

    Leading the charge against nuances being used in posts.

    Overrated XI M Bracewell, Burns, Rahane, Don Voges, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaul
