    Hmm he would have been broken before that?? Early 2000's he snapped in half. Or was that about when it happened..

    Is this the main reason everyone around that 30yo mark atm have dissapeared? And who are the main ones to have been screwed? Sherlock?

    In terms of the genuinely fast guys Richard Sherlock, Te Ahu Davis, Hamish Bennett and another guy whose name escapes me all played for the New Zealand Academy and all broke.

    They're all in the 26 - 29 age bracket. Butler may have been one of them I guess.

    Burtt and Bennett were a bit later through the Academy than Sherlock. Taraia Robin was the other one O'Brien called out -

    The next Test is at the Basin Reserve?

    Recall Chris Martin.

    New Zealand should seriously play every single one of their Tests there though; what a ground.

    I knew it wouldn't be easy but I was a little disappointed by the bowlers. Did anyone bowl a decent yorker all day for instance?We just didn't have anyone capable of doing something out of the ordinary. Can't help feeling even an Astle (Nathan) / Coney type of bowler to come on and wobble the ball around a bit might have made life difficult for Finn.
    A result would only have been possible because England batted like *******s in the 1st innings.

    TLDR edition: this is a pitch where James Anderson couldn't dismiss Peter Fulton.

    I reckon Boxing Day test in Wellington, New Years test in Queenstown should be the norm.

    That would be awesome, but we struggle to attract teams over that time of year - and when we do the NZC priority appears to be their bottom line, which means ODIs and T20.

    True.

    It would be rotate Windies/Bangladesh Rahim/Zimbabwe/Sri Lanka/Pak wouldn't it?

    We'd never get Eng/Aus/SA/Ind at those times.

    I just want to see a test in Queenstown TBH

    Not quite what I was expecting - Cricket | NZ v England: Slow Pitch To Aid Home Side... | Stuff.co.nz

    New Zealand are likely to get their wish at the Basin Reserve with a slower than usual pitch against England as they look to break a run of six winless tests in Wellington.
    "It won't be as quick and bouncy as the South Africa test last year. There's quite a bit of scarring from the first-class matches. The block has copped a fair bit of traffic and it's ripped a bit of grass off," Sipthorpe said.
    Sipthorpe likened the current pitch to the one where New Zealand and India played out a draw in April 2009.
    I don't understand talk of winning and the slowness of the pitch in the same sentence. Seems like we're targeting a boring 0-0 series draw.
