    No you're both wrong. I meant the 2003 series in Sri Lanka where NZ beat Sri Lanka AND Pakistan.

    Well that is what happens when u play ODI is May in Sri Lanka, the pitches are going to be crap at that time. I doubt pitches in New Zealand would be better at that time of the year.

    Well we've never attempted to play ODI's at that time of the year anyway, it would just be a waste of time.
    I would even be amazed if the NZ/S.L test series in April gets completed.

    I would say NZ would be just ahead of Sri Lanka if Bond was playing along with Oram, Tuffy and Vettori (fully fit), even if Murali was fit and playing.

    However without Bond both Teams would be fairly even, though SL have the advantage in batting and NZ would have the advantage in bowling (taken as a whole-Despite Murali's presence.)

    Without Murali, its a no contest in my opinion. NZ would be miles ahead .

    You forgot the other key difference !!!

    NZ is a far better fielding unit than Sri-lanka..

    They're hard to separate.

    Both teams have very underrated batting power, and a prima donna strike bowler (Murali and Bond), backed up by an oft-unpublicised support (Vaas and Vettori).

    In the field, I think NZ's tenacity would pull through.

    Sri Lanka are probably the superior Test side, however NZ would clinch the ODI's.

    Remarkable teams both.

    Bond's not a prima donna. Neither is Murali. You've misused the words "prima donna" badly here. Now, if you had said Akhtar is a prima donna that would be OK.

    I used it in the terms of heavy dependence. Not loadsamoney, sex crazed basketball-playing prima donnas.

    Can't I twist a phrase even in the slightest sense? Or would you prefer me distorting phrases?

    No worries but calling someone a prima donna is pretty derogatory. It is used in a negative sense to describe vain and temperamental stars of the team, nothing to do with "heavy dependence" so in effect you did distort the phrase. Didn't think it was fair to label those 2 guys prima donnas that's all. No biggie

    Pleased that Katich is out. He just doesnt fit this team well, imo. He needs to just be back in the Test side, he has a better chance to play his natural game there and to relax.
    And at least this time it will be an offical match for Hussey, instead of that in-the-right-place-at-the-right-time spot he recieved last year!

    No Hopes for Australia in the 2nd ODI.
    Only two states to be in - Queensland and drunk.
