Reading the first few pages of this thread are pretty amusing
This thread is definitive proof that if a group of people engage in enough wishful thinking and unreasonable optimism then through sheer power of will the arrow of time will fork into a parallel universe where all your most fantastical dreams come true.
- Something amazing is built from the ashes left after a horribly managed mutiny against a young captain, which leaves the entire country hating all things NZ cricket;
- NZ cricket has a 'good culture';
- Brendon McCullum starts making big hundreds;
- BJ Watling turns into not just a handy lower order batsman but a very good keeper too;
- Southee and Boult turn into genuinely one of the best new ball pairs in the world;
- All our promising bowlers don't get injured;
- New players brought into the side actually perform;
- People on the street are excited about NZ cricket.
It's the most unlikely story.
When I started this thread:
a) We all (save Howsie) thought that Southee was rubbish and would continue to be so for some time;
b) Boult couldn't get a game;
c) Kane couldn't buy a run;
d) Wagner - who for some was the great white hope - had just bowled a pile of absolute puss;
e) John Wright was leaving as coach and was to be replaced by a 7 year old;
f) Chris Martin was bowling at about 120 kmh and still had a lock on 1st seamers spot;
g) Bracewell - the shining light from our home summer - was returning to being rubbish;
h) van Wyk was shelling chances and reducing Taylor's effectiveness at 1st slip - and his only replacement Watling obviously wasn't a proper keeper;
i) McCullum kept throwing his wicket away at the top of the order; and
j) Martin ****ing Guptill was probably our best batsman after Taylor.
So yeah, things have changed a bit. I never realistically thought New Zealand would be winning test series and seriously competing at global tournaments within a couple of years. Long may it continue
My contributions to this thread were standard Heef fare. Firstly, putting the boot into Millmow and then an off-topic reference to cult hero Luke Vivian.

I never thought Southee was rubbish. I was against him being dropped (even though it was probably good for his development) because even though he went for runs he always had the ability to produce wicket-taking deliveries, and our Test attack at the time he was dropped was horribly un-incisive.
