    New Zealand domestic season 03/04

    Well I believe this season is starting in a few days.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    Yeah and it has Craig Spearman and Mohammed Wasim as overseas players.

    I predict Nicol, Ryder, Cumming, McIntosh, Papps to have good seasons with the bat. Also how good is Jamie How? He has a decent record and I like the look of Peter Fulton.

    I know his only big score is a 300, but at least it does show he can bat for long periods and score the runs.

    BTW how long is Wasim contracted to Otago for?

    I believe Wasim will be playing for Otago for the whole domestic season, as he did last season.
    Apparently he had some good advice for his team mate Craig Cumming on the Pakistani bowlers.

    Jamie How is a good player, his average was tripe though until he scored 2 big hundreds at the end of last season. I recall that he batted well in that World Domestic Championship a few years back in Perth & Dean Jones thought he had a good future. He's probably well down the list of NZ candidates though, he should probably aim for NZ 'A' honours this season.

    Yeah Fulton pretty much scored 300 & then a few 50's here & there, but if he can become more consistent then he could force his way into the NZ squad to England, I think he too will be looking at a spot in the NZ 'A' team.

    The players with a realistic chance of making the NZ team this season are McIntosh & perhaps either Ryder or Nicol...Cumming may also come into calculations, but the selectors would probably give Richard Jones the nod before him.

    I have a feeling though that Jones will be another Matthew Bell and that his technique could well be vunerable at international level.

    From the lists I have seen, there are no new spinners this season...but i'd say the players who will look to achieve higher honours than FC level are:

    Aaron Redmond (Canterbury)
    Jeetan Patel (Wellington)
    Luke Woodcock (Wellington)
    Bruce Martin (Northern Districts)

    Im absolutely sure that in a few years Auckland will produce a very good spinner.

    I'm looking forward to this season and predict some interesting selections at rep level, particularly with Braces' County success at OD level & the upcoming tour to England.

    Aaron Redmond might have sneaked up the list as he can bowl some wrist spin.

    hey guys we are now into the 2nd round in the State Championship.....

    can we have some updates from the local correspondents not just of the scores, but also of individual performances - particularly regarding the form etc of current & fringe players....

    I know we can get the stats etc elsewhere (main menu), but some local 'colour' / discussion etc would be appreciated...

    ta muchly

    Luke Woodcock is more of a batting allrounder who can bowl left arm spin.

    Redmond is only a part time option for Canterbury.

    Jeff Wilson is by the far the best performer so far in the State Championship.

    is Wilson back to bowling medium fast as he did during his ODI days???? I recall he got an ankle injury which meant he was restricted in movement & changed to bowling spin.

    Perhaps if the Pakistan series was being selected now he could have made the team ahead of some of the players that did go - another lower order allrounder of established ODI credentials & perhaps a 'sleeper' for the upcoming Home series?????

    I fondly remember his VB Series exploits with Cairns some years back........

    The old NZ crick info home site has been revamped & I can not find anything other than the headlines, and the wisden cricinfo link won't let me open the domestic links!!!!!!!
