    lol Auckland. It's a good bowling attack but those part timers should have to work much harder for their wickets.

    Golden-arm Shanan Stewart is back I see. I hope for Auckland's sake this is an un-EdenOO-like early season green seamer.

    Henry! Why talk about broken robot Bennett when there's Henry's actual class to drool over?

    95/7 is probably 400 runs short of par if this pitch turns out to be the usual Eden Park outer oval affair.

    Make that 95/8. Henry on a hattrick.

    Stewart's 2fer is hopefully going to be his one random golden arm spell of the season done and dusted.

    EDIT: Lack of Tastle in the attack after nearly 30 overs suggests maybe the deck is doing a bit?

    Henry bowling to Guptill must've been hilarious to watch.

    Given the way he's been shut out of the NZ test setup I wouldn't be surprised if he's been directed (explicitly or in not so many words) to do just that.

    It's a pretty normal balance for PS.

    But swap Van Beek for Ellis and B Cachopa and Astle drop down one.

    Hopkins always says it's an important toss ftr. Well-grassed on day 1 to advance the game, then just a fast road.

    I want Bartlett to lower his Eden Park ground average of 12 this afternoon against ****erbury.

    Matt Quinn top scorer from eleven

    But anyway, if Canterbury can keep Henry and Bennett and some support bowlers on the park this season, this might be the season they break out of the 'rebuilding phase' they've been going through for a few years now.

    I cant believe that, I popped into the ground for 20min when Raval and Cachopa were going things were looking pretty easy, and McEwen and van Beek pretty average. Overhead was perfect for swing bowling, thought it has fined up now, so maybe that is why things are a bit easier for Quinn

    Certainly doesn't look like a seamer's paradise.

    I wish Milne wasn't on the SL tour so he could be playing 4 day cricket as well...but anyway it would be nice to have someone of that pace as 3rd seamer so long as they're actually taking wickets.
    He's not gonna miss any FC cricket. CD don't play again before the start of the WI test series.

    That is such a weird schedule.

    There is a game for them a week before the 1st Test. Milne may play for NZ A instead though.

    Domestic | Canterbury in control despite Quinn's resistance

    Playing his first match since a finger injury while playing for Guyana in the Caribbean Premier League, Guptill flashed at a ball down the leg side only for Cachopa to leap to his left and take a superb one-handed catch.

    It wasn't the start the hosts were looking for and it didn't get any better nearly two overs later. Bennett was in the wickets again when Henry Nicholls caught a dying edge at third slip from batsman Tim McIntosh for one to leave Auckland reeling at 22-2.

    Cachopa launched the first of two sixes that ended up on Sandringham Road. An ensuing car had rolled over the top and had put grease on the ball, leaving umpires Gary Baxter and Barry Frost no choice but to replace the ball and it immediately paid dividends for the visitors.

    Raval, who struggled his way to 19 from 56 deliveries, was trapped in front by Matt McEwen. The medium fast bowler had a wicket in his next over when he bowled Auckland captain Gareth Hopkins for four.

    At 73-4 after 20 overs, Auckland still had plenty of work to do. That wasn't helped when the confident-looking Cachopa was caught by Logan van Beek from Shanan Stewart's first over for 31 to leave the hosts shivering at 73-5 after 21 overs.

    Stewart had his second wicket of the match soon after when McEwen took a good catch to dismiss Donovan Grobbelaar for four to compound Auckland's misery.

    Fulton got in on the action when he took the catch at first slip to dimiss Colin de Grandhomme for 16 as Auckland lost their seventh wicket of the session.

    Matt Henry then had two wickets in two deliveries when he clean bowled Bates to sit on a hat trick ball, which was kept out by Bartlett.

    Enter Quinn, whose innings provided Canterbury with more than a mouthful ahead of the lunch break.
