    And yet we still won the HRV Cup. Shudder to think what Mendis would have done to Marshall and co.

    He'd be a non factor after we'd bowled them out for 50

    I just hope Central Districts can come back from this tbh, god knows we need a strong Central.......wait

    You'll get your strong Central.

    In other news, if Bennett stays with the Black Caps for a while, what are Canterbury going to do for bowlers? There's Anderson and Astle, with Frauenstein for the shorter formats and your Ellis's and Hiini's, but do they have a specialist strike seam/swing bowler or two in the wings? These guys made Hadlee and Bond after all so I hope so.

    EDIT: I'm guessing Ryan Burson will feature this season, and possibly Logan van Beek.

    Richard Sherlock, Ryan McCone and perhaps Michael Davidson if he's still around. Maybe they might even give Amandeep Singh (if he's still down there at uni) a run finally. But yeah they might be relying on quite a few all rounders to get them through early on.

    Will be interesting to see how long Sherlock stays uninjured this time around. Must be infuriating for him.

    Amandeep Singh came out of ND didn't he? According to the ICC games he did anyway.

    Yeah, made his first class debut while he was still at school. He ended up going down to Canterbury for Uni and I don't think he's played too many games for them since.

    tbh
    Pfft that is one bloody long tail. Bracewell at 6? Weakest CD batting lineup in a long time. (Admittedly potentially the best attack next year)

    Diamanti at eight is hardly a long tail tbh. Bracewell is an allrounder so may as well give him a chance at six or seven.

    Bracewell, van Wyk and Diamanti aren't the worst lower order batsman but having them as your 6-8 just seems like a recipe for a failure IMO. All 3 should be batting 7 onwards, none are number 6 material.

    Diamanti probably won't play much of the FC stuff anyway, going on what's happened in previous years. Van Wyk has a decent average, could probably bat six. If we wanted the extra batsman then Worker could bat at six.

    Though I'd still like to see Bracewell at six or seven. I think he's capable.

    I'd bat Worker at 6 personally or even Noema.

    Nah, KNB isn't a FC number six. Bracewell and van Wyk would be better than him.

    Worker might benefit from a shuffle down the order though.

    Would you like him for when Franklin is next called up to fail for NZ?
