    Yeah, I was going to post something about that. I remember watching Tugaga bowl just before all that crap happened and thought he looked a real talent. I just hope he has matured a little in the past two years.

I know the standard here will be crap compared to Wellington.

    I don't want to play 2020 bashy stuff, I want to play "proper" cricket with people who are taking it reasonably seriously, like village cricket in England, but I know I won't be good enough for the top grades.

    There seems to be a wide range of different types of cricket played up there. I also know some of the guys at my potential new workplace play cricket so perhaps they will introduce me to a club but what can you guys tell me about it?

    They made a whole heap of changes to Wellington club cricket this season; I'm not there anymore so don't know exactly how they've panned out, and I think the structure has changed quite a lot. I think the top grade (Pearce Cup) now has about 12 teams in it, and then below that there's a Reserve grade with all those clubs' second teams (Heef to confirm). After that there's about six more grades, with a few smaller clubs thrown in, and a few local T20 leagues.

    Pearce Cup is a decent standard, though having said that, when I was in Wellington there was a big gap between the top three teams and the rest. I'd say Southland Reserve etc. would be lower standard that Wellington Reserve grade, so you're probably best aiming a bit below that.

    Obviously what club you join will depend on where you live, though make sure you follow the golden rule: don't join Easts.

    Didn't you play for Easts? I'm sure Ch00baka will advocate signing for them to allow learning from Lance Dry.

    One of the few things I did know about Wellington club cricket is to avoid Lance Dry!

    Thanks for the info guys.

    I did wonder if you wanted to learn how to be the least popular person in Wellington club cricket (and most successful).

    I would highly recommend Taita CC. Guaranteed to find a spot in a team there. Good bunch of guys too - especially now I'm not playing.

    Oh, God no. Heeded your warning when I arrived in Wellington and stayed well clear. Biggest bunch of ****s I've ever played against - plenty of teams have one or two ****s, whereas Easts have several.

    Henceforth, this date will be marked in my calendar. Someone heeded my advice! Huzzah.

The quality young quicks (Milne and Wheeler in particular) have done better, but obviously have only played a couple of games due to injury.

    Great point, exactly what I was thinking. It's maybe a case of having to come back closer to the season's end before the quality stands out. At the moment, a bit like the batting averages, it just looks a mess.

    And Auckland complete their come-back and take the win while Canterbury choke.

    After seeing a bit of how Ryder's been playing lately, I think if he does come back to the NZ side (no certainty imo) then he should bat 6 and be our cash-in merchant. He's not going to have the will to take responsibility and face the music against top fast bowlers with the new ball, but if he comes in at 180/4 or 200/4 then he might smash a hundred and ensure we get past 400. Although 'downhill skiiers' are rightly derided on this forum, this does help win matches. Flip side of course is that he'll often come in at 80/4, throw the bat and we'll soon be 90/5.

    Made some awesome comments when mic'd up during a T20 game. Put all the regular commentators to shame.
