Ben on...the rapid unravelling of New Zealand cricket

It seems to me that the defectors to ICL are getting increasingly brazen.

The first few people to sign up were retirees, such as Chris Harris and Chris Cairns, and current players not currently available, such as Hamish Marshall. Then Craig McMillan was careful to sever his ties with NZC before heading to India. Shane Bond wanted to leave his ties to NZC dangling a bit. Andre Adams just picked up and left without a by-your-leave, and Lou Vincent did the same while still under contract.

I predict that the next New Zealander to leave for India will be a Black Cap. They'll head off to India during a test match. And they'll kick Justin Vaughn's dog on the way to Auckland International.
