    WI v NZ

    Current match standings:

    NZ - 212/5 (44.2 overs)
    WI - 77/2 (11.4 overs)

    Gayle 42*
    Hooper 11*

    WI require another 135 runs, with 8 Wkts left

    RR - 6.26 RRR - 6.52

    It's going to be close

    What about Styris?!, 62* aswell as 6 wickets
    has Scott Styris turned the corner?

    Hitchcock has been impressive aswell this series. Its the players like Harris, Tuffey, Bond & Vettori who are not stepping up.

    New Zealand won by 6 runs on the D/L method. great performances by Astle 91*, Styris 63* and 6/25 and good tight bowling by Hitchcock 1/25.

    I think we came to expect too much from Bond. He hasn't had too much top class cricket lately- still, no excuse for the TERRIBLE bowling, too many wides, its frustrating.
    life's a gift thats why they call it the present

    Yes, it's just a pitty that they normally go downhill for the next.

    Before all you NZ fans moan at me I did say Normally (Did I get away with that one )

    I wouldn't give up on Bond yet, before the VB Series he had a proper preparation e.g. going to India with NZ 'A' & the NZ Domestic season.

    All the preparation he has had before the W.I tour is a couple of lower grade matches in Darwin.

    The problem with most New Zealander's is, is that they are as quick to write off a sports player as they are to gloat about them.

    Yup

    i bet you S.Styris wont do that good in the next series ( who ever its against ) and the media will bring him down and he might not even get that much a chance

    Yes that is a very good point and it's just like that here in England as well

    Yep, one good innings and you're amazing, one duck and you're useless.

    Unless you play for Liverpool or Surrey. In which case you're always brilliant !

    I think that you should add Man U to that list!
