    In other news, Otago $5.50, did anyone else get on?

    Phlegm can't even beat that Wizards attack at McLean Park, that's terrible. Jarvis and Taylor leave after the next round, trouble brewing.

    Yes although I haven't seen highlights, scoring 18(13) with 2 fours and a six before being bowled by Soper again tells the story.

    Getting to the point where I don't think he should be in the NZ test side even if available. Hit and giggle maybe, but not tests.

    Well done to Mike Bracewell on his first FC ton, and making it a big one. He's had a few 90s before IIRc so sure it's a bit of a relief . Watched the boundaries in the video scorecard, loved that high elbow when driving the quicks.

    Anyone know what happened to Bartlett?

    Bruce Martin bowled 43 overs in a day ( 50 odd in the innings), trooper.

    CD's newest spinner appears to be having a good game.

    Mathieson only bowling 8 overs, even if expensive, is worrying. I hope he isn't another addition to the injury list.

    Ajaz Patel 6/57 while Nethula picks up a measly 1/81. Patel has a nice bowling action though can only see one of his wickets so far on the blackcaps site.

    Holy **** just checked the Hawke Cup scores.

    When was the last time a side racked up 680 in a three day match?

    edit: make that 690 and counting

    Not at all. Not saying he doesn't have a solid technique, but at least in theory he should be ideally suited to T20. Freakish talent, just look at the highlights of his century...wandering around the crease and just smashing the seamers, across the line, on the up, whatever.

    If anyone has the Cricket Almanac from, I think, the 1999/2000 season, they devoted a section to him. He was playing U-18s cricket for Waitakere and had an extraordinary season of making centuries at a 200+ strike-rate, which I believe included a triple-century in a single afternoon.

    He's probably the classic example of a slightly unconventional but entirely obvious talent (Polynesian, not from a private school, perhaps not totally devoted to cricket, not mates with the selectors...) who hasn't been utilised and perhaps hasn't done himself any favours.

    Has he had a few injuries or something? Seems strange he's only just started FC at the age of 29 if he was doing those things at a young age, even if he wasn't completely devoted to the sport.
