    I know it's not a World Cup final or anything, but it does seem ridiculous that international matches are still being played on grounds without floodlights.

    'Bad light stopped play' should never be a feature of ODIs.

    Yes, but both teams knew that, commentators mentioned it when NZ were over time when bowling. So NZ true target was always the DL mark somewhere between 20 - 25 overs. MoM = Matthews for getting his spinners to rip through to 20 over mark.

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

    And a series which showed that Anderson and Neesham and Latham have the goods, that Nathan Mc still has a contribution to make. Ronchi and Munro still in limbo. Village-style cricketers shown up badly.

    NZ certainly weren't taking it seriously or they wouldn't have rested their best players.

    I was going to say "what about the 2003 tour to Pakistan when Astle + Fleming etc stayed home and we lost 5-0", but checked that team and it included Hamish Marshall, Cairns, Harris, Oran, B Mac and Vettori ... so I'd agree.

    That was when Hamish Marshall was "discovered" I believe; batted well despite mediocre domestic returns and was given a run in the proper team as a result.

    Sinclair played that series too. I recall a slow 55 batting at about five to save the team after the top order had been rolled. WAG.

    Mills would have given his left nut to have players like Cairns, Oram or Vettori.

    He had Devcich, Nicol and Ellis.

    He'd have probably given his left nut for Sinclair, Marshall or Richard ****ing Jones from that series; anyone to actually set a platform at the top.

    Just another great feature of Sri Lankan limited overs series in November dominated by rain and random events; deserves the title of cricket's unofficial 4th format.

    Rob Nicol and Andy Ellis.

    I feel like we could name the whole domestic competition squad members before I'd pick either of them.

    I can't keep up with all the coming and going, is Rutherford still over there? (I had no idea Southee was back in NZ until I saw him in pink on Friday night)

    Broom is now over there, but who has he replaced?

    Just there for his T20 awesomeness - probably replacing Elliott

    To add to the confusion Neesham has hurt his pinky. Out 4-6 weeks

    New Zealand Cricket - Neesham ruled out of Twenty20s
