    They all looked the same size. Watson, Johnson, Siddle looked a bit squashed in!

    I guess they are trying to copy the green jacket from the Masters.

    I guess it makes a change from getting a medal. But the colour was kind of ghastly. Maybe a pastel blue would have been better.

    Well done Australia, they were the best team out there today.

    Proudo f our lads but the bowling attack, generally our strength, was pretty depleted with the loss of Vettori, Tuffey and Oram. Ah well, they still bowled bloody well and if the batsmen had gotten us a good target to defend it could have been different, though with Redmond, Broom and co. in the batting it was always going to fall to the senior-ish players (the only senior player is McCullum really) and they didn't have their day today.

    Felt sorry for McCullum being thrust into the role of most important player and captaincy in the final.

    Interesting question. I think Oram is a better player and after the domestic season Franklin had he'd probably be ahead too. Judging by the make up of the squad he'd have been in ahead of Diamanti.

    Poor Diamanti. Gets all the crap from us for being crap and can't even get a chance to prove us wrong.

    it's a shame vettori was injured. If vettori and patel both played here I see them cutting through this aussie middle order with ease.

    I am taking your bait in this instance and will respond...

    Patel was expensive today. JS Patel 6.2 0 44 0 6.94

    Even if you take away the 2 sixes at the end - he would have been average at 5 an over.

    He bowled too short and wide. Normally he does averagely in ODIs but today he was slightly below average when we needed him to bowl outstandingly. Patel was the opposite of a canny bowler today. Maybe in 5 years from now when Patel is more experienced and smarter he can be relied upon to "cut through a middle order with ease".

    At least he got a game though in the tournament unlike the Diamond.

    He bowled well ok.
    McCullum doesn't know how to use an offspinner. They need to be handled with care. And the fields he set for him were abysmal. I think if vettori had been there patel would have bowled much much better.

    James Hopes consistently has strong domestic seasons for QLD every single year, he's easily a better batsman then Franklin and is more consistent a bowler although Franklin's bowling at his best is better.

    I think Hopes would make the NZ side, most likely as an opener.

    Just watched the highlights, I can see why McCullum keeps his place in the team

    He can't bat and his keeping has gone to the dogs, what a superstar we have on our hands 160 ODI's and not one century (a 100 against a 2ndXI Ireland team played in front of 50 people doesn't count). I wonder how many games it will take him to bring up the three figures.

    Oh and by just watching James Franklin this tournament he better not be in the test team. He's bowling 125K pies and he isn't moving his feet at all, he won't do anything in the test team.
