NZ A throwing away wickets recklessly and India A are pretty happy about it. Young's innings was awful. Rutherford looked pretty good - a little edgy early but from the bits I saw was good after that. Picking him to outscore Latham this season. Long batting lineup with Woodcock and Wells at 7 & 8. Brownlie still there and obviously trying to play himself into some form.
Haha Kippax, those Woodcock appeals looked very much out, especially the first one.
It does make the selection of the side easier though.
Worst shot I saw him play was a forward defence to a ball chest high.
Anyway give him a year and he will be a black cap. If he averages 40 this season in FC they will call him up.
I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowdOverrated XI Warner, Burns, Steve Smith, Rahane, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaulone day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.
Thanks Daemon. Yep he chopped on Boult coming around the wicket with a ball too close to cut, also not exactly Mark Waugh off his pads I've noticed. Goes nuts from third man through cover on his tour's wagon wheel as you'd expect.
Decent effort from Brownlie to get New Zealand past the follow-on, although tbh he kinda had to, given how badly he shafted Rutherford yesterday.
He must know no matter how well he does in this series, there's no chance he's going to Sri Lanka. And they're going to have issues with him in the future when it comes to the turning ball and sub-continent tracks - or any decent spinner anywhere.
I saw Brownlie was sent for a ten-day stint in India recently for a crash course in playing spin. Haven't seen enough to know if it's worked. I think Brownlie could have a future in the NZ side however this is the first time he's scored any runs since being dropped - there were another handful of failures earlier this series. Scores tend to suggest it's a pretty flat deck here too.
