2020/21 New Zealand Domestic Season

Is the Auckland game on? Scorecard doesn't seem to be on nzc but weather looks good according to a quick google.

Hamilton forecast does not look promising :(

Oh, that's not the greatest reading comprehension then. Pity as the conditions look good. Wellington openers haven't fired, but still expecting a big season from them.

2020 yet to show signs of picking up when second wicket of the season Will Williams wanders in and gets PONI Ravindra strangled down the leg side. Yuck.

McCullum has really plunged Tim Seifert from the virtual anonymity of NZ domestic play into a cauldron of indelicate critics. I sort of hope he surprises and does quite well over there now, even though he's always been very much a #teamhowsie man.

Jeet Raval looking good... Looks like he's moving very well.

Two soft dismissals from our lads today. Blundell and Ravindra. Was hoping to watch the top three today at some point in time but will wait and watch before I decide to go. Looks like it is going to rain throughout the day.

Too much to ask that Josh Clarkson survives a season as an allrounder? Encouraging that he's opening the bowling for CD A and has two wickets already.

I wouldn't be surprised if those stress fractures (and the bulkier build too) prevent Clarkson from ever being the useful outswing bowler of his rookie season, but we'll see.

The weather's really packing it in in the capital, might be lucky to get much more play today.

Yeah I think if he wants to be useful as a bowler at all he needs to stop trying to be a real one.

If there's any time for an IPL dabble on an agribusiness product, it's this year. Those monotonous, bland UAE surfaces are far less likely to test the limits of Seifert's technique than a regular IPL season would.

Yes Cooper scored more Shield tons than anyone else last season.

Getting to age 27 and having a lack of pure hand-eye keeping you stuck on zero domestic T20 games, that isn't always a promising sign in NZ players that we want to see rise up into being good in Tests. It would be nice if Cooper is NZ's first in a while who gets himself up in the red ball opening ranks in an old-fashioned way.

cooper's success surprised a few mates who grew up here, but im pretty sure cooper flats with ferguson and nzc had a little vid of them practising together during lockdown which must help (may be confusing cooper with nicholls).
