    Joey was pretty much 2nd XI last year anyway, wasn't he? Scott should provide some pretty good support for Aldridge and Arnel. Don't expect you'll see much of Southee this year.

    Sorry if i wasn't clear. But i basically want to know how much interest crowds in NZ take towards domestic competitions, since from all the international cricket i've ever seen in NZ in my lifetime only the AUS tours of 00, 05 & the chappell-hadlee series before the 07 WC, have i really seen energetic NZ crowds. The crowds in Englands tours 02, 08 were pretty flat IMO.

    So based on that i'm curious to know if crowds really take much interest in the domestic games.

    Twenty20 games are usually sold out, but hardly anyone goes to the FC or 50 over games.

    Also have to remember most FC matches around the world take place when people who would probably watch them are working. Hence the popularity of T20, which you can watch after finishing work (or school) and still get home at a reasonable hour.

    That's a good point.

    I usually go to a few games during the summer break, but with all the Auckland games at Colin Maiden Park this summer I'm not sure that's possible. Pretty hard to get to from here.

    I'm hoping to get to a few of the University Oval matches this year. Especially if there are some Black Caps involved.

    Don't know how you think you struck a nerve...

    99% sure he's never played cricket in England except for the NZ u19 tour there.

    Good question.

    Glen Innes, apparently.

    Will have to find out where that is, want to get back into Domestic cricket.

    Gutted that Sky are only showing the 20/20, although I guess I should be happy with that at least.

    There's a decent TAB outlet at Glen Innis, you have can have a punt on the game before you go and watch! Owzat?

    Colin Maiden Park is the one right next to the tennis centre right? On Merton Road?

    Is that where all of Aucklands home games are being played this season?

    Yeah it is, Eden Park Outer Oval is part of the construction site from now until whenever it's ready for the 2011 World Cup apparently.

    But our payoff for that is that apparently they're going to upgrade the Outer Oval afterwards and hopefully have Tests there. That'd be awesome.

    A yes, of course.

    The outer oval was fantastic as it was. Getting to sit on the boundary rope was fantastic. I hope they don't change that whole "picnic" atmosphere.

    Drove past Colin Maiden Park today...almost had a head on trying to see the pitch. Doesnt look as though any temporary stands are going up or anything...Auckland games are going to be just like club cricket games, fantastic
