Opening batsman Martin Guptill has been left out of New Zealands squad for the upcoming two-Test series against Pakistan. Deion Sanders Braves Jersey . Uncapped Auckland batsman Jeet Raval and allrounder Colin de Grandhomme have been picked, while allrounder Todd Astle, who played his only Test in November 2012, has been recalled.Raval, who was in the squad for New Zealands Test tours of Zimbabwe and South Africa earlier this year, is set to take Guptills place at the top of the order. The 28-year-old left-handed batsman averaged 55.71 in last seasons Plunket Shield and in three matches this season has scored 244 runs at an average of 40.66.Guptills form in Tests this year has been a worry for the side. In nine matches, the batsman scored 393 runs at an average of 24.56 with two fifties, struggling for runs in the home series against Australia and on the tours of South Africa and India. Four other players who were part of the India tour - Doug Bracewell, Jeetan Patel, Luke Ronchi and Ish Sodhi - missed out. Among the excluded players who toured India, Ronchi had the best performance, ending as the highest run-getter for New Zealand with 200 runs in six Test innings. Patel and Sodhi picked up six and three wickets respectively, while Bracewell did not get a game.Jeet has been in the picture for a while now and he benefitted from spending time in the environment during the tour of Africa, New Zealand selector Gavin Larsen said. His form in recent seasons has been excellent and the opportunity for Jeet to begin his international career in familiar conditions will be important.Luke, Martin, Doug miss out this series, but we know that they and the others who miss out will continue to work hard on their game and get the chance to continue staking a claim in the domestic competition.Astle and de Grandhomme were rewarded for their consistent performances in domestic cricket, with Astles legspin set to cover for the absence of allrounder Mitchell Santner, who fractured his wrist recently. Astle is the only specialist spinner in the squad.Astle has taken 116 wickets in the last three Plunket Shield seasons, and 14 in this edition of the tournament. He has also contributed with the bat for Canterbury, scoring 267 runs, including a career-best 195 against Northern Districts in the first round.De Grandhomme, who has played an ODI and four T20Is for New Zealand, has been picked as an all-round option. He has scored 216 runs in three Plunket Shield matches so far, including one century, and has taken five wickets for Auckland as a seamer. The century, an unbeaten 144, came in tight two-wicket win against Otago, in a run chase of 373.Todds been incredibly consistent at the domestic level, having been one of the top four wicket-takers in the Plunket Shield for the past threes seasons, Larsen said. His bowling has continued to improve and hes also shown impressive form with the bat, so Todd provides a similar skill set to Mitchell Santner in his absence.Since Colin returned from injury last season, hes made a number of key contributions with bat and ball. Hes made an impressive start to the current Plunket Shield season and he provides us with another strong allrounder option.Six players were not considered due to injury: Santner, Mark Craig, Adam Milne, Mitchell McClenaghan, Colin Munro and George Worker. Corey Anderson, too, was not considered, as he continues to work on building up his bowling workload, after recovering from a back injury. Anderson had been picked as a specialist batsman in the ODI series against India, but bowled four overs in the fifth match.The first Test will be played in Christchurch from November 17, while the second Test starts from November 25. Astle and de Grandhomme have been withdrawn from the New Zealand A squad for the tour match against the Pakistanis, with Kyle Jamieson and Luke Woodcock taking their place.New Zealand squad Kane Williamson (capt), Todd Astle, Trent Boult, Colin de Grandhomme, Matt Henry, Tom Latham, Henry Nicholls, Jimmy Neesham, Jeet Raval, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, Neil Wagner, BJ Watling Freddie Freeman Jersey . LOUIS -- Lance Lynn was one of the more enthusiastic participants as the St. Deion Sanders Jersey . How great will be revealed in the next couple of days at the board of governors meeting in Pebble Beach, Calif. http://www.baseballbravesproshop.com/hank-aaron-braves-jersey/ . Louis. To which I would say two things: 1. Where there is smoke, there is or perhaps has been a little fire. Or, in other words, the two teams would appear to have at least spoken. And spoken is defined as one calling the other to inquire, no more, no less.The Premier League is heading back north of the border for night seven in Glasgow and Wayne Mardle has made his predictions. Premier League leader Michael van Gerwen will take on second-placed Phil Taylor, while defending champion Gary Anderson has been handed a double-header at The SSE Hydro, live on Sky Sports.But who does Mardle think will be the winners