    Nah good stuff by Southee and Anderson, wish it was on Sky here.
    TBH he already looks better then most of Kiwi seamers outside Franklin, Mills or Martin. So he needs to picked cus he one of best you got. It shouldn't really matter how old he is. Just look at Sharma playing at 19, if your good enough your old enough. If you play him as basically the 4th seamer behind Oram, I think it would be a good way to introduce him into the side.

    This is probably the best bowling attack the NZ U19 side has ever had. However, aside from Worker, Williamson and Anderson..the batting's a little on the light side.

    Hmm but his domestic record is OK without being brilliant. I just want to be careful, the last thing we need is to ruin such a talent by not allowing him to develop first.

    NZ U19's won't get a better chance to beat Pakistan.

    They're 135/8 after 40 odd overs.

    Im slightly worried about our batting, but good luck to them!

    ND always seem to produce some pretty good bowlers. A player steal is in order I think.

    If Williamson, Worker or Andeson score runs we should get home.

    What have the bowlers finished with? (and where are the scores?)

    go up the page a bit and there's a link i posted.

    Well looking at the other scores, I think the pitches and conditions might be playing a part, so it could well be a mammoth effort by NZ to get a win.

    A certain blonde spin bowler never really did anything before he played for Australia.

    He's scored 476 @ 43.27 for Melbourne this year anyway.

    In the national under 19s comp at the end of last year, he scored 402 runs @ 57.43. Four 50s and a hundred from 7 knocks.

    He will have, score 10+ Test centuries by the time his career is over - (despite being Diamond Creek scum)

    Would Ladbrokes take that sort of bet?
