    The Papps dismissal was so 2007.

The ability to work on his game, put it into practice and bat for long periods hasn't come to him yet. It's something I've always seen in Colin Munro and has been proven lately. His bowling could have also been something v decent but he's had tendonitis issues and lost pace. Unfortunately I think he'll be overrun by the likes of Neesham/Munro/Anderson/the next clean striking all rounder.
    That's a shame about the bowling. I've always been impressed when I've seen him batting in domestic one dayers or the HRV Cup. I didn't see his innings against SA, but it sounded as if he went reasonably well before he was run out. I would have liked to see him at the T20 WC.

    Guys like Andrew and Astle have had success with the bat this season as well.
    OK my updated version, again not including Astle as he used to be a batsman (and kinda is again) and Neesham as he should be a genuine all-rounder:


    Scott Kuggeleijn 142* vs CD (maiden FC 100)
    Bruce Martin 114 vs ND
    Bruce Martin 56* vs CD
    Tarun Nethula 108 vs Otago (maiden FC 100)
    Adam Milne 97 vs Otago
    Tim Southee 156 vs Wellington (maiden FC 100)
    Mark Gillespie 77 vs Canterbury
    Ian Butler 73* vs CD
    Ian Butler 63* vs ND
    Mark Craig 93 vs ND
    Kyle Mills 63* vs Canterbury
    Matthew Bates 59 vs CD
    Ish Sodhi 48 vs Otago (FC debut knock)
    Ish Sodhi 50 vs CD
    Gareth Andrew 180* vs Auckland (maiden FC 100)
    Ben McCord 47 vs Otago

    In the context of so many under-performing specialist batsmen, many of whom have yet to pass 50, that's pretty spectacular.

    Doubt they will play in Wellington today. Ajaz Patel looks to have a nice action, doesnt throw it which is nice.. When did Nick Beard start chucking?

    Agreed on both points. Tugaga looks great. Unplayable delivery.

    Jess that was awful.

    Mills in Andrew/Southee mould! It's a quite incredible pattern this round of games; all three have seen a lower order batsman bat superbly then open the bowling with instant results. Confidence?

    The trend continues with Wagner and Craig cashing in against CD. Canterbury currently 85/7, so on target to post 300+.

    Kuggle's action is looking more and more bond-like

    and Ryder catapults himself out of the test frame with that single shot. Horrid.

    Plus:

    Mark Craig 63 vs CD


    I'll keep this log going. Someone can do one with specialist batsmen who average under 25

    Hmm, 7 of those knocks against CD..just one apiece against Wellington and Auckland, but boy were they biggies.

    There's something Simon Jones-like about Tugaga's action; slightly round arm, swing. That's what immediately comes to my mind anyway.

    Although it's been a while since I have seen Jones bowl ....

    Edit: so I have had a look at Jones on YouTube, and yeah, not really, apart from both being a little round arm

    Chris Martin didn't bowl second innings for Auckland - wonder if he's injured.

    Can't believe Mills 10 wickets for the match. Bruce Martin also with 7 - I guess that's good in case he's needed in SA. Looks like a large dose of Lolcanterbury though.

    People keep talking about how improved the bowling is at the moment, but the stats don't really bear that up. Currently, of the top 10 wicket takers, only 3 have averages under 30 (Butler, Arnel and Nethula). The quality young quicks (Milne and Wheeler in particular) have done better, but obviously have only played a couple of games due to injury.

    Play against spin might improve now Merlyn has arrived. I remember it was used by the England team for the 2005 Ashes.

    The ‘Merlyn’ as it is called, was recently purchased by NZC and gives players the opportunity to face all types of spin bowling all year round.
    It has the ability to replicate side spin, top spin, back spin, speed and flight. A number of international players have vouched for the Merlyn and believe it has substantially improved their play of spin bowling.

    The Merlyn will be used by players of all levels at NZC and will be based in Lincoln.
