    Rain annoys me less when three of the players I most want to perform aren't even playing.

    Neither of the injuries look serious but it's quite a habit for both Henry and Anderson to get these minor injuries that keep them from playing.

    CD player grapples with a modern world that isn't just going to assume he's 'good for it' as far as flying or driving is concerned. No surprises there.

    Sitting around in hotel rooms during monsoons, this is actually good prep for being a Blackcap.

    Sodhi suggesting Munro isn't there yet either.

    Tomorrow's two-dayer could be so 'Hawke Cup', even Lance Hamilton gets a run.

    Let's just hope there's play on the second day. I'd like to see how Shrikant Wagh performs in this tour. He's played for Australian Institute of Sport earlier.

    The line-up for the match will be (in batting order):

    Tom Latham(c) Canterbury Wizards
    Neil Broom Otago Volts
    Carl Cachopa Central Stags
    Daryl Mitchell Northern Knights
    Luke Ronchi Wellington Firebirds
    James Neesham Otago Volts
    Derek de Boorder (wk) - Otago Volts
    Todd Astle Canterbury Wizards
    Doug Bracewell Central Stags
    Ish Sodhi Northern Knights
    Mark Gillespie Wellington Firebirds

    Anton Devcich (12th man) Northern Knights

    Matt Henry will sit out the match with a slight side injury, while Corey Anderson is sidelined with a haematoma on his quad. Adam Milne is the other player not to feature, having only just joined the team in India. All three players are expected to be available for the next match starting 2 September.

    Astle and Sodhi in the same side...could be plenty of runs there but it doesnt matter as it's about development.

    lol at Ronchi batting 5.

    I feel so sorry for Neil Broom. With Ryder out until next year and Brownlie and Guptill fighting a feracious battle for the title of "world's ****test middle order bat" he's got a real chance to push for a place. And what happens? ****knuckle selectors make him an opener on the NZA tour...just 'coz. That top 6 is a disgrace and whoever selected the squad for this tour should get sacked (if they haven't been already).

    apart from the Broom opening thing, the side makes sense from a development perspective. Obviously if they were going for a win there's no way Astle and Sodhi would be in the same team. Hell, that was probably forced by Milne and Henry's unavailability anyway.

    I think it's pretty clear that Latham is being groomed for the opener's spot and they want to give Rutherford an extended go. Is there another opener in NZ who's calling for it?

    Obvious obvious answer is Flynn and I really don't know what he's done to piss someone off.

    Plunket Shield bowling attacks would be lining up to bowl at that batting line up, let alone international A sides. The players themselves are decent but the squad balance is truly disgraceful.

    Nah ****, Brownlie is gun. I like Guptill as a dude but he isn't currently capable of scoring hundreds like the one Brownlie scored in SA.

    They should be going for the win because that's how you develop. You can't expect to develop players without winning games anyway. This is what I hate about the NZ A programme: they've admitted in the past it's all about development.

    Flynn and/or Raval should be over there. We need two openers at a bare minimum, and instead we have three wicketkeepers and 25 allrounders.

    If they're going for the development option than it's hard to see why Jeet Raval's been snubbed, given his efforts in the last couple of seasons (put more runs on the board than Rutherford last year iirc). And unlike Latham he, y'know, actually opens for his province. Why the selectors seem determined on manufacturing an opener out of Latham, just because he's done it a few times in List A cricket isn't exactly clear to me.

    And yes, then there's Flynn's absence, the fact that Neesham usually bats at number 8 for Otago, that playing both Ronchi and de Boorder is a waste of a middle order spot, and the small issue that Cachopa ****s himself whenever confronted by anything shorter than a half volley.

    fmd.
