    Love that from Nicol - can't get off the mark and can barely get bat on ball, so brings out the charge-and-slog.... but inside edges to backward square leg. Village is the word.

    Ug, thought Latham had been fairly good against spin until that.

    Need rain to come back and hand us a deserved 1-0 series win

    For some reason our selectors prefer village cricketers like Nicol, and Devcich (to a lesser extent) than proper players like Rutherford.

    and Watling ...

    I don't understand the tentativeness (apart from Devcich). It's only a 33 over innings. We bat down to Neesham at 9 and Mills at 10. Top order should try and play a few attacking shots, not push and poke for the odd single.

    It really was hard to understand why Nicol and Ellis of all people were called into this squad as last minute replacements - I thought we were finally shot of them.

    Rutherford in ODIs perhaps not the best example of a proper player though.

    ... and that was horrible from Elliott.

    Munro latest member of the Village People - this is not pretty. Nicol still at the other end too.

    Thanks goodness not for long.

    1* (7), 0 (1), 1 (12).

    Would have been terrible if he'd got a scratchy 40 (50) and stayed in the reckoning as a ODI player.

    And gives Ronchi and Jimmy a chance for a decent bat.

    I think you guys are being a little harsh on village cricketers...

    It frustrates me when teams like NZ in this situation decide they have no chance of winning so just decide to bat for a respectable total. Go hard or go home.

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

    It's a trial game too tbh, JimmyGS in particular would know it.

    Bolster that ODI average of 6 to something more reflective of your ability, win Kippax his 7/1 bet.

    A suitably pathetic ending to suitably pathetic series.

    That's just a ridiculous miscalculation by the officials. Would've struggled to make it through a 27 over a side match, let alone 33.
