Plus there are some major gems in the WI u19s that will be defending their title next year. Yadram, Kallicharan and Stewert bring just three names to mention. It's been a long time since we've seen this sort of talent coming up in the region imo and long may it continue.
    Carty, King and Paul are my picks for international honours in future. How about you?

    Carty because he's just st so solid, King because he has a touch of class and can really dominate when he's in and Paul because he's got fantastic cricket smarts with both bat and ball and has already demonstrated the ability to score aggressive hundreds and take cheap 5 wicket hauls, so he's potentially a proper all rounder.

    Don't rule out Fabian Allen yet. He's coming.

    I didn't see his hundred the other week. Was it any good?

    Is there any way to watch the replay of the 1st day stream or some highlights? Didn't catch any of it and wouldn't mind watching Ferguson bowling.

    Nope. Maybe in a day or two, but it doesn't look like we can at the moment.

    Not a great showing from NZ A with the bat today...

    This is the great thing about getting some A cricket in - we can talk all we want about which bowler or batsman might be ready for the step up based on domestic records, but then a bowling performance like yesterday can give from much stronger evidence that yes, Ferguson is getting really close, Van Beek Mark 2 is really bowling well, Bennett was lacking (perhaps justifying Kippax's theory that his early season success is on the back of quicker wickets than this), and Tastle is a massive risk and can be awful. Yes it's just one innings, but you could barely ask for better NZ selection indicators than that.

    Does look an unimpressive batting scorecard today, though I haven't seen any - perhaps WI have bowled well. Though I agree with the previous comments that it's an uninspiring batting lineup - apart from the NZ openers, the only one I'm particularly interested in seeing do well at the moment is Bruce, and he's 44*.

    Neesham's career really at a cross-roads and his FC/test game doesn't seem to be going anywhere.

    I'm a bit worried about Raval's form - one half-century from eight innings for Auckland and averaging about 24, and a laborious 1 today. He was bloody fantastic for us last summer, so I hope he comes good again.

    I'm not saying Raval is as reliant on roads as once thought - he's disproved that - but it still wouldn't have helped that EPOO has been far from a road this season so far. Plenty of chance to be nipped out early.

    The group of players that bridged the gap between Williamson/Latham and someone like Glenn Phillips definitely lost a bit with the drop in form of Will Young and Popli. There's not many names that deserved A team selection when it was originally announced.

    Entertaining innings from Astle.

    I'm not watching, but Astle's second innings figures sure are different to his first innings ones so far.

    Fair point, perhaps points to noone having quite that level of raw ability as those either. Young/Bruce/Nicholls/Popli all 25-27 and we do need a couple of those to fill a gap in one format or another.

    Disappointing from Bennett maybe he is just one of those guys not cut out for the next level, bit harsh but he really needed to take this opportunity as might not get another. Also would really love to see Ferguson playing in the first test, guess there is no one they can drop for him though.
