    Did I just watch one of the great ODI recovery jobs ever?

    From 93 for 5 to 360/5 off 50 overs.

    Record partnership 267 runs @ RR: 8.90

    Grant Elliot (104*, SR 108.33) and Luke Ronchi (170*, SR 171.71) plundered Sri Lanka all around the park.

    Ronchi with the highest score by a NZ wicketkeeper, surpassed McCullum's 131 v Pakistan, 2009.

    Would just like to thank Wellington for having the wisdom to poach so nicely from Australia and South Africa.

    Yeah for sure.

    Rate Dhoni's knock here higher - 1st ODI: India v Pakistan at Chennai, Dec 30, 2012 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo - but this was some effort. NZ look really good for the cup now imo.

    Said it a few times but Ronchi is the absolute perfect number 7 in ODIs.

    Well.. there was 17/5 and then Kapil scoring 175 but NZ are finally looking like favorites for a WC rather than just dark horses.. which they were said to be for just about every WC I have watched.. And it is nice.. The country has some of the best and most committed cricket fans and they deserve a good competitive side that they are getting now

    they are also really hard triers and their team effort is always more than the sum of their players abilities etc

    Definitely up there, but Kapil's 175* and Viv's 189* definitely made under tougher conditions though.

    It'll be hilarious and amazing if we come up against aus in a knockout match and Ronchi ends up the difference between the sides. Bad luck Ronchi gets his movie style revenge.
