    Great news. I was under secretary of TITS before getting frustrated with his over aggressive batting style.

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

    Cricket | Jesse Ryder Rejuvenated | Stuff.co.nz

    In fact, the 28-year-old has so impressed Wellington coach Jamie Siddons with his attitude and pre-season from that he's not expecting to see too much of Ryder this summer - for all the right reasons.

    "I would imagine he won't be [with us] for long because he will be with the Black Caps - he's going fantastic," Siddons said.

    36 and 47-ball hundreds in T20 matches suggest he's pretty rejuvenated, yeah...

    We really need a test spinner emerge in the next 2 seasons. Patel has given me a bit of confidence in him after his recent showings, but he's getting on. Astle and Nethula are never going to be international forces or anything in my opinion. I hope Ish carves up this season and stays away from the Black Caps, need to let wristys develop their consistancy and variations.

    Yep well said, a bit fearful myself someone in particular will latch onto him and his 'pride of Papatoetoe' qualities via these Friday night HRV games, "if he's not better than Todd Astle I'm not here" etc.

    Cricket: Three debutants in Stead's Canterbury squad... | Stuff.co.nz

    Hard hitting Marist-Harewood allrounder Ben McCord is part of Stead's 14-man squad as are McCord's club team-mate Cole McConchie and Canterbury Country wicket-keeper David Fulton...

    ...[Brother Peter] Fulton will captain the side and is likely to open the batting with George Worker, followed by Stewart and Brownlie.

    If Auckland are eliminated from the Champions League this morning, Cachopa will be back in time and bat in the middle order with Henry Nicholls.

    The makeup of the bowlers is easier to work out, thanks to a lack of fit bodies, leaving left-armers Willie Lonsdale and Ed Nuttall to join English import Gareth Andrew.

    That would leave just one spot up for grabs and a decision on playing a fourth seamer or second spinner will probably be made on Saturday.

    East Christchurch Shirley offspinner Tim Johnston could play his fifth first-class match or McCord could debut.

    McCord would add more with the bat, but the already strong middle-to-lower order and the dry nature of the Mainpower Oval wicket could play into Johnston's favour

    Respectfully disagree. If Sodhi does prove to be the business and carves up in the PS (big if), I reckon he should move into the national framework relatively quickly, maybe as early as next year. He's unlikely to learn much about the art of legspin whilst bowling at utterly clueless domestic batsmen. Better to get him into a competitive and professional environment while he's still young and developing.

    317/2. Brad Wilson made 53 this morning, Joey Yovich 29, James Marshall retired on 73, Daniel Flynn retired on 76 (both just so as to give everyone a bat), Corey Anderson was going well at 59 not out and Daryl Mitchell 16 not out with over an hour still to play
    Hell Wellington F-Birds indeed.

    With the bowling attack ideally we would have liked to take two spinners due to the conditions we encountered up there in the warm up match. Unfortunately Nick Beard has a shoulder injury at the moment and was not able to be considered for selection.

    Let him play a couple of FC games before we speculate on his future.

    Just making a general comment about young spinners in New Zealand really. Domestic batsmen simply don't have the technique or experience to play spin to anything even approaching a competent standard. As a result, if a young spinner actually shows some genuine promise (a la Vettori way back in 1996) there's little point in leaving him in the domestics for long, as he's unlikely to really be tested or learn much about how best to bowl. The sluggish, green pitches typical of a lot of FC matches don't exactly encourage a young spinner's development either.
