    Wellington to be bowled out for below 100.

    Harry Boam must love this in a selfish way. He might score a promotion if the guys above him keep this up.

    Na mate not with the huge break coming up. It'll give the bigger guys time to get in form.

    Sam Wells was on this weeks episode of the Cricket Company for anyone that's interested. They had some bowling footage but it was only net training and he was coming in of about 10 paces.

    Bugger, missed this weeks episode. So what was the info on Wells?

    EDIT: When you saw him live was it a longer run up?

    Wells is a batting allrounder IMO.

    If he can reproduce last years form with the ball then he's a rounded allrounder imo, at least in first class cricket.

    Haha yeah, the footage they showed was him just going through a few bowling drills.

    He seems like a smart fellow though, he's just finished his law degree apparently.

    Yeah I'd agree with that too - espeically going on what he's done this season. He's got talent with the ball though, he's got enough speed to be a decent proposition at the next level. They interviewed Craig Cumming on this weeks show and he reckons he's good enough with the ball to do a job for New Zealand at the next level, apparently he swings it around too which is promising.

    Someone who can average 35 with the bat and 32-35 with the ball would be pretty good at six or seven.

    What I like about him is he's opened the batting in lower levels and commentators say he moves his feet well, which bodes well for his quick innings being proper cricket strokes rather than brute force which is often the case with free scoring allrounders.

    He has done well in pressure situations this season. Update the Wells Watch Imo.
