    Hamish Marshall

    What do you guys think of Hamish Marshall?
    I thought his 146 In the first test vs aus was sensational.

    Could be exactly what we need at no 3.

    ITs strange that his first class record is so crap in nz (both 4 day and 1 day). Yet he has a superb odi record, and has made a good start to test cricket.
    I think he can be our best batsman and average 45 in tests.

    He is already a superb odi batsman.

    I think he can succeed purely due to the fact he offers something different to much of the New Zealand batting line-up, and he does that thing different quite well.

    He's fairly compact and doesn't seem to lack in concentration.

    Hopefully he goes on from this series.

    Definately doesn't lose concentration. Fantastic technique and quick hands. Macca must hate the guy. He would be thinking - "how can a guy start slowly then score nearly a run a ball every innings?" Where o where have I gone wrong.

    Marshall will sit the mark for future players and how they attack their game. Seeing they can be successful with minimal risk will only serve to help their games.

    His brother James has been called up as well for the 3rd test and will open. i like th new line up.
    Craig Cumming, J Marshall, H Marshall, S Flemming, Lou Vincent, N Astle, McCullum.

    Hamish has a good technique for 3 and Lou Vincent is their Thorpesque grinder at 5. Should be a more solid lineup now.

    Thinkinb about it, aren't they copying england abit. Captain and star batsman at 4, the destructive guy at 6. New comer in at 2. that slight feeling of dejavu is just coming on abit

    but then again they have a more than decent no3 ***Key***

    Yeah he will be a good batsman as soon as he learns not to throw his wicket away.

    He can't possibly be successful just because he's different.
    The second part makes much more sense.

    He can if the rest of the batsmen are similar to each other - therefore the bowlers have to adjust their attack accordingly.

    And all batsmen are different - the fundamentals of bowling remain the same.

    imo- flat track bully. Not that it matters much these days. Will benefit more than most from the modern perception of a "good" pitch.

    Strangely, I find myself agreeing with Richard. It's like saying that every team needs a left arm seamer to provide the necessary variation. Well Australia doesn't use one!!!

    I think Marshall is basically stuck on the back foot. Straight, full bowling with the appropriate field would severly restrict his scoring and significantly improve wicket-taking. Also has a poor record against spin, possibly because of his back-foot tendency.

    That said, I think he has performed admirably in comparison to the rest of the BC top order this summer.

    The key with Marshall is that he doesn't seem to be mentally troubled like McMillan, Fleming & co can be.

    He just goes out to bat & does the basics.
