and jeez does Corey Anderson look like a very young Chris Cairns. Only 17 but he hit some towering sixes in his 70.
The bounce looks very low and inconsistent at times. Southee and Boult are important but I feel the spinner Nick Beard and the two medium pacers Morgan and Verma could play a hand in this as well.
