he used to have 37 but i unliked him iirc
Michael Papps double hundred.
Been a while between drinks for him.
Time ticking down on Gillespie tbh, presume his 4/74 was nothing too special. Not sure if you reserve a spot on him for SA on the basis of his vs. Proteas record or not, if the alternative is Wagner I suppose you do. Hopefully they don't name the Test squad about a month too early again with the LO leg coming first.
McKay out for a couple of weeks with a side strain.
I think the SA tour goes T20, tests, odi's.
Tough one to manage logistically. It is the first test (boxing day) that has been turned into t20 at last minute(ish), hence strange schedule.
If we weren't so ****, prepared ourselves properly, we wouldn't be such a repulsive drawcard for our hosts.
I'd definitely like gillespie on the tour, but only if fit, with overs under his belt, and on form. There's still 2 more pre Xmas games to go at least. Doesn't strike me as a good addition if things aren't quite riight.
With Bracewell's patchy form, it would be handy if he finds his mojo.
Plunket Shield: Kain will be able | Hawke's Bay Today
"We've been bowling enough [in the shield games] to be ready for the T20," Wheeler said, adding they had the wood on ND.
"We've got Marty Kain who's a top quality spinner so he's been practising the doosra and it's been coming out well," he said of the left-arm orthodox bowler from Nelson.
If the 24-year-old runs on then it'll be his debut in the HRV Cup.
Kain said he was getting deliveries coming back in to the right-handers from what he preferred to call "an arm ball".
"I've been practising it in the nets and I've got Dean Robinson out a few times already," he said, adding left-arm offspinner Ajaz Patel and the other boys were pretty excited, too.
Kain said it was vital for bowlers to keep thinking on their feet to bowl variation balls to be successful in a game that heavily favoured batsmen.
While Sinclair's Movember growth was "a beauty", Kain said he would have to up the tempo with the bat and keep wickets.
Fast bowling unit of Boult, Southee, Bracewell, Gillespie, Wagner IMO.
really unimpressed with what I've seen from Wagner.
Would prefer they give Milne a shot, and stick with Martin ahead of Gillespie.
