    I ran a sim of the forthcoming season on Cricket Coach last night and your Vincent and Sodhi predictions came true! Jeet Raval second in the batting averages. As it happens the Sodhi performance is a bit buggy given the rating I've given him (and really Sinclair should have beaten Vincent), but it did make me smile.


    Back in reality-least Brodie's injured rather than dropped, ditto Small; some guys have none of the luck, as the song doesn't go.

    Eden Park Outer Oval has a lot to do with my Vincent call. Whether it quickly reverts to a Jeet Raval 256 level of batter-friendliness or not.

    Sinclair should've dominated because he was the best bat, but in the end he under-performed slightly and missed the boat? Sounds realistic actually.

    Wheater is playing for ND? FFS.

    Don't they have Fozzie playing for them too? This isn't on. Not by a long chalk.

    Pleased to see Wagner's wickets were proper fast-bowler wickets. Rutherford and Redmond now on the way to first centuries of the season. Otago could threaten for Plunket Shield title but they'll lose a lot when Wagner's away plus I expect their batting to fall over at key moments during the season.

    Astle's 95 was a hack - not going to score any more runs than Bracewell if he plays for NZ.

    Looks like he's going to be tested out by Wellington. He's already bowled five overs.

    Right on cue, Otago crash from 1/253 to 7/296

    Tim Johnston FC debut is it? Three bowleds and an lbw.

    Nine overs*

    Looks like Sinclair's still a weapon. Terrible collapse by Otago, but they still have some useful players left.

    It's not quite Johnston's debut, but 33 overs to a Test spinner's 7? Derek de Boorder caught sub, Astle must be off.

    Both sides were talking about wanting two spinners for this pitch days out, so Otago in a bit of trouble here if 300 isn't beyond Canty's batting completely.

    Ah, there's Astle.

    Carl Cachopa all four FC hundreds in his last seven innings, might have to make a 2011/12 dismissals video to check he's an absolute no-go.

    Why is Young at 7?

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

    Yeah but we are trying to use the Plunket shield to develop peeps and Young is an up and comer.

    Van Wyk is already in the test team and 7 is high enough for him.
