Do quite like the way his mistimed lofts often find space and keep an innings chugging along with the field up. Happy accident Glenn Turner chipping, we're definitely going home with that in a Jimmeh selection.

I see Guptill is ruled out with a minor hamstring strain. Of course all we need from this match is to not lose by an enormous margin but that's by no means assured - our batting is thinner than a hwaffer thin mint

the wickets aren't as much of spinning wickets as I hoped they would be and hence am not quite as optimistic of Pakistan's chances as I was when the tournament hadn't started

BJ Watling our only reserve batman :/ oh well I am sure his 10 off 13 balls will come in handly.

I wouldn't even call him a reserve batsman. He's the reserve wicket keeper as far as I'm concerned.

Strange decision to have two reserve seam bowlers, imo. For the reserves I would have picked one spinner, one seamer, one batsman and one keeper. All bases covered.

I guess Oram will bat at 6 - very sceptical about this pretence that he's still a decent batsman.

Ugh Taylor. Made a complete hash of that.

Taylor is worse than Vaughan when it comes to dropping sitters. How many has he shelled over the past 12 months?

So they pick Milne ahead of a batsman and decide to give the new ball to Vettori. itstl.

We're looking ragged. Bowling is all over the show, with far too many balls going down leg. Need to tighten up.
