    Hmm was it Merchant or Southee, that Lezlie was dribbling over?

    Impressive. He could have some fun on the University Oval pitches.

    Theres a few news articles about him being on the verge of signing but i can't find any that confirm it

    from
    Here

    “It’s all pretty much sorted,” explained Croft. “Lancashire are going through the contract, and Auckland are going through theirs. Going away to play first-class cricket means it will be something extra special.

    “I have never been to New Zealand, but I have been to Australia twice. I have certainly never been away to play first-class cricket.”

    Croft will become the fourth Lancashire player to play for Auckland in recent times, joining Mal Loye, Lou Vincent and James Anderson.

    I've found an answer to this question...

    The men's State Twenty20 competition expands from six rounds and a final last season, to eight rounds and a final for 2008-09. SKY will televise a record eight State Twenty20 matches, and the State Shield final.
    FFS.

    Don't know quite where you're coming from with that comment. He was only born in Birmingham, lived in NZ the vast majority of his life I'm pretty sure.

    Northern - Merchant, Boult
    Otago - Todd, McMillan
    Wellington - Woodcock, Bowden
    Jimmy's past his best, unfortunately. He's finding it harder and harder to stay on the paddock. Great talent, but likes his nights out a bit too much.

    Could be a bit misleading though - aren't there almost two levels of first-class cricket in South Africa?

    He asked if there were any English players signed to play and I was under the impression he was playing cricket in England prior to the under-19 world cup at least anyway, could be wrong though, horribly repentant if I struck a nerve...

    Haha, yeah he was a disappointment in a big way last year - I just remember seeing him bowl at some stage of his career and thought he looked quite good, think that was a couple of seasons ago though. If he's not going too flash this year he may even struggle to get a game with the likes of Butler, Harvie, Smith & Turner pushing to join McSkimming, Scott & newly-signed Wagner for a spot in the seam attack

    Yeah there's a "A" & "B" pool IIRC, though i'm pretty sure all SA FC cricket is of a generally high standard. Elliott came to NZ with a fairly average record so I guess only time will tell

    Nah, they have a genuine second tier now. They basically just put another competition (franchise cricket) on top of their existing one and they overlap so you get some pretty poor standard cricket played in that second tier at times.

    Franchise cricket is very strong but the level below is nowhere near the same standard so you have to be careful when looking at South African First Class records.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Kiwis, how much interest does the public really take towards your domestic competitions whether it be FC, OD or 20/20's?

    Heaps. Nah, none.

    I mean, honestly, how are we supposed to quantify this?

    First Class: About half a dozen
    One Dayers: I'd reckon around quarter past eleven
    and 20/20s: A lot. I'd reckon somewhere around 'Y' or possibly beyond. Could be looking at '%' or even '&'
