    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
    Yep, our wrist-spinners through history have been pretty **** eh?

    The problem with 'blooding' Ish at FC level is that he really won't learn a whole lot, international cricket probably the only place he is gonna develop

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

    Heh. Cricinfo has started with the commentary now. So your comment earlier on the slips was because Mominul edged Boult between them - sigh.

    Pleased Anderson keeping it tight so far.

    Is the ball just starting to reverse a bit? Or is that my overly optimistic imagination?

    attrition
    the new ball
    Yuss, score 1 for bangladeshi gifts

    Half a point for Anderson for keeping it tight making that pie even more tempting

    If you're averaging 50 in FC then clearly there's a reasonable amount to learn there. NZ domestic batsmen aren't exactly ace against spin

    Yeah, but you're also playing on pitches that don't give you much, from what I've seen all NZ spinners have pretty high FC averages, at least playing in different conditions would help a lot I'd have thought

    Doug's action looking real nice. Makes it easier to watch the ball flying to the fence.

    Indeed I cracked open a beer to pick it to pieces but it is looking more "complete" than usual.

    I'd like to believe that, but most NZ spinners have high averages because they're not very good. The only good one we've had in Vettori is also by no coincidence the only one to average under 35 for a substantial period, so I think the disadvantage of the pitches is pretty evenly cancelled out by the inept batsmen.

    Why was Anderson taken off. Is he just to be used as a partnership breaker?
