    Might be too underdone for India, but surely he's gotta be back for Pakistan?

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

    New Zealand Cricket - Yardy and Blackwell sign for Stags

    Makes sense I suppose, they must be confindent rather confindent in the likes of Bracewell, Milne and Small.

    Haha, where's the Champions League held next year? Horse might have bolted with snaring a couple of spinners guys. Won't work if it's in England or something.

    Going off that article, the CD Stags minus Black Caps might be something like:

    Peter Ingram
    Jamie How (c)
    Mathew Sinclair
    Tim Weston
    Kruger van Wyk (wk)
    Kieran Noema-Barnett
    Michael Yardy
    Ian Blackwell
    Brendon Diamanti
    Michael Mason
    Mitchell McClenaghan

    Bits and pieces central with the two new additions. I think we could have done better with our signings, especially looking at ND and Wellington's signings. Sinclair and Weston isn't the strongest 3-4 in 20/20 either. I think that squad balance will bite us in the bum. Last years team was better imo.

    The bowling is gun though. McClenaghan or whoever else is in that spot (Mason and Diamanti are safe you would think) having a bad day wouldn't be too much of an issue with the other five bowlers being misers.

    If that's for FC, Yardy and Blackwell will both be batting higher I reckon. Two very curious signings though.

    Ian Blackwell will bat a lot higher then at eight, he bats in the top four for Durham iirc. He can hit a long ball thats for sure.

    Nah it's for the HRV Cup

    Blackwell wouldn't be too bad down the order in T20 because he can hit it quite far and hard iirc

    20/20, and I was going off averages. His FC record is gun but I just assumed he wasn't the greatest 20/20 batsman because he averages under 20 in the format.

    If he bats in the top four for Durham then fair enough, he'll move up to 6. Can't see him displacing the top five bar Weston.

    He won't bat ahead of Sinclair or van Wyk. Weston isn't much of a hitter, more of an accumulator, so those two will scrap it out for number five imo (yes I am still revising my batting order).

    EDIT: Blackwell actually has better returns than van Wyk, which is surprising. Very useful limited overs batsman in van Wyk.

    Yardy can bat four then.

    He may bat ahead of van Wyk actually.

    Will be great if Blackwell and Yardy stick around for some FC cricket. CD with the crazy long batting order once more ftw.
