  • David White is really glad-handing his old mates at Northern Districts!



  • Excellent, annual leave to be booked for the first Bay Oval test πŸ™‚



  • Fifteen T20s, surely this is a bit of an overkill.

    How so?
    I also have some very reliable oil that touring teams request to play at he Mount and often make it a condition. NZC use it as bargaining chip. Indian in particular play quite hard ball over venues. And Bay Oval is the top of their list.



  • @Baron-Silas-Greenback I know right, no games in Whangarei!!



  • By the numbers by destination:

    Auckland - 4 T20's and 1 ODI (One T20 is still subject to late night consent)
    CHCH - 2 T20's and 1 Test
    Hamilton - 1 T20, 1 ODI and 1 Test
    Tauranga - 1 T20, 1 ODI and 1 Test
    Wellington - 2 T20's and 1 Test

    Napier, Nelson and Dunedin all get 1 T20.

    Hamilton and Tauranga the place to be!!!



  • @Baron-Silas-Greenback Obviously Bay Oval is not a green seamer then!



  • Yay Eden Park is actually getting a few games this summer, look forward to taking the boy along. He's finally taken a real interest in cricket and has been asking me to teach him how to play.

    I think the first test of the year.. in November is also best played in a location with good climate and drainage.
    Bay Oval has by a order of magnitude the best drainage of any venue in NZ



  • Test cricket in Mount Maunganui. A childhood dream since first going to an Eden Park test in 1986 πŸ™‚



  • @Baron-Silas-Greenback Sorry but did not make it clear enough. I was actually referring to the comment you made about the BCCI placing the Bay Oval at the top of their preferred venue list.

    Grin and bear it mate, it's the only format that makes any moneyπŸ™‚ for the greater good...

    To re-shuffle Hooroo's work by Association:

    ND - 2 tests, 2 ODIs, 2 T20s
    Auckland - 4 T20's and 1 ODI
    Canterbury - 2 T20's and 1 Test
    Wellington - 2 T20's and 1 Test
    CD - 2 T20s
    Otago - 1 T20

    No doubt about which association has won the jackpot, regardless of your oil.

    Similar story to last summer as I recall.

    All this and a boxing day test at the MCG?

    Easily the best summer of cricket for NZ ever innit?

    Bloody India, ruining world cricket 😏



  • @Chris-B or perhaps the allocation reflects that over 50% of NZ’s population lives within Auckland and ND.

    Proportionately light for Otago perhaps tho.



  • What do we have to do to get a test series longer than 2 games?! 5 T20s in a row vs England.....ugh

    How many people live in Tauranga and Hamilton? Compared to Auckland?

    NDs been given twice as many days (14) of international cricket as the next best Associations (Wellington and Canterbury with 7 each), which aren't Auckland. And they're all being played in Hamilton and Tauranga.

    No wonder you guys are able to buy up all the Black Caps! πŸ™‚



  • @Chris-B we’ll be fine until Auckland sorts out Eden Park or an alternative for cricket, then it’ll shift again.....

    50% of NZ residents within a three hour drive of the Mount in the meantime πŸ™‚
