    Rutherford is a bit of a brute from what I have seen. But he has only had half a season of good form, he needs to average over 40 and get some runs in the other formats to push for a genuine spot. I'm suprised about the big scores he gets, I thought he was more of a quick 30 or 60 type of basman. Brownlie gets him out on 99... Man that is gutting.

    Latham is probably more talented, he will probably be keeping for Canterbury this year and batting 4-5, I dont think Van Wyk is our keeper for the future so he could put pressure on him with runs. He still is probably a season or 2 away from making a real go at it, is only 21 and looks a bit uneasy against shorter stuff, although that is common at the start of a new season!!

    Thread reminds me a bit of a game I used to play, next three test debutants. I was looking good to get all my pigeons home first once until a scandalous James Marshall over Peter Fulton decision.

    Hamish Rutherford, 99 vs. India A - YouTube

    That square drive/cut he plays off about a fifth stump, he scores so heavily with that it makes a FTB tag tempting. Sweetly-timed off drives are a regular feature as well tbf. Did a search for pull and hook shots played in any innings within the vault*, there's one.

    * I've got a short walk-through video for this now btw. I'll PM it to anyone who fancies using the vault over the summer, or has had problems and thinks it would pinpoint their issue.

    Note Rutherford's wagon wheel has been inverted (as if a right-hander), Latham's hasn't.

    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.

    Good point. Raval is one that comes to mind who's done it and hasn't really been in the international reckoning yet. He could still get there in the future, though.

    Seems very accomplished at the old swish 'n' wish, doesn't look international standard at all.

    (Yes, I do realise that's not even remotely a big call)

    I think Latham will have some ODI success though if they don't move him up and down the order repeatedly or occasionally ask him to keep wicket.

    Nice, and a ridiculous oversight on my part seeing I saw it. I tried to look up all the double centurions in FC but my internet skills are not great.

    You can look them up this way;
    New Zealand Cricket - NZ Cricket Archive
    - then click on 'records',
    - then 'first class'
    - then choose an association
    - the click 'batting records'
    - then click 'Most Runs in an Innings for xxxx '

    for some reason can't copy & paste the url


    Doing a quick check, a recent guy to get one is Josh Brodie (but like you say he will probably eventually get selected). M Parlane perhaps the most accomplished recent double centurion to not get higher honours.

    While Broom and Woodcock have FC 200's yet haven't yet been selected for test cricket, but have been for LOs

    Thank you sir.

    I think I used the enquiry originally in regards to Brodie. M Parlane scored one against a pretty damn good Auckland attack, and David Kelly is the other interesting one in 2001. Real flat track bully that fella.

    Jesus, Hamish is basically a left-handed version of his Dad, the resemblance is that strong I reckon.

    Bump - Hendrix is not to answer (as I know his vote) - Rutherford looks unlikely to make a name for himself in the test arena and will be doing well to be in the team 12 months from now. Will Latham fair better?
    I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowd
    one day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.
    Overrated XI Warner, Rutherford, Steve Smith, Rahane, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaul

    I think at this point a Rutherford vs Fulton thread would be more appropriate, since they're both on very thin ice. Latham should get the next two series at the least to show what he can do.

    Yeah a major commercial partner of NZC's was very keen to see that channel's demise. Read the video description of that -

    I'll sometimes add a new video to this unlisted (won't be found by google etc.) playlist -
