First Test: Thursday the 18th at the Gabba
The Australians have delayed naming their squad and Stephen Flemming has delayed his arrival in Sydney due to illness.
Australian squad has been anounced, was supposed to be named yesterday
Australia (from): Ricky Ponting (Capt), Adam Gilchrist (Wkt), Matthew Hayden, Justin Langer, Damien Martyn, Darren Lehmann, Michael Clarke, Shane Warne, Jason Gillespie, Michael Kasprowicz, Glenn McGrath, Brett Lee.
where's NZ's squad
I heard Harris, Cairns and Mcmillan arent in
WHY IS THIS???
IS IT UNDERSTRENGHTED???
Katich got dropped.. bummer. Good to see Warney's back.
Cairns has retired from Test cricket.
Harry is a ODI specialist.
Macca is for some weird reason seen as a ODI specialist. (although he averages under 30 in ODI's and over 40 in tests. )
Pretty much because McMillian has been CRAP as of late, his average at the start of his career was in the mid forties and has been going downhill ever since.........
NZL are in for a hard time over there. Not having Bond on those pitches leaves our new ball attack lacking any teeth what-so-ever.
God I miss Bond..........
Yeah, who doesn't... we got 2 good years out of him, damn was he good!
World cup 2003, he took 6-23 against Aus... but guess what, apart from him and flem, the rest of the team played ****! haha what a suprise. Aus were 7-80 and it was looking good for us... until bichel and bevan took it away from us, they made about 210 that day to NZ's 150 odd
It was a great game.
it woulda bn neta if we won!
I know what your trying to say, but take a few more seconds next time lol
I personally cant see us winning or even come close too drawing any of the tests
Hopefully the Rumours about Bond and the ODI's are true
Here ya go guys the NZ squad
NZ Squad to play Australia
New Zealand squad: Mark Richardson, Mathew Sinclair, Stephen Fleming (capt), Scott Styris, Nathan Astle, Hamish Marshall, Jacob Oram, Brendan McCullum (wk), Daniel Vettori, James Franklin , Kyle Mills , Paul Wiseman, Ian Butler, Chris Martin.
hopefully matt sinclair can use his magic powers in the first test, he doesn't even have to carry his bat! all mind work
The force is strong in that one
Last time I checked the New South Wales Blues seemed to be giving the New Zealanders a hell of alot of trouble.
End of Day 2
We have a crap bowling lineup too, our attack is nothing without Bond
You usually lift for us. Hopefully that will be the case this time as well.
We are starting to see the real Hamish Marshall now,the Hamish Marshall that is average in domestic cricket. He will get found out big time in Australia
Lou Vincent would of been a better choice, his back foot style is more suited to the fast bouncy tracks in australia, he proved that last tour in Aus
Good to see Mathew Sinclair in form, hopefully he kicks on and becomes a world class batsmen
And surely Craig McMillans internatinal career is over
Separate names with a comma.
