    Lets put it this way: a sub-FC performer in Australia is more than good enough to make the grade domestically in England or New Zealand.

    South Australia is a bit different though; they pick some players who wouldn't get a game for Glamorgan Second XI at times (Tom Moffat come on down), and they delisted him. Being delisted by South Australia really should see the end of any professional cricket career IMO.

    "In 15 years of first class cricket I'd never feared that a top order batter was going to get hurt but I saw Mark Cameron bowling to a state opening batsman last summer and we were all genuinely worried this guy was going to get hurt," Clark said.
    It was Moffat.

    Proteas players did have a similar concern for Papps itbt.

    Borgas ended a 15-year title drought for those ****s it says, he'll be fine. Oh that's right, he's done. Tamim and Woakes, super.

    That said Borgas had a season in England would mark him out as a "decent County player". Which to my mind makes him good enough for NZ domestic too. He averaged 58 in Grade cricket last season, 3rd in the averages-as good as can be expected. And in any case he's more of a short-format specialist. He has some power.


    Not to mention that SA isn't much worse than WA. They bemoan their Grade quality just as much there. Brendan Diamanti averaged 24 there last season...

    A bit of Ben Horne video featured earlier in the thread here. Not exactly coached and packaged to deliver with him tbf, more just the fact two or more NZ players were at his family BBQs I imagine.
    Thanks for the 20/20 scorecard. The other Auckland opener must have gone to some decent BBQs . 65 off 29 balls with 11 boundaries ,5 maximums.And he can bowl .

    Singh should never be able to play domestic cricket. God he throws it, more than the Pakistanis.

    Decent BBQs, as in he's a big guy? Definitely not the case. Mark Chapman is a lil fella, part Asian - has already played for Hong Kong I think? Bowls left-arm offies and very technically correct batsman.

    Good to see the sight of Adam Milne, back in domestic cricket and being thoroughly outbowled by his CD compatriots.

    Well it is in a way.

    Carl Cachopa just can't stop doing stuff. Has a couple of wickets to his name. Watched some footage of him bowling from last season and he looks useful as a batsman who bowls. Want to see more though.

    Err don't be lumping English domestic cricket in with New Zealand. There are probably 2-3 awful teams, but just as many if not more who'd be a match for any domestic side out there.

    The depth is pretty good considering the number of players involved.
