    It does sound that way, unfortunately of course even if he goes well he has to make way for Woakes.

    You'd have to hope that bringing in quality will lead to the bar being raised and people having to push themselves even harder to keep their place, healthy competition. Plus of course Woakes might bat at 6...although then it's an all-rounder/batsman missing out. Either way, if you were to pick an ideal County signing, Woakes would probably be it.


    I've got a hunch that Hutchinson is going to do well, and with Kuggeleijn's pace and age on his side, there's plenty more to come from him. It's a strangely put together side, and it could all fall to pieces. But when you factor in Ronchi, and with Ryder and Murdoch not interesting the national selectors, they look better set up this season than they have for a while.

    No, actually if he has a NZ parent he may be alright.

    Do Wellington have any intentions of playing Tipene Friday this season? Still can't believe he's only managed the one first class game so far in his career. Every off-season he seems to make the NZ academy with half a dozen regular first class youngsters, yet he can't seem to get a game with the Firebirds.

    McKay making that NZ A four-day side was a pity for Friday, and everyone really. People will now persist with the idea his 'different angle, quicker' point of difference makes him integral to the Wgtn attack, but he's rarely an LBW threat, so nothing ever comes of it.

    Not a real season-opener, it does come just one round in. Howsie to probably correct.

    Yeah I read that a while back and took it as him being a Kiwi again now. If it's good enough for Ronchi..

    I would question his maths, mind: he says he's 50/50 then claims he "always took his mum's side" (NZ)-it can't be both!

    Agree that it's a bit harsh on Friday. Lad can't prove himself unless he's given an opportunity.

    It sound's like it's just in the Plunket. Possibly a tacit acknowledgement that Elliott is no longer a guaranteed starter in their best 4-day side? That could just be me writing someone off based on a mediocre statistical season again though

    Yeah, looks like it is the Plunket side.

    I guess it makes sense, Elliot had a poor season last year but couldn't really be dropped even though Wellington have an abundance of similar players (Franklin, Boam)

    If Elliot found the captaincy a distraction, then makes sense to split the responsibilty.

    However it does sound spookily similar to A de Boorder's new role at the start of last season; promising batsman - but with only 2 decent seasons under his belt, not guaranteed pick in all forms .... I hope it works out better for Murdoch. At least the season structure is better this year.

    "Ajaz bowled well in the twenty/20 tournament a fortnight ago. He slides the ball nicely and doesn't spearhead the ball but gives it good flight so he has a good chance of playing for CD depending on how Tarun goes with New Zealand Cricket this summer,"

    CD sounding like they're at virtually full-strength heading into this long weekend tourney amongst themselves.

    and Magic! Boam will need to implore to Siddons that he's the future of NZ cricket (more than Elliott is) and a former U19 top 4 bat.

    Canterbury Wizards conjure all-round cover
    MATT RICHENS

    Injuries to key quick bowlers have forced the Canterbury cricket side to enlist the services of a little-known import.

    English 28-year-old Gareth Andrew joins the side on Monday and will play the first half of the season including the domestic Twenty20 competition.

    Andrew, a bowling all-rounder, will help plug a gap left by injuries to Hamish Bennett and Matt Henry.

    New Canterbury coach Gary Stead said Bennett is out for at least the first two Plunket Shield games while The Press understands Henry's recovery is on track but he is unlikely to feature in any way before January.

    He had a great season in 2011, coming 2nd in the PCA's MVP Rankings, but a rough time by comparison in 2011: he dropped to 89th in MVP's (not brilliant for an all-rounder). His bowling dropped off so much in 4-day that, with Worc's batting line-up crumbling as they tumbled to relegation, they toyed with him being picked in the top 6 (at least one position too high).

    I might just be bitter still after he did this to us: Warwickshire v Worcestershire: Gareth Andrew seals thrilling win in the dark | Warwickshire v Worcestershire, Friends Life t20, Edgbaston Report | Cricket News | ESPN Cricinfo

    He's much more useful in the shorter formats, where his weakness against the short ball isn't exposed quite so often and his power can come into it's own.

    It could be an inspired signing. It all depends which Gareth Andrew turns up! The 2011 vintage was a different beast entirely to that seen last season.


    I guess this means no Mitch Claydon for Canterbury this season?

    For those who suspected the rise of Jeets and Franklin was Athlai dabbling in the dark arts, everything in the sig of the President of T.I.T.S. has now aligned.
