New Zealand seamer Tim Southee isn't the best choice for the post of vice-captain of the team, writes Dylan Cleaver in the New Zealand Herald. Batsman Kane Williamon, and even Ross Taylor, seem to be better choices, Cleaver says, while pointing out why Southee's candidacy might provide "the ammunition for a full-blown, grassy knoll-type conspiracy".
McCullum is managed by Stephen Fleming. Tim Southee is managed by ... Stephen Fleming. There was already misguided flak flying around about Fleming being the New Zealand Cricket Players' Association representative on the panel that appointed Mike Hesson as coach; Southee as v-c provides the ammunition for a full-blown, grassy knoll-type conspiracy.
The phrase "not a good look" is too often trotted out but in this case you could get away with it. Already red flags will be running up the pole at New Zealand Cricket.
