I would take any runs scored and wickets taken with a grain of salt.

    Chances are the game was probably set up on far end of the pitch meaning the boundary could have been really short on one side. The real deal starts when India A and India start playing proper games of which the results matter.
    Tbf all A games are practice games. I don’t think anyone is taking them lightly because these are all guys vying for selection.

    Only the proper A games are official games and stats counts. The two games we had have no one day status. The NZ XI we provided this time is way stronger than we have in the past. We generally provide a mix of youth and experienced players that are not going to take part in the A side or the black caps side. This one has been an exception.

    How dare you assume a three-match series in NZ. Those are close to extinct.

    I actually deliberately changed all of the series lengths, but I'm glad you caught the only one that really matters.

    Lol.. I think 5 T20Is is good. I would have preferred a 3rd test instead of 3 meaningless ODIs though.

    They seem to be list A games according to cricinfo?

    yeah I guess since it was 11 vs 11 between a touring team and a host team with mainly FC players, it will be considered List A. It is possible that even being List A, the quality of the players and the ground (based on things like the wicket being too far on one side of the ground) were not quite the same as a regular List A domestic game even.

    Thread ought to be stickied given the tour begins in 3 days time?
    I've asked the mods not to sticky it until either they or Flem correctly capitalise the thread title.

    It's as list A but unofficial. For it to be official you need to have proper side such as a domestic side or a side that is recognized such as NZ A.

    Maybe it was and I didn't get it right. Will check and if it is that's great as JCT Boyle's top score of 130 will be counted and so will Prithvi Shaw's.

    In fact it was... My bad. JCT Boyle's 130 is registered as his highest. His average has now gone over 50 in list A after 19 innings, nearing 1000 runs shortly.

    On that note what's going on with Popli who was the domestic cricketer of the year not too long ago?

    Andrew Fletcher from last year the lad that scored record runs for Firebirds in list A is only set to play list A.

    You'd think Boyle's batting is much suited for red ball cricket. He has fantastic technique and a quality player. Strangely he's averaging 17 in first class and over 50 in one day. He played few good knocks in the super smash as well.

    They've been getting Boyle cheaply in first-class by beating or nicking his inside edge, that seems to be the really common one.

    Awesome work, comprehensive video. Probably playing drives at some of the balls that could be defended? Probably needs to whip some of those through leg side. That said we are fed to play straight all the time so pretty hard to change hitting areas after having grown up playing straighter. Some good nuts there though.
