    That Anendra Singh guy does have an infuriatingly provincial style and is ****ing hard to read. Marty Kain's action and a mustachioed, wicket-keeping Sinclair tomorrow night won't do anything to stem the Hills Have Eyes taunts we associate with Central Districts either.

    Don't squander the gold of your days making a shrine of cricket videos, trying to improve the hopeless failure, giving your life away to the Blockys, the Devciches and the Weerasundaras! Surrender your devout little cricketing heart to the inured agribusinessman.

    I can bowl a doosra pretty competently but I clearly chuck it. Can I play? Sinclair's not gonna call me out on it after all; he loves me too much.

    I was bowling them with a completely legitimate action. I have NFI how.

    So Peter Fulton seems to be having a pretty decent season this year? I have seen zero minutes of actual cricket so far this year, so I'm not sure what to make of this.

    Any thoughts that he might be worth a (third, or is it fourth?) try in the national side?

    I don't think Fulton should play for NZ again unless he shows changes in his game and has a truckload of runs behind him.

    He's nearly 34, which is a bit old for a return, even for my tastes. Also, if he was even to come anywhere near the selector's attention, he'd need to have to keep up his current form pretty much all season.

    Still, I quite liked Fulton. Tall, good off the back foot, powerful through the leg side, seemed to have most of the tools necessary, even if his footwork was always a little suspect.

    Hadn't realised he was quite that old. We turned over so many batsmen in the previous decade... Bell, Papps, Fulton, Howe, Cumming, Redmond, Marshall J, etc, plus a few others in ODIs. Not to mention Sinclair of course.

    Quite a few of them did go back to first class cricket and score a few runs though no-one really racked up the numbers Fulton seems to be accumulating this season.

    I just want one of them to come back like a Hayden/Langer/Martyn and take a second chance. Flynn is looking a possibility at present but he'd better start converting those 40s and 50s into 130's pretty soon.

    No, think Straw Man tipped a 'nothing's changed' domestic season and I think he's proven more right than he knew. Probably on course for the most pre-Xmas runs ever, with the return of Fulton and Papps to the top of the charts like we're back in 2004, plus the continued emergence of Cachopa. All three pretty ungainly tstl against a quick short ball and lovers of a slow and low east coast venue. Cachopa vs. Short Stuff - YouTube

    Small playing for Manawatu at the Hutt Rec this weekend. Flat-out doesn't make the T20 side at the moment though apparently, Milne-Wheeler-Trego-Nethula-Kain or Patel-KNB-Cachopa.

    Cachopa isn't a bad player tbf, and with Milne and Mathieson bowling to him in the nets he has the opportunity that not many NZ batsmen get to work on his problem against two of the fastest blokes in the country.

    I do like the fact you can visibly see he's trying to run a much tighter ship than almost anyone, strong on the cut but highly suspect on the pull, flinching when confronted by Ellis bouncers just isn't on. Not by a long chalk.
