    Yeah. True, no wonder we won a test series in England last time we came, or won CB series in Australia, or won a test series and ODI series in NZ....

    What happened last time India ventured to New Zealand where flat pitches hadn't been made for them?

    Players like Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina and Yusuf Pathan will never be good enough players to play any other form of cricket. Could you see Raina playing test cricket?

    You won a test series in England because India had good batsmen on that tour, but the NZ pitches were no different then India's crappy slow dustbowls.If NZ didn't need you're money then the green seamer's wickets would of been used again.

    Personally think it's their bowling that's a bit weak. Don't rate Irfan or RP Singh and Ishant isn't well suited to the format. Ojha's a promising little tweaker but he's not an especially good bowler. Zaheer and Harbhajan are quality, but it's just them.

    1 and 2 will make us fail epically more, the only way 2 will work is if that paceman is Bond or Wagner.

    McGlashan in now, can't see him scoring today.
    Oram is done in T20.

    Have a cold and had work today so I was never going to bother watching. Besides, I knew we'd lose - we struggle time and time again against quality spin.

    When was the last time New Zealand won a must-win match in a tournament? 2000 Champions trophy?

    Why does Oram suck so much at T20 batting? You'd think he'd be tailor-made for it. What pisses me off about him and Mills to a certain extent is they always look so ****ing depressed. Their body language on the field is horrible.

    Can i ask why the hate for Styris?

    I have been following them closely over here and up till yest he was playing well. 50 off 30 against NZ in the warm ups, 42 off 28 against Aust, 29 off 18 against India then bats in a no win situation stuffed up by B Mac/Taylor against SA. Top scores against Pakistan before failing against SL...

    Sometimes i dont get it? Is it that once your over 30 youre gone?

    Oram on the otherhand i can understand. He also looked great early on but has gone down hill slowly since. I cant seem to work out why either???
