Any chance of a result here is gone barring hattricks and miracles.

Indian seamers too weak against pathetic NZA batting.

NZA 9 down and within 70 of India's total.Draw city with one day to go.

Gowtham and Sinaj displayed skills from an Ind A bowling perspective.

For NZA - only Tickner (as a bowler) has had a good game so far.

That's why Gurbani should have got a game here. Let's see if he can atleast make it at A level. Hopefully he would play the next 4 day match.

I don't rate Chahar. And he is past his prime.

Srikar Bharat is best keeper( Gloves) in India & handy with bats but Ishan Kishan
Better batsman, so he will play alone with Shubham Gill, captain Nair, Gurbani,I wish Vijay Shankar and Agarwal rested so team MGMT includes
Bawne,Samarth & Eshwaran- - for next two matche
Rohit too not play any domestic multi day in India since March 2017, so he MUST ( lucky enough to gets test team) play both games.

Haha - Shaw is so good and confident he is in the Ind test team - he just had an in game net 50(53). Vijay who knows he is under pressure to keep his spot 60(113).

This Shaw kid looks a lot like Tendulkar in his stroke-play based on what I just saw in this innings. Should he be opening - or batting 5?

Even if Rohit hits 200 ball 50 in second A games, Rahane will bats for India in all 8 innings at #5
I WOULD LIKE PANT AT 6 THAN ROHIT

Shaw and Vijay our opener, if Virat or Ravi includes Rahu--as opener, with Shaw, HATERS OF CAPTAIN AND COACH INCREASE IN INDIA

Yes Shaw will open

Rahul is t20i player his time will coming in IPL 12.

Game finished as a comfortable draw.

Shaw, Agarwal, Vijay and Rahane found some form.

NZC found Will Young has it as an opener - and Tickner looked good.

Ind A bowling besides Siraj and Gowtham was horrid. (Gowtham though does not know how to get tail enders out - he needs to work on this). And Siraj became horrid as he got tired.

NZA batting in the middle order bar Cleaver was horrid.

No bowler - including Tickner - who played in this game deserves to be near test selection just yet. But the batsmen - yes.

Tickner looked good.

Except Siraj among the bowlers, nobody in the A team can make transition right now. Chahar is a waste he should not have been picked, surprised Saini is going down slowly since last 1 year.

I would have much liked Gurbani to play, he was great last year on Indian pitches. Reminds me a little of Bhuvaneswar Kumar when he debuted. And seam position is a bit like Glenn McGrath.

But Gurbani has also had some injuries and needs to pick up his pace to succeed at international level.

Says it all when that dream XI had NZ's Kuggeliejn and Van Beek who were left out for spuds like Bracewell and Jamieson. DOn't quite know how Rance made their XI, though.

Siraj was excellent when fresh. But he needs to work on stamina. Imo, he undid a lot of his early good work when failing to mop up the tail when tired.

Tickner surprised me. Bennett, Kuggeleijn, Van Beek, Newton all have better claims than many of the bowlers who played. Tickner I don't think should have been picked - but he did much better than I feared he may or expected tbh.

I would send Chahar home. He is not an Ind A seamer, let alone an international seamer. Bowling short and wide pies to buy Rutherford's wicket is a dumb bowling move. Just aim it on the stumps to that spud!

Bolero, in the next two A games NZ will play Lockie Ferguson. He bowls with good pace - easily over 150 when he wants too. So watch who smashes him and who get out to him. Because this will tell you who struggles with pace, and who has no problem with it.

Kuggs, Ferg, Bennett - are all pacey - much quicker than Southee or Wagner. These are the guys NZA should have been looking at imo. Because them with Milne - are a rarity in NZC. NZC bowlers are typically 130's.

And yes - NZC fans want to know how Ferg goes because he just succeeded vs Pakistan in the ODI series. He is in the mix if he does well in this series to be a test cricketer.

Nice to note, Paddles.

In India, the only up and coming bowlers who are bowling real pace are Kamlesh Nagarkoti and Shivam Mavi.

Nagarkoti had a serious injury earlier this year and is out for 1 year. He had a surgery to boot.

Mavi is playing Ranji.

