    Australia vs New Zealand tour

    Who do u think will be star players in this tour. The predictables or the unpredictables.
    Name the people who u think are going to stand out??
    personally i think that Nathan Astle should do well as he is very consistent and in form. Plus his 220 not long ago, plus i think Daryl Tuffey will do good.
    Hopefully Vettori will recover from his ankle injury to do some damage!!!

    wat do u think?
    well, wat can i say. I'm perfect!

    I reckon Stephen Fleming and Craig McMillan along with Mark Richardson will be the stand outs for this tour. Nathan Astle doesn't play very well on hard bouncy pitches.

    Yeah I agree with you in terms of bowling. Daryl Tuffey and Dan Vettori will be the pick of the bowlers.

    Hopefully Matthew Bell will show some of the talent we have seen glimpses of last season. If Sinclair gets going, he could also affect the result of the match. Fleming, Richardson, McMillan and Astle are our top batsmen and we will need them to do well.

    In the bowling, I agree that Tuffey and Vettori will be our top bowlers, but Cairns and Nash are good enough to do some damage too.

    Such a mature comment there, and a little inaccurate looking at how close they were to actually winning today.

    If that ball where Cairns was caught by Ponting on the boundary had cleared the rope...Ah well, it goes down in history as a draw.

    And to counter that, if Warne caught Vettori first ball off Lee then Australia might have been able to enforce the follow on and rip through the New Zealand batting card. No point crying about anything though, it was a great finish and unfortunate that it ended in a draw.

    How about if Langer had been given out 4th ball of the match?

    I'd have to say that the LBW decision would have been too early to make a big impact on the remainder of the match. If Langer went out fourth ball of the match there is no way that the middle order would have played some of the shots that they did.

    I actually went to the first day of the test and going from 0 for 220 odd to 6 for certainly was interesting. Plus it was damn hot sitting in the sun all day since all the licenced sections under the grandstands were full!

    I dont think you can read too much into New Zealand almost pulling off the win, apart from that Chris Cairns can hit a cricket ball along way. Because realistically speaking... if it wasn't for a very generous declaration due to all the rain, Australia would have won comfortably.
