3 sixes in an over, poor Johnston.
See we're ingeniously getting Gillespie into "I'll do it all myself, with maybe an adventurous cbf innings from Ryder, thanks ****s" mode quite early this year, Wgtn's best mode of all. Got a few stumps flying in Rangiora last time, I still expect a modest first innings lead against these tipped-for-the-spoon shunts.
Nothing short of an All Stars look about Ellis, can only presume we'll bring him to his natural home one day.
100 run partnership between Gillespie and McKay.

Vimes tells it how it is:
Awww, Worker! A 100 for a No. 11 was right there ffs.
5th V 6th. How cute.
But seriously how bad is that Canterbury attack, Nuttall looks a decent prospect but it's pretty trash.

Oh man I cannot wait to watch todays play.
Sodhi is also shaping up to be a really annoying lower order batsman isn't he?

95 runs, should be enough
So happy to see Mitchell rack up a decent innings, he was insane for the Valley during the Hawke Cup last season, racked up a few 100's against some pretty handy attacks. Scored 120 odd not out against a Hamilton attack featuring Mathieson, Verma, Baker and Scott and his team struggled to make 200. Quality bat and a bloody decent bowling option.
Kippax, would I be able to request Cachopa and Brownlie tons plz?
Didn't play in this year's ICC U19 World Cup for NZ.
But send him to Colombo urgently ! Has played there before for HK I see.

He even gets interviewed when back in HK. Not bad at 16-17 years old.
Keeping a low profile in NZ. Wise move.
Exactly Slippaah, I was gob-smacked to see that it was the same guy-and that he's still so bloody young! I know 18 is a bit young for "A" cricket, let alone FC, but...he has full international experience and a lot of it abroad, so I don't think he'd be fazed in the slightest.
Namibia is a really interesting one in that they play in the SA semi-pro second tier (which is FC). They generally finish bottom but bloody a few noses, with their best 4 or 5 players delivering the sort of numbers that mark them out as good enough to be reasonable players in County or NZ domestic cricket. Again, I wouldn't see them anything other than bottom as they don't have the depth.
UAE are just the definition of inconsistency-they'll beat Afghanistan one game and lose to Nepal the next. Every so often Khuram Khan might win a game on his own, but he's a bit ancient now.
But if you were to pick an XI out of the slightly lower Associates, they'd give any domestic NZ side a good game. Nepal's best spinner wouldn't be far off Kiwi international honours..and I'd say most of the top 10 Associates sides would do really well in a 2nd XI competition. Chapman's in that "just under FC" level as a top HK performer-only that was almost 2 years ago when he was still a child!
