    Chasing large totals is not good for my heart as NZ can quite often come very close chasing down large totals or just miss out. Its only happened really against Australia first there was:

    Chasing 322
    Chasing 331
    Chasing 343
    Chasing 336

    These matches are all really within the last year or so.

    It truly is remarkable how often they've done such a thing either successfully or so-near-successfully recently.

    As a New Zealander I believe that NZ struggle without targets to chace down because they themselves do no set up adequate goals when they bat first. I think that when they get scores of over 300 to chase down they tend to play more aggressively and thats how they get close. If only they could emulate those sorts of performances batting first then there would be more of a chance of winning more matches.

    Very good point Mccullum only really comes to the fore when he is needed, when there is no need I hardly ever see him play a decent innings.

    Are you saying that's a bad thing?

    Probably not, but you could argue it's a major factor in why NZ traditionally struggle when batting first.

    I don't think McCullum is a "major factor" in that

    I nearly did.

    These chases are just too nerve racking for me. Can we just learn how to bat first and win that way?

    What, by having the oppo finish 2 short thanks to a dot-ball off the last ball?
