Vimes tells it how it is:
I expect nothing, which means it's 45 more than I anticipated. And makes Hobart, Colombo etc so much sweeter. Plus there's a few Howick boys waiting in the wings, so a few failures can't help.
Not even gonna go into the joke of a squad that is Auckland A. Hardly any of those guys are putting up serious numbers in club cricket, obviously with a few exceptions. Hakaraia as a talent is unbelievable, just has no focus in life and the latter point i starting to really bite him in the arse. Michael Barry is a serious opener as well. Unfortunately in terms of the rest of the sie guys around the scene will know who SHOULD be in there (Andrew De Boorder anyone?).
The world just doesn't understand leg spin
Is Hickey still bowling these days? I thought he had all but given up on it.

Ben Horne has had a pretty avg run of club form - Mike Barry is a decent player and Mactar you've got to have there. As captain is a head-scratcher though.
As for Chapman, fairly certain I saw his name on a North Shore scorecard recently. But some of the names on the A scorecard don't mean a thing to me so I must have been at the beach too often
What is the story with O'Donnell. Wasn't he 12th man last shield game? But not in the B squad?
Also if Bartlett not required for T20s, then let the rest of the country's provincial A teams glory in his Kemar Roach action

Bartlett really should be required shouldn't he, nothing says 'we're the defending champs' like Matt Quinn and Donovan Grobbelaar obvs. Otago to probably quite enjoy a Mark Perham track tonight.
BTW. My question about ODonnell and the Prov A squad was genuine, rather than just a general whine. Anyone know why he's good enough almost for Plunket but not good enough for Prov A Lincloln week?
My theory, is maybe they think schoolboys don't have the boundary hitting muscle? Seeing as it is just 50 and 20 over stuff. Or he could just be on holiday or something ....
I was already impressed based on the amount he was hitting the seam, pace, angle, and bounce. I thought swing (or lack of) may have been his Achilles heel.
