    Hey Wells is batting at 5 for Otago - this is new. Rutherford on 162* - if he continues with this prolific form it's going to be hard for NZ selectors to ignore him (though I'd suggest leaving him alone for another 12 months).

    Auckland's bowling attack looks rather pedestrian to me, even if they bowled out CD cheaply in the first innings (there were some horrific shots). I still don't think Bruce Martin would be a very good selection for NZ either.

    Love 2gaga's bowling action.

    Is it really understrength? Doesn't have Southee or Boult but ND wouldn't expect to have them these days. Arnel is good, Verma was excellent last match and Baker and Sodhi have their moments - doesn't look bad to me. Certainly better than Canterbury's, Auckland's and perhaps CD's attacks at the moment.

    Verma has only had one match and looks seriously pedestrian once he runs out of puff. Ish is still pretty average at this stage of his career, and Baker is just filler. Also missing Aldridge which is a big blow for them. Its not a poor bowling attack, but its a long way off ND's usual standards.

    I don't buy that. Arnel, Aldridge and Baker was the attack for most of last season and probably the last few years with a random spinner being invovled and occasionally Trent Boult. It's a reasonable attack, and Verma with the new ball has a higher ceiling than others they've played this season.

    Not saying Rutherford is an amazing player, but 150 against that attack is a decent effort. Only CD and Otago can claim better in this round.

    Btw I know he took 5fer at Eden Park so great effort but how floaty does Small look this season? Last year he hit the deck pretty hard and at brisk pace but this season the ball just seems to be gliding along the deck. Byproduct of the injury he's carrying I guess?

    Hope Sodhi rips through Otago now that Broom is out.

    Murdoch finally scoring some runs. A couple of 40s last game and 56* at the moment. Ryder meanwhile scoring at his usual run-a-ball pace, 65 off 66 atm. I suppose it's promising that there's only nine 4s and no 6s so far though?

    L Ferguson is 12th man for Auckland. Isn't he the guy Doull was working with a while back on The Cricket Show?

    Yeah we've talked about Small being open-chested and spearing it in more. Still see a bit of that Fielding lad heavy ball stuff at times.

    Murdoch WAG. Need someone to hang around with him though as Woodcock goes.

    It's interesting that Ronchi-tonk Badonkadonk has moved to number 6 for Wellington. Maybe a move to show off his batting with a goal to making it into the NZ team?

    With his recent form, half an Elliott and the presence of allrounders in Boam and Kuggs it makes a lot of sense.

    No, the 'Pollard to No. 3 in first-class!' idea didn't work out so good. Ronchi really had to bat at six here.

    A pair of taciturn bubble boys at the crease shepherding CD towards a draw, itstl. Maybe they're thinking a 300 off 60 overs type chase may be the go, turn Auckland's desperation for points into their undoing.
