No, I don't think. But it's part of the package that has got him in the picture.If that was the case then he should have got a contract last year don't you think and not this year?
An NZC central contract?Take for instance Finn Allen, one outstanding season at super smash and he's now played for NZ. Will be a shoo in for Black caps at t20 and gigs around the world.
The pathway has definitely been changing.
Toiling at PS what does that get you?
I'm not talking about the contract but in general the change in pathway and the prominence of t20 over other formats.
OK, I know you just said "I'm not talking about the contract but in general the change in pathway"
Note that Finn Allen isn't considered rounded/valuable enough yet. But Macewell has.
If Allen had a decent tournament in the last 2 years in one of either Plunket or Ford Trophy, like Macewell. He would have a central contract now I reckon.
