    Gillespie gone?

    At the end of the innings a side is happy to go for 1 run a ball. If a death bowler bowls 3 overs at the end - there is 18 runs just like that. Add that onto decent figures off 7 overs and you very easily have 10 overs completed for over 5 rpo. And dont forget Gillespie has played in quite...

    Gillespie gone?

    IMO Gillespie will be a huge blow. He is able to bowl with good pace and that is massive for the make up of NZs line up. With him bowling first change there is no let up in pace after Bond finishes his first spell. Previously opening batsmen have been able to see of Bond as they knew dribbly...

    Bracewell criticises Ryder and McMillan

    How much more crap is Craig McMillan going to have to deal with. Does anyone else get the impression Bracewell doesn't like McMillan and wants him to retire. It is a big risk leaving him out of a 30 man squad. How can they pick Brad Scott. He is a little trundler from Otago that is not...

    ***Official*** Top End Series

    Davis and Sherlock Davis Please people can you stop going on and on about Te Ahu Davis. I'm sorry but blabbing on about a player that scared you at under 17 training is crazy. He has played 4 FirstClass and 3 OneDay matches without any success. He no longers has a contract with Northern...

    ***Official*** New Zealand in South Africa

    you are dead right. Sinclair did keep wicket for CD this season. They dropped Griggs. It was only for 1 or 2 games tho. Griggs is useless!!!

    ***Official*** New Zealand in South Africa

    IMO - the selectors will pick a very predictable squad for the tour of SA. Fleming, How, Marshall, Fulton, Astle, Franklin, Styris, Patel, Vettori, Bond, Mills, Martin, McCullum + Papps and Mason. Oram ??? Hasn't Bracewell come out saying Oram's record when he is not 100% fit is poor and he...

    *Official* New Zealand in Bangladesh Thread

    Hi everyone, Been reading for a while now and thought i would reply with some of my own thoughts.....and please remember that they are only that----my thoughts! Playing Richardson in the 'A' tests is not as stupid as it sounds. NZ need him to perform in Australia and he isnt gonna be on top...

    NZ 'A' announced

    i agree with you, probably aint the best look but then again it shouldnt really matter, look at other sportsman around the world. i suppose it doesnt help that NZ is a very conservative country. Hopefully Tamara gets back online and can explain what these "social issues" are.

    NZ 'A' announced

    reply thats interesting...... i heard that about Ryder, but have heard from many reliable sources (first class cricket players) that Gillespie doesnt even drink. So obviously someone is spreading rumours without any truth. I feel so sorry for those type of people....... Too many of them in...

    NZ 'A' announced

    nz a Does anyone know what the story with Jesse Ryder is. I keep hearing these stories that he isnt focused on his cricket. He looks awesome. And i have seen Gillespie from Wellington play and its looks like he has got something about him, he might have what it takes to be a future black...
