Ok I know day 5 was called off.
But Watling dropping elgar gave SA 100 runs, Latham scoring next to nothing yet again and dropping a sitter in the slips which would have had us into the middle order, 2 other poor catch attempts and terrible fielding and not bowling Southee with Santner doing nothing with the bat or ball again. We should have won it on day 4 half way through, a huge win DROPPED.
Imo the selector and the coach are hugely to blame.
So now along with Taylor injured, we have Boult injured and Guptil mis managed and out for another 6 weeks, Larsen imo needs to go in selecting.
Id like to try Watling as an opener and drop Santner who along with Latham has had too many chances and done sweet FA. Pick your best team and play them.
Thats the best 11 NZ has in bowling and fielding imo. We need Batsman who can bat and bowlers who can bowl, not 4 part timers.
