    New Zealand have a massive problem at the lower levels. It is ridiculous that a country that has produced Bond, Hadlee and Crowe is losing to Bangladesh.

    Hey c'mon guys, lets not be too harsh on the NZC. I for one think it's great that their sending New Zealand A on their third tour of the year, even if it's a bit strange that they're just sending them back to Sri Lanka (and it's also a bit weird that Kyle Mills is in the NZA squad...though maybe they just want to give him some match practice).

    What?

    As far as I am concerned Bangers should forfeit yesterday's victory on the grounds that their opening batsman was degrading to cricket.
    I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowd
    one day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.

    Hey hey hey don't get all ivory tower here. I think you're forgetting Anton Devcich.

    Looks classy, bowls rubbish. Devcich looks rubbish and bats rubbish. So they're similar in one regard yes.

    Perhaps if Milne pisses the rest of his early 20s and mid 20s away on 'big calls' and Miley Styris photoshops....it'd still be a pretty poor analogy.
    Don't squander the gold of your days making a shrine of cricket videos, trying to improve the hopeless failure, giving your life away to the Blockys, the Devciches and the Weerasundaras! Surrender your devout little cricketing heart to the inured agribusinessman.

    I predicted before Milne bowled that he would get pasted on this pitch...and he didn't do nearly as badly as some of the other bowlers.

    I know it's favouritism, but this loss is down to the lack of slow bowling options.

    I'm a big Milne fan too, and I agree with your point about the spinners. But Milne did not bowl with the new ball - poor seam presentation and his length was all over the place (Mills was pretty terrible too). Yeah that hopeless shunt who opened for them was playing some awful shots and getting lucky, but I reckon 2 or 3 well pitched in-swingers would've been enough to clean him up.

    Was a bit weird really, since he was getting really good movement on the A tour and these conditions aren't vastly different. Some scrambled seam plan gone wrong perhaps?

    Most likely just nerves and adrenaline. Tension really ****s with your seam release
