    I like Mattress, but it's Papps (I dunno if I've ever heard of Murdoch). If he is allowed to milk 5 an over during the middle overs without ever having their wicket threatened...We can do better, basically.
    Murdoch has been building quite an impressive record over the last few seasons and seems to be back in form after early struggles this season after becoming captain. He rose to prominence after scoring 225 not out off 157 balls in a 50 over Under 23 game a few years ago.

    Stephen Murdoch’s name was on every cricket followers lips In January after his commanding match winning 225 not out off just 157 balls to help the Powerade Wellington U23s to an exhilarating 50-over win over their Auckland annual counterparts at the inaugural National U23 tournament at Lincoln.

    Chasing 356 for victory, Murdoch batted beautifully to guide us to a hugely satisfying 3-wicket win with 5 balls to spare. Starting off slowly he then exploded and his innings eventually included 156 runs in boundaries. He cleared the boundary rope to hit the winning runs off the first ball of the last over.

    The double century for Murdoch came hot on the heels of his scores of 79 and 156 against Otago in the three-day tournament opener earlier in the week. In four innings he scored 498 runs, using this tournament as a springboard to forcing his way into the Wellington Firebirds for the remainder of the season.

    Yep, was clocked at 149k in the HRV cup. He's still bowling utter rubbish too.

    Excellent chase by Wellington. Should get the 55 from 48 required from here. I'm amazed Papps has had such a good season - really seemed a spent force a little while ago.

    Yeah, it's a bit like how Elliott is playing useful innings for NZ just a couple of months after we were advocating his Wellington dropping.

    Why is he called 'Mattress'? For the obvious reasons? Or something more subtle and witty, and less laddish and puerile?

    Great win for Welly. Pleased to see Murdoch in the runs and at a decent clip as well.

    He is getting his runs quicker than I ever remember as well. The evergreen Michael Papps.

    Saw him at Countdown the other day after a hundred, looked like he was still in his early 20's!

    Shame Mitchell missed a hundred, but an exciting first day of list A matches. Am I the only one who loves 1 dayers? They are a great mix of the other formats, in T/20 you have a couple bad overs and you'r screwed. I like the balance you get in 50 over games.

    Cachopa, gun. Never thought I would say that after last season for Wellington, really battled. Good on him, still very young, but we really are light on young batters coming through. Him, Rutherford, Latham, Young, Mitchell, Boam and Anderson are carrying the next hope really.

    I like the balance you get in 50 over games too. M Bracewell is another young batsman who has done reasonably well this season..

    he's tall with long levers, yet seems to just flick his wrists and it goes for six.

    I watched him warm up with throwdowns and he times everything. Minimal effort and the ball races from his bat.

    One to watch next season.

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

    I realise the match was all but over and didn't matter, but surely that struck a good 15cm outside offstump.

    Have seen a fair few suspect lbw calls this season on the video scorecards tbh

    Flynn's lbw surely pitched outside leg too.

    Way back for Flynn into NZ team might be to score one-day runs - we're short of ODI openers at the moment and he doesn't have the same unfortunate 'tried and failed' air in limited overs as tests.
