**Official** Super 8 Group 1 Discussion - Eng, WI, SL and NZ

straw man

International Coach
Almost an excellent French cut there.

Our lower order hitting is definitely a weakness in this side. Even weaker when you promote Oram over Franklin too 8-)


Not Terrible
Haha Franklin why didn't you run the second straight away? Trying to preserve the specialist #8s average. WAG.


International Coach
Poor effort in the last 2 overs, but great bowling from SL. Contrast that to the 32 we conceded against Pakistan on Sunday, and you really see why they're a top team.

Sri Lanka to win with 4 balls to spare.


International Captain
Seriously how in the world could you justify Oram over Franklin and McCullum over Williamson? Spastic decisions like that cost us making 180+


International Debutant
Sigh, we were looking on target for 190 at one point. Going to need to bowl well methinks. And not drop any catches.

Sounds like the sort of conditions where NZ should look to attack rather than defend. Sri Lanka genuinely beat the bat a few times in the early overs but didn't make it count. I can't see NZ building run-rate pressure without taking wickets.
