    New Zealanders always describe rugby as their religion, before using it as an excuse for violence and national self-evaluation.

    It's possible. But the top 5 will have to do most of the legwork. We also lack a bit of late hitting power at present. Mills can give it a thwack I suppose.

    Err let's get back to discussing the cricket. Will be interesting to see if Botha can get any assistance from this pitch.

    Kallis, and surprisingly Albertus, have put the brakes on at this juncture. SA may have a mental hurdle though in chasing in a must win match.

    They use to. Not like it use to be. Plus increased funding and a focus on abuse in the media has lowered the instances of spousal abuse.

    Get that religion in line!

    Kiwis dont have the attack to cause such mental hurdle though!

    New Zealand's batting's pretty suspect but, in one day cricket, their attack is very good.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    van der Merwe is getting some sharp turn here! It will be interesting to see how Vettori uses the pitch.

    A lot will rest on these two. New Zealand don't really have any big hitters to come (although Broom is capable of scoring quickly when he's on song), so these two will really have to do most of the work in lifting the run-rate.
