    Why not? I just assumed Hopkins was in the squad ahead of him because he was injured. Can't be any other good reason for that.

    That explains a bit more (about Elliott bowling). Wondered why Guptill was brought on before him in the last match.

    Really does affect our balance (again - how many ****ing injuries/ illnesses do we need this tournament??) having Elliott not bowling many and Ryder out. Wonder whether they'll fly in an opener like Redmond, or a number 3 like Styris or Fulton.

    Apparently Redmond is on his way.

    I suppose that's good, but he's another right handed attacking batsman like McCullum and Guptill

    Also, will Redmond be there in time to play in the next match?

    He's flying to SA from Queensland, I imagine he left this morning, so he'll have to adjust pretty quickly tonight.

    I'm not sure if Bond bowled badly last night or the batsmen just decided to hit him and all the shots came off.

    It's bloody tough opening up to Dilshan and Sanath. He should find Strauss and co to be a lot more respectful.

    Strauss enjoys pace on the ball though. Regularly punishes any slight err in line or length, except (broken record) the full ball outside off.

    Generally struggles a little bit later in the innings when pace is off the ball and he has to play big shots to keep the scoring rate up.

    0.4 Bond to Strauss, he's got em! Strauss pushes foward and Bond finds the edge.

    tbh Franklin was bowling lollipops, wasn't as impressive as his figures suggest (bowled mostly at the lesser batsmen). Was accurate enough but imo it's very frustrating to see him lobbing it down at 125kph when you know he can bowl so much faster. I think it's a rhythm/tecnhique thing as he seems to run in willingly enough but something's a little awry in the delivery stride.

    Maybe he does it for accuracy when he isn't holding a new ball? Really I have no clue, definitely looks fit and like he could get up to that pace but is clearly holding it back.

    But in a 5th bowlers role I'm very happy with how he bowled last night.

    I cant believe Styris still isnt there

    I know im getting boring but with the way this batting order has been playing and now Ryder out i guess the selectors are telling him something

    My other conspiracy theory is that if they really thought NZ could win this tournament they wouldve sent for Styris, even though he hasnt played any cricket since the T20 (not that i know of anyway), but instead went for Redmond because he has been. This is just nonsense though tbh

    Haha yeah that'd make sense because Styris IS THE FUTURE.

    Very happy with that anti-jinxing.

    Think we all did a good job on the anti-jinxing for the last match.

    Pity Athlai has ruined it for the next match by predicting we'll win the tournament.
