Haha yes they would. Diamanti would make a perfect country "allrounder."
Not that it matters, we still won so Croft can bitch all he likes.
Good performance by the lads, and stop hating Colly everyone, he's awesome.
There is a distinct lack of FFSing in this thread
Its because we're not losing FFS.
Not finishing top has really messed my weekend plans up, god damn

Congrats to the lads. I totally thought we were going to be blown out of this tourney as would England.
Excellent tactics by the NZ openers according to cricinfo of the guys playing their shots. McCullum all is forgiven.
I think winning this way - blowing England out for a low total was the only way we were going to win. If they scored 250 there was no way we were going to chase it without Ryder.
Nice move by Vettori calling Collingwood back.
Just came and saw the scorecard- what's going on with McCullum? Repeatedly plays the dull innings when fireworks are his strength, then in the one situation where 48 off 80 balls would arguably be more valuable, he hits out. Strange tstl.
Maybe it's a tactic to target the English bowlers. He's absolutely tortured Anderson in the past.
Can't believe Broad's wicket-tally, he's been way below his best in the tournament so far. And I won't hear it that wickets don't matter because it's ODIs, because let's face it in all three of our matches wickets have been key. They are what won us the previous two games, and gave us a sniff here.
Clearly he thought a quick 40-50 would take away all the pressure from our middle-lower order. He was right too.
In any case, all of those (very valid) points that you make also applied to every other ODI innings he's played in the past year or so, and it didn't stop him arsing about then getting out with a strike rate of 60 then.
