    We have no chance against Sri Lanka. Our batsmen can't play spin at all.

    Na, get Dilshan out and they won't score many and their seamers haven't been too great. As long as conditions aren't spinning and surely they won't continue to be then we should be able to beat them in SA.

    How did New Zealand manage to have a lower order collapse and no 5th bowler?

    I mean seriously how was this team supposed to compete? Were they hoping for the top order to score 350? For Bond to take a 7-fer?

    New Zealand and England have such shockingly badly selected sides.

    Scaly has a point, tbh. 10 overs from Ryder/Elliott/Guptill looks 10 too many, tbh. Situation crying out for Styris, IMHO.

    What happened to that other yarp who was looking to qualify for NZ? Myburgh? He still doing his residence?

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Styris can barely bowl these days, Elliott would be a better option. Can't believe we didn't bring a real back up batsman for the tour.

    If SA had played SRL at the Wanderers I am confident we would have won the game and SRL probably wouldn't have got 180.

    The only batsman who could deal with it is probably Sangakkara.

    That is why you cannot write-off NZL against SRL, especially at Wanderers. If the game was at Centurion I would say NZL had no chance. Bond and Mills will be a handful at the Wanderers if it continues to jag around. But even if the movement ends, which it will when the wicket gets used more, the bounce will be too much for the Sri Lankans.

    Good game from the boys today. We are slowly but surely getting there to our peak performance. Also Gibbs will give some good attacking flair on Sunday no matter how much I love watching Amla bat. That back foot punch of his is sensational.

    Dont worry people ive got the answers..........and the questions

    Trivia time people. Who is the only cricketer in NZ to never be on a losing ODI (mens) in 2009??

    Clue: He is the saviour of NZC and should be batting number 4 in this BC team right now?

    My top team all thing being equal

    Ryder
    Guptill
    Taylor
    Styris
    Elliott
    Broom
    McCullum
    Vettori
    Mills
    Tuffey
    Bond

    Thank you all and good night

    PS as for last nights game. I dont blame them for playing Hopkins. You simply cant play only 5 batsman. He had to play and its not his fault there were no other batting options in the squad. Thats a selectorial **** up.

    You also cant simply say Hopkins is rubbish because of his limited and sporadic chances record. If Broom gets that luxury then check out Hopkins first class and ODD record over the last couple of seasons.

    You must mean Diamanti


    I also supported the decision to play Hopkins and it showed with the way that our top 6 played that we certainly needed a contributor at 7. Except he clearly wasn't equipped to play well. We should have taken a batting back up player like Styris in the squad.
