Kiwi's will get dominated in the tests, Twenty20's you never know but we might have a chance. The ODI Series is pretty average, only play 2 games if you don't make the final. We've beaten both of those teams in the past, just not consistently. Will be good to see Bondage bowl, if he doesn't break down before the series.

Around what time will the games be being played in New Zealand? I hope I get to catch a few games.

The current Sri Lanka vs Pakistan games are starting around 4:30pm NZ time so its a fairly good time for viewers over here they don't seem to play many night games over there.

Yeah it looks as though we should be able to catch most of the game over here, they should finish around 11-12 I think, so that's to bad.

Why would they give Hopkins a contract but not even pick him for the test matches, I find that really odd. I can't see Young being any good with the bat though. I've seen a lot of his keeping over the years and he is pretty good, but his batting is really bad.

Also why wasn't Franklin included in the test team, he would be a far better option then Grant Elliott. Man our selcetors can be really bad sometimes. Why play Franklin against the Windies when he isn't fit, and then drop him when he starts to come good?

The Grant Elliott selection isn't that bad. Over the last 5-6 months his batting has really improved, I don't think our selectors would see him of much as a bowling threat. I'm just surprised they have droped Franklin for Oram basically, who has done nothing since last year.

Franklin was droped because he didn't perform. Did anyone see Tendulkar rough him over, we are going to Sri Lanka and we don't need guys that can't even play Tendulkar going over. I don't think his bowling would of been that great over there either.
