    Harsh on the blokes who picked Franklin I reckon; he's probably still only some good ODI form, a couple more of those 137km/hr thunderbolts and a few more Brownlie failures from being back there, sad as that may seem. He did spend part of the summer there too given the Plunket Shield was already underway while he playing those Tests in South Africa. Certainly no more or less laughable in hindsight than the blokes who picked Flynn anyway IMO.

    There's just something a bit more embarrassing about backing Franklin, as if you lent a guy with a mediocrity addiction money to "get himself clean".

    What are your thoughts on Tim Seifert, Kippax? I'm not quite so pessimistic about the kids chances, but evidently there's a bit of work to be done before he'll ever be a success at the higher levels.

    Yeah, quite liked his very natural-looking setup and quite naturally nimble footwork to the spinners, and the fact he at least values the straight face. His pull shot is pretty unsightly, but also worth remembering they declared within half an hour of his dismissal.

    Otago's Jack Hunter with the slingy action at the start there, otherwise you could say this isn't a bowling crop of 2008 or 2010 proportions for us.

    Hit footowork to the quicks isn't incredible but he seems to play it late and adjusts for movement pretty well there. Who's the Brett Lee clone btw?

    He dominated the second half of the club cricket season in Dunedin.

    Fantastic footage Kippax - you have my vote in BOTM until the end.

    Seifert looked more composed in that knock. Still didn't care for his FD.

    The NZ attack did not have classic bowling actions. That is a polite way of saying they were not very good. With the exception I think of the second medium pacer in the clip.

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

    Good to see the juniors still suffer from the trusty third innings collapse

    Turning into quite an interesting run chase.

    yeah it is, but Australia have Short and Doran to come cause of the ****ed up teams, so its going to take a fair bit of luck for us to bowl them out

    Good to see that we are teaching them young that 'test' matches should be nothing more than a 13 a-side warm-up for the one-dayers.

    I take it this doesn't count from an official stats POV?

    Yeah, I liked the fact the Aussies were picking him up late, and that he's beating the top edge of the bat on a late season Lincoln pitch. He's limiting his modes of dismissal by jumping out wide on the crease every time obvs but he's got reasonable control.

    No, it doesn't count. I think the last two proper U19 tours I've seen scored on Cricinfo were England vs. South Africa both times, which I guess sums it up pretty well. Everyone else gears their whole program towards the next U19 WC, which provides a very tangible and convenient return on investment metric. This is much easier to record on a high performance balance sheet than some vague and toffy, set the tone pay-off.

    I'm starting to judge Buchanan now. I honestly couldnt quite 'place him' before.

    But with an NZ A test v India A turned a little farcical by him and Littlejohn wanting to experiment with how 2 bowlers, who will never play another test, and who would never lead the attack if they did - would go leading the attack with no 3rd paceman.

    And now this farce of an U19 test.

    I realize it's not just Buchanan's decision, and there is another team involved.

    But for a guy with a job which is so hard to measure, the few times he is involved with actual matches in the 'develoment' sphere -I've been pretty ****ed off with how they have been run.
