He would have had Voges out without a no ball (no offence Bracewell you are a great bowler). And NZ would have had a chance in the first test, this is assume nothing funny going on.
The guy is on fire for us this summer so we just leave him out. Auckland housing bubble level of common sense ie lets do nothing and wait to see if we can get voted in again and then do, nothing.
Boulta needs a boulta, best bowler ODIs or not. Someone needs a serious word with our bowlers about test bowling. Anyone seen Shane Bond?
Now in saying all that, our batting lost the test. It was so rubbish, asside from the second innings dig not Nicholls and lower order it was disgraceful. Guptil was ok but was still batting half way between ODI mode, just bat ODI mode Guptil, str8 lofted drives for 130m like other human can. Mccullum was rubbish. Williamson, well best in the worst in the world in the blink of an eye, furious at him because I love his batting so much. What are we doing with spinners, craig, I kind can understand because he can bat, but so can HENRY.
All I can say is good luck for the toss Big McC, win won please, NZ loves you and having taking us from crap to 2nd best in ODIs and bodering on third best in tests. I dont think we were ever that good even in Hadlees days. Will miss him and will probably shed a man tear on his final innings.
Williamson should not be captain, mark my words, Lara effect, same thing happened to his batting (still the most entertaining of the modern era imo though, although its not getting to hard to call with the last lot of retirees coming through).
