Am I allowed to argue the NZ classifications ;-)? For example, Williamson and McCullum are much more of an all-rounder than Franklin. But I assume you just wanted three all-rounders, so...

B.McCullum
N.McCullum
Taylor

Sangakkara
Dilshan - TRUMP
Herath

You mean Kane Williamson and Nathan McCullum? I would have thought the former was more a batsman who bowls off-spin occasionally while Nathan is more a bowler who can bat a bit....not sure if even cricinfo site classifies them as all-rounders...that way I should put Brendon McCullum as an allrounder too!

I didnt really want to have just 3 all-rounders. but looks like it did turn out that way for this round smile

OK, for next ODIs involving the Kiwis, I will put Williamson and McCullum in the all-rounders list smile

McCullum is definitely an all-rounder, Kane probably not, but more so than Franklin was my point, he can't bowl to save his life! Not that important however, feel free to make a decision without my judgement :-)

First ODI delayed by rain, but any tips lodged from here on, will not count for the first match. You will still score for the remaining 4 matches....

Those who lodged tips....Please DO NOT Edit your tips anymore...I have already noted down your teams...

12 people lodged tips so far! A New RECORD for World Cricket comp smile Hope everybody is still there at end of March smile
