Positive signs for national selectors at Plunket Shield


Positive signs for the Black Caps test selectors with their pace bowlers dominating day one of the Plunket Shield.

CD's Doug Bracewell's taken seven wickets to knock over Canterbury for 252 in Rangiora, ND's Tim Southee's taken four wickets as Wellington reached 412 for nine in Whangarei, and Otago's Neil Wagner's helped knock over Auckland for 221 in Dunedin with a five wicket bag.

Wagner says after a lot of time carrying drinks its nice to be back taking wickets.

He says it feels good to be playing again and hopefully he can get another shot in the Black Caps.

Wagner says it's healthy for New Zealand cricket that all the Black Caps hopefuls are performing well.

Central start day two 32 without loss and Otago's 118 for two.
