NZC does have a track record of making people feel welcome tbf.
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.
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..
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

@RossLTaylor long day of abuse

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

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.
Lockie, eh. Will probably play Quinn. Mathieson to enjoy the bounce, Small probably back as well.
The 13 from which a team will be named for Wednesday’s game is as follows:
Gareth Hopkins (Captain) (Parnell)
Michael Bates (Suburbs New Lynn)
Craig Cachopa (Takapuna)
Colin de Grandhomme (Howick Pakuranga)
Lockie Ferguson (Parnell)
Michael Guptill-Bunce (Cornwall)
Dusan Hakaraia (Grafton United)
Tim McIntosh (Parnell)
Bruce Martin (Parnell)
Chris Martin (Parnell)
