    Yeah. Him and Wagner moved to the beach



  • Only seen a small amount so far, the 9.15pm starts of the BBL have worked better through the mad run into Christmas. Thought for a brief moment that the Volts might make a mess of the chase at the very end yesterday, but they got there smoothly enough.



  • I watched most of the ND-Wellington game. Brownlie batted so well and deserved his ton. He played a typical T20 shot though when on 99.

    Not for the first time I'm puzzled about Flynn's role in the team. He had a season a few years back when he opened and was aggressive. Now with Seifert and Devcich at the top he bats further down the order and continually gets pushed further down for pinch hitters.

    And speaking of Devcich, what the fuck is it with firstly Nathan McCullum and now Harris as commentators and pronouncing his name incorrectly? It must be a South Island thing as their co-commentators don't have the same problem.

  • Knights v Stags on now.

    Knights made 156
    Stags currently 36/3 from 6.

    Interestingly opening bowlers Devcich and Kuggeleijn have bowled right through the power play. It wouldn’t happen too often I don’t imagine.

    Also sounds to me like Ben Hurley commentating, is anyone able to confirm this?

    Edit: can confirm it is Ben Hurley.

    Who? (From Aus based Kiwi ... ). He world famous in Paeroa?



  • @booboo a comedian.

    So the Knights looked on track for a win up until about the 12-13 over mark. Sodhi & Santner did a great job restricting them while the required run rate was almost 12. Tom Bruce then went into beast mode when the quicks came back on and pretty much won the game on his own.
