    Isn't he like 45 now though?

    listen to the sound off Anderson's bat. Brutal.

    It's a pity he's struggling to find his radar because Anderson bowls a heavy ball, gets good bounce and is ****ing sharp on the radar. High 130s with a bouncer in the 140s. Has had good spells with the ball before so hopefully this is just some one off puss because he has the raw assets to be test standard on bowling alone.

    Yeah, doesn't surprise. When he was first selected for Canterbury back in 2007, it was as a bowler who batted at number 9. Reckon he'll improve over the course of the season. Prior to this season, he'd barely bowled a ball in the previous 3 years afterall.

    Peeps here and on the radio are saying our domestic is 30% better than what it was 5 years ago. Hope this brings an end to domestic journeymen averaging 60 or 70 for the season by hiding down the order at number 6. Would like to look at a guy averaging 50 and knowing that he is a gun.
    Also hoping this translates to a better national team.

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

    That'd be a relief. I remember some ex-player on the radio saying the exact opposite, about 5 years ago funnily enough.

    Bowling maybe. Have our domestic batsmen really improved?

    These bowlers are passing the Sinclair test (can you get him out) but I miss the Pinga test.

    Bowler A is soooo good. Swings the ball, 140 PLUS!!!!111

    *Pinga smashes Bowler A for 250 (150)*

    But yeah the influx of quality bowlers should ultimately result in either improved batsmen or 200 all out being a winning total.

    From Boult v Starc thread:

    Next televised game is my lot v your lot and we need to get Mathieson in front of the speed gun, because he looks genuinely terrifying when he gets it right. Potentially the best quick in the country, but we'll take that to the domestic thread.
    They only showed the speeds for a couple of balls per over. It's possible that he was bowling quicker in-between, but I get the feeling that if he had hit 140, they definitely would've showed it. We all know the faaaaast bowlers get the crowds going.

    Agree, he looked quick at the ground too, but then again he was bowling at Michael Papps. We all know that he always ****s himself when facing anything at 135k above waist height.

    As a measuring stick, Shaun Tait was clocked at 144, which given that he was still recovering from injury doesn't seem too slow. Still it could be that the stadium was using different speed-gun technology that estimates bowlers at slower speeds.

    Fair enough. NZers as a rule tend to overestimate pace by 10kph as a rule anyway. We can only go off the speed gun as concrete evidence.

    itbt high 130s for a bouncy left armer is more than sufficient if they bowl well, but we'll see how they all clock up over the entirety of the season. I loved Bradley Scott tonight bowling under 120 then in the last over of the match fired in a 137kph yorker.

    I was gutted Tait didn't hit the 150s. I want to see someone not from CD or important to NZ get roughed up.

    Speaking of Papps, we're about to tour South Africa and he hit a double ton. Must be his turn on the merry go round again. World cricket needs Steyn back in top form as well.

    144 was still quick enough to send Lou Vincent's middle-stump cartwheeling.

    Hah, reckon there's an argument that could be made that Guppy shouldn't go to SA. His technique is a mess, and he won't benefit from 4 single figure scores in the republic. Send a sacrificial lamb (Can Papps catch?) in his place and get Guptill's confidence and technique restored on the Eden Park tarmac.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.
