    Pretty amazing, yeah. For those who haven't seen it, here's a dodgy Youtube clip:

    Hopefully a better one might pop up soon.

    McJerk's answer to the question what was the difference between the two NZ innings was not to name Guptil but just to say that the team had been too aggressive in the last game. "But they are not to be faulted for that".

    Anyway can't believe how much the game meant to the NZ squad they were ALL biting fingernails on the sidelines. Seemed like a world cup final.

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

    I obviously haven't forgiven Hesson yet - the footage of him grinning like a lunatic after the win and going straight to McCullum to shake his hand annoyed the **** out of me.

    I see kiwi fans are not enamoured of Hesson. Is there some secret bond between he and McCullum which is pissing you all off?

    Yeah, something like that.

    The way they looked so satisfied with themselves after the win really bothered me, since really they should have been just saluting Guptill and showing appreciation for his effort - which, especially considering his recent illness, was a bloody heroic one.

    Yes, it's pretty clear that without Guptill NZ would have struggled mightily to win. While SA made errors in bowling and in the field you might also suggested that he was the one who put them under pressure.

    He probably wasn't smiling after the first match.

    Guptill looks really good when he gets going.

    Don't think SA will play Phangiso again.

    Worst part of the win. Can't stand seeing that gremlin with a smile on his face.

    "****nuckle Ugly Hemorrhoid Gimptard" works for me. Or Fuhgles (the wonder coach) for short.

    Also, allowing the middle order to express themselves.

    This sort of pseudo-political bull**** has to stop. It's cringeworthy in extremis.
    Yes corporate-style psychobabble sure has crept into sporting language in last 10-15 years. I'm not sure where it came from but there've always been a few in our team who seemed rather enthusiastic about taking it up and then spouting it at every opportunity.

    Creeps into the actual cricket too - i.e. last ten years NZ saw a great Australia team regularly score at 4 per over in tests and has been obsessed with that ever since. Phrases like 'positive intent', 'proactive batting', express yourself' and various phrases around 'aggressive batting' creep in, are repeated ad nauseum and somehow become unquestioned orthodoxy.

    We played well when I slept through the match?

    Fair enough.

    Boult to Mathews, OUT, Caught at second slip! It was a length ball going across Angelo, who tried to hit it hard towards the leg side and got an outside edge that flew fast towards Guptill, who took a reflex catch in front of his face

    This was a very unconvincing win.

    • dewey wet ball and haze made bowling second way harder

    • Guptill was out LBW twice

    • Only one batsman scored runs

    • Rob Nicol exists

    IDGI either. He's in the side as an allrounder yet Nicol bowls ahead of him.

    So Guptill should've been out four times all up? Team Guptill ftw, indestructible.
