    Full strength side for opener | Stuff.co.nz

    Hartmann will bat at No 5 behind openers Peter Ingram and Robinson, with captain Dion Ebrahim at three and Young at four.

    The other newcomer is Hondo - a former Zimbabwean international.

    A fast bowler, Hondo plays his club cricket for the Hawera United premier side and takes the one available spot in the rep team for an overseas player.

    O'Neill said Hondo has fitted in well to the rep squad since arriving late last month.

    "We'll use him in the pre-Christmas games on the wickets that suit him," he said.

    O'Neill said Hondo hits the wicket hard with the ball, adding Hondo's experience had already proved its worth, with him passing on bowling tips to the young players in the squad.

    O'Neill doesn't need telling of the importance for a team to start the cup series well. It's a competition that if you start badly and get off the pace, getting back in contention is almost impossible.

    There are six teams chasing the one available spot to challenge for the cup which is currently held by Hamilton. O'Neill was yesterday talking of a first innings win against Manawatu at best.

    "The wicket at Pukekura Park is as good as I've seen prepared in years for a Taranaki game," he said. "So you would expect both batting sides might be hard to get out on that. I'd be surprised if it went to an outright result."

    Hmmmm...ND's bowling streak is looking a little gentle in the absence of Boult.

    Hawke Cup rocks. Used to be such a big deal growing up in the provinces. Good to see Mason still turning out for Manawatu.

    Makes me want to dig up his tribute thread. His final game ever in List A will live in folk lore.

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

    Big Dougy Hondo though - that was a surprise.

    The 'Naki have a fine history of ex-Zimbabwean cricketers. Pretty sure Gavin Ewing played for them a few years back.

    With the all rounders going round atm, and with the old/average ones in the Blackcaps (Ellis, Oram), who do you think has the most potential to take the next spot available? Basically they all need another season in domestic to get experience.

    I'm fans of Boam, Neesham and probably Anderson (Looks like he's back to bowling full time, and looks handy). I think it's pretty dumb leaving Boam out of the Firebirds, and having Elliott there making 0 runs and bowling 5 overs a game. Basically keeping his spot because of experience and a big score every 5 games.

    With these guys around, with the likes of Boult, Southee, Milne, Small, Henry, Bracewell, Williamson, Rutherford, Latham and the likes, that age group looks strong for the next decade.

    Well, the bowling looks strong, not so sure about the batting...of the all rounders, none of them have really stood out yet. Your certainly right that there's a space available for whoever gets noticed first.

    The thing with thier bowling is they are all very similar, 125-130kph medium pacers. Neesham has had some good success with his bowling so far, and Anderson is only just starting up again. Jimmy is your smasher at 6, CJ is a aggressive 5 and Boam is probably a more run gatherer at 4. But as you say, they all need to be more consistant with their batting. I think Anderson scored 4 runs in his last to innings to back up his hundy, interested to see how Neesham goes.

    I think this is the Will Williams ( Ex CBHS - bowler) you are referring to;

    Cricket | Brad Cachopa eager to prove his worth | Stuff.co.nz

    Not that helpful but he gets a mention.

    Are there any other schoolboy gems like Seifert coming through in N Z in 2012?

    Love the gillette cup. Some memorable games against Hamilton boys high school when I was growing up.
    No, they have their own fields. Itstl that they're in the finals, St Paul's are a better side than them imo. Bowling is pretty average and their batting relies on Tim Seifert too much.

    I see de Boorder was standing up to the stumps for Duffy, Butler and Neesham yesterday.

    Butler has looked quite sharp this season in the other video I have seen him in, including the televised T20 match. While Duffy looks like he is lacking rythym this season but I would guess is still sending them down in the 130s. I have only watched the wickets and boundaries via the front end, but that's pretty impressive keeping I am guessing.

    Interesting blog I read recently about the value of a decent keeper (over a limited keeper that can bat/hit) in modern T20 cricket etc:

    Anyone else liking the look of D Bartlett?

    Or is it just the Malcolm Marshall/Ntini bowling action, and that he has been bowling towards the camera that makes him look faaaast?

    Bangs it in, seems hard to pick up to me, and seems to hit the seam a fair amount.
