    van Zyl's known for having a really classical technique too, so it'll be interesting to see if it was a typical T20 mow wicket or a proper one.

    I can't remember the rules concerning trees inside the bounds of the field. Anyone willing to refresh my memory?

    The one at Kent it used to be that if you hit the tree it was 4 and that was it. A long time I believe the rules had allowed for someone to get the ball stuck in the tree and rack up rather a lot of runs.

    All the matches will be broadcast on SuperSport (pay TV). If you have the means to stream it online, you almost certainly can afford SuperSport. The issue here is that the (almost free) national broadcaster, who usually shows all home games, won't be showing the matches. According to cricinfo "Last season, the two Twenty20s against Australia pulled in an average of 1,254,642 viewers on SABC while SuperSport had 252,071.", So the problem is that cricket won't be reaching "the masses" this year.

    Great to hear Brendon is giving Mitch full reign to take wickets at the top without fear of leaking runs. First tick in the box for the new (c) - we've been crying out for a spearhead in limited overs for a long time now

    What a surprise, the day after NZ Cricket say they know nothing about it - the rumours return:

    Tim Southee in Frame to be New Zealand Vice-Captain... | Stuff.co.nz

    I have to say that I am not a fan of putting too much responsibility on Williamson's shoulders. He is too young, and as the best batsman in a very poor batting team he already bears a huge amount of weight. I guess vice-captaincy comes with few real responsibilities, but I'd be happier if he had a bit more time to actually bed into top level cricket.

    Having said that, who else is there who could step up? Guptill? Flynn? Brownlie? Watling? Of them only Guptill is a first team regular - and I have no idea whether he has had any captaincy experience or how effective he might be. Plus, he seems to be good friends with Ross Taylor and that probably means he is on the outer with Hesson. Brownlie is a South Islander and is originally from Perth, so that gives him two ticks (In the "South Islander" and "probably drinks beer" boxes). Or what about Franklin - he has captained Wellington at the very least.

    Anyway, it seems to me that there is no very good alternative in there. It is either Williamson or Southee. One is too young and doesn't look like he is the sort to be seen knocking back pints at Lovelocks with Hesson on a Friday night, and the other has no captaincy experience that I am aware of.

    This a a huge blow for SA cricket fans. Seeing how many millions of broadcast money gets thrown out in order to please the so called governing party (ANC), this is also hardly defendable.
    Since the SABC is the TV station of the ANC this means our government gives nothing about cricket .... all one could watch is third class soccer ...

    So guys like me will depend on you to get to know about the games afterwards .....

    I think I just go and cry a little ....
    Do you know what this means for the sky NZ and international broadcast?

    This is what happens when the 8th ranked team in the world decides to **** around their best players and doesn't do what it can to get them on the plane.

    Shocking.

    It'll be fine. It's not like Prime being allowed to air 1 or 2 matches per season ever has any effect on the international broadcasting of our home matches.

    I heard Richard Boock told Brendon Telfer he had an inkling that McCullum may well keep wickets in the Test matches.

    If that happens, then I will unleash all kinds of furious rage.

    It would also validate some of Fiery's recent claims.

    I call bull**** for now. But in the scenario that this is true, I guess our top 7 would be:

    Fulton, Guptill, Williamson, Brownlie, Flynn, McCullum, Franklin/Watling?

    Pfft, they just qualified it and it was nothing more than a thought Boock had himself rather than anything he had heard, so false alarm. Telfer clearly after ratings.
