Thoughtit might be interesting to compare the NZ final teams from the Champs Trophy in 2000 to the 2009 team.
I'd say the 2000 team are stronger in the batting but the 2009 team are easily stronger in the bowling. Was amazed to see Styris at 9 and playing as a specialist bowler in those days.
Elliott reminds me very much of Roger Twose and the way he went about his cricket.
