Marto injured. Ryder, batting at 7 again and another shot for the '****s I give' video scrapbook.
Brilliant comeback from BOP in the Hawke Cup. They lost on first innings so have to win outright to retain it. Good work by Goodin and Carter today, and Hampton throughout the match. Outstanding game.
What a spoon-worthy lukewarm chase this is by Wellington. Did they not realise that chasing 266 in 50 is actually harder than it sounds, and needed a Ronchi promotion to have any chance.
Yeah hard luck Manawatu. Badenhorst at 4, Milne as a specialist bat, they were pushing their luck tbf. Kane's old school-mate Brett Hampton should get some Ford Trophy play for ND I'd wager.
Joe Carter must be pushing pretty hard for a spot too.
Also Hickey, Nick Kelly, numerous other ****s. Should enlarge Auckland's catchment to include Counties tbh.
Ronchi out with a hammy injury, 4-6 weeks. Big shame, would have had him batting 7 for the tests.
Marto has broken down as well. Gillespie 11 wickets.. I'd give him 1 more game to prove himself and fitness, and if he looks the goods get him in the squad.
You're probably right, I reckon the batting line up should be something like this;
Why would Mac moving to 5 effect Ronchi's potential selection?
Anyway, a shame. He must have been putting a lot of pressure on the selectors. 4 tons this season? Very impressive.
