    Just got around to watching the Wellington second innings wickets...

    Ryder.... not sure whether to just laugh, or feel vaguely insulted by it.

    Lovely yorker from Fuller to clean up one of the tail-enders.

    Not far away from giving up on Ryder tbh. He'll probably be 29 by the time he returns. With his past injury problems, he's probably only got four years left, and I doubt he'll be a regular starter during that time period either.

    It's just really sad that he's got so much talent but can't apply it for NZ. I was travelling through Rotorua over the Christmas break. I was tempted to track down the busy bodies who told him off for drinking after the ODI against SA last year and then told the media about it. They and Craig McMillan have a lot to answer for.

    Craig Cachopa slipping under the radar a bit this year, I didn't think he was much chop after seeing him play for Wellington, but is getting a great record together. Auckland actually has some young talent..

    Yeah, I saw him get out cheaply in a T20 last season and thought the same. He's done really well back in Auckland though. Auckland has loads of young talent, a lot of it now in other provinces.

    Nope. He played Auckland U-19s and made a big century in one of the games at the national tournament but didn't make the NZ squad for the 2001/02 World Cup, which surprised me at the time as he obviously had a big reputation and had then put runs on the board at the tournament.

    He has played club cricket ever since and I regularly see him making big runs.

    I'm no talent scout and I can't claim to know a FC standard cricketer when I see one, but the things he has done (like the U-18 season I mentioned) seem pretty extraordinary to me. I can only guess it's off-field stuff and rubbing people the wrong way that has held him back.

    Disclaimer: I don't know the guy, have only vaguely followed his career and am no expert. However I have previous as I touted Tarun Nethula (who is also 29) for years after playing him at school- it took him until his mid-20s to play FC cricket but he quickly made the Black Caps

    Hopefully he can cement his place in the Auckland line up now with that hundred. I remember Anaru Kitchen burst onto the scene a few years ago, what's happened to him?

    That 2002 WC squad was one of the better ones.

    Ross Taylor (captain, Central Districts)
    Simon Allen (Wellington)
    Michael Bates (Auckland)
    Peter Borren (Canterbury)
    Neil Broom (Canterbury)
    Leighton Burtt (Canterbury)
    Brook Hatwell (Northern Districts)
    Stephen Murdoch (Wellington)
    Rob Nicol (Auckland)
    Iain Robertson (Canterbury)
    Jesse Ryder (Central Districts)
    Ian Sandbrook (Central Districts)
    Jordan Sheed (Otago)
    Richard Sherlock (Central Districts)

    Coach: Mark Greatbatch
    Manager: Dayle Hadlee

    Players in the original 24-player preliminary squad:

    Scott Baldwin (Central Districts)
    Geoff Barnett (Central Districts)
    James Bullick (Auckland)
    Greg Cates (Auckland)
    Craig Clare (Central Districts)
    Fraser Hawes (Canterbury)
    Greg Hay (Central Districts)
    Robbie Schaw (Central Districts)
    Lance Shaw (Auckland)

    Note: Simon Allen, Peter Borren, Neil Broom and Leighton Burtt were not part of the preliminary squad.

    We'll be right. Every Shield season a rookie comes in and dominates for a few games. I'm backing us to harness the power of the rookie to hold us together if our first string attack isn't fit.

    You'll be harnessing Stevie Smidt and Badenhorst. "Giddy up!" - Ronchi.

    While his teammates enjoyed a beer Patel sipped fizzy drinks but the six-wicket ball will take pride of place at his home home.
    Yeah, you know what paper it is...

    It's Wellington. They could field Bradman reincarnate and still find a way to lose. They almost gave Devcich a 20/20 hundred.

    No, we're finished for this season FC-wise actually. Wgtn have to look forward to domination of the Ford Trophy now, the perk of "not producing anything" as Howsie would say.

    Even Franky looking like he'll play some games, Sam Wells flummoxing Ronchi with some fairly gentle inswingers I noticed. #number7update.
