Nasser hasn't seen Santner bat much before, I gather?

Dude can hit a cricket ball - his bat speed is insane.

Hussein with the Hey Theo moment there bagging Santner and the NZ middle to lower order saying they would be the difference in the series as they did not look like they were capable of winning a game for NZ.

Nice one. Must be feeling a tit but to his credit he hasn't gone quiet.

He's channeling Chris Harris. Look for all the world like you've never held a bat for your first 20 deliveries, the bring it home with some ridiculous shots when all seems lost.

Good times. :P

Ungamely is an interesting word. I assume it means non-sporting. Perhaps you were thinking of ungainly. :lol:

Has Colin de Grandhomme ever delivered under pressure?
Nicholls needs more contributions too. At the moment it seems you can immediately write those two off when the innings needs rescuing.

Colin de Grandhomme has played the innings of his life to help New Zealand secure a fourth straight victory over Pakistan as the home side got home with five wickets to spare.

With New Zealand in trouble, de Grandhomme smashed a half-century off just 25 balls to bat his side into a winning position. Alongside Henry Nicholls; the pair saw New Zealand home, notching up a match-winning partnership.

Nicholls himself also went past fifty in his most important innings yet, staying at the crease under immense pressure following the dismissal of his captain. After the game, Nicholls said his whole mindset was to build partnerships with the batsmen joining him.

Yes, well, apart from that, what has de Grandhomme ever done for the BCs?

He took 6/41 on test debut, and scored the fastest ever maiden test hundred. He also scored 74* in an ODI against Pakistan as recently as mid-January, after he returned from Zimbabwe following the death of his father. But apart from that, nothing much.

Agreed. Corey Anderson can also be accused of this imo. Seems to go missing under pressure and against the big teams. Having said that, I would stick with both Colin and Corey when he gets back, and hope that they eventually come right. I say this simply because they provide the power hitting that is needed in the middle/lower order. When chasing 300+ scores, big hitting is needed to chase those totals down.

Munro averages over 50 in first class cricket, so hopefully they try and build him into a test player. He's 30 though, not sure what the hold up is.

Surely after his form this summer he should get a look in. He's already taken McCullum's role at the top of the order, so no reason he couldn't take his #5 spot in tests too.

Although having said that, Nicholls' test form has been steadily improving recently (though still not where it needs to be), and the selectors have shown they're reluctant to drop him. I imagine his 100 against SA last year + 67 in the recent WI series will have bought him some leeway for now.

Can't really see a lineup of:

5. Munro
6. de Grandhomme

either. And given de Grandhomme has 2 50s and a 100 in his last 4 innings, he's not getting dropped in a hurry.

nope.
He came in with 110 to get with 15 overs to go and 5 wickets in hand. Chasing that successfully should be expected at least 50% of the time.
It doesn't do enough to make up for all the non contributions

How many of the tri series games did we lose because our late middle order folded like a house of cards?