Kamlesh Nagarkoti hasn’t bowled in nine months. A fractured foot snatched his debut IPL season, and during rehabilitation, a back injury took him to London to meet expert physiotherapists. On Thursday, his franchise Kolkata Knight Riders eased a bit of his career concerns by retaining him for the upcoming season.

The 18-year-old pacer — who clocked around 140 kmph in the ICC U-19 World Cup that India won in February — is yet to bowl a delivery in the IPL. “I can’t believe that I didn’t play a game and they still retained me. It shows the trust KKR has in my abilities. I also hope to do well for them when I play,” Nagarkoti told Sportstar.

He is still under treatment borne by the BCCI. “I still have pain on my back. There is no confirmation by when can I recover but I feel it will take two more months,” he said.

In London, he visited two physiotherapists. “One asked to go for surgery, the second physician said it’s not required and the injury will heal on its own,” he added.

Nagarkoti — who has only played List A — got a call from state association, Rajasthan, ahead of the Ranji Trophy 2018-19. He had to let that go too. “I got a call but I don’t think I can be fit within the Ranji tenure because I will need to be match-fit. I need to train. I can’t get in directly. I will first focus on my recovery process,” he said.

As of now, the youngster is under the supervision of the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru. “I keep thinking when can I resume. I keep talking to the physios at the NCA. They tell me the suitable programmes to follow to get closer to being fit. I try to follow their instructions.”

When the speedster enters the KKR dressing room in IPL 2019, he will have U-19 colleagues Shubman Gill and Shivam Mavi, among others, for company.

Bennett is 32 - I wish he was up and comming - but the reality is - he is on his way out as a paceman. He's the best of the non- internationals.

Kuggs I hold high hopes for - and year after year in my Long White Cloud thread I talk about him. For 2 years he faced criminal charges that meant promotion was impossible for him for international because he did not want nor seek the promotion. (Scott Kuggeleijn - google and you will see why - he was found not guilty - he also bats really well for a fast bowler). Fergusson is on the selectors radar after retiring Imam Ul-Haq in an one day international with a bouncer. He is slippery. Does he have the control or stamina? Who knows. But he is the next in line after Southee and Henry to Boult and Wagner. Does he deserve to be? Who knows. But it is clear to NZC fans that he most definitely is in the mind of selectors. I like Bennett myself (but he is not trusted because he got injured on test debut in India and still to this very day blamed for Bhaji scoring a century to win the test for India after NZC were well on top).

Milne - the fastest of the lot for fastest ball (if he really tried he could break 160 like Lee and Akhtar) - is too brittle for red ball cricket. I think he should stick to white ball. He just gets injured all the *********** time in red ball.

I don't mind if he does. I get that the Indian batting is absurdly high in quality and far more difficult than what NZC bowlers face at domestic. This is a good thing - it lets NZC selectors see where the domestic star bowlers really are at before being selected in intl.

I know the batting in NZC is often very weak. Very very weak. I know the seamers often dominate. Indian cricket is the opposite - your batting rules. Obviously India has the better spinners. (NZ the better fielders, though).

NZC will give Ind A flat pitches - because it does not care about winning on a greenie - it wants to examine NZ bowlers on flat decks against good batsmen. Heck - - excellent batsmen.

A games are not a contest where winning matters. It about talent identification. Can the bowlers who dominate the FC scene in NZ do something against Indian batsmen on a road? This is selector's acid test. NZC will give you roads.

NZC will even give your intl team roads ahead of the WC in England. Because we need India happy to tour here and fund our cricket with broadcast dollars (this means keeping Kohli happy) - and it is very good practice for NZC ahead of the world cup (which will be on roads).

I want NZC to stoop to English test levels with the pitches - but NZC needs 5 day test matches to keep bread on table. I wish it didn't. NZC could be a consistent seamer shoot out (look at what Safrica do) and win even more games at home.

Yes above two games really helps Gavin Larson, In case NZ wants second string teams vs SL on Dec 26th -Dec 30, first test

Or you can pick someone special like
Ferguson or Young in test team

Exactly. The A games this season have demonstrated that Will Young is the best batsman not in the test team.

If Fergusson wants to have a test career - he needs to succeed in the A games because right now he is behind Henry, Southee, Boult and Wagner.

