They have an awesome top 4/5...
Hadlee to be his answer.
Bond, the only NZ cricketer in the last few years who is genuinely world class. Vettori only squeaks in if you restrict it to limited overs.
Haven't lost to the Netherlands though
So basically, for an NZer to be rated by you they have to be world class? coz buddy, Collingwood, Harmison and Onions ain't world class, yet you're in love with them.
Not that I really care what you think, I just like venting at you. Its healthy for me.
New Zealand are the third favourites behind South Africa and India.
I see the list as below -
Taylor doesn't have the potential to be world class yet. He's a guy who has to take big risks to score, just a random player who NZ fans will blame everything under the sun when he fails and proclaim him as god when he comes off (largely against mediocre bowling on a road). Haven't seen much of Ryder yet but he's a lot of things to do to make it. The fact that he's in that condition and has the problems that he has and still looks a class above the rest of the NZ side tells you that he has talent and that NZ as a whole don't. That again brings me back to why NZ are very unlikely to win anything, they can't raise their game to the levels that most other teams can.
Taylor almost always fails when the bowlings easy its one of his worst faults. He just loses concentration and does something stupid.
In fact I don't think he played better than when he was in Australia in hard conditions with the team falling to pieces around him. He really had to stick his head down, though often got after breaks in play due to his aforementioned problems with concentration.
