    New to this thread, but have to say I am very optimistic. The pace attack seems the strongest it's been since Cairns, Nash, Doull & Allott were around. Potentially it's better.

    In terms of spin I think Sodhi looks very promising.

    Top order: I thought Guptill was making good progress after his county stint but seems to have regressed again. I'm hopeful Jeet Raval will find some form with CD. Rutherford seems to have found his feet at FC level. Williamson should become world class.

    You're doing it wrong.

    Boult to Mathews, OUT, Caught at second slip! It was a length ball going across Angelo, who tried to hit it hard towards the leg side and got an outside edge that flew fast towards Guptill, who took a reflex catch in front of his face

    Is this the same side that sent us home from India
    I doubt it?
    A team renowned for being a "pull you by the scruff of the neck" outfit.
    Let's hope they can get this one right

    Unfortunately, SL's recent efforts in Australia have made our win against them seem a lot less impressive and hopeful. It's starting to look like Vettori might not play much more for New Zealand. The team will definitely be stronger with Ryder, Taylor and Southee, but I still reckon that (weather permitting) we'll lose our next 7 tests on the trot and get that record that we narrowly missed out on last year.

    Hopefully SA continue to totally trounce NZ this series. Will end Hesson and should hopefully force NZC to not leave out their international quality batsmen anymore.

    And change how we train players, too. Batting techniques throughout the country seem quite rotten.
