    I'm very disappointed that Roneel Hira (who has still been carving up at club level) seems to have fallen out of favour? Is he seen as just a one-day specialist now?

    Funny situation for me because I have also been keeping an eye on Nethula. The reason is, I played against him at school and thought he was gun, and have been expecting him to make the Auckland XI ever since, but it seemed like it would never happen.

    I remember because I played against Nethula in early 2000, when I was a still-14-year-old 5th former just starting out in the First XI, and he was a 7th former. Everyone had been talking him up before the game because apparently he had been recruited to bowl to the Black Caps (remember the Aussie tour of 1999/2000?) in preparation for facing Shane Warne.

    He smashed 160-odd off us in one afternoon, including hitting my first 2 balls ever at first XI level for 4 The next week, he almost single-handedly bowled us out. I came in at number 8 or 9 and ended up having to block, and I scored 7 off about 60 balls, of which 30 would have been against Nethula. Pretty much I just kept playing down the line and missing- he certainly turns it a bit. I also remember being completely deceived by his wrong-un- I went to cut it and ended up playing a ridiculous shot where the ball came off the face of my bat and went down to fine-leg.

    He must be either 25 or 26 as he is 2 years older than me. Not sure why he took so long to crack Auckland as he was an obvious talent from a young age.

    We have serious problems if calling Jeetan Patel ineffective is controversial. His FC record is embarrassing and his international career so far sub-par.

    Fail.

    Hey, since you went on tour with him...how good is he? I've read articles that tend to suggest he is absolutely fantastically talented and is a bit of a prodigy. Any substance to those claims?

    I might go back through U-19 names and try and figure out who Jimmy is because I'm nosy.

    Does anyone know if/when the ICL players will be coming home? I know Marshall (H) is playing for ND as an overseas player, but what about Harris, McMillan, Bond, Tuffee, Adams, Vincent et al.?
