Colin de Grandhomme is now in NZ test squad!

Post by CrimsonAvenger » Thu Nov 10, 2016 3:04 am

As Gary Ballance slides down fast from the England radar, Colin de Grandhomme suddenly finds himself in the NZ test squad to face Pakistan. He had last turned out for NZ in 2012, so was probably close to a Zim re-qualification if our guys had approached him?

He's been in NZ for years. No way he would have been interested.

Not to mention me castigating ZIMDOGGY for claiming no one had backed getting Diplock in the team and telling him that he needed to read posts other than his own.
