    Shocking effort by our middle order. Our middle order has always been a problem. Why can't we just fix the fact that they score too slowly in the middle overs? Why is it so damn difficult? All our chokes can be traced back to the middle order. It is quite frankly ridiculous.

    Woop!! Top ball by Jimmy.

    I think this win can be solely attributed to the fact that Nicol wasn't playing.

    Pretty sure it was sarcasm.

    Neesham did the business, but FFS, to have your best bowler not bowl his full quota and have to bring in a part timer who's only bowled 3 overs to bowl the final over cold, is bloody terrible captaincy, it has to be said.

    While this was nice, I hope this isn't used as an excuse to sweep the test series under the carpet.

    Heh, personally was saving a comment like this until after the ODI series finishes.

    Hesson and White are on their way to the broom cupboard as we speak.

    It really just fits in perfectly with their split captaincy story.
    Rejecting 'analysis by checklist' and 'skill absolutism' since Dec '09
    Rejecting 'selection deontology' since Mar '15
    'Stats' is not a synonym for 'Career Test Averages'

    What are you talking about?

    All is well with NZ cricket and it always has been. Nothing bad has ever happened. Move along people.



    Some resemblance to Chris Moller there

    Great stuff. Nice for Neesham to get a wicket to finish it off. The fielding hadn't been that great in the early part of the tour so good to see it improve. I feel vindicated too in supporting Elliot's selection

    With the NZC saying the main focus was on the one day world cup, they would say that this tour has now been hugely successful...

    You should be a coach.

    "Right, here's the plan: lads in the middle, you score faster"

    "Thanks, Coach!"

    Great effort by our boys. Love Williamson's ability to score big. He is going to break every NZ batting record going.
