lol callapso starts
Martin gets a wicket, and now his average is under 40, and thus he is no longer what I consider dire/rubbish in the ODI game. Well done that man.

Is it raining? Or are my eyes more useless without my glasses than I think?
Oram's started alright.
...I say as Cook drives him for 3.
EDIT: We got thrashed in South Africa and Australia, our last two serious series. England aren't the greatest ODI side remember, still have their fair share of passengers.

I think sometimes cricinfo is quite funny.
3.30pm "If Seddon Park had a roof like Stadium Australia this wouldn't be a problem," says Andy from New Zealand. No, we'd have other problems, such as a generation of fans with complexions like snooker players. All hail the grassy-banked cricket grounds I say.
Meanwhile, Dr Santana from Samoa has just emailed to offer me Viagra for the fourth time this hour. Anyone else out there? Drop us some feedback.
36 overs 'ere.
NZ will be aiming to keep this under 200 me thinks, and with England falling over like a sack of ****e, it may very well be 150.
Michael Mason bowling magnificently here. Gutted to see KP fail to kick on, think the rain break can be blamed for that.
England showing how bad they really are.
Its funny how a few games in "joke format" make people think they are suddenly awesome. Remember this is dire old England folks.
Oh, and NZ is ranked 3rd in the world.
Oh, and havent we won 7 out of 9 against the Poms?
Can anyone tell me how Mason went? Did he get some movement? Normally gets a bit predictable after a while.
England's running is ridiculous. Tee he he.

Also, you've got to realise that possibly the biggest reason we managed to reach #3 in the world is no unavailable to be selected. Add to that Stephen Fleming's retirement, McMillan's too, and Vincent's mental illness. While we've still got the core group of players (McCullum, Vettori, Oram, Mills, Styris), we've also got players like Chris Martin, an out-of sorts Jeetan Patel, a Ross Taylor who is entirely dependent on one shot and a largely unproven Michael Mason. Jamie How has had a good start to his career, but hasn't proven himself just yet, while Ryder hasn't proven anything other than a big of a slogger, to me anyway. Fortunately for us, the class of core players we've got has largely hidden our weaknesses, except when under heavy scrutiny. I really don't want to sound overly negative, but we've still got a lot of passengers.
