    Come on, one more wicket. Would be really good to get Munro in before the ball is nice and old for him to smack it around.

    That ****ing attack watchman is standing very still at the crease, thwarting Jeets' push for victory.

    Ajaz is a left arm spinner who bats in the lower order and joins the Devon Hotel Central Stags contracted list for the first time. In his debut year for the Stags Ajaz proved in Plunket Shield cricket, and in tandem with Tarun Nethula, that he can be a match winner. Formally a left arm pace bowler Ajaz only recently started bowling spin, and with this rapid rise to first class cricket, his progress in the coming season will be watched with much interest.
    This is a small red flag to me. He is 24 years old and he has just taken up spin.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Ah good, Wellington need 80 off 21 overs. The second straight week JimmyGS will be bowling two bouncers an over, testing the umpire's discretion with the other four.

    But why did CD bat so long this morning? Did they really think Auckland would get 349 from 73 overs? As pace bowling is their strength, why wouldn't they have wanted at least 5 overs with a second new ball?

    Sounds like a pretty positive and proactive guy. Can't have been easy being kept out of all cricket for 2 years. Really hope he can continue his good start to the season
    Good article, I'm delighted with how well he has been going this season in his comeback to FC cricket.

    Good on him.

    The deep shame of cutting a deal with Wellington last month and losing.

    Anyway, Heinrich's in an awkward spot with KNB as captain tbh. "Thanks Kieran, but I really liked the South African-style no-nonsense run production of this guy who averages 45 to your 30, Hay. We've got a good biffer in Trego for now, thanks".

    Bennett and Tastle...they've been brilliant so far this year. 34 wickets at 25 between them.

    I can't remember if it was here or cricsim I picked Canterbury to win it because they were the most likely team to retain most of their good players from international duty. Looking good so far, even though half the top order can barely buy a run. How many 50s has Brownlie scored in a row btw? Seems to get a start every game then fail to convert.

    Frustrating draw for CD. The patented Plunket Tail Wag strikes again. We desperately need some runs because 4-7 can't save us every game. I wonder if Smith has changed his technique from last season too, since I didn't recognise him the first time I watched him in the vault this year and I remember him having a compact How/Cachopa hybrid style, but maybe that is just my memory playing tricks on me.

    Phlegm's just reminded me that I never ended up making a post in here after my seeing Hay in the vault, so I thought I'd do so now. His footwork was by and large very good - predominately a back foot player but he got forward when it was pitched up and even played a very nice drives off the spinners, and he has a good defensive setup on both foot.. He was very good at using the pace of the quicks to hit the ball behind square, as we've always heard.

    His front foot game against the quicks, despite reasonably footwork, still leaves a lot to be desired though. He definitely likes to throw his hands at it outside off even when his feet aren't quite there (which isn't a criticism of his footwork as much as his shot selection, as such) and he definitely isn't a player you'd ever accuse of having "time". I reckon the first thing every batting coach he's had would try to do with him is change that backlift; he basically goes through the initial whole process of playing a shot 1.5 times every ball, which gives him less time to actually get his hands through, creating the appearance of being so late on everything. I can definitely see why he wasn't particularly high in the Test match pecking order earlier on despite his good numbers but he should be in the CD team.

    I did.

    There's a shot in there off Michael Bates (iirc) where he just treated him with disdain. He saw it so early and even though it would have been a high risk shot to someone 10kph faster, he just put it through his favourite area regardless and make it look so easy.

    But yeah as I said in my own post, everyone who has seen him must be amazed by that ridiculous backlift. Martin Crowe, that well known lover of huge back lifts, will kill a puppy the day he sees it.

    edit: which two would you have picked for England 2008 out of interest, now you have seen all three bat: Marshall, Flynn, Hay?

    I know, that's why I brought it up.

    I think he sees it early enough, that's why he can "get away" with that backlift, but it does make it appear as if he's rushing to play his shot at the last minute all the time despite getting into position early, which is really strange. I suppose you could say that he has time but doesn't use it effectively.
