    Thats because of the fundamental differences between sports and academics. Sports mostly require natural ability alongside practice with a little bit of intelligence. Therefore most "couch potato's" can form a valid opinion on what is required to be a good cricketer in a way that they never can for say politics or economics.

    I was impressed with all three batsmen. Hadn't seen much of Rutherford or Devcich before but both seemed to time the ball pretty well. I guess Rutherford would have faced a bit of Finn previously with Otago in the nets. Good for him to get a look at Broad before the internationals start.

    Interesting comments The guru about Devcich's rugby background. I hope you're right, as he seems to have some raw ability and timing.

    I'm gutted the game was washed out, was looking forward to seeing Munro in action.

    I've also been talking white ball cricket. I think he is indeed a rough diamond

    I've already mentioned his very good HRV Cup and he finished behind only Sinclair (for those with more than 2inns) in last years Ford Trophy. Sinclair averaged 95 to Devcichs 90, both from 8 games

    So in view he is performing nicely at the first class level in the coloured clothing and its what he has been picked for...

If you don't actually play Hamilton club cricket though you just get slated on the forum itself and called a couch potato it seems.

    Perhaps not but you do post with two accounts so unless you can give a good explanation for that you're on your ass.

    I wish I could have all the time back that I've watched Devcich bat in First Class cricket.

    Actually, thinking about it, despite having seem him bat about half a dozen times, I reckon I'd only get about five minutes of my life back.

    Carry on.

    Devcich obviously has his sights set firmly on the CW real life XI
