No Wheeler or Henry this round.
Ugh, CD's supposed to have the best fast bowling attack in the country and today they have:
at University Oval
Bracewell, Wheeler, Small all injured?
Good chance for Milne I guess.
Playing Otago as well, so anyone who takes a bag gets a feather in the cap.
Will probably be KNB or Trego.
A long time between wickets for Duffy, so that will be a bit of relief.
I watched a bit of him on the vault from the last game, he still can get lovely late (but slight) out swing when he pitches up, however drifted down leg far too often, and also got monstered whenever he dropped short by Papps/Pollard etc.
kippax, did you hint VJ was doing some work on his action? From what I saw he has a noticeably longer follow through, is now normal where as he used to stop with about 2 steps after release.

No mention of why Wheeler is absent. He's listed as 12th man but surely surely they didn't prefer the second spinner and Badenhorst over him .Central has made one change from the side which drew with Auckland in Napier last week. Legspinner Tarun Nethula comes in for injured seamer Doug Bracewell (adductor strain)
Henry missing the Canterbury game due to hamstring issues.

CD are a lot like the current West Indies. Curious selections, an all-rounder captain who doesn't really deserve to be in the side, an old school "man up, princess! everything can be solved with a bit more heart and grit!" vibe, a macho bull pen of young bowlers who bowl too short and with dodgy seam presentation.
Top order wickets for Duffy. I really, really like the look of him. In the Ambrose mold.
Also, Tommy Latham pressing his case.
Today's 1 (12) actually increases his season FC average !

Seems a lot like Wheeler got injured in warm-ups to me, if he was talking to that paper last night.
