    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Tastle has allegedly been working on more pace through the air. Yet to see it though.

    We'll know he's combined pace with accuracy when he bowls some random team (Wellington) out for 10.

    The thing about Todd Astle is that he just doesn't really put that much on the ball by Test spinner standards. If he bowls quicker through the air he won't get enough turn or drift to trouble anyone; he pretty much has to bowl at the pace he bowls to create problems unless he just straight up becomes a much better bowler. I really like him but I think if he's going to make it as a Test cricketer it has to be at least partly on the strength of his batting, and he will never be a stock bowler.

    A good coach would probably be able to get Phlegm to bowl 80km/hr with a leg spin action within a couple of seasons but they'd be nude balls.

    Scot's qualified for the final of the GC?

    Historically not the strongest sporting school.

    without knowing anything about anything, I'd have to guess they've made some good scholarship imports.

    Hate to see Wellington going the way of the Auckland schools but I guess Coll have been doing it for years and they're meant to be a public school...

    The dismissal of TD Astle was GW Aldridge's 300th wicket for Northern Districts.

    A lot of investment has gone into that scool of late. They have their own indoor facility and I beleive they have quite a strong fill time coaching staff.

    I watched some Matt Henry in the vault v ND, trying to get a decent look at him v LHers as he had a decent bowl at Flynn and Devcich with the new ball. Gee, Devcich plays with a closed face, he looked pretty awful. But anyway, was hard to tell as was front on camera, but my god he bowls we'll to RHers, he had Kugs playing and missing 5 times in a row at one stage.

    Speaking of Kugs, watched his opening spell, and he was good (to Latham, Brownlie, Stewart, plus Nicol who he got first ball). Really worked over Stewart before getting him played-on. Prior to this I had only watched his wicket balls on the scorecards this season, but I reckon he is really progressing, he may eventually overtake some of the more fancied bowlers currently rated ahead of him.

    Also watched Bennett last night, so memory more scratchy, but also good, Canty should use a short leg when he is bowling based on that game.

    Johnsonville Cricket Club - News

    Rakitha Weerasundara has been selected in a 15 man NZ under 19 squad to contest the Provincial A tournament
    El cheapo build-up for the U19s there, probably not the worst idea though. Bevan Small to face, Greg Hay and T Mac to dismiss, etc.

    Is there any team that Bradburn is not the coach of.

    ND having the most players in the squad with Bradburn as coach and selector? Never!

    Is Luke Williamson a relative of KW? Same province etc..
