Poor old Johnston got dropped for this game after taking a few wickets in his last couple of outings. Canterbury do appear to have built up their spin bowling stocks. Is it just me or does their tail for this game look quite long?
What is Craig Cachopa? I'm sure he kept wicket for Wellington at some point last season, and I've heard somewhere he can bowl a bit, but here he seems to be playing as a specialist batsman at number seven which is strange considering CdG looks a bit high at four and Hopkins must be getting tired considering he's coming in after top order collapses every innings at five and then has to keep wicket. Cachopa is coming off a big hundred as well so they could show some faith. Strang and co. have a plan for him I'm sure. Can he and Munro do it again?
edit: and I take it Kitchen is injured?
Yep, Anaru broke his hand copping one at bat pad v CD. Looking to be back for the Friday night HRV match on the 21st.
And Chops doesn't bowl, handy enough keeper.
