    Mid to high 130's, first over anyway. Only saw the last ball of his second over that went for six.

    Again though I have to question the need to play so many specialist bowlers, just makes no sense with this lineup.

    When you have someone of Jono Boult's talent how do you not give him 4 overs Howsie?
    Direbirds FTW!

    This is awesome. Canterbury win here and make their way to the 20 point threshold and ND will have to beat Wellington by like 150 to get through.

    Iqbal and Borgas were really poor. Iqbal got off to a reasonable start - at least by the 2nd over he'd hit a few boundaries, but together with Borgas the scoring became really bogged down and it wasn't really as if they were trying any big shots either - they just kept finding the fielders or scoring singles. The score would have been an embarrassment if Ronchi, Elliott and Kugglejuggle hadn't pulled finger.

    Don't ND only have to win one of their last two games to make it through, that seemed to be what Marshall said at the toss anyway.

    Van Beek is a complete mystery to me, is he a batsmen or bowler because he doesn't really look either.

    Ah you're right.

    Wellington still pretty much certainly in though, win or no.

    Just back from the game. Borgas was abysmal and boosted his SR towards the end after he had dug a massive hole.

    Iqbal decided to slow down after Papps got out. At that stage they were 2 down and I thought he should have continued to hit over the top while the fielding restrictions were still on.

    Anyway what I really wanted to say is that Hamish Rutherford may not have scored the most runs during the game but he looked the goods. He will be a blackcap at some stage.

    Neil Broom also looked classy against spin.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Are the comms touting Hira as a test prospect? FMD. Get the average below 200 first at least.

    He also needs to gain an extra 10 k's of pace first.

    Cricket Wellington ‏@cricketwgtn
    if Firebirds host semi on Friday it will be at Basin Reserve. Start time to be advised
    Oh really? The Stadium sucks so hard that even McGoldrick isn't going to make a "Friday, lights, let's go" request at gunpoint.

    Oh, well this is rich. Thinking of putting your boi Wagner on the bench for the CL, smart.

    Brett Lee to join Volts

    Otago Cricket today confirmed that Brett Lee will join the Otago Volts for their match against the Canterbury Wizards at the University Oval on Tuesday night.

    Otago Cricket Ross Dykes said: “With a home final being secured with two rounds remaining we have taken the opportunity to secure the services of Brett for a one of game on Tuesday. We realise that there is still a lot of hard work to do in this competition but one must plan ahead and be prepared to have players qualified if we were to qualify for the Champions League.

    "With Ryan ten Doeschate involved with several teams world-wide the opportunity to qualify a player of Brett’s quality and give ourselves another option was an opportunity we could not ignore.

    "With the Otago Volts going strongly in the competition and Lee’s involvement in what will be a dress rehearsal for the final we hope that the public comes out and enjoys the occasion on Tuesday night”.

    I think that's why Smithy was talking him up. He got a couple of wickets with 100kph quicker balls, but got his 3rd wicket with a REAL quicker ball, 113kph.
