Proud to be a Colt!
M Hopgood: Followed up his debut century with a half century. Most likely the most impressive begin to a List A career by a Colts batsman in their history. In fantastic form at the moment, and will look to transfer that form into the first class arena. 8/10
simply because they do not have enough strike bowling except for bond and their batting is suspect at times
I think the next couple games we will get a lot better idea of where NZ really are. They probably played four easier/out of form sides in the Super 8s so far (including the England match). If they can keep their form going against South Africa, Sri Lanka and Australia, then they would have be a very good chance at winning the whole thing. On paper they have a good bowling attack for these conditions and they bat very deep.

I like the positive attitude from the Kiwi camp but its getting tiresome hearing all this talk from them talking up their chances in the media. It's a no-brainer that if you have a half-decent side and reach the knock-out stage then you can win the world cup - 4 teams will have that chance, not just Australia.
It's like they are continuosly trying to reassure us (NZ fans) that they have a chance when it's just pointing out the obvious - perhaps they just want to be feared or respected by the opposition......something to do with their ego or that they've been psychologically burnt from all those losses in the past.
Sri Lanka CAN win it!!!!!!!! It's technically possible for them to do so!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hold the back pages!!!!!!!
I wasn't really using that way, just using it as a small number representing an equally small chance of England winning.
