I'm glad McCord has got a couple of wickets. With Rankin now English, there's a vacancy in the Irish bowling ranks-and Trent Johnston can't be going on for much longer. McCord was the pick of the Irish "A" bowlers in 2011, so a decent season in New Zealand has got to put him in with a shout of a full call-up. Which could obviously in turn cause problems for his selection in New Zealand domestic cricket.
Funny fella, Murtagh-never really does great in OD/T20. I still can't believe Ireland don't pick him more, though. I get the feeling he gets punished for being a bit of an opportunist qualifier. Whatever happened to Peter Connell? He was looking OK but disappeared off the cricketing map last year. EDIT: ah, here he is: http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/sp...-16169903.html
And it sounds like Trent is giving it one more year: http://www.cricketeurope4.net/DATABA...7/001747.shtml
Back on topic-so Ryder is considered Wellington's 4th seamer ahead of Elliott, eh? I'd have expected Elliott to bowl a few overs at least unless he has a knock that's preventing him from bowling.
Decent birthday for Tim Johnston.
Can Cribb be banned from this thread? I like my Domestic Discussion Sinclair and Cribb-free, thanks.
Although any news on Mike Garnham would be welcomed.
Looks like Wagner's injured.
Yeah pulled out halfway through an over.. Doesnt sound great. Canterbury having a bit of a fight back.
Anyone know much about Henry Nicholls? 20yo, didnt make U/19s but has made a good start to his career.
Nice to see Rutherford getting more runs, shame he couldnt get another century. Not often do young batsman get consistant hundreds in this country.
Wagner got hit on the head by a ball in warm-ups. Tried to soldier on but it's been giving him grief, so he went off. Nothing too serious.
