Second bite for the newbies
Left-hander Mark Chapman and wicketkeeper-batsman Tim Seifert made a solid fist of their debut against England in Wellington on Tuesday. Both had little time to find their feet but each hit a couple of sixes, and helped push the total up to the record-equalling ground total. Both looked confident and the challenge now is to avoid second-match blues. Seifert had a couple of handling bloopers behind the stumps but as the third T20 gloveman tried this summer let’s see if a bit of consistency can settle in.
