    Hmmm, I didn't think Worker would pick up a contract this season. Rightfully so might I add. They've still got to announce one more contract so hopefully it's someone decent and not a Ewen Thompson like clone in Seth Rance. Or Kieran Noema Barnett, that would probably be worse.

    Seth Rance is pretty good in swinging conditions.

    And that is about it.

    Personally I'm backing Adam Milne.

    Har, Canterbury have picked up Richard Sherlock. Obviously never heard the expression "Once bitten, twice shy".

    Logical. Hira is a core part of the Aucks 1-day team, and based on last year's performances Bhupinder Singh covers two roles as a FC spinner - long containing spells, or wicket taking spells if conditions suit. IIRC Nethula only covered one of those roles.

    I'm an ND fan but I think the Aucks look threatening this year, Myburgh is a big signing as he will be keen to post some big centuries to force the NZ selectors to pick him, and they have a core of young players with 2-4 years experience (Raval, de Grandhomme, De Boorder, Kitchen, Bates) who know that a big season will push them to the fringe of national selection. A little like ND were about 3-4 seasons ago. This year ND have a very experienced side but perhaps a few too many are past the peak of their career ...

    Quite interested in the Auckland side this season. De Boorder, Kitchen, Raval and Myburgh all players i'm keen to keep an eye on.

    Still...go ND!!

    I'm wondering who is going to open alongside Raval and take the gloves.

    Didn't Guptill miss out on an NZC contract?

    Anyway, backing Myburgh for a huge season now he's moved to Auckland Airport Runway to bat.

    I suspect the CD First Class side will look something like:

    How
    Ingram
    Patton
    Sinclair
    Weston
    Bracewell
    van Wyk
    Mason
    Milne
    McClenaghan
    Nethula

    Backing us to do quite well tbh. The attack could be a little expensive, but there is plenty of wicket taking ability in there. Hopefuly it won't need to be the Mason/Thompson show to get all our wickets this year, because Thommo is gone and this must be about Mason's last year.

    The batting of course, is God-like. Only Auckland have anything able to challenge it.

    Will Wellington open with Brodie and Bell, has Merchant decided where he wants to play?

    Who cares, they're going to lose anyway.



    I thought it was pretty set in stone that Bell/Brodie open and Merchant bats three?

    Surely Diamanti will slot in somewhere, I'd look for him to bat at six because there is no way Doug Bracewell is good enough to bat there, not at the moment anyway. I'd go Bracewell at eight, and Nethula at nine with Mason and McClenaghan rounding out the tail.

    They don't seem to give Diamanti much of a run in FC.

    And there's no way he should bat six.

    Bracewell hasn't had any real go in the middle order and he's supposed to be a genuine allrounder, so he might as well slot in at six.

    Diamanti could bat at eight, but I'd rather give Milne the go in the longer form and keep Diamanti for his strongest formats, OD and 20/20.

    Cricket: Auckland lose Myburgh but extra slot now open - Cricket - NZ Herald News

    Auckland have lost their high-profile domestic cricket signing for next season - and New Zealand have potentially lost a future international batsman.

    Myburgh's partner has taken a job working with England's Lawn Tennis Association and the 30-year-old batsman, who has been playing in the Netherlands in the off-season, won't be returning to New Zealand.

    But instead he is looking at taking up an opportunity with an English county, scuppering any New Zealand ambitions.
    Tough luck Auckland. It's disappointing for New Zealand but I'm pretty meh on it, would rather us not have to pick players like your Myburgh's and Van Wyk's that come over here at an advanced age looking to play international cricket.

    Would have averaged 35-40 in Tests IMO, which would have been very handy.

    Dissapointed to hear this news.

    If he was like the 5th player we had in the team of SA origin I might have questioned it - but had no problem with 1 or 2 SA players in our team.

    Sucks.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Seth tears **** up in the wairarapa, easily the best bowler in the club scene here.

    Although then again, it is only the wai
