Looks like NZ Herald are in on the doom and gloom for the Black Caps.
Cricket: When will the Black Caps next win? - Sport - NZ Herald News
My opinion on it is I feel as though the current batsmen are taking their positions for granted because they know there's really no one in domestic cricket pushing for a spot in the team. Seems like the previous coaches are a bit fed up with them as well with their recent comments in the media.
Is the real problem then that these days there's no real depth in the domestic game now and the lack of first-class cricket being played back in NZ for the batting lineup to practice their games?
I think as well we're perhaps getting a little carried away with the expectations of the current team. In all seriousness, there isn't a lot of experience and battle hardened players there.
I would say stick with the current lineup and just hang onto them for a year or two and hope all the Test cricket that is coming up for the Black Caps helps them grow for the future but with less expectations expected of the team. Short term pain for hopefully long term gain.
