    Dire dismissal.

    Um, why is Vettori coming in ahead of Franklin?

    Jayasuriya is having a good day with ball and that will boost his confidence when he comes onto bat!

    Taylor has played 66 ODIs which is more than Guptill and Elliott combined. Same goes for runs too.

    What an absolute disgrace of a shot from Broom given the match situation. Far out....

    All on Vettori and Franklin, really hoping we can pass 230 now. Hopefully Guptill can bat through.

    Broom is the biggest fraud since Lou Vincent. Just can't really bat.

    Ah, it was short and wide and asking to be hit - would be bad cricket not to have a go at it. He just made a complete mess of it.

    Was referring to how Ryder has played about the same as Guppy and Elliott yet was an established batsman.

    Ok. Ryder averages almost 50 in tests too. So he has proven that he is an international class batsman, to me at least. It is too soon to call the other two proven yet.

    Yes they are Ryder, Taylor and Guptill.

    Half of our team are the future stars, our problem is we have no veterans.

    40 isn't necessarily better than 0 when it comes off 70 balls and a good score is 300. But more importantly, he's not actually scoring any more runs than he did when he batted aggressively. He's just taking more time to score them.

    Which is down to the selectors really who seem to refuse to pick batsmen who are older than 30.

    A good score on this pitch is 250.
