    This part definitely rings true:


    Definitely seems like someone who will bowl 140 one day and 130 another. Have watched him a few times on domestic highlights and sometimes been surprised by how little bounce he generated, but then other days he can get that extra bounce like he did one ball in that last over (the first over).
    Mills has shown you don't need to bowl 140+ in ODIs to have a successful career in the format. He bowled in a good area with a little bit of swing today, so I was impressed.

    Doing well? He's tried to play quite a few aggressive and risky shots but is still striking at just 50. Davids looked good in the T20

    Really don't like the ongoing use of spinners while the balls are still new. Give Neesham a go.

    Absolutely - I have no problem with him intentionally not bowling full speed in exchange for more control in ODIs. Was more commenting on him being a very rhythm-dependent bowler particularly if he ends up playing tests for us.

    Doull calling Neesham a part timer is starting to grate. Bowls first change for Otago and is a genuine bowler at FC level.

    Well, he's outscoring more established batsmen. Whatever that means.

    But yeah. Too slow.

    I wonder if Ingram is just an attempt at getting a work horse to replace Kallis. Mmmm.

    Predictably with this lineup, our bowling is poor once the openers are off. Can't rely on Franklin to bowl spells of more than a couple... or NcCullum for that matter. Should bring on Neesham obv. Elliott really looks the odd man out in our team.

    well caught NcCullum

    Ingram was in. No need to play that.

    Superb catch. Good bowling by Williamson - I was thinking they should have brought on Elliot, but a good call.
