    Century for Hakaraia (age 29 and born in Hawaii - what more do you need to know?). Auckland needed that.

    Looks like everyones first go at batting after the boom boom isn't going well.

    Congrats to Hakaraia for his debut ton.

    edit: just noticed Sodhi has only bowled four and a bit overs. itstl. keen to get a look at this pitch. maybe its spicy?

    edit2: with that wicket Verma has four balls at Marto. would 8fer be the best figures ever by a debutant in nz?

    Stoked for Hakaraia. From what I saw of him in the HRV Cup a year or two back, he had a really solid technique; just didn't seem suited to T20. So it's good to see him do well in the longer form. And he's done so at a very decent clip, to be fair.

    Rant over.

    Fuller is bound to come back to Gloucestershire injured. Good to see him doing well though. Hopefully be able to turn it on regularly for us this year.

    Quite a story. Good work digging up that CharlesLara post too - I had a feeling someone had said something like that.

    Flynn in a hurry. Either that or C Martin, Bates and Bartlett just aren't much of a challenge after Steyn, Morkel and Philander.

    AnuWag.

    If you said he'd pick up his first FC wicket at the age of 22 five years ago you would've been laughed at. He's had a few injury problems tbf but still, crazy that it's taken this long. Serious bowler and very handy with the bat (as he showed during one of the televised 20/20 games)

    Glad to see Flynn opening too, best place for him.

    After complaining about this, Raval scores 54, Flynn 78* and Rutherford 90*. Pity Gillespie couldn't pick up a bag to show he's fit and firing too (he's probably not though).

    I thought you were dubious about him opening? I'm sure you've posted something to that effect.

    I was wondering what guys like Southee, Boult, Williamson etc averaged in the Plunket Shield. So I did a bit of research and came up with some of our best 25 and under cricketers:

    Kane Williamson (22): 1753 @ 60.44 + 34 @ 37.55
    Collin Munro (25): 1108 @ 58.31 + 25 @ 33.12
    Craig Cachopa (21): 469 @ 52.11
    Hamish Rutherford (23): 1157 @ 38.57
    Jeet Raval (24): 2021 @ 38.13
    Will Young (20): 376 @ 37.60

    Matt Henry (21): 37 @ 18.51
    Tim Southee (24): 87 @ 23.11
    Trent Boult (23): 73 @ 24.39
    Dean Bartlett (25): 21 @ 24.85
    Adam Milne (20): 29 @ 26.41
    Ben Wheeler (21): 36 @ 28.47
    Bevan Small (20): 17 @ 28.52

    Pretty good list for the bowlers.

    ****ing typical. Pick Houghton and then he's (at the earliest) 6th bowler.
