I know we haven't won anything yet, but after what happened to us in South Africa and all the Taylor/McHesson rubbish that was swirling around, plus the fact that NZC stated they would be focusing on ODI cricket, I am so stoked at how we have performed over the last 4 tests.
Yes, our batting can be dire. Yes, we need a spinner who is better than Kane. Yes, we may still lose this test. But I'm really impressed by the way this team has turned around. We had an "NZ Doom and Gloom" thread not that long ago. It hasn't really needed to be used in recent times.
Good on youse fellas.
Take it back - Doom and Gloom thread back up and running I see.
He averages 30-odd in test cricket because he still hasn't worked out that "pitch up = good. Short = bad."
Meh, I said it yesterday and I'll say it again, sometimes bowlers just get their length wrong because they're not bowling well, not because they think a different length would be better. Broad got a big bag at Lords last year, just floating up full deliveries. I doubt he really thinks that bowling everything short is the way to go.
