The Kiwi squad

McIntosh and Guptill open. No problems there. Flynn and Taylor pick themselves. Ryder is injured and picking Peter Fulton is a backward step. Im afraid he’s been given a chance too many and he has failed to capitalise. Im sure there’s someone else in those islands who’d do better than Fulton.

I’m a big fan of Grant Elliot and he’s going to be an asset to the national team in the coming years. He is most capable of taking that No. 6 spot after Oram’s retirement and ahead of James Franklin.The fast bowling has been strengthened by Bond’s return ( James won’t be missed) and Elliot is surely going to produce beter test output than what Jakes was producing. McCullum, Bond and Vettori are international class.

I can’t wait to watch a test spell from Bond. He along with Lee and Steyn offer an amazing variety to fans of fast bowling.
There’s a problem in the fact that there’s no back up batsman. Not even one. Chris Martin should be getting the nod ahead of Ian O Brien and Jeetan Patel and O Brien should be carrying the drinks.

Daryl Tuffey makes a return and he would be under severe pressure from Mills when the latter is fit. O Brien has been performing decently as well and Tuffey needs wickets to keep his place.

Im putting  all my money on Bond. He’s going to be the star of the series. And NZ are going to win.

They just need some big scores from Taylor, Guptill and Flynn. GO BLACK CAPS!

Don’t forget, this series is ‘hosted by Pakistan’!!
