    Or Carter and Fletcher could strike at less than a run a ball and leave it all to McConchie. 6 needed from 6... edit: and good boundary from Fletcher for the win

    2020/21 New Zealand Domestic Season

    Good pace from Sears - no speed gun obv but looks rapid. Think he was lucky with the lbw v Mitchell though - looked high to me. Canterbury should still walk this - McConchie cake while others provide the modest impetus still required. Makes sense to me that more umpires would wear a helmet, or...

    2020/21 New Zealand Domestic Season

    Just saw Bracewell getting sconed :-O. On the one hand that seems like awful luck, on the other it's kinda surprising that sort of thing doesn't happen more often given the way the ball flies off the #bigbats these days.

    Finally some runs for Neesham - has been in awful form with the bat.

    Daryl Mitchell in fine form this super smash. Hasn't started well for NZ in T20Is though could still push CDG for his spot with a good series against Oz (CDG doesn't have a great T20I record either). Similar to CDG the power off the bat looks effortless.

    Definitely a guy. Ian Bradshaw was actually quite good at what he did, but did it in a very nondescript way.

    Imagine being a discount Ian Harvey (also a guy). It's true though.

    This thread was sitting for a week on the first cricket chat page looking so nondescript that I didn't even take a look until now. Is this thread a guy? Saw a guy the other day on some youtube cricket highlights, got that slight tingling feeling you get when you visit a recess of your brain...

    There aren't many U25s around atm, shows that Plunket Shield sides are hard to get into right now. Several like Seifert, L Carter, McClure recently turned 26. But for U25s you're basically picking everyone, so add Smith and: J Field D Foxcroft K Clarke J Bhula Edit: J Boyle sneaks in too. As...

    *Unofficial* New Zealand Black Caps Thread

    If the next ODI world cup is in India that makes it much more likely that Latham retains a spot in the middle order - he was gun last time in India. Other than that it's hard to get too excited about ODIs at the moment; it's a rebuilding/reconfiguring of the side but without any road tests in...

    3rd Test at the SCG, Sydney, 7 Jan - 11 Jan 2021

    Thought India had blown this match by dropping catches on day 1, but these wickets has brought the contest right back. Far more interesting for the neutral.
