    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 due to the fact that nz have a very long batting lineup and enough guys in form there batting is going well enough to win. and sure they might not have enough strike bowlers most of the time but i think atm bond, oram, vettori and styris are all bowling very well and the balance of the attack is very good especially on these pitches. so yeah i reckon if they can put it together in the finals they can certainly win.

    Fleming's not saying they necessarily WILL win, just that they CAN. I think it's hard to argue with the suggestion that NZ can win, considering they've won 9 ODIs in a row now.

    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.

    What a worthwhile headline. I'm amazed he didn't say they had no chance.

    Hmm yeah I agree ^^^

    England could win it, but there is aabout o.1 chance of that actually happening.

    0.1 chance isn't bad for England, given Australia are somewhere between 0.5 and 1.

    I wasn't really using that way, just using it as a small number representing an equally small chance of England winning.

    Everyone's batting is suspect of times. And who gives a **** about having enough bowlers who bowl in short spells? You only need 10 overs from 5 bowlers!!!!!!!!!

    have u even watched any NZ games in recent times ?????

    Our strike bowling may be lacking.. but we have a team that can chase down 350+ with no big fuss..

    Our team bats till 9/10
