    Iain O'Brien is a dead-set champion. I still recall him working tirelessly into the wind at the Basin, with no ego, just doing it because that's what the team required. And actually getting the ball through reasonably well, still.

    He was also a legend with the bat, I've never seen a man so passionately defend his stumps by thrusting his crotch at the ball

    I can't really recall many players to go such a massive transformation as O'Brien. Remember seeing him bowl a couple of times before he became genuinely good and he was an absolute spud of the rance-st order.

    After his first test vs Australia in 2005 I think ... thought he would seriously never be heard of again and disappear from domestic cricket within 12 months. Ended up becoming a bit of a local legend and it was a shame when he did end up hanging up the boots a bit early, if anything!

    Where are faster bowlers? We didn't have much fast bowling stock in the last U19s and this time around either. We may have to go back to the kind of lineup we had in mid 2000s in a decade to come unless we find some decent fast bowlers. I remember in the mid or late 2000s in one dayers we had bowling line up of Iain O'Brien, Ewen Thompson opening the bowling and Jacob Oram as first change against India. Sehwag smashed them all from memory.We don't want to go to those dark days.
    New Zealand had an absolute insane amount of talent (for a country of our size) come through during that 2008-2010 period of Under 19 cricket.

    Tim Southee, Trent Boult, Matt Henry, Doug Bracewell, Adam Milne, Lockie Ferguson, Ben Wheeler and even Andrew Mathieson who managed an ODI a few years ago now. Bevan Small, who after Tim Southee was probably the best teenage bowler I’ve ever seen in this country was in that 2010 World Cup team too.

    Henry, Milne and Ferguson actually all missed out on making that 2010 World Cup squad, that’s how stacked they were. Nine months later Adam Milne was running in for New Zealand bowling at 150k

    I think in few years time you could say the same about the 2016 U19s side. The side had the likes of Rachin Ravindra, Glenn Phillips, Finn Allen, Nathan Smith, Josh Clarkson, Ben Sears, Josh Finnie, Zak Gibson, Christian Leopard to name few. They didn't win much but I think this lot will contribute heavily to the Black Caps side in few years to come.

    2019 was all right but with Jacob Bhula showing his worth but can't think of too many other than of course the carry overs like Rachin Ravindra, Finn Allen, Felix Murray.

    ND 13 player squad. IIRC Southee had a minor niggle in Black Caps warmup (knee?) so assume won't play.

    Oh the NZ TAB don't have you as favourites. Time for you to lay a large piece on the line.

    Not much of a chance for Parkes to stake a claim over Dale Phillips yet. In club scores, a strong North East Valley have had Parkes a bit wasted down at No. 6 in the four T20s played so far; 15 runs from two knocks. Phillips had a 94 and has made 132 in total, but you could be right in seeking that Parkes over Phillips call in red ball cricket. You occasionally get some unsophisticated whackers like CD's Tryon who managed to top the runscorers at the U19 nationals without ever filtering through into FC, but I'm not sure Parkes was one of them.

    Not that I want to filter wind up your ND behind, but it would have to be nigh-on the first time a FC side has been assembled with 11 guys who have represented NZ? And in fact, the whole 12 if Southee carries the drinks?

    TAB bringing the heat putting them as outside favourites.

    This year my interest has shifted from Finn Allen, Rachin Ravindra, Ben Sears to Jacob Bhula, Dale Phillips and Felix Murray (hoping he's going to get a good go with CD this season). Always nice to follow domestic cricket. ND looks outstanding. Excellent line up from Canterbury and ND. Auckland and CD ain't bad either. Glad to see so many internationals turning up for this round of Plunkett Shield. Weather could play spoilsport though.
