    On a related note, I thought Kaneh's action looked less suspect yesterday. Though maybe that's just my wishful thinking that our best spinner is a long term bowling option.

    I think we can all agree that Jeetan Patel is the silver bullet.

    It's strange that someone with such a nice batting technique ended up with such a dodgy bowling action.

    some stats:

    Over the past 2 years, NZ's opening bowlers have been 3rd best in the world, narrowly behind Australia (South Africa clearly dominate) but ahead of Anderson and Broad.

    On the other hand, bowlers 3-5 average 39. That's second to worst on the list - marginally better than Bangladesh, and worse than Zimbabwe.

    Does McHesson not rate Anderson's bowling. I thought he was supposed to be our Shane Watson and come on first change. Will he more be used as an Oram like bowler who gets through 5-10 overs a day?

    My verdict on Bartin's first over is that it was worse than a piece of **** on toast.

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

    I am going to try to find some footage of Doug from a few years ago as he used to have such a magnificent action when he could swing it.

    By good spinner in the Lord's Test, do you mean one that can score a fourth innings century? Otherwise that's a fairly lengthy bow you've drawn.

    Give Ish a couple of years to learn his trade at FC level, rather than blooding him way, WAY too early and we might have one. History tells us that's unlikely to happen. Heaven forbid we get as bad at managing spinners as our trans-Tasman brothers

    why didn't we have a 2nd slip? wait we had some funky new age half slip/half gully position instead.

    Just as well baz is so good at t20 cricket.

    Mominul has been riding his luck. Just bowl at his off stump rather than outside off stump and he will eventually do something daft. I don't rate this century.
