    Congrats CD. Deserving winners.

    Surprised that Wellington took out Otago. Will watch with interest when highlights available to see how Gillespie bowled.

    Wagner 2-56 and 4-92

    Gillespie 1-111 and 4-50

    So honours even, they go to sudden death shoot out in Queenstown.

    Well, considering 115kph outswing just took a triple-wicket maiden against Auckland in first-class, good Hawke Cup figures certainly aren't a reliable stamp of impending high quality.

    If Shanan Stewart and Doug Bracewell played a season of Hawke Cup together, both would average about 20 with the ball I'd imagine.

    Yeah, it's just great that CD produces so much homegrown talent like Cachopa, Raval, Lamb, Mathieson, Nethula and van Wyk aye?

    Looked up the stats, 8 different bowlers took a first class 5-fer this season for CD. Assume this is a record.

    Went to Karori Park today to watch the Wellington club cricket 20:20 Final - Karori vs. Taita.

    None of the big names performed, really. In fact, all the first classers on action were a let down.

    Was an entertaining match though - went right down to the wire.

I'm not too sure whether Strang rated Ish or not to be fair to Strang, but you have to wonder whats up when Tarun was leading wickettaker a few season back, the next season he hardly got a bowl.

    Strang has his favourites, thats just how it is really and its why there was such an exodus regarding young Auckland talent leaving for other opportunities. Obviously its hard in Auckland where the depth supersedes that of any other district due in part to the obvious population difference, but there is also something to be said when you look at the ages of the guys leaving (Neesham, Fuller, Raval, Cachopas (and to think Craig only got a contract due to the luck that was Tuffey's retirement) Ish, etc) are all guys who happen to come across Strangs reign.

    Im obviously sounding bias and almost bitter (do not like Strang, point blank) but when you talk to these guys about why they were not given an opportunity, there really wasnt a decent reason given by Auckland Cricket. It's of no surprise now that you see guys like Michael Barry, Guptill-Bunce etc all getting a run now because Matt Horne is already establishing a nice core of young players who are ready to make that step.
    Question for you - should there be two Auckland sides - maybe a North Harbour team for instance.

    I have no doubts that a 7 team FC structure wouldn't work but ignoring that should there be two auckland teams based on what you say,
    I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowd
    one day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.

    Auckland could easily do it, especially if you were to give them Northland for example. As you say though there would be zero point in doing it, already far to many ****e cricketers playing first class cricket as it is.

    Ha, every one of the six bowlers Taita used are products of St Pats Silverstream. Henry Walsh and Chris Tait are too, at least 8 of the 11. Should just rename that club Stream Old Boys.

    I see Jamie How actually managed a decent season average of 40 in the end with a decent late run.

    I never would have thought, when he was dropped 5 or do years ago, that he wouldn't be back in the team again within a year or so after sorting himself out with a bit of domestic cricket. It's very disappointing, but he just hasn't put any pressure on the selectors saying "pick me".
