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.
McCullum is exempted he played well
Nicol's inning in particular was unacceptable.
I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowdOverrated XI Warner, Rutherford, Steve Smith, Rahane, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaulone day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.
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.

Blocky on Martin Guptill and Ish Sodhi. 20/11/2014.
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.
Has Parnell done a bit of opening before?
****ing Amla and his immaculate timing...
They're talking about Heef on the radio.
Oh ****, not good fielding.
