    Man, is this NZ side the most overrated team in recent years or what? Yes, they are a quality OD outfit that work together well as a team despite lacking really world class individual performers, and yes they can make a fair claim to be the outright number two side in the world at the moment. But to suggest that they are man for man (meaning, based on individuals) even in the same league as Australia is ludicrous. Sri Lanka aren't far behind them, and if England can sort out their bowling and selection issues and get Flintoff back they will be closing in as well. Frankly, I picked Australia to beat New Zealand 4-1 in this series, and I haven't seen anything to change my mind on the matter.

    A good OD side? Absolutely. A great, star-studded lineup breathing down Australia's neck? Not even close.

    New Zealand certainly have some quality players (two of their best, Harris and Oram, are missing - and of course another has been missing for God-knows-how-long).
    But I don't think they have as much quality as Australia.
    To suggest that England are anywhere near them, though, is ludicrous.
    If they could have picked Papps, Oram, Harris and Bond ahead of Tuffey, Wilson\Adams, Sinclair and Mills, I reckon the series would have been a hell of a lot closer (and it ain't like the 1st game wasn't incredibly close anyway).

    As a Kiwi...I'd say on current form the only NZ'er that would make the Aussie oneday side at the moment would be Vettori for Brad Hogg.......But thats all !!

    Bond for anyone bar McGrath (if he was fit - which it seems there is actually a genuine possibility of happening - soon).
    I also think Astle's a better player than Hayden. Regardless of any difference in average. Astle's been poor recently, of course.

    Harris, a has-been?
    His record hasn't denegrated much recently as I've noticed - particularly his bowling (and I'd pick him as a bowler alone - far better than Tuffey and Mills)
    It's not surprising he's currently struggling to get in, given that he's injured.

    Sadly, the Aussie one-day team is almost man for man a better side. Vettori over Hogg? Maybe, it would be close though - Hogg has improved a lot recently. The Aussies don't really have a 'class' all-rounder. Symonds' bowling isn't great compared to Cairns' (career wise), but his batting is more consistant - especially over the last few years.

    I noticed this little gem on an Australian cricket site and thought wow ..

    "I've just come back from NZ and was amazed at the national inferiority complex that exists there, when comparing with anything Australian.Their cricket team believe they are nowhere near as good as Australia and that's a fact. While people in Australia would hardly give NZ a thought as they go through their daily lives, many Kiwis are obsessed with how they are doing in comparision to the Aussies"
