    Philander is in doubt for PE and was restricted during the second innings because of hammy tightness.

    Pisses me off how we continually turn up at least one or two days late for every test series and then talk about how we improved during the game and the things we need to learn from our mistakes.

    How about some proper preparation and mentally turning on the first morning, you ****ing losers?

    Agreed. Harsh to criticise him for his 1st innings performance.

    How do you guys think Philander will perform in the SC? He didn't do too well on the flat pitches of Australia (averaged 50 and didn't play all 3 tests - was he injured?).

    .
    The two younger Cachopa boys certainly look very Afrikaans, so that is good enough for me . Munro also has bit of accent, and was also born there. So i wouldn't exactly say they are much more kiwi than they are South African.

    But you are right about the next generation coming through, especially in Auckland/North Shore. However I see them being more English than Afrikaans. I know two of Auckland's better young batsmen are from South Africa in Bradley Schmulian and Rob O' Donnell.

Easily a worse shot than Haddin or Bell and in an unbelievably dire situation at a dire time. Hopefully he'll take test cricket seriously like he did before his shenanigans and withdrawal from international cricket.

    Kippax will probably post it up again now I've brought it up.

    Cricket: Buchanan Breaks Silence Over Black Caps | Stuff.co.nz

    Cricket: In-form Jesse Ryder 'right' to stay on... | Stuff.co.nz

    "I wouldn't say that Jesse is ready for venturing into the international arena just yet - that would be my view from a distance watching two innings in one game," the former Australian coach said.

    "That's not necessarily always the best impression, but having talked pretty closely to those around him, I'm not sure he's ready as yet. That's irrespective of the numbers he's punching out in domestic cricket."
    Meanwhile, sacked Black Caps captain Ross Taylor looks set for a return to domestic cricket within the next week.

    Taylor's Central Districts team play Twenty20 games in New Plymouth against Auckland on Wednesday and Otago next Sunday.

    Central coach Alan Hunt had yet to hear from Taylor which game he would be back for, although it is understood his return is imminent.

    Hunt said he was confident Taylor would be pulling on the whites again when Central Districts restart their Plunket Shield campaign against Canterbury at McLean Park in Napier on January 24.

    Buchanan, who last spoke to Taylor before Christmas, said Taylor should return to cricket only when he felt ready.

    Great article - thanks for that. Guess we can cross Jesse's name off the XI for the English tour. His disdain for domestic bowlers must have not impressed Buchanan.

    Strangely if he had've put up lower numbers but looked more sincere in his efforts he would probably be in the running.

    That's a shame as he is 28 now. And time passes quickly.

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

    Kind of sick of people talking about Ryder needing to fix his personal issues, last time i heard (months ago) he hadn't had a drink in months and had lost a lot of weight. I don't really mind him playing the way he is, because it allows him to enjoy his cricket (which he was struggling to do for a while) and hopefully will lead on to him playing properly instead of not at all

    I have no idea if he hasn't had a drink (but knowing what I do about the bloke it seems unlikely he hasn't) but he certainly hasn't lost a lot of (or any) weight.

    Ryder is still Ryder. Honestly I just think he's a bit of a dick, but one we should have in our cricket team.

    He must of put weight back on then
    Around the time of his boxing match he was still a little bit on the chubby side, but he was noticeably slimmer

    Will be a test for him. He missed Adelaide, bowled well in Perth and without luck, bowled without luck at times in Brisbane but was also dogged by no balls and didn't bowl his normal immaculate length. He'll certainly find it harder than in SA and in particular CT. According to one of the journos interviewed last night along with Doull, Philander at Newlands when there's a bit of moisture in the pitch is almost unplayable.

    I don't care about Ryder's personal issues. I care about him trying to play dumb dab shots to one of the few bowlers in our domestic circuit representative of international quality bowling. He can take the piss out of crappy domestic bowling all he likes but he needs to be able to recognize quality when it turns up and respond differently.

    That's how he batted against Australia last summer. While the likes of Brownlie would fight, he would come in and invariably play an injudicious shot because he seems more intent on keeping the scoreboard ticking than respecting the bowler and taking each ball on its merit.