Young is captain vs Nair captain of Opposite team


Who is Dale Phillips? Must be printing mistake or is it Glen = Dale?

Teams:

New Zealand A (Playing XI): Hamish Rutherford, Will Young(c), Tim Seifert, Dale Phillips, Rachin Ravindra, Cam Fletcher(w), Doug Bracewell, Theo van Woerkom, Seth Rance, Lockie Ferguson, Blair Tickner

Dale Phillips is Glen's lil brother. I have no idea why he is playing this game. It is reported on both cricinfo and NZ cricket to be Dale.

It could very much be an error. I am trying to find out now. Good to see Will Young putting in a fight again.

Maybe Glen got injured and Dale was down there to watch him play, and then plays. I really have no idea what's going on...

NZA in a world of hurt here. IND A well on top.

But all that really matters for NZC fans is that Will Young keeps making runs ;-D

All that really matters for Ind A fans is whether Ferguson takes wickets or not.

Yes but why Bracewell bats so early? I wonder why home team bats so Nagetiv frame of mind on good wicke?


I remember Bracewell who took 6 for 40 vs their neighbour aus to give victory to NZ in test cricket after 26 years, he also took 5 fer in his debut test

Paddles
I wonder why he was not encourage by NZ cricket board
? On further advancement of his career?

Our second string ( samarth,Eshwaran and Bawne ) I am afraid not have good day tomorrow at SIDDON

141 for 5
Young need 24 for 100.i think he has chance if ROSSCO skips SL series starting on Dec 26-30, 2018

Nicholas always good in NZ or Guppy might still not recover but it's Foolish to sends Latham open in NZ

Gurbani and Siraj bowls very good now ,when I was for jogging this early morning here in india (388325)
N.Saini bowls superb spell 6 over 9 runs.

It could very much be an error. I am trying to find out now. Good to see Will Young putting in a fight again.

Maybe Glen got injured and Dale was down there to watch him play, and then plays. I really have no idea what's going on...


Above just printing mistake but BCCI did something big mess last year for two brothers with same last name

Bcci named Deepak instead rahul

Ferguson or Young in test team


Exactly. The A games this season have demonstrated that Will Young is the best batsman not in the test team.

If Fergusson wants to have a test career - he needs to succeed in the A games because right now he is behind Henry, Southee, Boult and Wagner.


Young justifying the faith.

On the Indian side, Gurbani impressed.

Your assessment of Siraj is correct. He is fast and nippy in his first spell and then tires out.

Gurbani is used to bowling all day on dead Indian tracks in Ranji.

Yeah, sadly a common fault for fast bowlers. Can be remedied - but it will take a track and field coach to monitor Siraj's diet and control his fitness regime. Teach him how to get endurance and power both. NZC uses a former Olympic Sprinter Chris Donaldson who is part of the training squad and the bowlers report to him all year round. Wagner swears by him and always praises him. That said, Tim Southee has never got his pace back up to the mid 140's that he had when he was at his peak. He's 128-132s now. At least he delivers it all day - I guess. Think he needs Bond telling him to bowl faster and faster again.

16 overs from Siraj on day one is simply not good enough. 20 overs minimum should be his goal for day 1. He's simply got to give his team more than 16 overs.

Will Young continues his push for higher honours is pleasing. But this Seifert and Philips run of failing is getting a bit dire. Philips does not look a test batsman to me - despite wider NZC fans saying that he will be. I see more of a hard handed slogger all the time. Don't know what's wrong with Seifert - ever since he blossomed into the reckoning last year - he's just failed and failed and failed. It is so bad - 29 is the highest score in last 10 games...including 3 ducks. And it goes back further than 10 matches too. He has just fallen apart since playing T20i for NZ.

Fletcher does not deserve to be there (Blundell in UAE, Cleaver played game 1). Nor does Bracewell (should be Kuggelijn or Neesham). But the selectors will watch Ferguson closely I imagine.

I think there is still enough time in the game for India to win it given if Rutherford is unable to bat in the second innings. Outside Will Young and Ravindra, I just don't see many runs in the batting for NZ - who will need a very wagging tail (again). And as I type this... rain.
