    Braithwaite has barely scored a run in any form since his hundred against us...

    We did CdG watch last year in the UAE, and right now he is in career best form. Are you trying to jinx Carlos into form?

    96 off 50 for Munro in his first CPL game, he loves that league. 267 off 20 overs, scores are getting insane.

    Ahem - thanks for drawing my attention to it, but you coulda given Phillips a shout out too.

    4 kiwis in this match, Worker, Neesh and Phillips. Philips continuels his CPL love affair with 62 off 32. To go with 58 off 34 in the previous game (which was a low scoring match!).

    There's kiwis all over the CPL - they love us much more over there than the IPL.

    I posted that before the 2nd innings, Phillips definitely looks good just blasting from ball one.

    I don't know if this is candid by Munro or a total bluff. He has come out and said he cannot pick chinamen. Now if you can't pick a left arm wristie like Kuldeep or Chahal, how do you then pick a right arm wristie?

    I have seen Munro smash runs in India vs Kuldeep (and Chahal) and look on top of his game. Munro doesn't seem like much of a bluffer to me. His fault I see with his game is against express pace. Not spin. Mind you, this does explain why he plays those switch hit swats so often.

    Sure enough N did jinx Carlos back into form, who not only smashed a rapid fire 64 off 30 balls, but blitzed 2 6's and a 4 in the super over. I think super over favours the side batting second far too much as teams can use set batsmen for the blitz.

    What is more concerning was Neesham bowling the last over with 18 to defend. He managed a beamer of a no ball and a fumble return to allow the loss. 4 overs for 68 runs, that said, he batted well.

    Glad to see the performance of cricketers in today's domestic match. Quite interesting to see the powerful shots with their cricket bats.

    This is what I have been calling for the past 5 years
    T20 will turn a corner and scores will get much bigger
    In the future there will be no consolidation after a few wickets fall
    Just fast and hard batting throughout
    No place for slow coach steady Eddie batsman once t20 stats getting played properly

    For roads that maybe the best way to go, but it depends on the pitch and conditions, too though. There's a lot of tame pitches and bowling in the CPL as against IPL dustbowls and plethora of spin talent that Kolkata and Hyderbad put up regularly for years before 2019.

    You're basically saying you want people to have more of a crack at the spinners in overs 7 to 16. Problem is their googly and variations. Else more people would.

    Well he bowls in the slot so often - so he has more opportunities to get those catches :P

    How are the Kiwi lads going in the CPL? Any standouts?

    How are the Kiwi lads going in the CPL? Any standouts? Glen Phillips is putting up some impressive numbers - is his keeping okay? Or at least improved? Or at least better than Seifert?

    Both Seifert and Phillips are more than good enough for limited overs keeping in either format. Tests not so sure. Your boy Bocock would be the worst of the three on glovework alone.

    I find this difficult to believe. Especially as NZ chose Bocock to keep wicket over Latham with Latham's gloves and Watling's pads in that final day of a test match when Watling was injured. I'm sure the players would have a fair idea of he is better at what. They wanted Latham to remain in slips. I think Latham is a mile better than Seifert and Phillips with the gloves. So I am very surprised to read you write he isn't good with the gloves.

    Not that it is directly on point, as it covers more than just keeping, Bocock has regularly been one of the the NZ specialist sub fielders for home games for a while now now along with Younghusband. They actually flew Bocock in. He's known as a fielding star.

    Phillips and Seifert have been woeful at intl with the gloves, and with NZ playing two spinners so often in t20, we need those stumpings nailed. Heck we need the edges caught as well. They both need to improve on this.

    I am simply asking if Phillips has improved? I never marked him down as a "Never wanna see this guy play for NZ again". I am getting more than a lil frustrated with Seifert, and actually wonder whether doubling down on Latham may actually be the better idea if Seifert and Philips don't shine at intl anytime soon.

    The t20 WC is really only a lil over a year away. Be interesting to see how the wicket keeper race pans out.

    I may be a bit quiet on the boards for the next week as I have some business issues to manage and will be out of town on business at some points.

    I will be at my full contributing self shortly thereafter

    Thanks for your response about bocock I stand corrected

    There is such a dearth of domestic cricket on tv, you may yet be right with your earlier post. Those terrible straight camera videos I only watch for wickets and boundaries. Not keen on watching a game of those. I've just never noticed Bocock look bad with the gloves from what I have seen, and I know NZC special sub field with him. But imo, if he is better with the gloves than Latham according to the NZ team, then because Latham is better in my mind unarguably than Seifert or Philips, Bocock must also certainly ranked ahead of them imo. But we all know selectors and teams can make some odd choices at times.

    Enjoy your busy week. There is no NZ domestic cricket till 21 October despite the Aus season already under away in full swing. I think NZ could looks at starting things off a tad earlier, even if it is cooler for the players.

    Apart from cold it is whether the pitch will hold up and not cut up

    Whangarei and Mount should be hard under foot before October 21, though. Doesn't have to be Dunedin or Chch.

    Don't get me wrong, its horrible and wet in Auckland right now. But I bet by mid October - it will be dry enough in Auckland.

    A golden duck, and bowled 1 over, none for 25. Wonder what Jimmy will tweet after this match?

    This is the best move that NZC has made in terms of increasing the promotion of domestic cricket with more than a third of the Super Smash to be broadcast via TVNZ.

    Unfortunately it wont be until the 20/21 season but I will definitely be signing up for Spark Sport next summer.

    Frankly id rather have visually flawless coverage of a few games as opposed to buffering, pixelated coverage from someone with 0 track record of sport production of major events...
