    ND 91/3, so almost ahead. That's a hell of a Greentop though, 7 wickets are caught behind and I'd wager that Williamson and Taylor are in the slip cordon too, so it's 9 out of 13 wickets caught behind the stump.
    Yeah i wanted to confirm this... we should play Pakis on that ground Bondy & Tom would have a field day.

    yeah, why did they stop televising domestic cricket?
    big shame huh, but since they cant even find a sponsor, id say its hard to televise it. but i believe the one day format will be shown on sky (i could be wrong) in Jan, especially since all the BC are available

    Todd Astle batting 4 today, I reckon the kids got talent, so I hope he starts showing some soon.
    Played him a lot at school level (He played for Boys High) and he NEVER got any runs, but was always in the wickets with his gentle leg break :@

    Yeah, he was my coach while I was at boys.. what do you mean he never got runs? Haha honestly can't remember his batting at school though, but you're right about the leg break! Wasn't he keeper originally?

    Oh, look we're half way through already.

    After a 125 run opening stand, Guptill took a leaf out of Flynn's book and fell for 49. Then the Auckland top order fell like a house of cards, barring ex-BC Richard Jones who made the ton. But they're still 180 odd runs shy of making first innings points.

    Canterbury on the other hand are dominating. A 250 run lead and only 3 more wickets required for first innings points, and the follow on looming. Otago's Black Caps failed to deliver too (Broom and McCullum).

    Meanwhile in CD v ND, McGlashan keeps on taking catches, he's up to about 11 for the match now. Nutty match, Taylor was in the runs though, so that's good. CD at 178/5, after a first innings deficit of about 200

    Oh, and Bond bowled well, took 4 wickets. Otago all out for 235, Canterbury decide to not bother with the whole follow on lark and are currently 16/1. Rob Nicol, new to Canterbury this year, out for a second ball duck, and I'm a bit cross. 3 wickets early in the day and we decide to have a bat.

    Also, apparently the record for first class dismissals by a keeper is 13 in one match. McGlashan is on 12, and CD are 8 down.

    Time to get everyone else to start dropping their catches?

    Cornelius Kruger van Wyk. Migrated here from South Africa a couple of years ago when Canterbury had David Nosworthy running the show, and brought a couple of his former South African charges with him. When Nosworthy went home, the players stayed.

    He's a pretty seasons experienced player. Otago are 65/0 chasing 471 to win, so they need to score 400 runs in a day to win so Canterbury are in a pretty strong position, but I would have preferred to see him back the strength of his bowlers (he does have probably our two best test bowlers at his disposal) and send Otago straight back in.

    ND won comfortably in the end, chasing 129 only losing one wicket in the process.

    Wellington are 255/5 with a lead of about 100 more, so I'd expect an early declaration from them, but Auckland should be good enough to get the draw.

    Did Bond actually bowl well or just happened to get 4 wickets? sure anyone will be happy with 4 wickets but was it a good lot of bowling for that 4 wickets if you get my drift?

    They better win it. Seemed best bet to enforce the follow on to me.

    Corey Anderson you legend - 4 overs, 3 maidens, 2 runs, and 2 wickets. Eco - 0.50, **** yeah!

    Otago 142/2, Toddy Astle is making up for his poor batting with sweet fielding.

    Really? I think he made the best decision considering how well the Canterbury bowlers have been playing, likewise with Otago's poor batting form.

    Interesting that they're not using Todd Astle. He's been useful on the last day in the past.
