    You'd have to wonder who conceeded all the runs, especially in that opening match - more than likely terrible figures for those bowlers. At least the Marshalls, McCullum, Astle, and most of all, Cumming gained some decent batting practice.

    For anyone wondering where I got my "Fleming has the second best average for the past two years", my "two years" statement wasn't for the past exact 24 months, but 01/01/2003 to date.

    Back to the cricket though - disappointing indeed. For six wickets to fall and for our third-best score to be just 36 runs is awful. The second game looks to have been a game where our top order failed, too - although it's hard to say without a scorecard, because I don't know who came in when. But the last two batsmen being not out means our other five wickets fell for roughly 150 runs or so? Dreadful.

    Bowling not too great either, although it's nice to see Bond doing alright.
    REMEMBER: A couple of years in therapy, you'll get over it.

    "When Burger was finally out, Namibia had reached 301, just 29 runs short of the victory target.New Zealand's wicket takers were James Franklin (3/46 off 9 overs), Shane Bond (2/20 off 10), Chris Martin (1/72 off 7), Kyle Mills (2/77 off 9) and Daniel Vettori (2/80 off 10)."

    Pretty easy to spot the guys who were in Australia and those who all but f***ing hibernated this winter.

    1/72, 2/77 and 2/80...ouch.

    Hopefully that's just a loosener to start the tour, not a sign of things to come!

    This has nothing to do with Zimbabwe, but probably worth putting up if other CW Kiwis missed it....

    Cricket: Butler chooses England coach over Hadlee's tour

    Fast bowler Ian Butler has turned his back on Sir Richard Hadlee's New Zealand 'A' cricket tour of Sri Lanka to train with an England bowling coach.

    New Zealand 'A' manager and national selector Hadlee confirmed Butler was selected for next month's tour but withdrew on the grounds he wasn't yet at full fitness.

    It is understood Butler, who is nearing full fitness after being sidelined by a bulging disc in his back last season, is still angered at losing his New Zealand Cricket (NZC) contract in June and preferred to play club cricket in England.

    Rather than work with New Zealand's great fast bowler, Butler has sought the technical guidance of Australian Troy Cooley, the man credited with turning around the fortunes of England paceman Steve Harmison last year.

    Hadlee said Butler -- who couldn't be contacted today -- explained that he didn't want to be rushed back too soon from injury.

    "Definitely, it would have been ideal for him to bowl alongside Daryl Tuffey and Chris Martin in Sri Lanka," Hadlee said.

    "But we respected his decision.

    "That's good if he's got somebody he can go to, a guy (Cooley) he can trust to work with. He certainly worked wonders with Harmison."

    The most dissapointing thing about the Bracewell era is how Butler has been treated. He should have played that test against Aus, now all that blooding of him could go to waste.

    I just hope Butler's not lost to NZ cricket. I still think he has tons of potential

    The Namibian's full report on the second match -
    http://www.namibian.com.na/2005/Augu...5C9F217A9.html

    Cumming and J Marshall opened both days, so I take it that's what they're committing to for this Sunday. As for the bowling Vettori rebounded nicely, however Mills and Martin were still quite expensive.

    My test team would be.....

    J MARSHALL
    FLEM(That was Mcgrath who made him struggle against Aus.Not the fact he was opening)
    H MARSHALL
    VINCENT (like him at 4 or 5 on recent form)
    ORAM ( I'd like to see them experiment with Oram slightly higher in the order especially if not doing too much bowling)
    ASTLE (Like Styris has been disappointing in county cricket - Well suited to no.6 where he can play more freely - Has Styris fighting for this no.6, handy bowler slot.
    MCCULLUM
    FRANKLIN
    VETTORI
    BOND
    MARTIN

    Looks much stronger in the bowling Dept with Bond and Oram back.

    To Miss out......
    STYRIS- due to his indifferent county form coupled with the fact Astle is able to bowl those restricting overs again. Also the above lineup gives you 4 seamers plus Astle.
    Needs better form to challenge to regain a middle order slot

    WISEMAN - Unless an extremely dry track i'd bowl just the one spinner

    CUMMING - Hasn't the technique nor the age on his side to continue with in my view. I think J Marshall a better pick.

    MILLS - I still wondering what happens between Bracewell and Mills when the lights go out. I still have my concerns about a NZ test lineup with Mills included.

    Mills is less likely (and almost at 0) to make this team if Bond remains fit.

    My side -

    J Marshall
    Fleming
    H Marshall
    Vincent
    McCullum (should help remove any feelings of being in a rush for McCullum. If he builds an innings and is the sixth or seventh to fall, he still gets a nice gap on either side of his keeping duties.)
    Oram
    Styris
    Vettori
    Franklin
    Bond
    Martin

    The side I think they'll select -

    Cumming
    J Marshall
    H Marshall
    Fleming
    Vincent
    Astle
    McCullum
    Vettori
    Franklin
    Bond
    Martin

    Zimbabwe Squad
    Tatenda Taibu *+ (Mash)
    Heath Streak VC (Mata & Warks)
    Andy Blignaut (Mash)
    Stuart Carlisle (Mash)
    Graeme Cremer (Mash)
    Dion Ebrahim (Manica)
    Keith Dabengwa (Mid)
    Anthony Ireland (Mid)
    Blessing Mahwire (Manica)
    Brendan Taylor (Mash)
    Craig Wishart (Mid)
    Neil Ferreira (Manica)
    Hamilton Masakadza (Mash)
    Chris Mpofu (Manica)

    I'm not sure I have the provinces right, I'm having a lot of problems with AOL at the moment and it can't support Cricinfo, it keeps crashing with two windows open.

    Keith Dabengwa is a very surprising choice, he is a SLAing allrounder, capable of giving it a whack. Obviously if the pitch is going to turn he'll partner Cremer. Also they have gone back on their decision to ban Brendan Taylor. I expect this is because they don't want to select Gripper (too old, white) and the opener they would have selected to partner Ferreira, Terence Duffin, is injured. Strong (relatively) batting lineup but I would have liked to have seen Chigumbura insteads of Wishart. Probable team:

    Ferreira
    Taylor
    Ebrahim
    Carlisle
    Masakadza
    Wishart
    Taibu
    Blignaut
    Streak
    Mpofu
    Cremer

    In case of a spinning wicket, Wishart would probably make way for Dabengwa. Don't rule out Ireland replacing Mpofu but I don't think it'll happen.

    Good to see a good Zimbo side, Vernon's back! Great to see, at least it will probably not be totally one way traffic
