    All 20/20 games are meaningless AFAIC, but trying to discredit his 100 because the pitch was a road and the bowling attack was apparently "****" is laughable.

    Clarke batted for a big chunk and NZ still needed a super over to win. So yes of course that discredits the score. A ton on an average pitch is worth more clearly.

    The fact, and honest NZ fans know this, is McCullum does not perform when it matters most. Being a good flat-track bully does not make you a good batsman. Being a good batsman means you score runs in competitions like this. His record in such situations is poor, in pretty much every format.

    TBH, when any of the top 8 teams play eachother in T20, the odds are never outside 60-40. So any team can win this...

    Top runscorer in Twenty20 international cricket (albeit with possibly most number of games), a more than acceptable average of 36.55 (7th highest for those who have played 10 or more T20Is and about 20th otherwise) and a strike rate of 133. Yep, McCullum's a poor Twenty20 player alright.

    McCullum is a good T20 batsman I reckon, but we are too early in the history of T20s to find "great" T20 batsmen. But his Achilles heel has been spin. His lowest SRs are against the sides with best exponents of spin. Same pattern is evident when his ODI stats are examined.

    If Sanga decides to open with Malinga and Randiv, things can get interesting.

    Oh, look, I'm not suggesting McCullum is going to guide us to victory - I've known him far too long to expect that. But some of Scaly's analysis defies belief.

    Yeah, this was my thinking. Seemed to be having a lot of players coming into form at the right time. We'll see how they do.
