    Don't squander the gold of your days making a shrine of cricket videos, trying to improve the hopeless failure, giving your life away to the Blockys, the Devciches and the Weerasundaras! Surrender your devout little cricketing heart to the inured agribusinessman.

    Hah, Manu and Bates thinking they're a chance. Love at least one draw from a Wgtn perspective.

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

    Top match between Otago and ND. Otago were looking dead and buried at 190/7 chasing 440 but Broom currently 136* and Craig 73*. Pity there's not just a little more time - 123 required with 3 wickets remaining could be close, but as only 12 overs to play only ND can win from here.

    CD should be able to polish off Auckland, despite wobbles against Martin's spin. Auckland will wish they had 50 more runs to make a game of it.

    Quite a few of the players we want to perform are doing just that this round. Flynn, Broom, Anderson, and Neesham are playing well so far. I'd like to see Young make something of this start as well.

    Anderson actually went right down in my estimations as strange as it sounds. A bit like a prize carrot at a small farming town's school fete, once you put the impressive monsterism and early maturation factor aside, it's actually worse than a regular one for taste. Plays about 50 false and provincial shots, dropped chances, Butler beats him numerous times, dicey against spin as usual and yet Corey's still a brilliant prodigy rather than a handy Plunket player in a Munro or CdG way, I don't really buy it.

    CDG is a handy Plunket player? ITSTL

    Heh, averaged 70 last season with three tons, how can we say he's not.

    CDG was more than handy at Plunket Shield level last season. Hasn't had the greatest start this season though.

    Nothing like a good play-and-miss merchant

    Put him down for that number 6 spot... along with Flynn, Franklin, Vettori, Brownlie, Broom, Watling, Neesham and Munro

    One I wanted to see perform but hasn't is Bracewell (with the ball). Am getting a feeling that after his great start for NZ he's going to struggle to back up this season, with a risk he could revert to an average third seamer who takes wickets at 40ish. Predicting he will score some useful runs for NZ this summer but his first job is bowling.

    I'm seeing some tenuous lobbying for Nethula and ****kins recalls here. Manu ain't get no respect!

    Henry Nicholls was the most recent young cricketer to Lord's, Tim Johnston before that in 2010.

    Thanks. Thats helpful.

    Have now heard that it is the usual suspects in the Gillette - CBHS, PNBHS, OBHS with St. Peters of Cambridge , Kings College and HVHS . OBHS are rated this year.
