Drifting Back

I'm going away for a few days over Easter and will be spending most of my time in a household without Sky, so I won't see as much of the Napier Test as I'd like, but, with the teams gearing up for the series decider, a few interesting things have been happening.

With Kyle Mills out it seems almost certain that Tim Southee will make his debut at the age of nineteen. I haven't seen much of Southee, but, on thinking about the game, I've found my mind drifting back eleven years to the time New Zealand gave a debut against England at Wellington to an eighteen year-old called Daniel Vettori.

He hasn't had a bad career; if Southee shapes up half as well he will have done alright.
