    I am a Flynn fan (flim-flam?) too. He seemed to me to have the skill and application, but a few dents to his confidence in an NZ shirt and his game just seemed to fall to pieces.

    Also, interesting to note that in the past few one-dayers Sodhi has been picking up wickets and keeping the runs-scoring under control.

    Yep, really encouraging signs.

    The 2nd innings scoring still hasn't started on blackcaps.co.nz for Otago-Auckland - rain?

    Sodhi continues his strong Ford Trophy campaign (admittedly on a pitch that appears to favour the spinners). Not entirely surprising I suppose. His faster pace and flatter trajectory is probably more suited to LO cricket at this point. There's also the fact that batsmen will be under more pressure to attack his bowling which could bring his well-disguised (by NZ standards) googly into play more often.

    Slightly tense finale in Hamilton - can Wellington not screw up this run chase?

    Meanwhile, rain in Auckland. Otago really can't catch a break in this competition.

    Invercargill in late March is always going to be a bit iffy, I guess.

    Whoa, wickets tumbling for Wellington now! This is getting tense.

    a certain South African leg spinner also does fairly well in ODIs, so it's inadvisable to read too much into it.

    A reasonable degree of erraticism seems to work well for a fair number of bowlers in limited overs cricket. Thinking McCleneghan, Finn, Starc, Tahir etc. A run-rate of 5 is very good in ODIs nowadays so the boundary ball is acceptable. It's a massive liability in test cricket though.

    also, loving Jeets' figures. He is the best spinner in NZ and probably the only one better than Williamson.

    I'm glad Wellington were able to limp home - their spinners bowled brilliantly and deserved the win. But the batsmen nearly made a meal of it!

    You have more protection for your pies in limited overs cricket too. Jason Krejza for example was always a better T20 and OD spinner in Australian domestic cricket than he was a Sheffield Shield bowler.

    Yeah, true. Watched a replay of his bowling from last week. He was producing about one rancid pie per over, but they kept getting hit to boundary fielders for one.

    Will Young seemingly put out of his misery in 2013/14. Replaced by Dave Meiring (27yo, but prolific for Manawatu for years now).

    Milne close but not quite ready | Stuff.co.nz

    The 21-year-old is expected to play club cricket in Manawatu today then join the Stags tomorrow. He'll bowl some overs and undergo some sprints and fielding to prove his fitness for the Stags' final match in Dunedin on Wednesday, by which time they could be out of playoff contention if they lose to the Firebirds.

    "We've agreed to a plan and we've got to stick to it. We could certainly use him [tomorrow] but it's 4-5 days too soon," Stags assistant coach Lance Hamilton said.

    "We don't want to push him and risk a recurrence. With the weather we've had, he just hasn't had the workload and we can't risk him in a 50-over game."

    Milne would have been a certainty for the World Twenty20 had he remained fit, such was the impact he had against West Indies and India. Making New Zealand's tour of the Caribbean starting in late May is his next goal.

    Milne had worked closely with New Zealand Cricket's medical staff and travelled three times to Christchurch to bowl under their gaze in recent weeks. Hamilton believed there wasn't yet a need to tweak Milne's action despite his struggles to stay on the park.

    "It was an issue of bowling loads. Over a short period he bowled quite a few overs at a high intensity, higher than he'd ever bowled before. There was nothing biomechanical that was highlighted."
