adams cost them the game with the dropped catch.
Jesse was batting well for a while and looked like he actually gave a **** for a little while too.
I wish all these batsmen would stop pulling good length balls across the line. It works against average medium pacers but as soon as they try it against anyone >135k it fails horribly.
See Munro, Nicol, McCullum and Guptill occasionally...etc.
BFJ must be sick and tired of telling journalists that he's made no decision about when/if he plans on returning to the Blackcaps.
Edit: dismal fail to quote this - "Phil Mustard is the equivalent of taking home the dusty bird who's 10 years past her best because you deem it a better option than sleeping alone."
You actually say that like it's a bad thing. Come on mate, we enjoy cricket ffs, lol, what other options do we have?

Vimes tells it how it is:
The innings was lopsided but if he's going to score 97* off 70 odd balls or whatever every match by the end then it doesn't matter how he gets there. The only thing you could say would be that his really slow start put too much pressure on the other batsmen who couldn't play their normal games because of it, and that's a fair enough criticism I suppose.
Grobbelar should have run himself out at the end to get mustard back on strike.
Instead he backed himself to hit the winning runs.

Good to see CD's young bowlers back on the park. When is Small scheduled to have his operation?
Good to see Young, Milne, and Small playing relatively well.
Time for more than a very pleasantly compiled 12 today, Neesh. Let's see it.
Don't squander the gold of your days making a shrine of cricket videos, trying to improve the hopeless failure, giving your life away to the Blockys, the Devciches and the Weerasundaras! Surrender your devout little cricketing heart to the inured agribusinessman.

Outstanding figures for Duffy today (and Fuller to some extent). Twice in a row he has been given the last over in a tight finish, he won them the previous match (by one run) when he conceded just 5 of that last over, today the damage was done up front.
Certainly not afraid down in Otago to give him responsibility.
Highest score, and first t20 fifty for Neesham as well. Congrats.
