    Adam Milne

    Yes, I am a biased CD ****, and Howsie is a biased fast bowling ****, but even Bahnz rates the kid ffs, so he must be good.

    Anyway, Adam Milne is an eighteen year old genuinely fast bowler from Central Districts who just had the Warriors ****ting themselves. Promising for NZ imo.

    Shane Bond is CD's bowling coach. Hope he stays for a few years tbh, because we have quite a few quick guys around. Bevan Small is no slouch, though he's more of an early 140s bowler.

    I remember when Matthew Bell picked him out as being something a bit of the ordinary in terms of his pace. Hugely exciting prospect. That last over was wonderful, he was just beating the yarpie batsmen for pace with every ball, and was a tad unlucky not to get a couple more tbh. Haven't really seen him swing it much yet, but the length he's been bowling so far has kind of been too short for him to have much chance. At this current age he can probably only keep up that kind of pace for short concentrated bursts. But if he stays fit (huge if), we may have a genuine greyhound ready for the 2015 world cup.

    What was interesting was Coach Bond estimated Milne and McClenaghan were around the same pace.

    Now McClenaghan is obviously coming off a big injury, and he has a lot of improvement left to make in his bowling (imo Milne is further along already, and the results are showing it), but geez, having a left and right arm genuine pace attack with Mason's domestic ability and Bracewell's reverse swing could be great fun if it all clicks.

    It was a pity that Bracewell got it so wrong today, as he looked a talent in the first game. Hope his confidence doesn't take too much of a knocking.

    He'll bounce back. He's not the first to be Davey Jacobs'd.

    Oh noes. NZ world beating awesomeness teenager #107 (as mentioned on CW) in the past 5 years. Forget Pakistan's spot fixing, NZ's incredible talent is the thing that will devastate cricket. Watching their reserve reserve sides utterly decimate every other nation making the game a procession will kill cricket as a spectator sport.

    How is anyone else supposed to take these things seriously when there's so much ridiculous rhetoric? The guy got pummelled when you'd have thought he took 3 wickets whilst every other ball was a play and miss going by posts made above.

    Hopefully he will turn out to be a good fast bowler, but there needs to be some objectivity here.

    Milne to break down with a stress fracture in his back at age 20, after a busy offseason bowling at indoor nets...

    I can't for the life of me remember where I read it, but apparently ECB guidelines say that fast bowlers should hardly ever bowl on indoor surfaces because they are so hard.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Probably good guidelines too - it's just that the NZ cricket fraternity carry on with it regardless.

    I remember that it shocked me; I'm starting to think that perhaps it said 'never' when talking about bowling indoors. It is interesting because I never clocked it as something particularly dangerous.

    His action bothers me. I hope he can stay healthy. But yes pretty exciting
    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.
