We left around the 15 over mark of the SA chase. NZ already looked a beaten side. Although, the fact that it was damn cold also had something to do with it. Sitting in the terraces with that damn wind blowing all around was a throw-back to winter. Our batting effort had me a little flummoxed: some soft dismissals and crazy runs.

If the pitch is anything like a good cricket wicket with a bit of pace then NZ are liable to get thoroughly outclassed by South Africa at the best of times. But without Vettori, Taylor and Ryder as well... seriously what were people expecting? South Africa love to bully weak sides so it's not like they were going to turn up, play rubbish and make a game of it.
Without bias, if Flynn can dominate Shield cricket (could go either way since he's has plenty of ups and downs domestically season by season), he should easily be at least first reserve when ****s aren't injured.
Anyone know why Taylor didn't bat in CD's innings?
check out the domestic thread flametree.
1) Ross is the Boss.
2) See point 1.
Overrated XI M Bracewell, Burns, Rahane, Don Voges, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaul
Broom with a 72* is good to see as well.
Van Wyk has been called up for cover. Watling has some hip problem.
van Wyk should play even if Watling plays tbh.
Thank goodness rugby & league seasons have started in NZ. What's cricket again?
