    Yeah I'm going to have to assume the true intention there was to put a line through Arnel, McKay and Nethula and have a specific game to direct their enquiries to, then crack on with the youngsters next A tour. Likewise the county stint for Nicol tbh.

    All 30 Wickets, New Zealand U19 vs. Australia U19 - YouTube

    Pity Weerasundara struggled with the short stuff and was a bit of an Unmukt Chand with his cut and offside drive bias. A very stylish little bat by Wgtn-raised standards.

    Lot of soft wickets given away by the kiwis. Especially in the first innings - only really that brute of a bouncer that got Gibbons seemed worthy of a wicket. I realise some of the later ones were deceleration wickets.

    That Fotia bowled a few brutes in the second innings.

    Very hard to tell the two blond kiwi bowlers apart, Jamieson and Hunter. Good to see the legspinner Jenkins get a stumping from a googly.

    Weerasundera did looks classy/elegant from the shots in that vid.

    Fair few leg side strangles, or holing out off full tosses from both sides?

    Met Tim Seifert a few times at Seddon Park at matches. (I tend to visit too many matches than I should). He seems like a top bloke and a good prospect. He trained with the ND side this season.

    On the subject of top blokes, Jeetan Patel is a right ____. Just putting that out there.

    On the Australian side of things, McDermott looked pretty impressive behind the stumps from those dismissals.

    Possibly I'm having too high standards here, but my god, there's some appalling dismissals in there for both sides. Just great examples of really, really thick cricket. Getting run out because you've wandered out of your crease, or are practicing the sweep shot you've just hit. Hitting juicy full tosses to fielders. It's just so, so dumb.

    The out-to-a-pie dismissal is something that happens far, far too often imo, particularly in youth cricket. If you get a big full toss or a long hop, just hit the ball along the ****ing ground.

    Yeah, had a good laugh at some of those dismissals.
    A large number of Kohlis and what looked like a couple of dodgy LBW decisions in there as well.

    They're young, they'll learn... hopefully.

    Big demand to join new training programme | Stuff.co.nz

    Pro X New Zealand Ltd is now in Sri Lanka | The Sundaytimes Sri Lanka

    If he wanted to avoid sharing an employer with his dad, Weerasundara would be a perfect fit for Central Districts tbf. Greek bully Fotia certainly had him pegged as a nice little technically-minded introvert to rough up with short stuff and keep giving a gobful to.

    Seemingly discriminated against selection-wise today as well, probably for being a bit too precious and slow, despite the fact this isn't an U19 side you'd say has talent to burn.

    Good to see the NZU19's creep over the line for a consolation win.

    Some lovely looking shots from Weerasundara in that compilation. Good to see him get some runs today.
