    I like the look of Wheeler more than any of the other young quicks at the moment.

    Apologies to Albi for reminding him of Bono and U2 there. PM me any riffs that you wouldn't mind hearing at 120% tempo. 120% gets it past Youtube's sniffer dogs.
    Loving the shape Milne's getting there. Every other time I've seen him he's been gun-barrel straight. Looks like he's bulked up a bit too.

    He looks closer to full fitness now, but honestly he's unlikely to stay that way for long.

    Cricket: T20, sharp captaincy key to ND success | Hawke's Bay Today

    CD will have seamer Bevan Small back in the mix with Adam Milne nursing a quad strain.

    Carl Cachopa returns from NZ XI duties although Bradburn says Corey Anderson isn't in his equation tomorrow.

    William Young's poor form cost him a place in CD's matrix.

    "You have to try to take wickets and Bevan will do that," CD coach Alan Hunt said, adding he was also a classy fielder and a useful tailend batsman.

    CD STAGS: Jamie How, Jeet Raval, Carl Cachopa, Mathew Sinclair, Kieran Noema-Barnett, Kruger van Wyk, Tarun Nethula, Bevan Small, Marty Kain, Ben Wheeler, Andrew Mathieson.

    ND KNIGHTS: Daniel Flynn, Anton Devcich, James Marshall (c), Cameron Fletcher (wk), Brett Hampton, Daryl Mitchell, Brad Wilson, Jonno Boult, Graeme Aldrige, Brent Arnel, Anuragh Verma, Jono Hickey.

    Good to see Small & Wheeler playing at least. Did you find any video highlights of Anderson's NZ XI innings against England?

    Wow, Milne is amazing. Normally if a player is consistently out injured, it's because of a recurring injury and/or general lack of fitness. But Milne just keeps finding new ways to get injured.

    Really feel for him. Must be really difficult to stay motivated towards getting back to match fitness when you know you're just likely to get injured again a few weeks later.

    Just remembered this post I made from March 2010.

    Cricket | Ryder likely to stay 'death' option for... | Stuff.co.nz

    "It will be Franky's call but there were good reasons to use Jesse," Kerr said.

    "He was comfortably one of our best death bowlers in the T20 and if you are looking for someone to bowl straight and full then he is one of our best."

    Kerr said both he and Firebirds coach Jamie Siddons wanted Ryder to do the job.

    "He was a bit unlucky. There was a French cut (inside edge) that went for four and he just missed his length on the last ball and Mills got hold of it."

    Franklin will have better bowling options at his disposal tomorrow following the return of Mark Gillespie and Jeetan Patel.

    They came into the 12 for Ili Tugaga and Mark Houghton, who was unavailable because of work commitments.

    The other change is injury enforced with top order batsman Stephen Murdoch (quad) replaced by Josh Brodie.

    Tom Blundell remains behind the stumps due to Luke Ronchi's tight hamstring.

    He should improve as he gets older and stronger. He has a good action so it's just a case of getting his body through the tough early 20s. Isn't is said pacemen have most of their injury problems in their late teens - early twenties before getting going in their mid twenties?

    If we repeat this enough it will come true

    Still, that leaves 3-4 more years of frustration for the 5 or so young promising fast bowlers that are mentioned frequently on this forum.

    I certainly welcome the sound of a CD Wide Cricket Plan. Hopefully they're sick of ND cutting their lunch in terms of being a genuinely enthused and communicative association.

    Henry knocks over Kitchen with a ripper. Has taken 8 wickets so far this season at about 8.5.

    Henry 3/9 off 5.1 now. Just too good it seems.
