Sec­ond bite for the new­bies

The New Zealand Herald - - SUPER SPORT -

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.
