    - Most people on this forum, me included, are primarily interested in the national team and therefore tend to view all domestic cricket primarily as a breeding ground for international-level players. This is fine - we want to see NZ do well and improve, though sometimes this viewpoint can lead to being overly dismissive of domestic-level players.

    - Top level domestic cricket can also be seen as important in of itself. For some (most, actually) of the people playing, it will be the pinnacle of their careers and if so, well done to them. Particularly those who have gotten there through hard work and have reached somewhere near the limit of their ability. They've dedicated a significant period of time to the game and it's not like they'd be getting much financial reward or anything like that from it. So like Immenso says, someone like Arnel who came back from serious injury, turns up every season and takes plenty of wickets deserves to be applauded. Same for plenty of others. Sometimes it's easy to forget this just because we want good future NZ players.
    While I probably started following domestic cricket with the intl game in mind. These days it is probably my most satisfying cricket following experience with video available (after maybe The Ashes). 10 matches; 5 home games, 5 away games, deserving winner at the end. None of this crappy under-prepared 2 match test series in monsoons that is the lot of NZ test cricket.

    Has provincial captaincy become a curse?

    Murdoch, Wilson, D de Boorder this year have struggled.
    Last year; Redmond (got dropped), Elliott, A de Boorder (dropped by Xmas), How .....all had shockers

    'Tightness' and 'won't wicketkeep' Bidwell says this morning, more than likely he's completely buried his lead though, more taken with the great bravery shown by Jeets and Kuggs -

    Could be an exciting day today in the Plunket Shield.

    Otago should finish off Wellington who have just a 185 run lead with 1 wicket in hand. Pretty sure that means that CD need to beat ND - they look likely but James Marshall could yet be an unlikely hero for Otago.

    Favourite bits

    Patel's recent struggles against fast bowling have been painful to watch and Otago made every effort to make him relive them yesterday. Neil Wagner, who reportedly peppered Patel in the Port Elizabeth nets while the two were touring South Africa with the Black Caps, tried more of the same at the Basin Reserve.
    Jeets now clearly experienced at facing PACE bowlers that are trying to hit him. 54*

    Kuggeleijn's own knock was top drawer, confirming his status as an emerging all-rounder. His season average now sits in excess of 40 and he was equally stoic in the face of some hostile bowling from Wagner.

    "I like to think I'd never back down to that sort of stuff. I prefer to get hurt and keep batting than look like a pussy and get out," he said.

    How strong is the Hawke Cup?

    I ask as Matt Woods, who's an Oxfordshire lad, seems to be tearing it up with the ball for South Canterbury (4/25 & 4/24 v North Otago, 2/88 v Southland, 6/19 & 4fer v Mid Canterbury, and 4fer today v Otago Country).

    Not a done deal for Otago ...

    "OTAGO VOLTS require 75 runs to win with 4 wickets in hand and 56.5 overs remaining"

    Otago have lost.

    Well done CD, winning 6/9 deserved the Trophy. Strange bowling stats for CD this season, 22 wickets highest tally up to date, 9 different bowlers have made significant contributions to their wins.
