    Yep, given SA played 7 bowlers and 4 batsman, it was embarrassing. Well played the Jaaps of course, but we were nine shades of shizenhausen the entire series and the selection policy has me flummoxed.

    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.

    Fair call. New Zealand are also missing Styris and Oram from the team that won the quarter final. Given that New Zealand replaced them with Nicol, Franklin, CdG, Ellis and Bates this was always going to be one sided. Makes a mockery of all the commentators who were crowing about the new found depth of New Zealand cricket.

    Is it not too late to recall Daniel Flynn?

    I mean he can at least get to forty and he's coming off a hundred in the Shield so he might even break into the mighty fifties.

    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?

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    He could be called up for the second test if he does well in his second innings of this game and his next Plunket Shield game against Wellington. I'd say it would need to be a significant score though. With his injury it would be harsh to rush him into a test match against Steyn, Morkel etc after he's only just found his feet again at first class level even if he could do a better job than Rob Nicol. When's Brownlie back anyway?

    Broom with a 72* is good to see as well.

    We might have to lock Steve in a cupboard afterwards though.
    Had to lock myself in a cupboard so I didn't smash things...awful run out. Played reasonably well before that though, didn't he? Struggled against Steyn but he's hardly a lone ranger in that respect.

    Van Wyk has been called up for cover. Watling has some hip problem.

    That reminds me of England in many sporting codes. Bully a weakened or disinterested team and all of a sudden they have the best player in every position from 1 to 11
