    Sure, sure.

    Rejecting 'analysis by checklist' and 'skill absolutism' since Dec '09
    'Stats' is not a synonym for 'Career Test Averages'

    The BCs have gone really well in the first two games but as someone else said, they have seriously benefited by batting first in both games. I'm super impressed with how our spinners (and bowlers) have gone, but I'm a little nervous that they have been flattered a bit given the conditions. That being said, Sodhi for me is the key to NZ winning this tournament. His form over the last 12 months or so has IMO been really impressive and he has been unlucky not to have played more for NZ in that time. He's been very good so far this WC so I hope he keeps that up. I'm not that convinced about Santers bowling. I rate him hugely as a player with a bucket load of potential that he is fast fulfilling, but whether he can keep up theses bowling stats which I think NZ will need to win in India I am not so sure. Same goes for N McCullum. I've never been a big fan. I guess my point is that I think we have one good spinner and a couple guys who have overachieved so far this tourney and I don't think that will be enough to keep on winning.

    On the batting front I think we have the lineup to do it although it does look a little fragile at times. I'd like to see Hesson/KW being a little more flexible on the lineup though given the game situation and pitch conditions. I feel like Anderson, Taylor, Elliot,and perhaps even Ronchi, Santer could float most going as high as four given the right situation and conversely others dropping right down to 8.

    The other weak link, but one we can do little about given the squad we have is Ronchi. His batting for me is a real disappointment. So many times lately (the last year+) he has come out potentially to play that classic 15 to 20 ball cameo and has typically failed. That kind of innings can often be a 20 run difference in the team total and I used to feel Ronchi was quite capable of that, now unfortunately he tend s to be a bit of a waste of space in the lineup.

    So overall I reckon we win this next game, and likely go undefeated in pool play. But to keep progressing from there we will need our top 4 to step up and the bowlers to keep up there great work.

    He has shown good form in PSL recently, the reason for getting picked.

    Funny thing is I don't actually recall Chappelli getting unreasonably stuck into Taylor, and I'm normally acutely aware of such criticism. He was certainly and naturally very complimentary in his commentary of Taylor's 290 at Perth, I remember that much.

    Chappell during commentary is a bit more diplomatic as he feels that is reaching a wider audience. Chappell during analysis on Cricinfo or when writing columns is when the bias comes out. I have never seen him praise a single captain other than Clarke and Smith. This is a guy who thought Graeme Smith was a defensive and negative captain. His special bias against Dhoni is also well known.

    I really just think Ian Chappell has a bias towards Ian Chappell, and people who he thinks are like Ian Chappell, play with a similar mindset to Ian Chappell and respect the legacy of Ian Chappell. It's not that nationalistic really.

    He liked McCullum as a captain, right?

    He rightfully criticized Baz for his ADHD tactics I the first test while Ian Smith was orgasming at every field change.

    I don't hate him, tbh.

    Chappell is a mixed bag but compared to the rest of the 9 team he's basically the god of commentary, so I can forgive him a lot.

    I've always liked Chappell's commentary. Might have a boring voice, but always seems to appreciate the finer points that only a thoughtful cricket brain would.

    I'd suggest Graeme Smith was a pretty defensive captain.
