Cricket: Slow progress for CD before rain arrives | Stuff.co.nz
The Stags made one change to their team, with former Wellington medium pacer Andrew Lamb replacing Ben Wheeler. Noema-Barnett said Wheeler had a tight hamstring and, rather than risk worsening the injury, it made sense to play Lamb instead.
Neesham looked good. I see what people mean about hitting the ball cleanly. A slight worry that he seems to close off his stance just before the ball is bowled - i.e. brings front pad across as if he's going to play into offside. Could get into trouble with that imo. Hoping for a breakthrough season from him, particularly in FC.
He's playing bloody well, Sohdi on the other hand is not. Bowling **** and short.

Cachopa looking for another century! We are needing an all rounder in the Blackcaps.. Neesham and Cachopa are more batters but I have more faith in them than Ellis.. Shame Boam isnt getting game time.
Yeah, Cachopa in some crazy form recently. Can't say I've ever been that impressed when I've seen him play, but I suppose it's the results that matter. Anyway, went to check exactly what he has scored in the last few games and got this on the Blackcaps website:
I suppose he's doing alright for a bloke still shy of his first birthday.
Some creative Pakistani has got hold of that.
Fifth ton in eight knocks, love to know who did that last actually, let alone a first five.
Ish does get nervous, same sort of early yips as U19 semi I suspect. Might unlist Youtube shrine. take the pressure down. Chuck it to Devcich, to turn 'em around.
Hahaha nice. Yeah the Blackcaps website player profiles suck hard.

Hundreds in last 4 games bar 1, and he didnt bat. Now 93*, great form.
Wow, thats awesome! Dangerous time waster right there..
ND and Otago playing in the style of NZ from 5+ years ago . Pretty good bowling and then the batsman come out...... just long enough to wear the shine off the new ball, leaving numbers 7-10 (the engine room of the batting effort) to manfully stick around and hit some boundaries to score 250.
Neesham's innings brought Otago level and that could be a matchwinning 61* from Butler.
Butler and Duffy such a strong 10-11 at Plunket level, as a coach I'd struggle with the sheer waste of it. Neesham to 5, Wells can return at 6, Nick Beard in a stonewalling red inker's role at 11 I'd probably have it, damn strong side.
