The strange
NZ vs Ban

overs - 4
NZ Batting - 9 runs
Ban Bowling - 4 wickets

it's the first time Ban has had 4 wickets in the first 4 overs of a T20i

NZ 60 equal lowest score for a NZ team verses all nations

The strange thing for me is that they have allowed Phillips & Seifert to play CPL whereas the rest of the WC Squad is being "rested" , apparently Neesham was keen to play but NZC said no.

Pretty poor effort not being able to make 62 😀

Unfortunately not Herbie, been finding it hard getting back in the groove. Got the NFL starting this week, might trigger something lol. :unsure:
Fair enough , the amount of info you provide over the AFL season is hugeeeeeeeeeeeee.

Good luck with the NFL , tried that a few times a few years ago.

EPL RDT resumes this weekend , hopefully the IPL RDT does soon (although based on.thd reply the organisers gave me might be a last minute decision if at all) , then it will be NBA RDT time then Big Bash

One to follow for US cricket

Smit Patel scored 54 on his CPL debut for Barbados Tridents

Was India's WK when they won the U19 WC in 2012 (scored 62* in the Final v Australia)

Gave up his career in India to try and qualify for the USA

Domestic season to start on 22 September

So far only 2 Shield games & 2 Marsh Cup games have been announced

SA v WA both formats

QLD v TAS both formats
Well the original schedule didn't last long. Hopefully they can still get plenty of matches in before December. The first half of the domestic season is so important for getting the test players in form, but also for determining the A squad and finding replacements for any injured or out of form test players.

Talk of NSW & Victoria players going to the NT so they can play games their.

T20 WC players outside of those states might get one game in before they leave.

Read somewhere that Ellis flew out yesterday for the IPL , not sure whether others flew with him or not.

Doubts on the Afghanistan Test taking place , not sure if the ICC can make a decision that quickly though to suspend them or not.

Could mean Cummins , Hazlewood , Smith , Starc & Warner have no red ball cricket at all before the Gabba Test.

Sounds like the test vs Afghanistan is off.
