god this is torture.
Fun game! Both teams are through,...... and messing up.......
whew, please no more Hopkins! fly in Chris Martin to take his place as a batsman if we must.
so since they topped the group.. are they going to face pakistan in Semis?
Incidentally, haven't heard much from the Broom fans that were singing his praises when he scored that one innings in a warm-up game. Still looks a long way off the pace at international level (& not just today) for me. How NZ could use the experience of Pig-man Styris in the middle order right now, our is middle-order looks fragile as glass at the moment. Ridiculous that we don't appear to need him, he was our best ODI batsman just 18 months ago.

the losser of Pak v Aussie game I guess, unless Pak loss and India thrash WI by some margin., then India. Would rather we played Aussie in the semi.
Good win by NZ, but really can't see them winning the semi without Ryder, Oram & Tuffey....too many average players in the side to hide against a top class team like Pakistan, India or Aust.
That said, nice to see NZ now have a 35-29 win loss record against England in ODI's
Welldone to NZ Team. Performing in a tournament that matters.
