    McKay? Does Athlai even like McKay?

    Selectors' intuition only 5% of the pie I guess, consistency of (taking 2/90 for Wgtn) performance 25%, fitness 10% (McKay's a physio).

    The elusive stags don't stand much of a chance with this "breakdown", possibly for the best they didn't run in hard on heavy turf at Lincoln anyway. Possibly why Gillespie's not there.

    So the schedules for the season are out.

    Plunket Shield starts late October, breaks just before Christmas then picks up again in late January. Final round starts on 20th of February.

    Ford Trophy has a dedicated window, starting on the 26th of February, following the conclusion of the First Class season.

    HRV Cup starts in early November with a single weekly Friday night game before the main competition kicks off over the Christmas/New Year period. Final on 20th of January.

    The International players will miss the majority of the T20 stuff by the looks of it as they'll be in South Africa. So they'll play Plunket Shield, go to SA, come back and have a week off then play England. While the England series is on there will only be One Day domestic cricket for those not involved.

    Sri Lanka to host Kiwis

    Date:2012-05-26 17:48:00

    By Champika Fernando

    Sri Lanka will host New Zealand for two Tests, five ODIs and a T-20 match in October-November before heading for Australia for a full cricket series of three Tests, five ODIs and two T20s on December 3.

    New Zealand will arrive for the first time since 2009 to play a bilateral series in Colombo on October 20.

    The tour will kick off with the T20 on October 24 at the Pallekelle stadium where the first ODI is also expected to be played on October 27.

    Hambantota will host the second and third limited over matches on October 31 and November 3 and Colombo the fourth and the fifth ODI scheduled at the R Premadasa stadium.

    The fourth ODI will be on November 7 while the final match will be on November 10.

    New Zealand who suffered a 2-0 defeat in their last two match Test series in mid 2009 will play a two-day warm up match on November 13 and 14 at the P. Sara Oval before the two match series begins on November 17.

    The first Test will be at the Galle International Stadium while the second Test will be in Colombo starting November 25.

    Friday nights at the Cake Tin without NZ players, pretty hopeful there.

    Kinda odd that there's nothing on the NZC website about the Sri Lanka tour. Perhaps the Lankans have been slack in getting it organised given they're hosting the T20 WC in a couple of weeks?

    At least our players should be somewhat used to local conditions with the ODIs and a warmup before the tests. Still would prefer three tests obviously - just doesn't feel like a proper series otherwise.

    I actually convinced myself there wasn't a tour, even when I knew there was. And when Ross told me there was on the radio yesterday. Weird by NZC.

    NZ players or no NZ players, Friday night HRV is bladdy good.

    I’m really pleased they have re-jigged the domestic calendar to get rid of the separate blocks for the 3 forms of cricket.

    But until I can see the domestic calendar alongside the Blackcaps calendar (SL tour, SA tour, Eng inbound tour) I will still reserve some judgement.

    I read a few months David White saying something about this changing. This is the first positive move of his since taking over from Vaughan, so off to a positive start IMO.

    The absolute disrespect our administration has shown to Plunket Shield and test cricket over the last decade has revealed them as an organisation geared up solely as an overseas TV money harvester. Hopefully we will now see a more balanced and sustainable approach. Because being completely useless at playing cricket puts a lot of that overseas money at great risk.

    Is it really at the cake tin. Have mixed feelings about that. The basin is tough to get to by train while the cake tin is a brief walk from the train station. So for a friday night venue it is better for me - but it will be stink sitting in a massive empty stadium.

    Also the best part of the HRV cup is the black caps. You can really see the gulf, between a black cap and the other players - and it is heart warming to see crowds turn up just to see Scott Styris (former blackcap) Kane and Tim.

    I see James Fuller got his first FC 5-for over night. 5-29. Congrats to him.

    Yeah, a ghost town (even worse at Eden Park) will dictate the mood of Sky's product a lot too, but even with say $10 tickets I'm not sure they'll generate an atmosphere. May have to look at Martin Crowe and Graeme Hughes making a comeback for Friday Night Max....I mean, HRV, to make it 'showtime' and special.

    Ryder and Ronchi opening up for the Firebirds, Vettori the only top-class LO bowler on the radar I can think of at this stage, this is definitely Athlai's Champions League year.

    Certainly rips it past the outside edge of Scotland's bats in a low-key group match.

    The late 2013 Bangladesh tour I reckon he wins (or has already won) a Test cap, Sodhi on course to have just a little bit more game than Greg Loveridge at 20.
