    I agree with Scaly that McClenaghan should have been MOTM. Awesome spell of bowling.

    Good to see Franklin contribute with both bat and ball. The downside is that our ******** selectors and coach will use his LO form as evidence to justify his continued selection in the Test team.

    McCullum's field settings in this match were very good, much better than in the Tests and better than Taylor's when he was ODI captain. But, FFS, can we PLEASE stop using Mills to bowl at the end of the innings!?

    Lot's of room for improvement from NZ (and SA). Quite a few passengers in that NZ performance: Elliot, Neesham, Guptill. And Nicol could have been in contention for SA's MOTM, he was that harmful to the NZ effort.

    Would love to see Munro come in for Nicol.

    Most likely your best found this tour. Looked good and by far your best bowler this game.

    I only watched the first 30 overs before fallin asleep, but.... is the praise for McCullum's field settings confusion by fans re: new law meaning only allowed 4 outside the circle? Or was he genuinely good and better than his rival?

    Great spell from McClenaghan at the start yesterday. Bit of a a shock to see NZ with nevertheless.

    Woah, I missed this? How did you do it? I didn't see any thing re: this, and if they mentioned it I probably had the mute button on and mised it.

    I think due to a power failure at the ground, they only had pictures and no commentary for a period.

    Yep, was awesome.

    Went to bed during the second blackout. Surprised and pleased to see us getting over the line. Love odi's like this so much more than t20's.

    Went to bed when Watling and McCullum were batting quite well together. Thought we were a middling chance to win from there but very surprised to see we did it with runs from the lower order. Mills hasn't scored any runs in ages, while it looks like Franklin worked the ball around nicely as in T20 world cup.

    Disgraceful not to be able to have the review system for a time there.

    Haha wow, didn't expect this.

    I'll admit it: even though I realise Franklin's batting in ODIs in the past couple of years has actually been credible because down at 6/7 he can get away with his "technique", I didn't think he would score runs here. Most of his success has come in the subcontinent where the pitches are slower and he appears more comfortable.

    McClenghan is test quality. Would've picked him on the basis of the first T20 almost, he's just always making batsmen look uncomfortable.

    The more faith I lose in Franklin the more he seems to come up with absolute gems like these. Decent LO player for now. McCullum can play as a specialist fielder tbh.

    Yeeeeaaaah bowl mill5 at the d3ath cuz he's exxxprieyinced
