    Apparently the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy is up for grabs in this game. Didn't realise that.

    Tipping NZ here. With a large degree of confidence too.

    australia's winning streak will end tomorrow...

    some of the kiwi players have friends and family living christchurch, its going to be a big motivator.

    NZ should do well. Chappell-Hadlee trophy on the line. Should be a snorter.

    The team will be pretty fired up you would expect. Particularly the Christchurch players like Hamish Bennett. Should be an interesting match if both teams fire.

    Tipping Bennett to bowl the fastest and most aggressive spell of his career to date, but I also tip it will not be an economical one.

    You heard it here first etc etc

    There's always a question mark for me as to whether tragedies like the quake serve to motivate or distract sporting teams. My guess is that it will be a bit of both in this case, so I'm tipping us to win pretty comfortably.
    Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity.

    Will be a good game. Would normally back us but NZ beat the crap out of Kenya (admittedly not a hard task), we looked sorta scratchy against Zimbabwe and the Christchurch earthquake will probably motivate them.

    Still back us, but without a hell lotta confidence.
    5-0

    NZ are without their physio and trainer. Both of them have apparently rushed back home ,as their families have been affected in Christchurch LINK
