NZ Domestix

A pioneering round in the Plunket Shield this week as all 3 fixtures trial a day-night pink ball game.

Day two - rained off all round the country.

Ah, summer!

Seen some interesting tactics, with declarations at comparatively low scores in order to force the opposition to bat in unfavourable conditions.

For example, Wellington declaring just before tea on the 3rd day and seeing Otago collapse for 98.

Colin Munro stood down for the next Auckland game. Strangely due to bad language.

Most peculiar.

First round of the 2017/18 season underway and an incredible match going on for Wellington at the Basin.

Auckland were 12-7 for then 62 all out. To which Wellington are currently 407 - 0 in reply. Senior statesmen Michael Papps and Luke Woodcock breaking all sorts of records for Wellington's opening partnership.

Interesting first round of fixtures. Papps with a triple-ton as Wellington take home an easy victory. First triple ton for Wellington, and an all-time NZ Domestix record for the 1st wicket.

Then today, Brad Schmulian (sic?) scored a double-ton on debut for Central Districts.

That's a ridiculous scorecard. More reminiscent of a schools cricket mismatch.

Would Wellington have been heavy favourites going into this match?

Not particularly. Wellington definitely have the more experienced batting line-up. Papps and Woodcock have been around for years and Murdoch's played a lot of first class. Blundell's an up-and-coming keeper. The bowling line-up is average though with debutant Newton, inexperienced McPeake, injury-prone Bennett, the uber-spinner Patel (not usually much chop in NZ) and the bloody useless van Beek.

The Auckland line-up has vastly less experience in the batting. Jeet Raval is currently the incumbent opener in NZ's Test team, but then you've got a host of young'uns in Guptill-Bunce, O'Donnell, Barry, Chapman and Horne. Chapman looks to have the goods though and certainly some knowledgeable commentators have said O'Donnell, Barry and Horne are ones to watch.

Basically, I'd say both teams have got pretty big holes to worry about in terms of experience.

Is experience an issue in NZ domestic cricket in general?

I suppose if I had to guess where that sort of scorecard would be I'd say NZ. I'd be guessing extravagant swing under cloud cover and then the pitch flattened out (like for Astle and Thorpe's double hundreds). Still a crazy scorecard.

ps Is that Chapman the HK player?

I see Cachopa returned in the match, his first game since leaving Sussex. Same form though.

Chapman is the HK player - but he has a good chance of playing for NZ; he's already eligible.

With the Basin Reserve pitch, it's quite often really good for batting. It can be tricky for visiting teams as you get - particularly at this time of year - really strong winds which will either blow from South or North - i.e. directly assisting one bowler's run-up and directly impeding the other. This can make it difficult for visiting bowlers to hit the right lengths. Rarely do we get extravagant swing. That said, you can see the wickets for yourself on the Blackcaps website (click the dismissal on the scorecard). A couple of decent balls in there, a couple of batsmen who threw it away.

I'd say that Auckland massively underperformed in their first innings, their opening bowlers didn't hit the right lengths and let the Wellington openers get away and then performed more on par in their 2nd innings.

Thank you and yes, I can see what you mean about the wind. The umpire's hat gets blown off.

I like the feature about being able to click on any dismissal to see it.

Have heard good things about Chapman.

Now, where had we got up to with my bedtime stories on NZ Domestic cricket?

Are you sitting comfortably?

Call-ups to NZA have disrupted the usual squads for this round of the Plunket Shield. Top of the table clash between Wellington and Central. Could already make a pretty strong statement about which way the silverware will be heading at the end of the season.

Two debutants for Wellington. One, Travis Muller, has recently moved here from RSA hoping to eventually qualify for NZ (apparently). The other, Lachie Johns - I know absolutely nothing about!

Two hat-tricks in domestic cricket today. Logan van Beek for Wellington vs. Canterbury (Canterbury all out for 53) and Matt McEwan for Auckland vs. Northerns.

I see Stuart Meaker played for Auckland today. Looking a bit rusty based on the stats.

van Beek and McPeake clearly Canterbury’s equivalent of Stokes and Woakes

Went along to the Plunket Shield top-of-the-table clash at the Basin yesterday. Decent recovery from Wellington to reach over 500 after being 99 - 5.

So many South Africans playing in NZ these days. Malcolm Nofal debuting for Wellington, Willem Ludick for Central. That's on top of Devon Conway playing for Wellington. Nofal and Woodcock played really well to put on a record 6th wicket partnership for Wellington.

Was also amusing to have Ludick bowling to Woodcock.

Wellington trying their best to throw the Plunket Shield by collapsing to Ish Sodhi's legspin on a day 1 greentop at the Basin. Pillocks.
