    *Unofficial* New Zealand Black Caps Thread

    Brent Arnel has retired as well, I never understand why teams cant give guys like Nicol and Arnel the heads up before the end of the season, so that the guys can have a bit of celebration around there last game, run a few puff pieces in the papers etc.

    *Unofficial* New Zealand Black Caps Thread

    Couple of comments about Western Springs, as a stadium. There is no easy public transport to there currently, the closest train station is 25min walk (at Morningside – which is adjacent to Eden Park). There are buses to and from the city, and I would expect that AT will put on extra event buses...

    ***Official*** England in New Zealand 2018

    Also very nice in Kingsland, been pretty settled, for last couple of hours, don't think it will last all afternoon, same as yesterday, NZC has been a bit unluckly with weather. Part of it is there own making by as its just not warm (as autumn and night time) enough to dry the ground quickly...

    ***Official*** New Zealand Domestic Season 2017/18

    I guess that means he is out for the first test than. Or latham is going to keep and BJ will open.

    As if Auckland's pathetic start to the season couldn't get any worse, it would appear they have also managed to break Lachie Ferguson.

    NZC Chief: 'A typical tour will be two Test matches', WI test dropped.

    Looks like David White is going to extend this to cutting back on 4 day cricket as well https://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/cricket/95669647/plunket-shield-set-for-major-cut-after-this-season-as-longform-cricket-under-microscope Feels like we have gone back in a time warp to the post lockout schedule.

    England in New Zealand 2018

    Just to add to this the hearing is due to occur this coming Friday/Monday. There is no way NZC will have an answer from Council in the next few days. From the energy NZC is putting into getting consent I would say those dates for a day or night test are probably 75%. I guess the only variation...

    ***Official*** Ireland Tri-Nation Series 2017

    If he does score runs in this series its almost the worst possible result as than they will believe they can open with him at Champions Trophy like last time and he will be **** again

    ***Official*** South Africa in New Zealand 2017

    It feels like we get robbed by our own weather significantly more than it saves us, i.e. WI 2013 1st Test. WI 2008 2nd Test, Pak 2009 3rd Test.

    ***Official*** South Africa in New Zealand 2017

    As a cricketer his selection is a no brainer, should of occurred months maybe years ago, if not for the rape charges, but even though he was adjudged not guilty the second time around, that doesn't equate to innocent in many peoples minds. Long time fans will be/ have been turned off the team...

    ***Official*** South Africa in New Zealand 2017

    Im generally curious how this plays out in public opinion, I firmly believe that this is a bad selection now for the PR stuff, but his selection at some point in the future is inevitable. The one day lead in is a benefit for Hesson.

    If kane is only going to bowl 5-10 overs of spin an innings like he has most of the summer baring Dunedin, than yes you can play Santner as an alrounder. But that is more of a reflection on Kane's captaincy..

    ***Official*** South Africa in New Zealand 2017

    From a media perspective I would expect them to debut Kugz overseas/hidden in the rugby season. Will be a ****storm if he was to be selected now, and an absolute distraction to the team.

    And land the ball on the seam so at least Boult will have a chance to get some swing for 6 overs.

    ***Official*** South Africa in New Zealand 2017

    I understand playing Neesh for the batting, but would have been tempted to play Colin so he could open the bowling

    ***Official*** South Africa in New Zealand 2017

    How has university oval played this season (radio sport said they have a new groundsman), went and watched Jeets highlights from the plunkett shield, appeared to be a fair bit of turn. Has that been consistent?
