    Hamish Rutherford

    What a performance so far, a century on debut against the 2nd best pace attack in the world. The way he bats reminds me of Sehwag i.e. minimal Footwork, great hand eye coordination, high strike rate (although this may only be unique to this innings) and severe on anything outside off stump. Could this be the beginning of NZ reasserting themselves as a respectable test match nation capable of challenging any team? Early days yet, but all I can say is world cricket needs its top 8 teams to all be competitive.

    Certainly a rather better start than his old man made

    It's not, Rutherford has generally tended to score his runs at a strike rate of about 70 in first class cricket.

    Now scored more runs than Ken did in his first 7 tests combined.

    Rutherford is a god among men and we can count ourselves lucky that he has deigned to descend to earth to walk amongst us mere mortals.

    There is no way this could go Matthew Sinclair wrong.

    There'll be a question mark around whether he can score "ugly" runs. He has a record which is a bit hot and cold. That said, it is the kind of thing a class player can teach themselves, and there's no reason not to be confident for the future.

    Geez, the action of the bloke at 1:00 in need of some 'remedial attention' surely.

    Still lacks in a couple areas, but times the leather off the ball and is naturally aggressive without being a slogger. That makes him vulnarable early on, but when he gets in seems to bat for long periods.

    Very promising!! Especially against this good attack.

    The bloke bowling at 1:02 has an interesting action...

    Edit: Would be the same bloke TC is talking about I'd imagine.

    As Kippax said, still big questions over his defensive technique imo, but he's started perfectly against a good attack and long may it continue.
