Moving him down the order might work, but I think he just needs to be given free rein.
    Yep, agree with this too. Responsibility seems to sit on McCullum like a tonne of bricks around his neck, rather than inspiring him to better performances.

    So it looks like a spinners wicket, if only we had another spinner who is in form, can bat a bit and is excellent in the field. This is pathetic, wasn't Glenn Turner also in the mix when Parore played as a batsman only so Lee Germon could keep wickets.

    Odd decision to take the spinners off.

    Ryder - mildly unlucky stunning catch
    Guptill - looked like a $1,000,000 and then that awful awful shot
    McCullum - grinding knock and was looking good and I was getting confidence. Saw he was on 44 and knew he was going to try hit something and then he got out. Was spewing. ****ing idiot.
    Direbirds FTW!

    Nah, agree with Bahnz. Should have let the spinners pile on the pressure.

    This is pathetic.

    No wonder why SAF were not interested in Elliott...

    I find it funny that Elliott is South African, yet is the most traditional NZ-style one day player in the team. Looks innocuous, nudges the ball around bowls dibbly dobblies. What a champ.

    Taylor 29 from 71. Full credit to him and all for not reverting to the slog sweep, but this is not a test match and that strike rate is no good. Perhaps he's demonstrating why he often reverts to the slog sweep when runs are hard to come by.
