straw man

International Coach
Playing Razzak like he's Bishin Bedi doesn't help the NZ cause either.

Don't think he moved one off the straight and not a lot in the way of overspin either. Looks ripe for positive intent from the batsmen.
Yeah the Guptill bowled was just a straight nothing-ball really. Franklin apparently opening for this reason - wonder if he'll look to hit straight over the top.


Waz has a little mancrush on McCullum, eh?

Lovely shot tho, tbf. Good use of the feet.

Still don't get Shakib, tbh. I know the stats don't lie (...) but never looks better than steady to me.

McCullum seems to be in decent form! Cracking knock in the T20 India, and now this.


International Coach
Boggles the mind as to how Franklin has somehow become a semi-regular in all three forms. Has done pretty much nothing noteworthy in internationals since his revival as a "batsman".
edit: you bash those minnows, BMac!
