    Chris Rogers scored 241no a coupla days ago to steer Middlesex to 472 for the loss of only three wickets! It's Middlesex's highest successful run chase at Lord's and the third highest successful run chase in county cricket history.

    When he (finally) grows up Rogers is going to be a damned fine cricketer. ;)

    NZ Cricketers envy of cricket world

    --NZ Herald--

    NZ cricketers are the envy of the cricket
    world for the stunning salaries they command. Despite being ranked 20th in a worldwide field of seven nations, ranked down between Luxembourg and the Botswana Midwives 3rd XI, most NZ cricketers live in houses like this:

    "Send the chopper over Mum, I'm lost in the bloody maze again."

    "My top score ever is 20" said one NZ cricketer. "Most of the lads are the same. Really, there's not much use staying at the crease after that. The job is done."

    This was just after they'd taken the last wicket to beat West Indies. It's hard not to like New Zealand cricket.

    Strange choice. There again, he might be a good coach.

    Yeah, a pitch doing something other than bounce - that's just not cricket! At least, not the cricket this Aussie squad plays. I'm fairly sure it's against the Laws of the game. :)

    The irony of this appointment overwhelmed to the the extent that I've been speechless for 16 hours.

    Hard to know whether to laugh or cry.

    What is it about Graeme Hick? He was playing before I remember watching cricket

    ^^^^^^^^^^^ First Class average ~52 with 100+ centuries, 40K runs. Test average ~32 with (from memory) three centuries, dropped & recalled more often than Rob Simmons :). In an XI of flat track bullies, he'd open.

    Sad to see big Maxy Walker pass away yesterday. A great player and one of the good guys. He'll most likely be the last player to ever play 85 top grade Aussie rules (or any other football code for that matter at the elite level) and test cricket.

    Kiwis have had one or two since - Brian McKechnie represented NZ at cricket and rugby around about the same time.

    McKechnie was collateral in several key sporting moments. He was the non-striker for the Under Arm bowl, and kicked the resulting penalty from "That Lineout" when Haden famously took a dive to milk a penalty against the Welsh.

    NZL's last dual coder was probably Jeff Wilson or Goldy. Infamous for being a participant in "That Tackle" in 1994.

    Yes, I've previously pointed to the irony of McKechnie facing the underarm delivery and also kicking the winning penalty goal from the AB lineout divathon (much to the annoyance of a couple of AB supporters who decline to face the reality of the TV footage and cling to the fact that apparently a Welsh hand touched an AB player in the lineout which was an infringement);)
