    Chatarunga de Silva bossing it as well, looks like we have a few decent guys on the fringe of the LO set-up in SL, Seekkuge, Chatarunga, Priyanjan

    Tbf, thats some seriously good drift and dip. Those ****s who were out sweeping or hoicking across the line needed to be playing much straighter.

    Kippax, does your viewing tell us if Bracewell bowled well, or just hit the deck hard and beat batsmen for pace ala Bennett?

    Nah there's no footage from this current tour in the vault yet.

    I actually watched a bit of 2011 Dougeh the other day, I was trying to pinpoint the exact match where he lost it.



    So yeah, he came back from Hobart and still had a hold over the domestix until about New Year's Eve, 2011. God knows what happened that night.

    Yeah he's always been like that. Massively improved his 'batting'/hitting lately too; I'd strongly consider him for the World Cup in Aus/NZ where more orthodox spin bowling techniques are nerfed.

    I wonder if he'd have to bat at 7 to justify his selection though, not sure we'd play him at 8 or lower

    Finn was scheduled to be playing for England Lions in the triangular series against New Zealand A and Sri Lanka A and he has been replaced in that squad by Warwickshire fast bowler Boyd Rankin
    Was hoping Jason Roy would be joined by another 'so hot right now' Surrey product tbh, Matt Dunn.

    Yuck. I know it's a T20 but most of those wickets were ****ing horrific. Surely batsmen can still at least ask bowlers to get them out with a decent delivery.

    I can't blame Bradburn this time.

    I relished the chance for some exaggerated personality stereotyping the last time there was a virulently slow-learning and wasteful mood in the air of the NZ A setup. I'll have to pin this on last year's co-captain (Devcich) from now on.
