The burning question stays incomplete just so you can ponder over it for a week

Vaughn Brown - for denying Richard Hadlee 10 wkts in an innings in Brisbane in 1985 - and also Stephen Boock and John Bracewell for putting on 124 for the 10th wicket in Sydney in the same series. Oh - and of course Brian McKechnie throwing his bat away after the underarm.

Fleming and Cris Crains...best allrounder NZ has produced ever

Bond. Shane Bond. I don't think I have enjoyed fast bowling as much ever since he retired. Pace, swing, accuracy. He was perhaps the only bowler that instilled fear amongst an Australian side that seemed unbeatable in the 2000s.

Fleming has the highest career runs for NZ, and he is the 41st in the world [Are you sure that's a good enough position to be immortalized?], Vetorri is the 17th highest wicket take ... bit closer than Fleming I suppose. Hadlee is 7th ever, and had been holding number 1 for a while during his time, and even after he retired till Kapil Dev dragged himself to that record. Hadlee had been up there and made the rest of the world talk about Kiwi cricket.

Glenn Turner, Richard Hadlee, Martin Crowe, Stephen Fleming for his good batting and brilliant captaincy. Perhaps Daniel Vettori, Jack Cowie, Shane Bond, Stewie Dempster and Martin Donnelly as well?
