    Big day for Daryl Mitchell today, first FC century. Didn't throw it away when batting with the tail, ND total went from 7-400 and first innings parity when Southee was out, to 510 when Mitchell was last man out, giving what appears to be a match-winning 110 run first innings lead.

    Craig Cachopa now ahead of Cooled Cachopa in Plunket runs, making for confusion at the selection meeting. Rutherford it is then.

    They'll just announce C Cachopa at the presser and let them figure it out between themselves.

    Timmeh picks up 9 on his return, even if they did come at a fairly expensive rate.

    Sodhi nice 4 wicket bag - maybe a Vettori style bolter for England test series?

    No, he'll probably go to India on that September A tour, and even that's a bit of a stretch. Would be like putting a kid who's shanking every third shot into a PGA Tour event, at this stage.

    There are a few promising young spinners around. Sodhi is one of them, Nethula looks decent at times, and I believe that there are more on the fringes of first class teams from what I've been hearing.

    Question is, how do we prevent these players from becoming Bruce Martin? I ask that with complete respect to the guy, good stalwart and all, but looking back at a 10 year career it doesn't set the world on fire. same can probably be said of Jeets - has a nice action, a good stock delivery, just never really developed beyond that level.

    It just seems as though the pitches and the domestic coaching will never let us get these guys beyond promising. Hopefully Littlejohn and Buchanan think outside the box on this one. Can we send them to Sri Lanka for a season or something?

    I wouldn't be opposed to this but I don't see them picking a young leggie, they are too hit and miss.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Daryl Mitchell, 136 vs. Wellington - YouTube Who are these ****s who gave Brodie when he was massively outside the line playing a shot, when they'd denied Jeets important wickets?

    Howsie correct about his prowess on the pull and hook. Not that it is a suprise, for a guy who had formative years growing up in Perth.

    Looked good, congratulations Darryl on your first ton.

    Either Brodie has had a few rough ones this year, or he is good at looking aggrieved. I have noticed a few 'can't-believe-it' delays before he leaves. Including when also out to Sodhi last time they played, bat-pad, at Karori.

    Good return by Kuggeleijn, after being dropped for a few matches. I reckon Siddons is better off rotating 2 of Tugaga, Firday, and Kuggeleijn to partner Gillespie. Which is what he might be doing now anyway. With no decent 'A' cricket provided by Wellington, it is a big step from club cricket to back-to-back 4 day cricket for these guys (as Siddons has mentioned in the Dom).

    So Friday in for Tugaga next round ......

    How is Bruce Martin the example here? Probably the best performed NZ domestic spinner of his era. Would love to actually have a few more Bruce Martin's who can at least perform to a competent standard at domestic level, rather than picking blokes for international level who are proven failures at domestic level.

    Sorry, probably not the best example as I don't often follow domestic cricket.

    Sub for whoever you think is more appropriate.

    There needs to be some plan for how we develop the promising spinners. I don't think there's enough expertise in the country ATM.
