    *Official* New Zealand in West Indies, AUG 10 to 21, 2022

    Hope you're right, and also hope he succeeds.

    *Official* New Zealand in West Indies, AUG 10 to 21, 2022

    He did manage to be the leading run scorer in the 2015 world cup so he has some credentials. Because of his very solid white ball history it's very hard to see the selectors give him the flick unless he has a really bad trough. Would love to see more of Finn opening with him even though the jury...

    Jacques Kallis vs Allan Border

    Possibly he didn't like the English meat pies so much, so was a little unsettled.

    Jacques Kallis vs Allan Border

    Border was real good, 10/10 for guts and determination, but Jacques was better. Only thing surprising was he never kicked on with huge innings, 224 being his high score.

    Best knock by a tailender?

    Here's one that may not quite qualify for the OP but reckon it deserves a mention anyway. Ewen Chatfield was a number 11 and not a very good one at that. Around the mid 80s NZ were at home to Pakistan and Chatfield arrived at he crease having just witnessed Lance Cairns(father of Chris) get hit...

    *Unofficial* New Zealand Black Caps Thread

    Ask Trent Boult what's more important, his 300 wickets or his 3 kids and he'll tell you exactly where to f... off.

    *Unofficial* New Zealand Black Caps Thread

    Not sure why anyone's either surprised or disappointed with Trent's position. Sure we'll all miss him, but why should he do what the public want him to do. After 12 years of great service, why wouldn't you get your IPL and other 20/20 contracts in order before anything else? With 3 kids and the...

    its time to end the review system of umpiring

    There's no mention of increasing challenges, their quota stays the same. If the umpire decides not to challenge you'd think the players would be less inclined to waste one.

    its time to end the review system of umpiring

    Think umpires can only challenge for something technical like if a catch has carried or not. For a caught behind or LBW they just got to make a decision, sometimes very unsure themselves no doubt.

    its time to end the review system of umpiring

    When this thread first came out I thought it may well be dead after 3-4 days or so. To see it dribbling on after 10 is very surprising. Probably the reason for this is we went slightly off topic. Given just about every poster here feels the review system is here to stay,(and really why shouldn't...

    *Official* New Zealand in West Indies, AUG 10 to 21, 2022

    This could very well tell us where we actually stand. We may well discover that we are the worst number 1 ranked team of all time....but here's hoping not.

    Better test bat: Dravid vs Sangakkara

    Sorry mate didn't mean to give you a hug, don't go getting the wrong idea, thought for a sec it was the info bar,

    Better test bat: Dravid vs Sangakkara

    You mean you don't get extra points for being a wanker? I only wandered into this thread to see what Himannv had to say, and of course wasn't disappointed.

    Better test bat: Dravid vs Sangakkara

    Sanga but only just really. He was outstanding down under and solid everywhere else. Dravid in England was incredible, nearly 1400 runs in 13 tests at just a tad under 70. Maybe my memory serves me wrong here, but it's quite possible Rahul played a higher percentage than Kumar against top tier...

    its time to end the review system of umpiring

    I'd be interested to hear from anyone why having ''umpires challenge'' wouldn't be a reasonable idea.
