    Ian O'Brien....

    Anyone see this guy bowl? The papers are saying he bowls at a good clip, and bowls an "awkward" length.

    Is O'Brien faster than James Franklin and the rest of the Wellington domestic bowling attack?
    GO THE BLACK CAPS!!!

    Where did Richardson say that?

    I doubt O'Brien can bowl 140+, otherwise he would have been in the papers already, because only two bowlers in NZ can bowl above 140....

    Franklin is really only around 128-133.

    Well lets hope he can get it up to 140....

    Cricinfo call him a Right Arm Medium, but they call Canning Fast Medium....

    .

    Not true.

    Quite a few players have been clocked around or over 140, But most haven't been able to hold together, or play consistant cricket.

    James McMillan is a classic example.

    I was joking about his anonymity Ming but I must admit I didn't see that selection coming.

    I've seen him bowl at the Basin Reserve and I'd say he's slower than James Franklin - middle 120k's IMO.
