    BTW. Aldridge passed 300 FC wicketsin the last round without many people noticing. Huge achievement.

    Has Fletcher moved or is he just playing for ND while still playing for ECB?

    Quite satisfying to see the three teams that looked quality at the start of the season come through and occupy the top 3 spots on the Plunket Shield ladder.

    Wellington, Canterbury and Auckland need to lift their game.

    Article - Auckland Cricket

    Leg spinning all-rounder Brad Schmulian is the new name in the Aces line-up for their last round Plunket Shield match against Canterbury starting tomorrow.

    Didn't even get to see him bat (he wasn't at the crease long enough).

    So, Houghton might get a game for Wellington down in Nelson then? Fingers crossed.

    3:25 is where the second new ball starts. The yorker at 2.50 was reverse. Gillespie also got it reversing out with the older ball.

    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.
    There isn't one. As someone who was in the setup at 16/17/18 in academies in Auckland, all we could muster up to develop us was Dipak Patel, and with all respect to him, he just never really did it for me (or most of the spinners tbh). Then came Paul Strang, who on paper really looked like a guy who would help develop you, especially being a leggie, but once he holds a grudge you can bid farewell to him even caring remotely for you.

    Its an Auckland problem, highlighted by the fact our best players (not just spin, batsman, as well) seem to know who the "IN" crowd is when it comes to first class cricket.

    Another point is how spinners are managed and captained. Speaking very generally, the role of the spinner in NZ is to contain, and as long as T20 and limited overs cricket takes a priority in this country, a matchwinning spinner is long way off.
    The world just doesn't understand leg spin

    Ditto for Immenso and any exceptional Dean Bartlett deliveries.

    yeah, got the time wrong.

    Gosh, it's hard not to get excited about Southee and Boult vs the English batsmen.

    Do doubt they will have done their preparation, but it really is amazing how much of a better bowler Southee's become in the last 12 months.

    Thanks, that quite interesting.

    I think our best bet is to take a lot more of these bowlers on tour and get them working with specialists while they're over there. Whether it was Buchanan who sorted out Vaas and co for the SL tour, it was a great idea and I hope they continue with it.

    Well before taking them on tour, we need some sort of fundamental base here for spinners that clearly show potential and stick with them. The unfortunate thing is that quality batsman, and seamers usually will always come but to find a replacement spinner requires patience, a trait which isnt even remotely considered when it comes to actually dealing with spinners, a quick look over at Australias problem is a perfect example of this.

    I must say the encouragement towards a young spinner is definitely better, with the likes of Ish getting an opportunity that a few years back wouldn't even be considered. New Zealand's lack of resources and in general, knowledge of spin bowling is not helping either and there alwasy seems to be an emphasis on coaches tryna coach the "right" way to bowl spin from a technical standpoint, rather than the right way to go about bowling spin in terms of the mentality and general differences a spinner faces in the game of cricket than your average bat.

    Back to the captaincy and a point I forgot to mention, and how important that role is, you just have to look back at how Daniel Vettori was handled by Stephen Fleming to show you what a great captain can get out of his spinner when he understands their role and position. You can see it slowly happening with Michael Clarke as well.

    A spinner is only as good as his captain allows him to be, which is often forgotten, and unfortunately Jeetan Patel is a product of this.
