    I don't know about first innings scores but this series is definitely up there as one of the most dissapointing. Probably not as bad as the Bangladesh one but our team looked promising a month ago and now we've been reduced to this.

    Onto another topic, jeez, Parore is still looking good. Could still be out there.
    In the last 5 years since I started watching again this is the worst. I am sure we have been dismissed for less - I remember a few failures in that tri series against SL and India. Those didn't bother me as much because we just failed. The whole strategy here was just as DOG says timidity personified. Only CDG asserted himself. And then in the end he looked outclassed against Steyn.

    McCullum is exempted he played well

    Nicol's inning in particular was unacceptable.

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

    Batting First against quality opposition

    Batting Second against quality opposition

    New Zealand and the West Indies are the only teams in the top 8 that actually improve their run-rates when batting second. Alarmingly, New Zealand jump from 4.97 to 5.33.

    This is where we want an old Eden Park pitch with no bounce that's low and slow IMO. They don't produce the best cricket, but they would give us the best chance of beating SA with our medium pacers and slow bowlers.

    Why produce these hard pitches with good bounce. It's just playing into their hands I tend to think.

    We would never improve. We would be like Zimbabwe.

    Preparing green tops for tests is ok feels funny preparing pitches that favour us for ODIs.

    Unless you're incredibly talented, obviously.

    Was given the gig for the first time for his franchise in our domestic one-day cup this year and got a hundred. Otherwise doubt anything else.

    Technically correct, has the capability to maybe bat as high as 6 one day in the longer form.

    Just watching Amla - I don't think the ball is coming on perfectly. But he is dealing with it well.
