    Nah 40(30) is fine, more than fine in fact. McCullum/Taylor is not going to come off every match. Guptill's current 13(20) is not fine though - really needs to pick it up - need someone to bowl some gentle 120km/h half volleys that he lift over the top for six.

    Just seen Joe Root's come in for Samit Patel. Strange move but I quite like it, Samit has only managed one or two expensive overs a game lately, so Root can probably cover that.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    I don't see why we never take to wright. He doesn't even bowl regularly in domestics ffs.

    Seems strangely difficult to get away - last match anyway. Two overs for 19 not bad so far though.

    Awesome. Guptill managed a single that time. Nice work.

    Good over from Tredders. Looks like he may bowl 4 overs for a change.

    Two offies on now. Would consider a 9-0 leg side field for Taylor.

    Guptill puts pressure on every other batsmen in the team by wasting all those deliverers at the start.

    OK, but then why give Guptill the opportunity to build an innings rather than Taylor and McCullum?

    For example, Taylor wouldn't have had to play that shot (stupid shot anyway, I know, but with Guptill at the end something had to be done).

    I wouldn't complain if we wanted to open with McCullum and Guptill. Guptill is legitimately one of our top T20 batsmen though - last five innings of 21(27), 101*(69), 24(20), 44(32), 47(31). He can score quickly later in his innings.

    I would draw a distinction between his usual slow start and today's which has just been toooo slow. Though perhaps it's a more difficult pitch?

    Shot Elliott.

    Guptil has had enough balls to at least do something by now...
