    Quietly pleased with Upper hutt's premier div team - we won the game today. had to battle against dane hutchinson charging in.

    Grade cricket in general is awesome to watch - the quality of the ball striking is terrific,

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

    Read again and you'll see that I wasn't commenting in the slightest on the comparative standard in New Zealand and England; I was saying that a good Grade player who hasn't quite made it in Australia would be good enough to do OK in either. QED!

    I'd wondered where Chapman had disappeared to-he was one of Hong Kong's best players at a stupidly young age (several of his team-mates were old enough to be his dad..almost grandad!) but hasn't played for them since April 2011. I guess he's relocated, in which case he's got to be a future FC player. I hope he gets some "A" games this season.

    I don't think he ever relocated - always been at King's College in Auckland as far as I'm aware. Just linked up with HK every now and then as a benefit to both parties.

    Right, so he probably had the option of playing for either. I'd suggest a swift change of allegiance before the next U19I games may be in order?

    I can't imagine that would be a problem. Certainly if the bureaucrats got in the way of that it'd be the wrong thing to be doing

    Cricket: Brownlie determined to bounce back - Cricket - NZ Herald News

    Wish Brownlie would score some bloody runs. I like the idea of him at six against SA a lot more than say Franklin, IF Brownlie is playing well. I guess he's had two centuries including the NZA match so I shouldn't complain, but everything other innings has been a failure.

    He could put his hand up to bat in the top 3 and avoid starting his innings against spin if he gets an opportunity there.

    There's a lot of congestion in the middle order between players of similar quality (bar Ryder). Ryder will smoke his way back in eventually so you've got Flynn, Franklin and Brownlie all going for one spot with maybe Watling in there if van Wyk or de Boorder keep wicket. In an ideal world Vettori would be fighting for that spot as well but I suspect three pacers and Vettori will resume when he gets back because no one has the guts to tell him he isn't doing enough with the ball.

    Add to that Williamson might get yo-yo'd down to six again so anyone willing to put their hand up for the top order only has to show they're better value than Guptill or Williamson (as a 3).

    If you were ND, you'd be mad.

    Nothing like a last wicket partnership to rub salt in the wounds! They're over 50 now-and just a few runs shy of ND's highest partnership. Seems that Smith has remembered how to bat as well as learning how to keep. Although I still don't understand why Cleaver isn't playing.


    Gotta love Carl Cachopa..has a mediocre game with the bat for once? It's OK, he's already contributed by ripping out the ND top order with the ball. Strings to bows and all that.

    Auckland got Phil Mustard instead. Wellington have Woakes and Tamim to replace their Aussies. Canterbury have Mitch Claydon again, CD have Peter Trego, Otago have Ryan ten Doeschate, ND have Foster and Croft.

    Watched kug on the pooch. I reckon he has changed his delivery action over winter, not jumping toward popping crease in delivery stride.

    As someone said earlier, excellent slower ball. Along with his decent Yorkers I reckon he has a bright t20 future. Looked like he didn't quite land all of them, on another day would have been an impressive spell
