    I guess the main issue with high backlifts is they leave you vulnerable to being beaten for pace. We've had all time greats with huge backlifts, but they're not the norm. The angle Hay's bat comes down at is also something I've been thinking about since he has to rotate the blade and get the bat down quick enough to close the gate. I'd be interested to know how he handles an inswing fast bowler like Adam Milne in the nets, and in a match situation as soon as Hay came in I would get my inswing or fast bowler on. But hey (Hay), maybe he will prove he is one of those special few who can get away with it (he definitely can in the Shield). He wouldn't be the first or the last and he has good footwork which is essential if you're going to have a backlift like that so you can at least get decisively forward or back (CdG springs to mind as someone with a Hay-esque backlift but poor footwork).

    The outcome is what matters; if you have a high backlift, you better be able to see a ball, adjust for movement and play it late. Because most with a high backlift cant.

    Conversely, if you have a low backlift, you better be able to drive down the ground. Because most with a low backlift can't.

    It's a bit different wiuth Hay though in that it's not so much the height of the backlift but how much there is to it - up down, up, down again - it takes up more time to do all that, which prevents him from getting his arms through and driving down the ground, something a high backlift should actually help. That's why his best shots are square off the back foot.

    Had a good read of the club cricket results this morning. Taita defeated Easts away at Kilbirnie! Defeats for Easts don't come along often, so make the most of it. I think it was by 9 runs in the end - Taita's score underpinned by a 50 from Walsh and 39 from Mark Houghton. Houghton then took 3 in the Easts innings. The Dominion Post failing to credit Lance Dry's bowling figures with the couple of wickets he took on the scorecard another highlight. 3 run outs for Easts too. Another surprise was Karori being soundly beaten by Hutt Districts.

    I'm a bit confused as to how things work for the 50 over tournament, but according to Cricket Wellington, the league table looks like this:

    Top 4:
    Eastern Suburbs 33;
    Taita 32;
    Hutt District 27;
    Karori 24;

    Repecharge 8:
    Upper Hutt 27;
    Wellington Collegians 24;
    Petone-Eastbourne 22;
    Johnsonville 20;
    Wellington U20 19;
    University 15;
    Onslow 12;
    North City 9;
    Wainuiomata 0;
    Naenae Old Boys 0

    After this weekendís set of seventh round One-Day matches the Ewen Chatfield Cup splits into the top four and the bottom ten.

    The top four play against each other in a three-match round-robin series on 14 and 21 December and 18 January to determine who will meet in the 50-over final on 26 January and at the same time the bottom 10 play the sides they havenít already played with them striving to get the last two spots in the Pearce Cup for the second half of the season.
    Disappointed Weerasundara hasn't got Johnsonville into the Pearce Cup. He's on Siddons' radar though, played okay in a virtual Firebirds trial match in the Tararua Shield yesterday -

    Lance Dry also on Siddons's radar.

    It would be good if Dry suggested they have a look at this Taita 17-year-old Chander Ravi in the National A tournament in a couple of weeks, actually. More for the immediate sake of Bradburn's U19s than Welllington per se, who will probably feel compelled to boom it with Elliott at 3 for several more years.

    More of a composed anchoring bat than RW, he had a very good 92(148) knock against Easts for the U20s. There he is getting out in the Gillette Cup last week, but I see he made a dominant 124 a day or two later -

    So yeah, a pair of Asian Wellingtonians could be opening in an U19 World Cup. We haven't brought so much to the table since Franklin and JP McNamee's 1998 heroics.

    My colleague watched the whole Gillette cup tournament. Reckons the CHBS openers were the business. Stanley and Burnett with Burnett being better. Scot colleges other player is a "Lawrence" I think. He took 2/11 off ten overs in one game. And bats number 3. I guess in high school it is not a big deal to bat 3 and open the bowling. You already know this but just for others Ravi is a decent spinner too.

    There was a Mount Albert Grammar batsman who was outstanding as well. Actually scrub that they're twins the Dhadwells?

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

    Yeah all of your intel there is backed up by the stats, by the looks.

    Albi to laugh at how schoolboyish that loop is from Ravi, but Bradburn with relish the balanced skill set he offers his skipper in Dubai conditions.
