    Rudds, Devcich and late career Elliott aren't the greatest one day batsmen.

    I hope we get to see highlights of this. Molin de Golin make up for what they lack in technique with ridiculous ability to see a ball and hit it really really far at this level. If either of them had been crafted better in their youth to bat with reasonable techniques they'd be test cricketers. Molin did come to batting late, and it's surprising his ability wasn't spotted earlier in his club career.

    edit: I swear half an hour ago NZ were something like 120/4. How fast has this actually been?

    Not sure what Michael Leask is in his team to do since he's played so few games and is probably being blooded for the future but bowling him at Molin was cruel.
    39.6
    Leask to Munro, 1 leg bye
    39.5
    Leask to Munro, SIX
    39.4
    Leask to Munro, FOUR
    39.3
    Leask to Munro, FOUR
    39.2
    Leask to Munro, FOUR
    39.1
    Leask to Munro, no run

    This is like watching Under-15s batting against Under-11s. It's almost cruel but in an entertaining way. 293-4
    300 up in the 41st over. 150 from Munron who has gone from 50 to 150 in 50 balls. Babies with sweets would offer more resistance
    Yeah, this is what I feared the bulk of this tour would be all about tbh.

    Big Kiwi jocks, finding some anonymous English and Scottish women to tuck money into their g-strings, wax lyrical about their "pentecostal fire", and so on. Disappointed we didn't get into the current Darwin tourney.

    If bullying gets Watling in the world cup team then I'm all for it.

    Colin to give him some strike so he can get his 50

    Seems plausible given Anton scored 43, at a fairly good clip of 63 per 100 v pre teens too.

    I bet he sledged the kiddies mercilessly when he hit those four boundaries as well. 'Go fetch it ****ers'

    Sodhi felt at least the Northants batting made the game worthwhile.

    yeah i've heard some pretty bad things about him from hamilton club cricketers that i wouldn't dare repeat here in case it's not true.

    but if it is i can't think of a better candidate for sacrificial opener next time we play a test match against mitchell johnson.

    See a couple of South African type-As poured cold water on New Zealand's "pentecostal fire" overnight.

    New Zealand As batsmen crumbled against the spin of Seekkuge Prasanna in Cardiff and fell short of the Duckworth-Lewis target of 136 by 14 runs in their tour game against Sri Lanka A.

    New Zealand A made a blazing start to the chase with a flurry of boundaries and were 61 for 1 in the seventh over but Prasanna struck in each of his four overs to reduce the team to 96 for 6 after 15 overs. The Sri Lanka A bowlers kept the pressure on the lower order and bowled New Zealand A out for 121 in the 20th over.
    Seekkuge again, eh.
