    New Zealand - 2007 Onwards

    Thought I might start a new story.


    This time it's 2007 and NZ are about to tour Australia. But due to a major contract dispute the regular contract players have gone on strike and will refuse to tour. They are backed by their coach and some management. NZ cricket board and isn't standing down and have appointed me to coach and manage the team. However, I cannot pick anyone who's played a test match before (ODI's are okay). Should be interesting.

    Best of luck! A lot of the players you've got will be in their prime - I think you might spring a few suprises...

    Things aren't getting better for NZ. We were dismissed for under 200 twice in a row.

    England overpowered us by 91 runs in a match with very few positives. We improved in our next game against Australia but we seem to be a long way off from winning a match.

    We had the same Xi for both matches:

    NZ XI
    1. N Horsley
    2. R Taylor
    3. N Broom
    4. R Nicol
    5. J Ryder
    6. A Ellis
    7. P McGlashan (c, wk)
    8. N McCullum
    9. E Thompson
    10. M Gillespie
    11. G Aldridge


    England vs New Zealand
    England 4 for 224
    K Pietersen 67, I Bell 62
    M Gillespie 2-22, G Aldridge 2-48

    New Zealand all out 133
    P McGlashan 32, J Ryder 31
    A Flintoff 4-28, A Davies 2-38

    England won by 91 runs.


    I'm going to to a run down of stats after the tournament is over rather than match by match performances.

    Australia vs New Zealand
    New Zealand 192 all out
    A Ellis 55, N Broom 36
    S Clark 2-32, B Lee 2-33

    Australia 5-193
    M Clarke 54, P Jaques 38
    N McCullum 2-17, E Thompson 1-32

    Australia won by 5 wickets
    MOTM: M Clarke


    McIntosh replaced Horsley at the top of the order, and had a good impact but was out after his brisk start.

    New Zealand 119 all out
    J Ryder 26, T McIntosh 22
    S Harmison 5-38, R Sidebottom 2-16

    England 2-120
    M Trescothick 59*, O Shah 40*
    G Aldridge 1-22, M Gillespie 1-50

    England won by 8 wickets

    MOTM: S Harmison


    Things go from bad to worse with another humiliating defeat.
    Peter McGlashan was bumped up to three but failed with just 6 runs.

    Australia 3 for 280
    R Ponting 133*, P Jaques 89
    A Ellis 1-45, E Thompson 1-47

    New Zealand 104 all out
    R Nicol 24, A Ellis 23
    B Lee 3-28, G McGrath 2-16

    Australia won by 176 runs
    MOTM: R Ponting



    England vs New Zealand
    Broom was replaced by James McMillan. In the end we used 7 bowlers to little effect.

    England 4 for 242
    K Pietersen 99, A Strauss 60
    G Aldridge 1-30, M Gillespie 1-38

    New Zealand 8-173
    E Thompson 43*, T McIntosh 27
    A Flintoff 4-26, R Sidebottom 2-35

    England won by 69 runs
    MOTM: A Flintoff

    He was in really bad form (less than 1 star)



    In the test - we were just bowled out for about 375. Ryder the top scorer with 85. About to bowl.

    After such a strong start, the match just turned into an embarrassing lesson on how to play cricket properly. First our bowlers were toothless then our batsmen crumbled.


    New Zealand 372 all out

    J Ryder 81
    R Nicol 72
    G Singh 4-86
    S Maniar 3-102

    India 5 for 517 declared
    V Sehwag 240
    S Tendulkar 113
    A Ellis 2-65
    M Gillespie 2-151

    New Zealand 129 all out
    R Nicol 32
    A Ellis 20
    G Singh 4-25
    S Rao 3-39

    India won by an innings and 16 runs
    MOTM: V Sehwag


    XI for Second test
    1. N Horsley
    2. T McIntosh
    3. P McGlashan (c, wk)
    4. J Englefield
    5. R Nicol
    6. J Ryder
    7. A Ellis
    8. E Thompson

    New Zealand all out 348
    J Englefield 95
    A Ellis 77
    S maniar 4-96
    G Singh 3-71

    D Jadhav 143
    V laxman 108*
    B martin 2-108
    M Gillespie 1-65

    New Zealand 306 all out
    J Englefield 93
    J Ryder 60
    A Kumble 4-55
    H Singh 3-85

    India 2 for 150
    V Laxman 71*

    ODI Series. New Zealand versus India

    Match 1 was the lowest point yet in charge of the team. Just, awful.

    New Zealand all out 64
    J Ryder 17
    L Woodcock 11
    J Sharma 3-13
    A Kumble 2-5

    India 2 for 65

    R Dravid 23*
    G Aldridge 1-20
    M Gillespie 1-40

    India 3 for 230

    S Tendulkar 115*
