    Mat,

    I remember your catch against Australia in this game off the bowling of Oram to get out Hayden), is the best catch you have ever taken? And when you pointed to the crowd was that giving some banter back?

    hi Matt,

    its great to see you back here.

    Why do you think The Blackcaps have been performing so badly lately? I personally think its about time for some heads to roll

    Cheers

    Do NZ FC cricketers earn enough in the summer to support them and their family through the rest of the year comfortably? I ask this to understand the professionalism with which they approach cricket

    yeh i think so we dont to be honest have the playing numbers here in nz and our stocks of fast bowlers is getting better in my opinion provided they dont get injured.. we here in nz have relyed on dibbly dooblies i call them due to the nature of our wickets tghat is changing now because the wickets are getting flatter and bowlers of this slow medium pace nature working harder for there wickets

    Hey, Matt.

    Who's the best batsman you've player with and for. And what did the crowd say to you before you took that amazing catch in Melbourne a couple of years back?

    i think a lack of the senior players not stepping up and taking a lot of the responsibility

    hard to know mate performance is a hard one to pinpoint obviously when we arent winning thats when questions want to be answered,give it some time we are a very young and up and coming team with very little experience and we have a long way to go yet

    good question we do in the summer but you tend to find cricketers head off overseas as we are not paid fulltime for the whole year like other countrys so we have to head overseas and earn over there..i reckon when and if nz cricket start employing a fulltime contract of first class players we will get so much better.cheers

    Mat,

    Thank for your reply.

    I'd also like to ask you about two Central batsmen - Greg Hay and Brad Patton.

    Hay has an excellent record as a young batsman in all forms of the game, particularly given the typically bowler-friendly nature of New Zealand domestic cricket, but he had limited opportunities last season. Is there a feeling within the Stags camp that he has something particular to work on before he's ready for regular First Class cricket, or was it a simple matter of him being slightly down on form and confidence? There have been murmours around that he struggles in tough batting conditions and has his record slightly inflated by the flatter Napier wicket - is there any truth to this?

    Patton's a really interesting one. Unless I'm much mistaken, he was more known as a medium pacer in his youth, but his batting has really come on later in his cricketing life.. as he showed last season. I'm yet to really get this confirmed though and there's precious little information available about him anywhere, so anything you could tell us about him at all would be absolutely fantastic. I'm always fascinated by the late bloomer.

    Mat,

    Dan is the only man for spin attack? Jeetan just shows his head in a few games and disappear again.

    As NZ pitch doesn't suit much for Spinners, Why doesn't Jeetan form a permenant playing XI member in the overseas squad?

    Is the NZ board not encouraging spinners as their pitches doesn't suit the spinners?

    We have seen many medium pacers from NZ but, not the spinners.

    Will there be any future improvement in the Spinning attack?
