    Don't squander the gold of your days making a shrine of cricket videos, trying to improve the hopeless failure, giving your life away to the Blockys, the Devciches and the Weerasundaras! Surrender your devout little cricketing heart to the inured agribusinessman.

    Mills with 2-21 off his 4. I wonder whether on these slower pitches he's a better bet than McC's peaches and pies.

    And a run out! Ball goes to mid wicket, they try to run a tight two, too tight, Devcich is run out for 2, 194-9 now, 7 from 3 needed ^RI

    Kyle Mills the new man - Devcich hits the 2nd ball for two to long on, 7 from 4 needed ^RI

    And Neesham is caught on the boundary at mid off going for the big hit, 192-8 now, 9 from 5 the target #wt20 ^RI

    Nine needed from the last, it's @jimmyneesh and @bigcall13 to get us home #wt20 ^RI

    Ronchi caught on the boundary at mid-off for 21, 191-7, 10 from 7 needed #wt20 ^RI

    Starc bowls @jimmyneesh a beamer, no ball, 10 from 8 needed #wt20 ^RI

    Anderson pierces the gap between two fielders at mid-wicket, then gets caught at long off for 29, 13 from 10 needed #wt20 ^RI

    Should of won that, Devich looked to have bowled well and Hira rubbish. Guptil, Devich. McCullum, Williamson, Taylor, Anderson, Ronchi, Neesham, N McCullum, Southee, Mills should be our team, not sure of the order.

    Australia played 13 players, NZ played 12 players, Australia retired both their openers. Winning is utterly meaningless.

    Why is the umpire having a bowl?

    Nvm, a bit fuzzy atm. Woke up from a Valium induced nap and not a lot making sense. Going back to slep, sorry.

    India's fielding is hilarious.

    If he's not going to bowl him, he shouldn't be on the field. His fielding has been atrocious.

    Agree with Jono & GGG somewhat. The NZ camp will no doubt give the 'it's a practice game' answer, but you don't practice to lose with 13 needed from 11 balls. Negative psychological points to NZ I'm afraid.

    disappointed with our boys performance today but well done to WIndies who deserved their win..They choked us(again) and the fact that we couldnt hit more sixes really strangled us..good for us to get a kick up the A** before the tournament begins..cant believe the Aus v NZ score wow and India looking good too...

    I'm okay if Anton plays, but no way am I okay if he opens (I know you didn't set this in stone). Gup scored runs today but if he gets stuck, there's no hope the bloke at the other end is going to alleviate the situation. I can see us being 18-0 off 6 against SA or Sri Lanka if they open with spin. Just because he's a batsman at domestic level doesn't mean he should be up the order if we require him as a bowling option. If he bats in the top six it's pushing the likes of Ross, Corey, Jimmy and Ronchi lower down than ideal, robbing them of balls etc. No one can tell me Anton is better equipped to bat in the top six ahead of any of those guys + Brendon, Kane.

    By the way I lied, I'm not okay with Anton playing.
