    Verma, from what I've read was a bit of a medium pacer until last season wasn't that right? All of a sudden he's discovered how to bowl fast.

    Wheeler's in great form. Reckon McClenaghan, Bracewell and KNB will be the ones looking over their shoulders.

    Verma was a medium pacer until a year or so ago yeah.

    KNB and Bracewell have a batting alrounder tag to them don't they? In saying that it seems Mitch has the 'special project' around his neck so it's not likely he would make way.

    Re Verma - will be interesting if he turns into a decent pace bowler, considering how so many people say you either have it or you don't, you can't develop more speed.

    He was only 17 when he played in the 08 Under 19 world cup, you'd think he's just gradually gotten quicker since then.

    KNB is more of a batting allrounder in FC cricket, but I think Bracewell has had a bit more success with ball than bat thus far. Meant to be a genuine allrounder but he's a work in progress atm.

    McClenaghan does seem to have the faith of the CD guys so I'd guess that KNB will drop out and Bracewell will get promoted one spot.

    Or they might just stick with the same team.

    On Verma: I'm surprised people say you can't develop more pace. Mitchell McClenaghan went from medium pace to genuine quick, Ryan Harris and Mitchell Johnson are some Australian examples of gaining speed.

    In other news, ND are 4/1. Michael Parlane goes lbw to McCone for 4.

    Or indeed most players. Its less common than you'd expect for a bowler in his late teens to put on a significant amount of pace.

    McCone continues with some good form.

    I've heard people say you are either born with the ability to bowl fast or your not, and that hitting the 130's is achievable but anything 140 and above, then you have the gift. Also, it's very difficult to expect a player to get that much faster after around 21-22 years of age.

    Lastly, hitting 145's at 18-19 is not that common.

    Southee's quicker then what he was when he made his international debut, not a lot quicker but still a good 5 or so K's.

    He was bowling quicker than 125 when he first started - surely he was.
