    *Official* New Zealand in Pakistan

    Well the first of the One Day Internationals has started

    and we have a few inexperienced players in our team.. but they have a chance to show what they got and hopefully do well.. as our batting really needs some new strength

    and saying that

    NZ are 156/3 (34.2 ov) R.R of 4.51

    Sinclair just out for 55 in 76 balls well played by him getting his ODI chance again !

    and debutant Hamish Marshall who plays for N.D back at home is on 44 in 62! good stuff from him hopefully gets his 50 and maybe 100 from there !

    Harris has been dropped.

    Walker, Jones, Marshall, Cumming, Mason and Walker are all making their ODI debuts for New Zealand.

    Cumming and Jones put on 49 for the 1st wicket and good to see Marshall take his chance by making a half-century.

    Cumming scored brisk 25 off 33 balls.

    I know it's early but Jones may step aside for the 2nd match - 41 balls for 16 runs......

    good to see Sinclair & Marshall both get 50s - best effort by the top order for a long time and the run rate is good at over 4 1/2....

    it will be interesting to see how the bowling attack goes....

    Superb stuff from the NZ batsmen...especially by Sinclair, Marshall & Cairns.

    Oram & Cumming also played a couple of handy innings.

    Hopefully the bowlers will gain confidence from the good batting.

    That was Cairns at his absolute best...probably one of the best innings i've seen him play.

    47.2 Danish Kaneria to Cairns, SIX, short in length, tossed up a bit,
    Cairns goes back and clouts the ball over mid wicket for a huge
    six
    47.3 Danish Kaneria to Cairns, SIX, What-a-shot! Down the track, good
    use of the feet, gets to the pitch of the ball and smack, sends
    the ball high in the air and a big six over long off
    47.4 Danish Kaneria to Cairns, SIX, another one! heaved away to mid
    wicket for the third consective six of the over

    I feeling this would happen. People like Cumming, Marshall etc would make a handy contribution.

    Here is their opportunity and they will want to take it as when they get home, they might have some competition. This is only good for NZ cricket.

    I don't really mind if Cumming is only reaching say 20 or 30 on this tour & then getting out..at least he is creating a platform unlike Nevin & Vincent for which the big hitters like Oram & Cairns can launch off at the end of the innings.

    hmmmmmmmmmm

    Some of the selections for this tour seem a bit pointless. I mean why take Wamsley who is 30 and Mason 29. Why not blood some young guns?

    46.1 Mason to Abdul Razzaq, two runs, another skier went high in the air, McCullum under it and drops a catch
    Is it worth it?
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    New Zealand, find some death bowlers.

    Pakistan needed 65 off 6.3 overs.

    They did it in 4.3. Razzaq 47* (22b, 3x4, 2x6), Sami 17* (8b, 2x6)

    Wasim Akram: The most sKiLlFuL bowler in history!

    Mcgrath said he is fond of the genius "Akram would power through the crease and do whatever he wanted with the old and new ball"

    Allan Border "If I ever get a chance to be reborn as a cricketer, I would want to be Wasim"

    Richards, Tendulkar and Waugh described Akram as the most dangerous bowler they had ever faced.
