    Talking with someone from NZ Cricket last night and they aren't hopeful at all of the Christchurch games going ahead, environment court to rule on it soon

    Nelson??

    do they have a big enough Ground Kiwi?

    Beautiful town, but I'd have thought a bit small.

    Is a place called Saxton Oval, it would hold more than 5000 I'd say although they could bring in temporary seating or something I guess.

    Hasnt hosted internationals yet but does a lot of first class

    How are the pools decided Kiwi? I assume it is based on seedings.
    Pool A certainly appears a bit tougher than pool B imo.

    The pools we based on the ICC Rankings at the end of last year from memory, that is what the numbers beside the teams indicate

    Just reading about Dhawan's knock for India A last night, 248 from 150, was out in the 45th over so a 300 could have been on the cards, amazing how the game has changed !! 250 team score used to be a winning total lol. India made 433 and SA A made 394 in reply