and losers? Gary Anderson v Adrian Lewis Gary Anderson defeated Adrian Lewis in this years World Championship final This is a rematch of the PDC World Championship final and Gary got the better of Adrian on that occasion, but I just dont know what to make of Gary. Some days he looks like the world champ he is and other days he just doesnt seem at the races. Last week, he was superb against Michael Smith, but so was Adrian Lewis in his win over Peter Wright. I do think it could be a tough night for Gary Anderson. He was so nervous in Aberdeen and the reception he got was incredible. But Ive got a feeling that hes going to struggle. The way he played last week, I think Lewis is a man on a mission and is gunning for a play-off spot and will this by the odd leg.Prediction: Im going to go against Anderson and pick Adrian Lewis to win the opening match.James Wade v Robert Thornton James Wade edged out Raymond van Barneveld in a tense clash last week Robert Thornton, away from the big stage, has been playing poorly and Ive been mentioning it every week. I still dont think Robert is 100 per cent right, I dont think hes fit. When he gets a chance, he lacks composure because those chances are so few and far between. He has lost 7-0 twice this season alone and nothing is going right for him.I cannot see any reason why that run will end against James Wade. To be honest, Wade like a lot of them, Im not sure what to make of them this season. Anderson, Adrian Lewis and James Wade have been up and down, but what James has got is a game which allows him to play poorly and still win. Whereas a few of the others, Lewis to name just one, cannot do that.James has been playing as good as ever, but maybe just a tad inconsistent.Prediction: Wade will complete a comfortable victory. Michael van Gerwen v Phil Taylor Van Gerwen has performed well against Taylor in recent months These two have played each other already six times this year. Six times! Were only in March. There is no way that Michael van Gerwen is sick of the sight of Phil Taylor, because he keeps getting the better of him. He has won nine of the last 10, Van Gerwen. No one on the planet has ever had a record like that and no one has beaten Phil Taylor more.I cannot see a Taylor win here, I cannot. I think the Phil will get the more hostile reaction, with it being in Scotland. I think they will go for the Green Machine. Hes the only man in the history of darts to have withstood The Power. Wayne Mardle on Michael van Gerwen There are a couple of things that might be bothering Phil Taylor. When he gets in front, Michael doesnt falter he just fights back. He knows that Michael will not buckle and I think that actually puts Phil off. Michael is the only man in the history of darts to have withstood The Power. I think Michael wins, hes on the crest of the wave, and knows hes the best player on the planet and will want to show it.Prediction: Michael will take the win over Taylor. Michael van Gerwen plays Phil Taylor in a stunning top-of-the-table clash on Thursday night as Premier League Darts heads to Glasgow Raymond van Barneveld v Dave Chisnall Raymond van Barneveld has lost his last three matches in the Premier League We have mentioned that a few players have been inconsistent, well these two just sum it up. Matt Joyce Jersey. . Ive got no idea with Barney and I dont think he does either. He looks as if hes up for it and if you were to say: Raymond, you are just about to fight David Haye, he would say yeah, okay. Two minutes later you look at him and think whats happened? The Premier League is heading back to Glasgow, so we looked back at last year’s epic encounter between Phil Taylor and Raymond van Barneveld I just think he has a confidence crisis and sometimes he cannot get out of it. If he turns up with the swagger and strut we know, he can achieve anything. But I think Chizzy is the more reliable of the two - and I cannot believe Ive just said that.Prediction: Im going to go with Chisnall to win, because I feel he is playing to a higher level every game.Gary Anderson v Peter Wright  Peter Wright is targeting his fourth win of the campaign If Peter Wright changes his darts again, then I will be annoyed. Like I said, I think its going to be a difficult night for Gary Anderson. Two real tough games.Wright has averaged 108 and 106 the last two weeks, and he won a tournament at the weekend. If he plays like he has been, can he possibly lose with a 107 average? I dont think so. It doesnt mean hes going to average 107, but the way he has been playing, hell think he can win this.In Glasgow, the expectation on Gary is going to be immense and I think it might be too emotionally draining for him as he plays first and last. Ive already gone for a Lewis win and I think that knock of confidence will play a part in the game against Wright.Prediction: I think Wright will sneak this in a last-leg thriller.Watch Premier League Darts on Thursday live on Sky Sports 1 HD from 7pm.  Or watch for £6.99 without a contract, on NOW TV.
