    I read that G Turner is looking to put himself forward for nomination for a spot on the selection panel.................

    I wonder if this is what J Wright was referring to when he spoke about a possible position with NZCC.............

    could be a changing of the guard with the selectors................

    and if so hopefully an end to the selection of 'converts' - both players selected out of position, and the bowling converts......

    so the Academy has gone spin heavy for it's next intake..................

    a good sign that they at last recognise the need - but does NZL have the domestic pitches to do them any good???????

    Hamish Bennett Canterbury, RA Medium/fast bowler, RH lower order batsman, NZ U19 2005
    Carl Cachopa Auckland, RH top order batsman, RA medium pace bowler, debut with Auckland ‘Aces’ this season, NZ U19 2005, currently playing in England
    Derek De Boorder Auckland, wicket keeper, middle order RH batsman, NZ U19 2004 & 2005
    Jason Donnelly Auckland, LA finger spinner, LH lower order batsman, NZ U19 2005
    Sean Eathorne Otago, RH middle order batsman, RA off spinner, debut for Otago ‘Volts’ 2005, NZ U19 2004

    hell afaic even a part time spin option is better than none at all, or 'just' Vettori...............

    at least if we can develop even part time options then we lessen the risk of over bowling Vettori..............

    I'll just add it to my bowling wish list to go with..........
    genuine 'strike' bowlers to take wickets.....
    genuine seamers with craft as opposed to those who rely upon slow & low NZL green tops for their wickets...........
    proper swing bowlers who are able to move the ball both ways (& particularly reverse) even when the weather is not heavy overhead...........



    and the winning Lotto numbers would also be appreciated in advance................

    What about those teenagers who bowl fast? At least one of them should be given ample opportunities, so that all of them are encouraged to perform, making the scene there more competitive. Is there any harm in playing one of them in place of exploding-greentop-heroes like Martin and Mills?

    .
    A concern of mine is our slip fielding. Fleming has gone downhill in the last couple of years - he's dropped many sitters from memory - and the number of edges going between him and McCullum is unnerving.

    I heard somewhere that James Marshall's passport was stolen from his dads car while at a cafe in Auckland, he was due to fly to England (maybe for buckinghamshire?), but have not heard much more about it, if anyone knows about it, reply.

    I think Styris is as good as anyone going around at the moment. He's nudged Astle out of 2nd slip recently. Vincent would probably be a decent slips catcher, although I don't recall him fielding there often.

    I remember the recent couple of series, Vincent was at 3rd slip or something, but was occasional rather than permanent spot.

    Vincent's more of a cover fielder for mine - his speed to the ball would be wasted in the slips

    Yeah I heard about that too. I think James and his Dad were in a hotel and about to go to the airport, and some piece of filth stole James' laptop, passport etc were from his Dad's car. Honestly we don't need those kind of people in society, they contribute absolutely nothing.

    I haven't heard anything else about it.

    They really are the lowlifes of society if they do these sorts of things, JAH Marshall's profile has Buckinghamshire as a team he has played for.
