An outside assessment

Here are some interesting pieces, Cricinfo editorial assistant Sriram Veera ran his eye over the New Zealand team in Baroda and posted his impressions. He certainly liked what he saw of Mark Gillespie. He wasn't nearly as impressed with Shane Bond's first outing for a while and did some nice spotting with regards to the batsmen. Hamish Marshall looks vulnerable outside off he reckoned, and Scott Styris doesn't appear fit. Meanwhile Jacob Oram struggled with his cut shot against the spinners and Brendon McCullum looked all at sea on a turning wicket.

I'm going to get some T-shirts printed - "I saw Shane Bond play" - on the rare days he actually does, I'd make a fortune.
