    Should the Black Caps do the haka?

    For those who don't know, the haka is a Maori welcome that is performed, most famously by the All Blacks.

    Does it have a place in cricket? thoughts?

    Nope. Not enough maori/pacific islanders in the squad. Doesn't have the same background or history as say League or Union.

    No. Daniel Vettori will not intimidate anyone.

    Exactly.. lol and cricket isn't a game where the teams literally colide so trying to intimidate an international cricket side isn't going to work.

    Lol imagine Flem and the lads doing the Haka, the opposition would probably crack up laughing. Big Daryll Tuffey might find himself back in the black caps though.

    the Haka would look stupid. I think we should sing national anthems though
    50 cent is only half the dollar he could be

    It would more likely make us look like more of a joke than an intimidating side. Just wondering who could do a good job doing it though hmmmmm maybe they could use face paints.

    Yeah, I think its more for the bigger boys in rugby, league & basketball.

    I really can't see The Marshall brothers, Vincent etc scaring anyone.

    They should just send out Tuffey, Bond, Oram, Cairns & maybe Fleming to do it. haha.

    Yes. Dan Vettori doing the Haka would be awesome.
    I bowl seam-ups and take the pace off the ball.
