    Preparing for ignominious defeat to Bangladesh, before Pakistan miraculously forget how to play cricket-ball and we beat them. They go on to beat Bangladesh convincingly and NZ & Pakistan advance.

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Final Group Standings :

    1.Pakistan
    2.Bangladesh
    3.New Zealand

    Expect Pakistan to run through the group fairly comfortably,while Bangladesh will own New Zealand to come 2nd.

    If New Zealand get out of their group (50/50) they'll make the semis again bcos of easy super 8s - always too good for Windies and Poms (both are NZ's bunnies) in big tournaments regardless of lead-in form

    Soooo, it sounds like New Zealand's lineup for the first match will be:

    Franklin
    Guptill
    McCullum
    Taylor
    Nicol
    Watling
    Oram
    Vettori
    NcCullum
    Mills
    Southee/Milne (if Southee isn't fit)

    Well, if the ball swings we should have a chance against Bangladesh.

    Interesting move if they do open with Franklin - didn't he do that in the IPL? Had good strikers at the other end though.

    Apparently Nicol and Southee scoring the wrong sort of runs so quite possible they'll both miss the opener v Bangas. Would mean Milne and Williamson likely play, which is not any better or worse.

    Our bowling should be ok vs Bangas but can see our batsman struggling.

    Um.... no Williamson?

    McCullum has been passed fit to keep wicket, so I don't see any point in playing Watling ahead of Williamson.

    Bangladesh paying $3.00 is very juicy even though I rate this NZ team.

    T20 World Cup | Martin Guptill plays straight bat... | Stuff.co.nz

    No matter how the Bangladeshi journalists framed their one question, Black Caps opener Martin Guptill still played it with a dead bat.

    Over and over again, Guptill was asked how he and the New Zealand team feel about the 4-0 one-day international whitewash they copped at the hands of Bangladesh in 2010.

    He hadn't been on that tour, for a start, and for that reason the four defeats had made no lasting impression on him. As for the team, Guptill said they hadn't talked about it and basically didn't care.

    It didn't deter the journalists but nor did it get them anywhere.

    Neither did an inquiry about how the New Zealand's top-three might look, when they play Bangladesh at the Pallekele Cricket Stadium in their first match of the Twenty20 World Cup tomorrow night (NZT).

    I don't see much point in playing Nicol if he isn't going to open. To me, he's a boundary hitter on the 2 out of 5 times he will come off. Doesn't look to me to be one to rotate the strike during the middle overs, even if it is just Twenty20.
    Greatest Ever Test XI: JB Hobbs, L Hutton, DG Bradman (c), IVA Richards, BC Lara, GS Sobers, AC Gilchrist (wk), Imran Khan, RJ Hadlee, MD Marshall, SK Warne 12th man: M Muralitharan


    Favorite XI: WG Grace, VT Trumper, IVA Richards, DCS Compton, FMM Worrell (c), AC Gilchrist (wk), CL Cairns, SK Warne, FS Trueman, SE Bond, T Richardson 12th man: H Larwood
