    Whilst it's not quite the classical statistical definition of an All-Rounder, if you consider they'll probably both be in the top 6-most sides would take it!

    Cheers for that bit more inside track on Horne and O'Donnell too, Steve. My impressions were similar from stats and the tiny bit of U19 WC action I saw them in. Both look top class in their age group, and seeing as my DB has U19's and 2nd XI cricket, I want as many youngsters with potential in there as I can get reliable info on. Let me know if there's any other top prospects there.

    My impressions of Horne as a good fielder are mainly formed from a clip earlier on this thread! I guess his bowling could be handy too-future Rob Nicol type maybe? Dunno if that's a good thing, mind..

    As for the Auckland bowling attack, if they go for that top 7 (with de Boorder and Parlane playing if needed), I assume the bowling places would be:

    8-Mills (when available)
    9-Martin
    10-Bates
    11-McClenaghan

    -unless they go for two spinners again, which is a slight gamble with Colin's as 3rd and 4th seamers IMO.

    Backup seam option most likely Bartlett I assume. What's the buzz about Ferguson (impressive A's figures last season) and Quinn (is he really "Fast" as the (usually wrong) sources imply)?

    I do like Bates, and always wonder why he doesn't get a better crack at International level. At least over Arnell and McKay. The mistaken link on his Cricinfo profile also always gives me a chuckle: Michael Bates | Cricket Players and Officials | ESPN Cricinfo

    I'd guess that Adams might do his usual T20/OD job with the odd Plunkett appearance, but that may be in doubt if Vincent is still classed as the designated foreigner? I know which of the two I'd be picking, given the choice..

    Hmm, I'd actually find that tough. On balance Adams is much more likely to produce a killer spell against the domestix in early rounds than Lou is to produce a match-winning (rather than breezy) knock, but without Lou Auckland's batting really develops a barnyard look to it.

    Ferguson featured on a weekly segment on our Cricket Show last season, the idea being to see his pace and action progress and see if he could clock 145.

    No, Quinn's not fast at all -

    Here's Horne batting, as Steve said a good eye and has bravely gone for his shots against 140+ pace, albeit with a farm-fresh technique. Maybe not this year, but he'll no doubt use that pick-up pull and his lofted flicks to good effect at Eden Park in good time.

    Hee hee, so Ferguson not exactly "medium" as Cricinfo would have us believe, then? More like RF to RFM?

    Great links, as ever.


    Quinn probably more like MF?

    Can anyone fill me in on how did that go in the end? I saw few of the episodes, but not the final result.
    I actually found it reasonably interesting, with the crossover coaching from the Javelin thrower and sprinting coach etc

    No I didn't see the final episode myself!

    RFM a fairly safe bet for actual match pace I guess. Quinn was clocked in that U19 semi, mid 120's. Duffy 130-135 tops, Nuttall 130.

    CCDB, join the fanzone and then try to follow the video I'm about to PM to you to use the video vault at your leisure btw.

    Good stuff with the pace ranges. One thing I try to do is be lenient with youngsters who might put on a yard as they develop, so I'll consider that with the ratings. Makes you wonder where some people get their classifications from! Maybe somebody dropped the folder that was full of all the young seamers pace ratings and they all got jumbled up..

    Signed up to the fanzone-it might be easier if they told you what your username is rather than you having to work it out before you can log-in!

    Horne has a very open stance: almost shades of Peter Willey in places there. But that's a knock against some very good young English bowlers-Topley, Ball and the Overton's are all established FC players over here. And the guy has one thing I do like-he shares a name with one of my favourite Twin Peaks characters: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gXRWQ...eature=related



    Back on to Vincent for a moment, it seems I might have written him off prematurely due to this last season: Cricket Records | Records | Stanbic Bank 20 Series, 2011/12 - Mid West Rhinos | Batting and bowling averages | ESPN Cricinfo

    Neither he nor Mr "No Wicket" Tait exactly covering themselves in glory! But then I suppose anybody can have a poor T20 run.



    NOTE: Quinn's Cricinfo profile has been updated to say RMF!

    There's another Auckland NZ U19I who I'd given up on working out, but someone may be able to help me with: Nick Kelly | Cricket Players and Officials | ESPN Cricinfo

    His career record at youth and U19I doesn't make it clear whether he's a spinner or a batsman, both, or having some kind of Pietersen-style turning point in his career where he decides which of those he is!

    Leamington Spa is a lovely place. I did used to love lock-ins at the Brunswick on (funnily enough) Brunswick Street, but I fear it has long since closed or renamed itself. Ah well.

    They probably have someone reading this thread too; wouldn't be the first time.

    He was the No 5/6 dropped after the Quad Series wasn't he. There's his SLA -

    Was it the one by the canal? Problem is the whole canal area is a bit of a crime-fest now by leafy Leamington standards! You're right though, it's a lovely mellow place to live. It's easy to forget how nice. I work in a listed building for one thing-it's the converted old Pump Rooms, now a library.

    Great point! Bit of a theme, there: look out for any promising emerging youngsters with names like Windom Earle or Hank Jennings..

    I might need a bit of an idiots-guide to getting these pooch.blob's to work: they just open on a blank window for me.

    But yes, he's the guy. But actually it seems Cricinfo are wrong to have him down as Auckland, as he played for ND U18: The Home of CricketArchive

    The Home of CricketArchive


    Those stats very much paint a picture of a bowler, generally he batted 8-9 in those games.


    He did this last season: The Home of CricketArchive

    The Home of CricketArchive


    Yet for the national team, he was batting top 6 and bowled less than Horne: Cricket Records | Records | Quadrangular Under-19 Series (Australia), 2012 - New Zealand Under-19s | Batting and bowling averages | ESPN Cricinfo
