    Tuggs comes on and finally gets Redmond out. I seem to remember similar patterns all season.
    Struck me as a very stange appointment when it was first made...

    This guy: Henry Skipper | Cricket Players and Officials | ESPN Cricinfo

    Only played in the same team as him when he was in his 40s, but he still oozed class.

    I assume he played in Wellington?

    Best Guy I played with (once or twice), but mostly saw at training and when our games finished early was Ben Jansen, managed one List A game for Wellington, but was consistently one of the better bowlers and batsmen in Wellington Club cricket for 5 years, never got a run in a first class game.

    Yeah. I've played with and against a number of guys who played at least Hawke Cup for Hutt Valley, but without going through all their names, I'm not sure who did and didn't play at least one or two first class matches.

    About a year ago, I made my wicket keeping debut, and we were short a few players. Sunnie Chan rocked up to play for us, it was a pretty good way to get the keeping skills up to scratch! It was only grade 2A, hands were a bit sore for a week

    Still reckon he gets it through at a fair pace. Might have to dial it back a bit to get some semblance of accuracy though.
    Fatal misconception RE pace and accuracy here. Slowing down most likely won't improve his radar, working on his action will.

    Alright fine then

    You can 'dial the pace back a bit' to help improve accuracy if you already have a controlled and repeatable action. Which I agree Ferguson does not.

    Just look like he's trying to bowl as fast as physically possible.

    Was literally just about to post the exact same comment.

    Durg is in seriously good form with the bat this season for seedy.

    I suppose we can spin it and say how positive it is for Canterbury that their second string bowling attack and their newfound star part timer can put a FC side under so much pressure.

    After reading CharlesLara's posts though Strang needs to be shipped out and some bridges need to be mended because while it's a good thing Auckland have produced so many FC standard players, their own side has suffered due to all the exporting.

    Could the Auckland Export XI challenge the hometowners?

    Strang is stepping down at the end of the season and can't be long until Hopkins retires either, so there will have to be a rebuilding process.

    It's pretty unforgivable to let some of those guys go. If Strang or whoever couldn't see potential first-class performers in those guys, he has no idea what he's doing.
