    From memory that five wicket over he bowled had like four yorkers in it!
    Terrible footage, but it might've been all 5....

    Henry has never let his country down by breaking down in the middle of a test match where NZ only had 4 bowlers and no part timers or all rounders to pick up the slack. Bennet will never be forgiven for his sins.
    It's hardly a sin for any pace bowler to break down, one of those things that happens at times, just unfortunate.

    Henry is not a favourite, if he was he would actually be playing a lot more than he has in recent years. If anything he hasn't been given the chances he deserves either.
    He is a favourite in terms him been selected in a lot of squads, therefore at least it gives him opportunities to make the 11, just would've had others players ahead of him in squads over the last few years, he's bowled a lot of crap in the short form, especially at the death.

    Best case for Henry favourtism is when Wagner was dropped from the test team, Henry sucked in Eng and Aus before being dropped. There was no good reason to replace Wags with Henry. Then they brought in Doug Bracewell on the basis he could bat well to be an allrounder - he just seems to be the team favourite. The way he seems to continually resurface ahead of Bennett is astounding.

    But sadly Bennett is getting on a bit now. And Wags is 33 next month. I don't see him bowling the way he does in tests at 35. Just far too taxing on the body.

    I see potential in Scott K to take over from Wagner after next summer in the test team, as a 4 or 5 year bridge player, which opens a non-allrounder spin spot which Vet, Craig, Santner and Astle have made the common norm for quite some time.

    Matt Henry seems destined to be one of those guys that mastered domestic, esp juicy greenies in England, but didn't make the grade at intl. Mind you, when Jesse Ryder gets 10 fors in county and opens the bowling as he did for 3 years, you know they have some serious quality issues.
