Obviously we should have an advantage in the spin department with Vettori, as well as Patel for back up or possibly even partnering Vettori if conditions suit spin.
Mark Gillespie recently made a comeback for an NZ-B team against England U-19s. Ryder made his comeback as a pure batsman (batted with a runner, didn't field, didn't bowl) in the same game.
