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...

Moeen is a perfectly fine bowler FFS
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.

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