    Opener records v non-minnow nations

    Ryder 36.76 with SR of 100+

    McCullum 29.8 with SR of around 90.

    Ok, so Ryder's record does come from a small sample of matches (he's only opened on 18 occassions, he's also played another 5 times at number 3 where he's averaged around 50), but that's pretty exceptional. McCullum has a lot more experience down the order, and has performed the role with great success. He's also a bit quicker between the wickets, which counts for a lot in the death overs.

    I do concede that with the new fielding rules, Ryder's ability to find the gaps could come in handy in the later overs.

    Ross Taylor to leave hospital to play - Cricket News | TVNZ
    Taylor and Andrew Ellis suffered from gastroenteritis during yesterday's "depressing" Duckworth-Lewis loss in Pallekele. Taylor top-scored with 72 from 62 balls despite vomiting before he went out to bat.
    Whoa.

    and SL win the toss and predictably bat second so they can take advantage of rain. Lame.

    At least it's sunny for now. Hira in for Ellis and McCullum for Latham, so that strengthens the side a little.

    Why bother taking the likes of Milne and Latham over if you're not going to play them?

    Nice, Watling's now opening. Poor bastard, next game he'll probably be batting at eight and bowling abit of right arm off-spin.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Rain saving SL from a pasting. Watling was just about to unleash

    And I know it's been mentioned, but our batting order is stupid. Why do we insist on McCullum batting at 3? Should be:

    McCullum
    Nicol
    Williamson
    Taylor
    Watling/Franklin
    Franklin/Watling

    It's really not that difficult to put them in that order, but we just can't seem to do it.
