    Small completely outperformed Bracewell there. It'll be interesting to see how Verma goes with the ball.

    His test record isn't quite as bad tbf. Still, he's going to need to improve if he's going to keep his place in the test side. There's plenty of guys averaging in the mid-20s in the Plunket Shield in that 20-22 age range.

    Have you been watching today?

    Verma has picked up the only wicked to fall in Otago's innings.

    Great to see Small getting wickets, even if he is carrying an injury.

    Rutherford in the runs again, 68*. I reckon he will either be out for 75 early tomorrow, 90 odd, or get a big one. Then back it up with a 5 in the second innings (Big fan of the guy, just seems the way he's working atm).

    And precisely how many of them can stay fit again? Even Bevan Small is battling a niggling rib injury at the moment. Milne and Wheeler have been out since X-mas. Henry hasn't played an fc match in 12 months. Unless Gillespie suddenly rediscovers his form of last season I really don't think Bracewell's position is under threat.

    I don't really care about a niggling rib injury, or a one/two-month injury. I'm talking long-term here. If all of Henry, Small, Wheeler, Milne, Verma etc continue performing to the same standard they have so far in their short careers, of course one of them will come through and threaten Bracewell's spot. Heck, if Bracewell doesn't improve his first-class bowling average of 37 he'll end up losing his spot to Ian ****ing Butler.

    Haha, yeah. Not sure anyone maintaining a Jacob Duffy parody Twitter account can really answer a national call-up in good faith, so we'll see.

    Bond would probably see quite a lot of his own nature in Mitch tbh. Earnest 26 y.o. without a great domestic record Mitch, bullied as a child, bowled valiantly through the serious pain of his injuries, now lives on little more than broccoli and idolises Chris Martin's way of life, he's just that earnest. Versus Doug, the cruising, abrasive jock, actually expelled for bullying, nicknamed NASA for his mental capacity.

    Awesome recovery Wellington. Checked the score earlier today at 1/140 and thought we were going to be facing another huge score. Did very well to skittle them out for 329. Boam WAG.
    Direbirds FTW!

    Where do you learn all this **** Kippax? Or are you just the worlds greatest tall story machine?

    CdG got out in such an awkward way today.

    All of what I said has been reported, except I'm assuming it's Butler with the Twitter thing. Someone senior in the team with the scope for irony, not Wells or Neesh.

    Redmond would be the other option, he seems like a character

    CD to set Auckland a 370 in 100 overs chase here. Otherwise, Otago probably level-pegging with matches against cbf girthy cats Auckland and Wellington in hand.

    Raval passing 50 and failing to ton up again. He's really changed from his old days when he was basically McIntosh 2.0.

    Rutherford taking full toll of a seriously understrength ND bowling attack. He has a serious chance to do a Munro here and book his place in the national side by virtue of one enormous score.
