    *** Official New Zealand Domestic Season Thread 2010/11 ***

    Just thought I'd start this thread now because I needed to share this news -

    Cricket: Auckland sign Myburgh - Cricket - NZ Herald News

    That story also reports that Styris is going back to ND. Win some, lose some.

    Greg Todd's moving to Auckland too, plus Andre 'double bouncer' Adams is filling the overseas spot.

    Burtt's a decent signing for Welly, they could use a bit of extra pace and aggro in their seam stocks. Hopefully this means they won't need to turn to hacks like Chan this season.

    Styris -> ND
    Myburgh -> Aucks
    Todd -> Aucks
    van Wyk -> CD
    Burtt -> Welly
    Young -> Cant

    Absolutely. Just have to hope he stays injury-free.

    Myburgh becomes eligible to play for New Zealand after the World Cup next year.
    Interesting.
    I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowd
    one day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.

    Heh, Burtt does have a tendency to injure himself in bizarre ways, like that time he broke his foot stepping on a beer bottle.

    Just this year, playing club cricket in Scotland, he managed to pull a hammy, ingrow a toenail, tear his achilles tendon and crack his nose misfielding, which also left a black eye

    Yeah Burtt's a good signing if he can stay on the park, history shows us though that the chances of that happening are very slim. Wellington are a mess at the moment though, I really don't think they have a clue on how to move forward. I read something at the end of last season about all the apparent infighting that was going on and how certain people weren't happy about certain selections, younger players were just getting ago for the sake of it without actually performing at club level, stuff like that. It will be very interesting to see how they fair this season.

    Northern and Auckland are looking like the early favourites for mine.

    How far away are the domestic contract lists? Canterbury might look a little weak.

    He was pretty crap last year, but he has been playing club T20 in the UK so he still seems keen to have a hit around and draw down a pay check.

    Otago's batting is looking a bit thin on the ground so far with the loss of Todd.
    Looks like Darren Broom could pick up a contract, he was immense in club cricket last season and would form a decent middle order with Neil.
    It would also be good to see the young guns like Michael Bracewell or Hamish Rutherford get a run in the team too.

    Excellent to see Jimmy in the Auckland squad - no Nethula amongst the Auckland contracts is interesting though, as is the inclusion Richard Sherlock in the Canterbury squad.
