    Meet Kyle Jamieson, a 6’8 James Anderson

    I don’t think I’ve seen too many bowlers swing the kookaburra ball both ways like we’ve seen him manage to do. With his height, pace and ability to swing it late New Zealand actually have a serious prospect here. Obviously sterner tests will come when he travels overseas, but God damn he is...

    Martin Crowe: Test cricket's young Fab Four | Cricket | ESPNcricinfo.com As Martin Crowe named them years ago for those who have never heard nor read the article Pretty cool really.

    The "Please fire Gary Stead and Gavin Larsen" thread

    Calling on all New Zealand fans, we need to band together and push for these two incompetent morons to be fired. Plenty of journalists from around New Zealand read this forum (dead serious I know of two who use CW) so lets get this ball rolling. Yes this World Cup isn't going badly but us true...

    The 'How is Luke Ronchi still an international cricketer' thread

    Can't bat, can't keep, looks like a spaz. Somebody explain his continued selection

    I've had enough, Virat Kohli.......

    .... is a good player, great when it comes to the limited overs stuff. But if he isn't the most overrated player going around at the moment then I don't know who is. Sky Sports named their present World XI and this cat not only made the team, he was named as the captain. I mean come on. The so...

    Where are all dem haterz now?

    A thread for players who were deemed unworthy of World Cup selection but are putting in good to excellent performances so far and thus proving the haterz wrong.

    Blatant Trolling?

    Is this not it? This is pretty much all from a six hour period in the New Zealand - Pakistan tour thread. I've made my thoughts on WW clear in the past, but this is ridiculous. Not only that, I believe he gets away with this sort of crap because CW has one or two West Indies fans. You don't want...

    Are we really going to pretend that Tim Southee...

    .... isn't the second best quick in test cricket behind Dale Steyn?

    Just how underrated is Ross Taylor?

    Had a discussion with a couple of people the other day about where you'd lump Ross Taylor in as a test cricketer, not so much as right now but over his whole career. I brought up the fact that he had a similar career record to Kevin Pietersen, albeit with half the games played. Now Pietersen...

    Hey guys, Phlegm scrawling all over Howsie's posts here. In this "original post" you'll find the contract lists (cheers Auckland Cricket) and the domestic schedule. I also hope to put up links to the scorecards in here. There's lots of little things I reckon we can implement to make this thread...

    Overcoming bowling yips

    Is it easy? Firstly I didn't really know a quick bowler could get them (searching has proven me wrong there) and who knows I might not even have them but I was talking to one of our clubs older players and he was pretty convinced I might have them. I found something Simon Hughes published three...

    Brendon McCullum

    What the heck is up with him, he has so much batting talent but really hasn't improved that much. He dominated Youth teams and came into the NZ team at an early age, should he be better then what he is? And what about his technique, how would you rate it?

    Bowling Action:Video Included

    My mate just wanted me to upload his video onto youtube and I thought I would help him out by putting it on here too. I don't really know to much about fast bowling so any tips would be helpful and I will get him to read this forum. The video is just of him running up of 4-5 steps because he...

    Ian Bell

    I was just searching through another thread and I saw someone post up the amount of times Ian Bell has scored a century when someone else from the same team has also scored one. I know Bell is or was rated highly by some people, but looking at these stats he doesn't fair too well. In test...

    Phil Mustard

    What ever happend to this guy, I remeber when England was in NZ and he actually looked half-decent trying to score fast at the top of the order for England. I know he only averaged 23.3 but he had a strike-rate of 92. Why did he only get ten games, and how far is he down in the pecking order...
