    Yeah definitely has one of the best techniques around, in fact probably the best I've seen amongst our openers alongside How. Like How he also needs to score some ****ing runs.

    Poor old Johnston got dropped for this game after taking a few wickets in his last couple of outings. Canterbury do appear to have built up their spin bowling stocks. Is it just me or does their tail for this game look quite long?

    What is Craig Cachopa? I'm sure he kept wicket for Wellington at some point last season, and I've heard somewhere he can bowl a bit, but here he seems to be playing as a specialist batsman at number seven which is strange considering CdG looks a bit high at four and Hopkins must be getting tired considering he's coming in after top order collapses every innings at five and then has to keep wicket. Cachopa is coming off a big hundred as well so they could show some faith. Strang and co. have a plan for him I'm sure. Can he and Munro do it again?

    edit: and I take it Kitchen is injured?

    Rutherford goes big here and his name will be thrown into the ring regardless of his lack of experience.

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

    Yep, Anaru broke his hand copping one at bat pad v CD. Looking to be back for the Friday night HRV match on the 21st.

    And Chops doesn't bowl, handy enough keeper.

    Just how many 'keeper-batsmen do Auckland need? New Zealand Cricket - Phil Mustard signs for Aces

    Four is apparently the answer.

    Rutherford seems to have trouble getting started.. Alot of nicks and plays and misses. But he looks like a great driver of the ball and can score big. Has got a couple 90s lately, would be good to see him score a hundy. I wouldnt want him playing tests for another season at least though. Only really been consistent in the side since mid last season.

    Did you watch him today? What are you basing this on - very interested in a first hand report.

Gut feel is he's not going to bowl well if he plays for NZ this season, unfortunately. Someone needs to make him angry so he runs in harder and gets it through quicker - Wellington should threaten to drop him again imo.

    @ Hurricane, na I didnt watch him yesterday, but I watch all his highlights and watched him in a couple live streams. Seems to get a nick or two through the slips early on pretty often. Obviously that happens with the new ball, along with the play and misses.

    McIntosh has kept too, hasn't he? Plus Cam Fletcher...so that's seven!


    Tell you what, when India tour next, Auckland should play them in a warm-up and pick them all (and no seamers)

    3 left armers in the Canterbury attack this match, fairly unusual. I'm guessing wicket may be a bit sticky this morning.

    Was it Jamie How, in a kippax upload of 11/12 dismissals, that kept getting out to left armers?

    If there's a player with a bigger chasm between how good he thinks he is and how good he actually is than A.Devcich, I can't think of him.

    Really irritated by Ryder's dismissals this season, particularly in last weeks game v Auckland. It shows that he's nowhere near ready for international cricket. If he tries that sort of rubbish against Anderson and Broad he's going to be humiliated. We all know that Jesse's too good for domestic cricket, but he needs to treat it for what it is - preparation for his return to the national side - and start playing accordingly.

    Yes it annoys me too - completely agree.

    Canterbury 19/4 vs ND . If that doesn't say 'green seamer' by itself, surely Ryan McCone taking 4 wickets does.
