I don't feel gloomy. Although probably helps that I haven't seen any of the ODI games.
Next world cup isn't in Asia. McClenaghan, Southee, Mills, decent ODI attack for Australasian conditions. Plus Neesham, plus spinner.
Batting should be ok.
Although I do wonder sometimes at the team balance in the match day XIs that they pick. I reckon the ODI cattle is there but selections and tactics maybe not so much.
It's only ODIs anyway.
I reckon things are on the up. Plus Kippax's has successfully frightened me with the Bradburn bogeyman to start backing Hesson.
