    NZ vs Canada

    This should be interesting.

    It's black against red. I'm predicting a New Zealand win, based on the fact that by mixing black and red, the colour you end up with is much closer to black than red.
    life's a gift thats why they call it the present

    It's understandable that Sunil had developed this peculiar colour fixation. It's all down to playing for too long in the 'other game' thread in 'off-topic'. Working backwards, we have:

    colour
    pretty
    clothes
    cardigan
    wool
    sheep

    see? Inevitable.

    well if this theory is correct then.
    NZ vs AUS.
    Black vs Yellow.
    NZ should win...

    But then I believe that Black is the Dominant colour out of all the other team colours so I don't think it works.

    Anyway back to the subject:
    New Zealand should win but they need to win well. I am picking a thrashing.

    NZ will win this, but the key is by how much they will win by.

    IMO im more interested in the S.L v S.A match because if Sri Lanka win then NZ's run-rate won't matter & South Africa are out of the equation.

    NZ I think deserve to make the Super 6, they won some very tough matches & really should have beaten Sri Lanka aswell.

    Here's the deal:

    If South Africa beat S.L then:

    Kenya & South Africa qualify because they will have both won 2 of the 3 games between the 5 of them. with NZ & S.L left fighting it out on run-rate.
    Now Sri Lanka have + 1.4 but if they lose that will go down, but by how much we don't know.
    NZ is + .4 & they will need to monster Canada to make sure they have a good chance should Sri Lanka lose.

    If Sri Lanka beat South Africa then:

    Kenya, NZ & Sri Lanka qualify because everybody will be on different points.

    !!!!! John Davison is outstanding. Every shot he has played has been off the absolute epicentre of the middle of the bat.

    67* off about 40 balls, just insane batting & NZ will need to double his effort from here on in.

    go Canada, gee they (davison) are going well. id really like to see NZ go down from here, but some how i doubt canada can bowl them out cheaply enough.

    I don't know about you guys, but Nicky de Groot has been a big disappointment to me in recent games. Such a promising start in his first 3 games followed by consistent displays of non-ducks of late.

    Today, he's actually, beginning to look good.

    That'll put an end to it - praise from me. He's got no chance now.

    However Sri Lanka is by far the superior team as their record against NZ in recent times is phenominal ( 17-3). :wow:

    Well total crap bowling from Oram, Adams & Styris.
    NZ need something like 197 off 19 overs to get a nrr of 1.00 which would probably be enough to get them through should Sri Lanka lose tonight.

    I actually can't really explain what the hell NZ were doing..bowling short to the tail-enders when all the Canadian batsmen had been out to pitched up deliveries.

    NZ need minimum a nrr of .80 I think to have any chance should Sri Lanka fail.

    Legglancer: yup thats right, but we're talking about just that one game & if anyone had bothered to stay with Styris NZ would have won that match.

    Anyway even if NZ make it to the Super 6 Im really concerned about the bowling. NZ have too many bounce bowlers (Oram, Adams, Mills, Tuffey) who will get absolutely smashed on good batting wickets.

    May the force be with them when they bat.

    The fact is, is that apart from Australia all the other teams have played very poorly against the minnows, perhaps apart from Zimbabwe aswell when they thrashed Namibia.

    And today was no exception because it looked like NZ were just expecting Canada to give them wickets.

    Luckily the outfield is lightning & the boundaries are small...I have a feeling Andre Adams may open or bat at 3, because they will need to go at 8 or 9 runs an over.
