    All will be forgiven if Brownlie tons up today. Fulton should start the series and be persisted with. I hope Raval takes the prime opportunity to ton up here though to keep the pressure on Rutherford and Fulton. Probably the most gentle pace attack he's faced so far.

    Very pleased to hear the groundsman is growing in confidence, but has he earned the right to prepare a good pitch?

    Cotterell cleans up two metre Peter with his first competitive delivery in New Zealand. He's going to have to have a really good tour if we are to win in the absence of Roach and Rampaul.

    He's 5-10kph quicker than Wagner tbf. he just didn't move the ball around much in those conditions. Gibson says he can swing the ball around nicely but just didnt execute properly in India. So let's see what he can do in New Zealand.

    EDIT: I see Rutherford is already tucking into him though. Short wide and quick is not going to get it done, I can pretty much picture those boundaries. Gabriel and Cotterell are quick but offer zero control. .

    Rutherford does his see-ball-hit-ball routine and is 23(11). Would be nice if he doesn't go one shot too many and gift his wicket today.

    Looks like Cottrell is bowling in the Rutherford zone.

    Brownlie gone. The danger of him up the order is he doesn't get forward, so if he gets hit on the pads it looks grim. This side is very light on batting (and the seam attack is ND second XI). Would hate to see what the two sides playing up north would do to this team, let alone Chanderpaul and his mates.

    Yeah, that's pretty much what I meant to say with the Wagner comparison. His first couple of tests he looked like he was trying too hard and hence his seam position was awful and he got no movement at all. He's still inconsistent in terms of getting swing but he occasionally gets some every now and then which makes him so much better than he initially looked.

    Cotrell being 10kph quicker makes him quite a threat if he can get that swing.

    Hmmm, Brownlie in a distinctly poor run of form. Possible that hendrix's favourite could get the nod at 3?

    If Latham tons up he will play. Redmond and Raval also a chance.

    Quite a difference in the efforts of the two bowling attack. Bowling Districts concede 52 off 29 overs, and the windies concede 51 off 8. Admittedly it's pretty much impossible to contain HRud once he gets a head of steam up - you either go for runs or you get him out. Still, Cottrell/Gabriel will need to tighten up for the tests.

    Huh, Brownlie's really developed some lbw problems this season.

    The Hamilton game will have heaps of swing there but I'm not so sure about Lincoln. Even half volleys are sometimes best left when a swing bowler is hooping it.

    Rutherford 50 off 29 balls. Guessing around 46 of those scored between cover and the keeper.

    HRud brings up his 50 off 29 balls against that promising WI quick Tugaga.

    Brownlie has always been prone to lbw because he hangs back and even when he moves forward it's a weight transfer more than a stride.
